I am quite happy this morning. Perhaps it had something to do with crashing in the spare room at 8:00 pm, perhaps it had something to do with *just the right amount* of gorgeous wine, perhaps it had to do with the perfectly warm but not at all too hot weather, or perhaps the fabulous […]
(you will normalize….don’t it make you feel alive?) The house is oddly still empty. Hayley is at play practice – she’s playing the piano for the entire Missoula Children’s Theatre play that is being performed on Friday. Just a little pressure. And she’s sick. Poor kid.
