. . . just want you to know that I will miss meeting you all. I'm in New Hampshire visiting my parents. My mother was diagnosed with lung cancer in April, and she's been going through heavy-duty radiation and chemo treatments. Because we faced a tough decision about placing J in a wilderness program (and quite frankly, husband was freaking out about it), I wasn't able to visit my parents until J went to Georgia. In spite of my mom's fatigue, we're having a really nice time. Plus I'm able to help my dad out with the errands and cooking. husband and I will be picking A and M up from their overnight camp in Maine this weekend and bringing them back to New Hampshire so they can see my parents, too. In any event, I just wanted you to know why I won't be joining you. Hope you have a wonderful time!!! I expect to see pictures and a long write-up posted on the board early next week.
