My blogging has been a bit slow these days. It's not that I'm not busy doing "things", but I'm not doing anything that's much worth blogging about. Since I'm trying to use this as a journal of sorts I feel the need to check in every now and then. So here I am, checking in as I'm getting ready to check out...of Ashland I mean! We're heading to Chicago tomorrow to see my Momma and Sis and enjoy this lovely Fall weather we've been having.
