*peeks head in*
Hi gang... I'm glad to see the thread picking up again. I've been out of town (well, from my July home base - my parent's home in MI) and I come back to 5 pages of stuff! Hello to the newbies, Happy bday to Oleander, Congrats to Una and BSL! Loved all the stories. I'll save "advice" for times I'm asked!
I had a good weekend. I went back to my home town for my 20th HS reunion. I got to stay with my best friend and her family. I was without my kids. It was a wonderful couple of days - visiting, laughing and hanging out. Unfortunately, the weekend was also full of crying. A dear friend from home passed away yesterday. She was only 6 years old. She was suffering from lymphoma. Since I am in MI, I will not be home for the services and beach party, but I will say my good byes on my own. My son, 5 1/2, is doing great. He has asked a couple questions, but has moved on like a 5 year old can.
I'll be checking in from time to time, but my heart just isn't in it... For now.
