I announced in Phoenix in 2017 that I was going to take a break. That was mostly because of some activism I was going to participate in that could affect the conferences, and it did end up affecting one of them even though I was not speaking.
More than that, though, my husband retired, and was planning a shoulder surgery, and I had two pregnant daughters-in-law, and I was tired of being away from home. (Here you can see some of 2018 in review, including grandchildren I didn't have the year before.)
I'm still active on facebook, I still add recordings to my site, there is a YouTube collection (of other people's interviews of me, mostly), and I'm keeping Just Add Light and Stir going. This month will see the 3000th post.
To keep up with newness and additions, please subscribe to Site News. That has a randomizer, too, so if you're in the mood to find a page you haven't seen before on my site, or to see some of my favorite photos from Just Add Light and Stir, then aboutunschooling.blogspot.com could be a good place to visit.
Thank you for your interest and kindness over the years. I also add to this collection nearly every week, as people send reviews of their own progress. http://sandradodd.com/feedback/
