Only one more week and I'll be by the sea for a long poetry weekend. The stars must be aligned because not only did I win the scholarship, but there was some brief panic over who was going to watch J. and pick up T. from school next Friday, as it turns out Jim is off that day. Now I can go without any guilt over money, or neglected children and enjoy myself completely. I so need this. And when I get back there will only be 9 weeks left until spring!
