I apologize profusely for my long absence. I last posted just before my daughter graduated, but I had no idea how my life would blow up in my face for a few weeks! I want to be careful to keep this from getting too personal, but let's just say that my husband and I looked very hard at whether this marriage is going to continue to work out or not. I am in counselling, he is making some changes and we are taking it one step at a time.
Meanwhile, my daughter graduated in a lovely ceremony where she looked in her words; "like a pretty freaking princess!" I'll be sure to post more about that later today. Brag pics WILL be included. ;) We also took a trip (surprise, surprise!) to the Edmonton area where she visited with her biological father. I drove (roughly 1200KM each way - somewhere in the 750 mile area) and it was a really cool experience. More blog material! Yay! :)
Some exciting things are happening. I will be teaching a series of music classes at our local rec centre starting next week. My younger daughter started high school at the high school from which I graduated (some) years ago. My older daughter decided to stay with us for at least the next year and has begun a job search. I have also joined Lisa Cash Hanson's Blogs to Riches Club where I will learn a lot more about blogging for money and how to be a successful blogger. So here is to a really exciting fall! Hope you all had a wonderful summer!
