OK, I'm back......

Due to financial reasons, we had to cut back spending on non-essential expenses, one of which was internet access.

Shortly after we went offline, PeppA's mom had to be transported to the hospital by ambulance. It's been almost three weeks, and we aren't expecting her to be with us much longer, probably next week. PeppA basically has to decide when to take her mother off of life support. Man, this bites.
