Classes have begun

Matt at WestConn 9/13/08
It's so hard to believe that, that time of year has started again. I'm taking 5classes but 3 are on-line, thank goodness for on-line classes. So far so good - but it is only the end of week 2.

I've gotten involved w/a new fund raiser. It's against domestic violence. It is happening at Joe's in New Milford, CT on Oct. 2nd. Anyone wanting more info. let me know.

My mom's surprise party is coming along great - my little party has turned into quite a big deal, I mailed out 57 invitations.

Went to watch Matt's soccer game last night and he played - photo. It was so exciting to watch him - he truly is a young man now.

Brandi is now settled into Saratogo Springs, NY. She has a job working full time as a manager of a hair salon. I'm looking forward to going out to meet her and see what her place is like

Empty Nesters

We had our first empty nesters dinner tonight. There is a group of us who sent our babies out into the college world recently. We've decided to start a new club and about once a month - if not more we will get together.

We moved Brandi down outside of Philly this past Sunday. She has a cute place and she is sharing it with a friend she went to school with. The dogs made the trip with us - as you can see from the picture they are close in size.

I moved Matt into his dorm room this past Thursday - so it is official we are childless. It will be a new experience for Wayne and I. In the 22 years we've been married we've only spent 9 months without children. We'll have to get to reknow each other.

My classes start up tomorrow so it will be back to the books for me.
