fall cleaning

 Well THAT took longer than I thought.

I can't believe it....

I haven't posted in so long, and yet I still have visitors. And people asking me when I'm gonna start writing again. Or if I died. Life has been crazy here - I'll circle back around and explain later - for now my goal is to get all those things I have been scribbling on receipts and napkins posted where they belong.

all set for the first day of school
