Char, as most will attest, I have not been here for a while either. My reasons differ greatly, but, this is a great reason to at least show up and welcome you back and wish you well. You've been missed. My mother has a favorite verse she quotes often: "...and it came to pass", and then she adds, "It did not come to stay!" You have come a long way and know you have support from every corner.
"There will be days when the fishing is better than one's most optimistic forecast, others when it is far worse. Either is a gain over just staying home."
