Your boys are blessed to have you, and your blog readers are as well. You are one of my favorite Moms!!!


Sounds like you have many things in place to keep your family glued together. Creativity, optimism and distraction is the key plus LOTS and LOTS of LOVE.

You will have a huge list of things to do upon his return. Has that time come now? Take Care!


Where you could easily wallow, you rise above. I love reading your posts.

I'm sure it's not an easy journey, but your spirit and creativity make it tolerable, and help your kids deal with the struggles of separation. Wonderful stuff.

(And by the way, I'm still expecting a book sometime in your future. You're far too good of a writer to ignore your muse forever.)


sounds like you are making the best of a horrible company tradition: a few people trapped on a boat at sea on a regular basis.

i miss the boys and you the most. oh and clive too of course. all my love!!
