No idea how I fit it all in there

I took inventory of my tiny little purse the other day, and found clues to my status as a mother all over the place. Read about it in this weekend's "Just a Minute" column.

Foster Care Article

Today's "Milton Makes a Difference" is about the Festa family, who have taken foster children into their home for the past two years. I am amazed at foster parents and their children, who make room in their families and their hearts for kids who have nowhere else to go. They're good people and I hope you enjoy reading about them.

Time Warp

Seriously? My last post here was July 10? Wow. I lost nearly two weeks in there somehow.

I do have a few "real" blog posts swimming around in my head, but have no time for that at this very moment. For now, you will have to make do with two recent columns:

1. Today's local humor column for Milton Patch. Everyone can use guidelines now and then.
2. Last week's "Just a Minute." Grease is still the word, but let's just leave most of the other words out of it.

The Ice Cream Man

This week's humor column for Milton Patch was about the Ice Cream Man. You know, the guy who tries his hardest to ruin your kids' appetites right before dinner? Read it here, and take a tip from a friend of mine -- if your kids are young enough, start calling it "The Music Truck." That might work for a few years.

Abby is growing up. Sometimes she's very much still a little girl, but then I blink and she's almost a teenager. She had her first sleepover last month, and it's the subject of this past weekend's family column for the Patriot Ledger. Enjoy.
