Unplanned Break

I was hoping to be well on my way to validating the entries for my blogiversary contest and picking winners by now, but that and many other things got put aside when I got the news Friday night that my sister-in-law had passed away after her two and half year battle with ovarian cancer. It's taken me until today to be able to write even a few words about it on my journal. It's going to take at least a few days more before I'll be online again more than in a few bits here and there. I thank you for your understanding and patience.
