I can want

Sure, I can want my children to be brilliant and given accolades for their accomplishments. My reality is that I'm struggling to keep them all out of trouble. My Eldest Surly Reverie is floating just above the waves while treading water. Thank God he can swim. Thanking the third grade program that taught all the…

Happy Aging!

Saturday, I turned 47. A day earlier, ESR turned 20. Monday my mom turns 72. That's a whole bunch of Leos. My herd came over to visit. I guess it was a party. Everybody talking at once. Girlie bouncing off the couch My brothers called to wish me "happy aging." I'm having that sinking problem…

A day

Waking up early I wondered what my birthday would bring?

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.

I take the good with the bad

I took a break from writing and the world fell in. Not really. All of us had some flu, then a virus, one case of upper respiratory infection and now I have head cold, 'cause life just wouldn't be fair without a winter cold. Girlie is happy and speaking more I walked into her room…
