Happy Holiday Weekend, Ladies!
It has been quite a long time since I visited this lovely site.  And, quite frankly, I don't know why.  I guess life just gets in the way sometimes.

A few weeks ago, our one-time aupair, Frauke, emailed me and mentioned she found my blogs on this site and why did I stop?  Good question and I have no answer.  Quite a lot has happened since my last visit.  

One, I am now the big 5-0.  Oh yes, I know it’s just a number, but I’ve struggled with it.

Two, I am the mother of a college-bound daughter, who after applying to 11, yes 11, colleges, has FINALLY decided to Ramapo College where she was accepted into the nursing program.  Ramapo is an hour away so she will be staying on campus and all fees and acceptance notices have been signed and paid!  Oh, did I mention that she told me she is NOT ready to move away from home?  Part of me is thrilled, the other part of me is torn because I know I should guide her to living on campus because being accepting into a nursing program in the freshman year is a BIG deal.  Her sister has informed us that if she DOES NOT stay on campus, she will never come out of her room.  estatic

Three, the husband who threw me a curveball, well, we are still married thanks to a new member of our family—Mr. Prozac ... what a difference it has made ... and hasn’t.  He quit another job ... more on that another time.

Fourth, I am so happy to be back.
