Our apologies go out for being so lacking in the posts this week. Between Jordan preparing for midterms in school, and my own general life complications, we were unable to put out posts Monday and Wednesday. This week has the potential to be another busy week, but we will attempt to put something up on the proper days. As always, thanks for reading and following our work, your support is greatly appreciated.
