    Default Going to Maine to visit my kids!!!!!!!!

    Anyone who read my interview last December may recall my perfect day - a whole day at the beach with my children.... Well...


    I just found out I'm going to be able to fly up to Maine to see my kids at the beach for a few days!!!!

    I leave the 19th and return the 25th - they'll be working except for the weekend, but I'll happily take whatever time I can get. Abby is 21 now, applying to med schools and working in research and development in a huge pharmaceutical company this summer and Henry is 18 and applying to colleges. (I am *** now and exhausted when I think about when I was their age....)

    Just to get myself in the spirit, I was looking through old beach pictures and found this one of me with the kids in 1997. My, how things have changed!

    Enjoy yourself Maura. Nothing like spending time with the kids, though they may not be kids any more.

    Thanks so much, everyone - I'm planning to have the time of my life (after I recover from the severe flying phobia I have).

    Martha - I totally forgot you would be so close by when I come up. I'll be car-less this time, but Phillip and I will be driving up late September and I hope we can find a way to meet up at some point.
