Favorite books: Anything by Dorothea Benton Frank, Stephen King, Sandra Kring, Jodi Picoult, Phillipa Gregory, Cassandra King. I think you would enjoy of of these authors. I like to bake: scones, cobblers, and cook a lot in the crockpot. There is a crockpot group you can join on CM if you are into that. Such an easy way to cook and you don't have to spend all day doing it. I don't have small children but try to go on a local drive every week, I am a photographer and love to take pictures. If you don't have a digital camera consider investing in an inexpensive one, Coolpix is a good quality one that runs about a 100 dollars or less on sale. Then you can take pics of the kids and places you go. On nice days, consider the zoo, parks, hiking, playgrounds, anything that gets you out and about. You can PM me if you need more ideas. Happy Holidays and I hope it all works out for you. I think it's a great idea on your part.
