Yay! Camping in the most beautiful place on earth! Mark Twain National Forest. It should be a lovely couple of days. Can't wait for the fire, the music and the conversation. Hope my long johns do the trick, though. Since it's deer season, we won't be hiking which is a shame.

My dear daughter is doing well with her grades and much better with her anxiety. She is very slowly gaining some degree of connectivity with the campus life and her dorm companions, including her roomies. I'm proud of her for figuring out how to make the grades because she gains so much more confidence from seeing her accomplishments than if I just told her she was doing well.

Boy is so much fun to have around. I think I mentioned he is opening up about what is going on in his head and school. I don't even have to ask. He supplies the info. We got into a discussion yesterday morning just before school and I hated to leave before we finished it was that good and fun. He is also so much more lovey than I ever thought he would be.

Things seem to be good all around. This is where the family tradition of asking what's going to
go wrong comes in to play.

I miss Simon.

I've noticed a lot of men who enjoy NASCAR and hot rods are online on the dating sites. I wonder if there is a correlation between their hobbies and their marriage status? -she said sarcastically.
