My First True Love: A Letter to my Teenage Son

Dedicated to my oldest son, Brandon



We met face-to-face for the first time what seems like yesterday, but years have passed, and I have known you for a lifetime. You have led me on a remarkable journey through this forest of existence, and have taught me to cherish every detail. You have guided my feet toward a less traveled pathway, and on it, you have opened my eyes to a world full of treasures all others have taken for granted, cast aside or completely ignored.

Silence







He lies motionless in an unfamiliar place

He tries to view his world

Only to be met with nothingness

Faded mutterings of peculiar articulations

Surround his being

Taunting his curiosity





Focus . . .

His recognition fails, once more

He knows someone is there

Somewhere in the darkness

Who?

The Nerve! Fighting back against rude people everywhere!

The rudeness of people never ceases to amaze me. There you are . . . just going about your day-to-day life, when someone does something or says something just downright rude. The nerve! When this happens to me, I'm usually so stunned by their audacity that I cannot think of a reply until moments, even days later when I realize, after careful consideration of how this person affected my life, invaded my personal space, and (sometimes) even triggered a tear or two.



I was brought up to… Continue

The ABCs of Me

A - Age: 37 going on dead





B - Bed size: not big enough, but apparently suited for a queen. I'm assuming that queen didn't have a cover-hogging, freight train-sounding husband, dogs who only sleep on Mom's side of the bed, or two small kids running into her room in the middle of the night because











is out to get them!







C - Chore you hate: How about I just list all the ones I don't hate? That would be a whole lot… Continue

Motherhood in Overdrive Part Deux

Continuation from yesterday's posting (see post immediately below this one): And Now . . . The Rest of the Story (RIP, Mr. Harvey)



I left the computer for (what was intended to be) a brief moment of comforting one of the twins while he was paying homage to the Great White Porcelin God. However, in the midst of rubbing his back and wiping his face as he hurled projectile masses of unknown constituents into the depths of clear blue waters, the phone rang. I let it go to voicemail,… Continue

Motherhood in Overdrive

Have you ever tried getting work done when you feel like death? Do you fall behind on daily tasks when you're so sick that you just want to lie still, close your eyes, shut out the world and finally give your body the rest it needs to recouperate, but can't? If you're a mother, you know all too well what I'm talking about. Why is it that we, mothers, must carry on despite the fact that we feel like warmed over road kill?



What inspired this post? Yep, you guess it! I'm freakin' sick… Continue
