Finding Inspiration…

I’ve been reading a fabulous blog written by a woman whom I will come right out and say makes me envious!

Because it’s fun … and I can…

On a somewhat lighter note than yesterday… Thanks to the divorce-from-hell finally being over, I can now take my munchkins outside the county without written permission from their father – something that rates a difficulty level along the lines of having the Pope declare homosexual marriage a blessed sacrament, sanctified and happily performed by all…
