So, here in the Feger house we have been finding peace. Why haven’t I updated the blog? It hasn’t been on my mind. Instead, I’ve been planning Transplantiversary celebrations, getting the kids back to school, preparing for the holidays, working around Jamey’s travel schedule — you know, NORMAL THINGS.
