I am one of nine children. Luckily, most of us live close enough to spend a lot of time together. Our children are also growing up together, which I think is so nice for them. Being part of a big family has its good points and not so good points. I'm sure anyone with a large family understands. Growing up with a single mom made things tough on her but we always managed to get by. My mother is one of the most beautiful people I know. She has always been there, no matter what. I don't know what I would do without her.

As far as siblings go, I have been blessed, for the most part. I have an older sister, Danielle who I would chose as a friend, even if she wasn't my sister. Like most families, mine has its share of drama and conflict. I have gotten to a place in my life, where I have decided that I am going to minimize my contact to preserve my sanity. Some think it is harsh but I think its been a long time coming. Sometimes we have to care about ourselves as much as we care about others.
I am finally going back to school. I was just accepted to Boston University's Graduate Program for the fall. I will be going back to get my MSW. I have been wanting to do this for quite some time. Now that my children are all grown, I have no excuse to continue putting it off. I am looking forward to it. I enjoy putting on my thinking cap...
