Volume One. 2007. It will be the shortest volume, because I started the blog in October of that year. I’ve already ordered Volume 2, 2008, which will be considerably longer (220 pages!). 2009 will follow shortly thereafter.
Like a deer in the headlights, Sophie was, when we said our goodbyes this morning. Although excited about school in theory, she didn’t seem to understand what she was doing among all the children and teachers.
When I was in college I produced several volumes of journals. The next time I wrote on a regular basis was following the death of my father almost 8 years ago. During that time, I kept a daily diary to record all of my bittersweet memories of him during that first year of mourning, and to record the joys of my first pregnancy. But since then, my writing has been sporadic and brief, occurring mostly during times of discontent or stress.
