for not writing more during this summer I have loved like no other. We were off having marvelous adventures or I was busy exhausting myself on the long walks that helped me lose sixteen pounds so far over the last two glorious months. Oh, I composed plenty in my head as I hit the pavement on the way to catch the view of that morning's sun on the waves from the platform over Kenilworth Beach, but the time to put it all down evaporated quickly. I'll try to compose a highlights reel soon as the girls start school.
No apologies for my latest post on Chicago Moms Blog, even though it seemed to infuriate at least one reader which reminded me of the story of Rumplestiltskin and the troll who wanted to take the woman's child for no reason until the woman found out his name which enraged him so he tore himself in two.
And no apologies needed, only congratulations to Kim Tracy Prince who was the name selected at random (read: Mia pulled one slip out of the splayed deck in my hand) to win the $25 Donor Choose gift card! Congrats to Kim and to the lucky teacher to whom she will pass on the funds! Thanks to all who entered and here's the pitch, please consider funding a project on your own - any bit helps.
