I’m back from Vacay! We had a fantastic time. I didn’t want to come back to cold, dreary Spokane. I really, really miss the Bay Area. You just can’t beat the weather there. I just wanted to touch bases. I’ll post more in the coming days.

I wanted to thank all of you for your very kind messages on my last post. You’re comments really helped me in may ways to be more positive about this daunting birthday. And I really, really appreciate the encouragement about my wanting to write. Thank you very much. I feel all warm and fuzzy now.
