85. I Am All Three

Mother, wife, writer.  Responsible for the playdates, the Target runs, the lunches packed in a hurry.  In charge of the marriage, the social life, the husband’s dirty socks.  And for me, I write.

  2. Of all the things you do and share in your life....You have something that's all yours. Me, too! It's important.

  9. As a father of grown kids, I know that the time you regain when the kids are more independent, can be enormous. It's a bit of sad time, but the writing can fill the void. Nicely done!

  10. Being a mother can be so many things under one umbrella. The "writing is for me" is probably your salvation!! Mine is off at school now, making her own "three things in one": Artist, Drummer, Lesbian. Not necessarily in that order, but art is always first! Amy
