Since we departed from Sarasota in February Sarah has maintained a pace that makes me want a nap!
If you recall, Farah and her children moved into Sarah’s 2 bedroom apartment in February due to Farah’s job change. Sarah and Jen took on the caretaker role for Farah’s children while she worked, keeping both Jen and Sarah busy.
