Ah, yes. Back in 1985, I took a vacation to Florida. I had a friend in Boston who had sent me the key to his Florida condo near the causeway that led to Sanibel Island. He told me to be sure to go to the island, that I would love it. He was right. I loved it so much that I decided to get a timeshare week so that my children ( who were 8 and 6 at the time) would have a place to vacation when they were grown and had children of their own.
I found myself in an interesting position this summer. I had been working for the last two summers on my collaborative writing with my business partner and friend. In an effort to keep my schedule open to fit with his, so that we could get work done, I found that I had missed two years worth of work in my yard and flowers. This was the year it really caught up with me. The yard was a mess and flowers that had been planted three years ago were fighting with the weeds to survive. It was time to take charge.
