September 2007: Inbrief

 Quote of the Month:

“Holding resentment is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”

Sally, married 50 years, read in an MSN article on longlasting marriages.  

(I love reading those MSN articles.  They’re like popcorn: small and tasty, but healthy enough that I don’t feel guilty reading a ton of them.)

 

Hightlights:

Fall’s the best. The kids are happy in school, the new Fall TV season has started, I’m healthy, and I actually have time and energy to write. Summer and Fall totally win the Rowena Eureka “Best Season” awards.
