It's been a while since I've had the time and inclination to visit blogs and to actually write. Forgive me. My MIL who has been fighting cancer for three years died Tuesday night. And while she passed with dignity and was comfortable to the end, we are totally stunned and drained. Now we know what anemia feels like.
- I am a retired English teacher and department head, the mother of three, grand mother of three, and have been married to the same man for 42 years. I subscribe to Dr. PM Forni's concept of Civility. I was born in South Philadelphia and grew up in the 'burbs. I love soft pretzels and cheesesteaks, the Phillies, the Eagles, and San Diego. I love being Mom, Aunt Kathy, Nona Kathy, and Teacher. I spend a lot of time in my gardens in the spring and summer, and in the winter I plan what I'm going to plant. I also am an avid reader and photographer.
