I've been gone for a while and here's why: The entire family found out that my aunt had stage 4 cancer in November. We all did what we could and spent as much time with her as possible. She died 2 days after Christmas and after all the family had been called in from across the US her funeral was held on the 2nd of January. About a week or so after this I caught the flu- very badly. and a week after recouping from the flu I got an ear infection which when cured turned into a second infection in the opposite ear!
So I have dubbed 2013 my annus horribilis as it doesn't seem to be getting any better. :( I tell everyone this as I'll always be a ColourLover, but due to the year's misfortunes I might not be here that much- or have long absences. :/
