Work has lost its luster but it's still challenging and pays the bills—plus extras.
My mom moved out here in December. She bought a charming house just 10 minutes drive from my apartment. We have been having a blast checking out restaurants and cities nearby. So happy to have her here.
David is happy and healthy—graduated college in January. He is making great money and is in a loving relationship with a gal who is smart, friendly, caring and very pretty.

Going to a fabulous tasting menu dinner in Phoenix in early June for my mom's birthday. Should be a great experience.
Update. Got our itinerary today. Leave 10/19 for Honolulu. Return 10/24. Staying on Waikiki Beach. So excited.
