The kids are grown and when the three dogs and four cats who live with us move on to that meadow in the sky we will be ready to throw responsibility out the window and have some fun. Until then I work as an office manager. In the summer I go outside and paint plein air whenever possible. Then I spend a little bit of time writing. Some day I hope to spend a lot more time writing, but for now I feed the animals and grab a few moments here and there.
