Coffee with a Friend

Coffee with a Friend
I have a friend with children slightly older than mine. When we were homeschooling, we got together once a week for coffee.  At first, we pretended it was for the kids - they had to have some socialization, you know!  Later on we realized that we both needed each other's support.  I thought I got the better end of the deal, though.  Since her kids are older, she was usually just finishing a stage in her...
