Back from a year in Australia
Today's the day!! Our daughter Abby is returning from a year in Australia! I don't think I've been this excited about an impending arrival since 1982, when my school was chosen to be Chattanooga's official welcoming committee for Nancy Reagan.

Pictures are a walk down memory lane
We were looking through pictures taken at a writer's conference I recently attended.

"She has really nice hair," hubby remarked about my friend Jill.

"Isn't it gorgeous?" I responded. "It's like pure, black silk. She said her mom is Native American."

"What tribe?" he asked.

I gave him my best "are you serious" look. Only a boy who has grown up on a reservation would even think to ask that question.

Life is much harder when you are in junior high school
I recently had lunch with a friend who shared concerns about his daughter's school struggles. "Why are Junior High girls so mean? Seventh grade is like introductory level petty."

It was in seventh grade, when I had my first sleepover. I was beyond excited that Kim and Amy were going to spend the night. My mom was even allowing us to sleep in the living room instead of the bedroom I shared with my younger sister. Granted, we didn't have cable TV, or an Atari station, and my dad was kind of goofy, but these girls were my friends, so I didn't think those things mattered.
