For the last 3 weeks I have had one or both my "local" kids home for  weekends and  longer.  I am amazed how little time I end up with for blogging, reading blogs, etc with them around!  Now they are like grownup company and we spend a lot of time hanging out and talking. When they go out with their friends, it tends to be late in the evening when I am getting my doze on.

Nothing to do with the post - just liked this...

I just got back from San Francisco after returning Ally to her apartment.  We made a contribution to the economy while she was home for 12 days and Tom asked me please to stop shopping.  I did make one more run through the grocery store to fill her frig.  She got straight A's last semester and starts summer school on Monday - it was the least I could do for such a stellar student!

I am so behind on all my reading and hope to catch up in the next week.  Not only am I behind on my favorite blogs but I haven't followed Tom & Lorenzo or any of my  news shows or sites.  I am so out of the loop.

 Fortunately, I'm also feeling so much better - the trees or whatever it was finished spewing pollen and I am nearly back to normal.  Sleeping well and generally breathing better.  So lucky that it is only a few weeks of misery for me - so may people suffer much longer.

I even have some blogging subjects in mind - so I guess I am getting my groove back all the way around.  Just in time for summer to start.

Congratulations to your daughter on her excellent grades. Totally deserving of a shopping spree!

I know exactly what you mean about being out of the loop.

I think it makes me feel older that all five of the 18-28 year-olds in my house go out right when I'm going to bed!

Hooray for your daughter's academic achievements! I agree with Heidi -- your girl totally deserves a shopping spree with her mom. :)

With kids out of school, starting a new job, and temporary loss of a laptop, I've been out of the loop for quite a while. So I understand!
