So, I finally have a few pieces of good news to share. No. 1 my husband has accepted a job offer -- a good one -- for a position that will utilize his skills and not require him to wear our son's clown costume -- a fate that was looking like more and more of a reality as the months passed.

How did he get this gig, you ask? Remember when I said he was connecting with just about everyone he'd ever been in the same room with?

It didn't come a moment too soon as my face has become so furrowed and jowly from worrying, I'm beginning to resemble a damn shar-pei (OK, wow, I just had to look up that spelling -- not what I was expecting!)
