My excuse for all the cricket-chirping is that I am acting in a play. We began rehearsing in December, and the first performances were last weekend. This is taking TONS of time!

Correction to my earlier post: I said "admitting" to being lonely. But there is nothing to admit to! No wrong-doing to confess to! No reason for guilt at all!
