Mthrgoos68 is doing just fine and no, she hasn't deserted us for exciting new sites (like "sexyyounggrandmas.com"), she's just going through some major life changes right now that are keeping her extremely busy. She's been well warned not to stay away for too long though, because we need wonderful sources of inspiration like her for sure!
She told me to let everyone know she's thinking of us and cheering us on (mentally if not physically). I'm sure everyone here wishes the best for her too as she embarks on many adventures, including impending grandmotherhood come fall (yet she sounds like a teenager on the phone), pulling a reverse "Dorothy" (leaving Kansas to go back home to California), embarking on a new career (wonder if that job she had at Disneyland as a teenager is still open), and just the overwhelming undertaking of packing up her brood (a bevy of kids, a dog, a hamster and the latest addition to the family, a python!!) and heading across the country to start over. YOU GO GIRL!! Yes, but hurry up and get settled down and back here pronto - we miss you!!
