Our New Normal

Did you think I'd disappeared? As I mentioned on the Not Just Baby Brain Facebook page, we're still getting settled into our new routine now that school has started. Both of my daughters are in school full-time, and I expected to be bored and lonely while they were there.

I love to kayak. Who knew?

I have never been what anyone would classify as "sporty", but I do try to stay active. I'm not a big fan of going to the gym or doing exercise DVDs (although I do them out of necessity). What I really enjoy are ways that I can be active, but also spend time with my family. Something like biking.

We live about a 30 second drive from a conservation area that has a public boat launch dock, so when the end of Read more [...]
