Sorry again for such a long absence. My darling, sweet mother has been in the hospital for the last few days. I've spent hour after hour in her room, looking at magazines, eating in the cafeteria and dreaming of a warm bath. The doctors and nurses were extraordinary and I'm so thankful for the care that she received.
Now, after multiple days in sweatshirts, yoga pants and tennis shoes, I am dreaming of a little festive glitter in my wardrobe.
I'm so sorry for my long absence...we have been busy with my daughter's 13th birthday this week. We've had parties with friends, parties with grandparents, a sleepover party and then a party for just us! After all, 13 is a big one! All that partying has left me thoroughly exhausted!
I have a long, overdue appointment with my soaking tub like this, with my DVR remote, my book and a glass of pinot noir.
