Big grins, excitement, new clothes, new backpack filled with supplies--life is grand when you begin First Grade. Taller, smarter, ready for anything, keeping an eye out for her little boyfriend from kindergarten that she hasn't seen since school let out in the spring. What excitement when they see...

Seven Days In August

Where have I been? I wish I could tell you, but it would be too much effort to try to remember in detail. Mostly I've just been right here at home, very near the computer, but trying very hard to ignore it. Once in a while it called to me, but my answer would be, "Be still and let me be! I don't...

Tragedienne In The Drama Of Life

When life throws you a curve that was totally unexpected and it knocks you off of your feet for a time, it is difficult to get back up and keep going.

Yes, I Still Do It

I thought about giving it all up and just living on the edge of what others decide. But I can't. It's still on my mind, in my blood so, I still go vote....even though I sometime wonder if I'm helping.... or making things worse. Tomorrow is the day. My mom and dad set the example for me.

When Do You Call The Police?

When you are making sure you are on the same page with someone, also be sure that you are in the same book, and that the other person knows how to read.

Antisocial?

Celebrating Birthdays wears me out. That is not just because I am old and tired anyway. They have never been a favorite pastime of mine, though they have been an important part of family life.... and I have a lot of family. The end of July and the beginning of August is the time of year for a lot of... Sign in to see full entry.

Suicide Sometimes Runs In Families

Warning: You may not want to read this. Today is Preacher's birthday (my Son #2). He lives in Florida so I will not be celebrating with him in person, but my heart, my love, my thoughts, my best wishes and my memories are with him. This last year has been very hard on him.

The Little White Lie To Keep From Hurting Someone's Feelings

Some people have the worst taste in clothing. I could care less if they are wearing the clothes themselves. But when someone buys me something for my birthday, thinking what a beauty it is, and that it will look wonderful on me, and are so proud of their choice, and I just hate it, and they can't...
