My oldest is moving back to school today. It's the third year she's moved away from me to do this, so you'd think I'd be used to it. I'm not. I miss my daughter when she's not here at home... Continue reading

It's happening. I pulled out a pad and made a list tonight. I then opened my day timer, put in the pages for 2014 and started (with a pencil) filling in all of our family's fall activity commitments. That I'm-busy-and-I'm-going-to... Continue reading
