No, I Wasn't Abducted By Aliens

I last posted TWO months ago.  Where the hell did that time go? 

Well, let's see - I got a job.  After six months I came out of "retirement" to do a temp job at a law firm.  An original timeline of 4-6 weeks has turned into almost two months.  

Maddy made her school softball team.  The season ended last week, and now basketball tryouts are next week.  It never ends, I am beginning to realize.  She's loving school, loving sports, and doing really well adjusting to junior high. 

We still aren't completely finished with the legal rigamarole, but hopefully that will wrap up in the next week or two and some projects that have been on the back burner can come to a full boil.  I'm excited about getting Kelli's scholarship rolling and meeting the recipient of Jessica's scholarship.

I've got some speaking engagements lined up beginning next week, and I'm honored to have been asked to speak at Jessica's alma mater of SIUE. 

We're creeping up on four years since they were killed.  I read a quote today - "Everything will change when your desire to move on exceeds your desire to hold on." (Allen Cohen)

I just wonder if it's possible to do both.
