I’m trying 3/18/2017

I'm trying to find more positives than negatives yet, the planets are askew and the wind's blowing my dress up in the air (try holding a toddler while that happens) He can't remember our conversations my words mean nothing requests result in nothing texts cause no reaction I am the poltergeist in my relationship. I…

Transitions

Getting ahead seems like an impossibility when tripped up by pain, most foul, smile I laugh in the face of discomfort There is no position to ease the fire in my back. On futon, on mattress, on couch, on floor, on mat, on carpet, no more no more. I've a sleeping cat on my thighs…

Snow pants

in the frozen northern Ohio December I remember blizzards of winters past Digging tunnels through my back yard with my brothers shoveling driveways with my boys only to need to shovel again at our studio Frozen gloves, crunchy scarves, frosted glasses shovels, snowblowers, lawn tractor plows snow squalls, flurries and ice barriers made by state…

So I spent November

So I spent November aiding sick people, I know them well - my children Of course it started with preparations for the holiday then a visit from my Eldest Surly Reverie who was feverish and phlegmy (Yeah, that is a word) I forgot to mention My Bear's father (I guess I should call him Senior…

My wish has been granted…

I'm trapped in the Cinderella generation I've got Snow White syndrome with a side of Barbie envy. I'm waiting for my fairy godmother to arrive when I am down upwind of a cougar waiting for my knight in shining armor downwind of a bear waiting for Prince Charming No help in sight. I'll have to…

Responding to sentences is still rough. She answers, with "I Girlie" to most questions. Sometimes an "I three," slips out with…

Morning teen 6:30-8:30am

"Stop touching me! Don't touch my hair! I'm not getting up, you took my blanket! Stop spraying me! I still have time! If you leave the room, I'll get up. I'm not getting up until you turn the light off. You can't make me take it. Come on Mommy! We have to leave. I'm going…

Potty Time

  (*In response to Ms. Toy Whisperer's post, "Unleashed") With the boys daycare did the dirty deed like toy soldiers they followed the potty line I'm at a loss she's potty trained at school NOT at home We must be bonding over pee and poop At home She is the baby. She calls herself, "Baby"…

Water

"Watah!" says Girlie from the back seat. "I get wet." Everyday, every fountain, sprinkler, lake, pond, stream or puddle we pass she declares with the sweetness of a three year old. Not a request, just a statement of fact.

Garden

So, instead of dipping the flower stems in wax and setting it alight, I thought it would be a good idea to dry the flowers and shake it liberally over the whole shallow garden.  The Silent Sentinel calls it the genitalia plant.I actually did plant lettuce, kale and arugula, it's just very small and overshadowed…
