For all who are interested, I've been terribly busy with life these past 6-8 months. When I hung out with you guys at Ren Faire back in September, I was planning to return to being involved with the GS, but life just hasn't allowed that to happen. Here's a re-cap of some of the things that have been going on so far: * My mom passed away of pneumonia, complicated by an on-set of acute Leukemia, back in October. * I have had to help out with my dad since the loss. * I Re-established a relationship with my sister since my mom's passing. * I proposed to my girlfriend from St. Louis at Christmastime and will be getting married in June of this year. * Been working on the wedding/honeymoon plans since then. We're taking a cruise to the Mexican Riviera: Puerta Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas. So you can imagine why I've been non-existent lately. Hopefully after the wedding and honeymoon is over and life settles down, I might be able to have time to start going to the meetings/outings. Until then, I miss you guys!
