Thanks All for the welcome. I was stuck within a half-hour reach of my dispatch center this weekend — not a fun chain to be stuck to, i’ll tell you that, so I’m happy so many of you went out and had fun. Congrats to Heli Groupie on the new ice!
Fire Momma, you were asking for some book recommendations? I highly recommend both “Good in Bed” and “In her shoes” by Jennifer Weiner. Very good books about family and love and “real” women trying to find their way in the world … both will make you laugh and maybe cry (if you tend towards crying about books, which i do.)
