I live just outside of Los Angeles, and I actually love it—minus the stand-still, mind numbing traffic. There’s absolutely nothing good that can be said about that. I am someone who needs action to be happy, a life that is constantly on the go, and living near LA gives that to me, in spades.
Yes, I have been M.I.A. If you were to look for me, it would have been rather easy to spot me. I have been the one holed up in my home office either typing twenty-six essays for my daughter’s humongous History project or as I fondly refer to it…the “F’in History project”, OR I was shouting random AP US History questions at my son from a box of cards which I affectionately like to refer to as the “F’in box of cards”. FYI, I don’t actually use the bad, bad word…I’m not sure my acronym is any better but it seems better to me.
