Deep Dive/Deluge: Back to the emotionally charged issue of...thank-you notes! We talked about this issue in episode 63. (What name do you like better?) If you want to see my stationery watch this Facebook Live video, around minute 3:45, where I show it off.

Listener Questioner: Anna asks how to deal with a mother-in-law who wants to spend too much time with her and her husband.

Elizabeth’s Demerit: Elizabeth did the dreaded "partial move." We've all done it!

 Gretchen’s Gold Star: I give myself a gold star for making a count-down calendar for Eliza, as she sprints toward the finish line of her junior year -- and Eleanor liked it so much, we made one for her, too.
