I kind of feel like this sums up my summer fairly well:
Report: Mom Just Locked Her Door

Heading West

Tomorrow I join the throngs of female bloggers leaving their kids for the weekend. Only I am heading in the opposite direction from Blogher, as far away as I can get, really, as I am going to LA for a great and old friend’s wedding.
