It is finally here. Today, for the first time, I am putting both of my children on a bus and sending them off to school for the better part of the day, leaving me to do…. well, something, I’d imagine. When I stop and think about it, it’s a little strange to think that after seven years of never being by myself for more than three hours (at the …
