And then there were EIGHT!?!?

And then there were EIGHT!?!?

So much has happened this year! My family has doubled unexpectedly (among other things) so I’m setting new blogging goals! Say a prayer, wish me luck, and sacrifice a chicken under the light of a full moon that this is one goal I’ll be able to stick to!

Warning:  Today’s post is not going to be funny or upbeat.  I’m about to be serious (for once). Mauerbauertraurigkeit – n. the inexplicable urge to push people away, even close friends who you really like. I saw this word on my Twitter feed today.
