Back from AWOL

Last week was Spring Break for the two older kids, plus their wonderful Aunt Amazing came in town. (She is a brilliant scientist, a marathon runner, and head-turning gorgeous, even in tshirts and ponytail.) Life is not fair, but she's also the kind of person who looks up her niece/nephew's school schedule up on the computer, then gets tickets to come spend their Spring Break with them. So we forgive her for receiving more than her fair share of God's gifts.

Let me tell you something. Single + childless + marathon runner = energy out the whahoo. The zoo, the children's museum, the park, the playground. AND cleaned out our garage. AND went through the girls' clothes, separating out what doesn't fit. (Which any mom can tell you is an onerous job.)

Tomorrow, the kids go back to school. Whew. I need a vacation.

Welcome back!

Thanks for your advice on "The Secret." I, too, wondered what the fuss was about and did some reading on line about it. I do believe we are on the same wavelength when it comes to being skeptical about these things, which makes me smile. At this point, they can keep it a &^*%$#@ secret. It's all about making a buck.

Oh! I want one of them "Aunt Amazings"! We go on break next week and I'm taking the week off and we're doing really exciting things, like getting our teeth cleaned and having a garage sale!

Looking forward to more posts.
