I have been counting the days down since July 31. As a business owner and new single parent since that day, I have a new appreciation for freedom. I made it through August with difficulty but I know it will all be okay. The social life I once had is no longer. So you won't be seeing me out and about. I really like going to all the local digs and supporting local businesses and events. But it it just near impossible to be at everything that I would like to attend. So I will be at everything in spirit and be wishing I was there. It is good for me and my kids and someday soon I will grow to like staying home and slowing down. Maybe.
