Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Our typical chaos

This is always a hectic time of year. School doesn't end until late June and the weather has been wet and miserable lately so now it's a mad rush to cram everything in. Baseball games have been cancelled or postponed all season long and now we are trying to get through the playoffs. Our youngest son is a senior in high school and that's keeping us busy too. This last month will be filled with ceremonies, picnics, dinners, banquets, exams, rehearsals, papers to sign, lost books to find, fees to pay, graduation to attend and lots and lots of parties. There will also be lots and lots of tears...mostly from the moms who are conflicted between the disbelief that their baby is graduating and moving on and relief that their baby is able to graduate and is finally moving on - and out!

Obviously I haven't been keeping up here lately but I have plenty to read and reviews to write. Last week it took me three days to read the last chapter of my book! My poor hammock has been waterlogged from all the rain but today the sun was shining and the hammock was calling my name. I'm going to squeeze in some quiet time and I'm determined to read more than 1/3 of a chapter. Now I just need to decide which book from the large pile I'll relax with...


  1. Wow, this must be a bittersweet time for you.

  2. Congratulations on your son's graduation.And, I didn't know you were writing a book. Do tell!

  3. My daughter just graduated, too! And I know what you mean about this being a crazy time; it really has been!
