I have been absent a while here and the simple truth is I am just too busy to think let alone blog. It's all been good stuff though so I'm taking a moment to share.
My mom and dad recently passed their 45th wedding anniversary. I had always planned that I would give them a blow-out 50th but for many reasons it does not look like that is going to be a reality. My mom is not well and while she is not dying or anything (not trying to be dramatic but also trying to preserve some privacy) she is not well. So the 45th gave me an oppotunity to celebrate a beautiful marriage.
It also gave me a reason to rent a beach house and sneak a bunch of people down south for a party!
Thanks to everyone who helped me, Maureen, Eileen, Patty, Patti, Chris, Mike and everyone else who came. It was wonderful.
