May update

May 9, 2017 9am Going to court today to fight for residential custody of children already in my custody. The school district is making me do it. I really don't care about the tax implications, or the possibility of child support. I just want My Child to go to a school district where there are…

Dame’s Rocket

That's the name of the most beautiful sweet scented flower that bloomed free in the back yard of my old house. Not short it grows vertical almost overnight well I probably didn't notice while I was chasing babies in that century home. My habit is to pull weeds that could be goldenrod I have friends…

My art has been in my head more than in my hands these days Grabbing a handful of kentucky bluegrass winding through the stick trellis I notice a vine that meanders into the green with red veins The urge to pull falters as I cultivate another found plant for my ever expanding cottage garden Of…

Leaning

She leans on me sweet smelling snuffling in my ear she nuzzles my cheek and says, "Cuute." These spontaneous moments of words show me that all is right with the world in my house. Sure, my boys are teenagers They have "toddler brain" in the worst possible way. I, me, mine, now is the mantra…

Well, now I wait

Disclaimer: Sometimes my idea of describing medical issues includes graphic detailed information about the not so quiet hormonal adventure of being female. So, one biopsy down I will wait for the results There is not a thing I can do to speed up the process of waiting for the lab results to be mailed to…
