A snack-sized post while you’re waiting

A little dialogue from right after we started the three-month break. Hubby, mocking The Talk: “Sometimes, when a man and a woman love each other very much -” Me: “- it’s not enough.”

The May, June, July, and August Non-News

Super-Secret Post Originally written end-of-month-#8 Life has been overhauled and our plan got a bit changed as a result.
