Taking Care

I haven't blogged in a long while and finally feel ready to get back to it. My life has seen lots of changes in the past year and a half. I sold my house (the house my three kids grew up in) and moved to a smaller house. It's on a pond in the next town over. I'm living with my husband again after a ten year, well let's just say, sabbatical. I retired from teaching and am now devoting more time to writing. I'm revising and fixing and adding density to my middle grade novel, Saving Gracie. I'm spending more time with my 89-year-old Mom, who lives on the Cape. I visit once a month and it always feels like home. After teaching for years (which I loved), it was time to take care of me and do some of the things I'd been longing to do.

Life is good and I'm looking forward to the next chapter.


  1. Laurie -- This is such a lovely look at the next stage in your life. I also love the beautiful setting for your writing desk (overlooking the lake). Here's to a bright future and book contracts! Love, Robin
