Coming Attractions

These beautiful women will be arriving back in New York soon. My mom and my niece will fly here from Jamaica the very same evening my two children and their friends arrive home from their long weeks at camp (well, it was long for me). After serene summer evenings of just my husband and me, who are just now mastering the art of being footloose and carefree, the house will be jam packed again. But just for a week. Then the college kids go off to school as we settle in for our daughter's final year of high school and college visits and applications this fall. My husband and I are going to enjoy the excessive liberty of this last week before the hordes arrive because very soon, we will be busy. Not complaining.

  2. And that is just the problem- you get used to it being one way after great and hard adjustment and then it all swings 180 degrees and then...again.
    I am NOT a person who accepts change easily. Even good change. I wish I was. I hope you are.
