The experiment is ongoing, tho different. I am now separated. When I lost my job, and didn’t find another months later, I realized it was time to go back to school. I’m pursuing a degree in photography & graphic design. The Minions are now 18, 16, 12 & 8. #1 & I are going to the same college & #2 has been on dialysis since Dec ’10. This is us…navigating this scary, amazing, difficult, wondrous time in our lives.
