At some point, somone mentioned wanting to know about home-schooling and such. The friend that I contacted has now gotten back to me but it's been a while, so I don't know how made the original request. If you're interested, contact me by e-mail and I'll hook you up with someone doing home-schooling right now.
Finally, I had to put in a reference to the following quote on love. It moved me rather deeply. It took me from being a little morose to feeling much better.
Love makes you a better and bigger person. It is not really love if either of you become less.I think I need to think about this one a bit. Thank you, otterdancing.
