A few weeks ago, maybe more, I SHOCKED THE WORLD when I confessed that mayhaps, sometimes, just a little, I get blog block.
No, really. Brian goes on work travel for a few days, and I completely degenerate. I will be totally honest: I ate a bag of pretzels and a cup of Swiss Miss pudding for dinner tonight, because I COULD NOT BE BOTHERED to make RAMEN.

You can give more than you think.
