Today is my last day in my thirties.

I just thought we all might like to know. Here is how I will spend it: Wake up at 5:50, in time to get Kid 2 to the Cross Country bus at 6:00. Except (ha!) the bus isn’t going until 6:45. So, fold some laundry and answer email and order those violin books from random […]
