Wedding Day!!

I had my makeup professionally done, can you tell? My sis in law is a Mary Kay woman, sans the pink caddy as of yet. Hubby took this pic of me on our way to the reception. The wedding and reception were wonderful! Especially as I was on some great muscle relaxants. I never would have made it there without them. Here's a picture of my two youngest dressed in some pink finery for the nuptuals.

I have tons more pictures, but I'm very tired so I will do it tomorrow. Oh, we're having a family brunch HERE tomorrow as well. Wheeeeeeeee! Sleep? Who needs sleep?


  1. love the make up job. great photo of you. wow, the wedding looked like a blast! here's to you and your back getting better.

  2. it is not as if you don't have enough to do but i think the picture of you the day of the wedding, the one you have posted in this blog entry shows more of the wit and allover charm i have discovered about you through your blog. there's also more of playfulness in it. would i be a jerk by suggesting you put in in your profile?

  3. The other picture was a professional headshot I had to have for my newspaper columns. Kinda stuffy, eh? You're right, I should use the fun one for my blog. Thanks for the idea!

A Poem to an Abusive Man

I've been doing a bit of research on abuse, domestic violence and how it usually ends. It's not pretty and it's painful and I hurt every time I read another woman's tale of horror.

Did you know that emotional abuse is as detrimental as physical abuse? And that most emotional abusers continue on to become physical abusers? I didn't. I do now. I found a site where formerly abused women, on the path to recovery from their abusers, have written poems. This one below is one that haunted me.

Thank You

You wooed me with poetry
I bit on the hook
Had I only first read
The name of the book

I would have avoided
The very first page
For pages kept turning
Revealing the rage

The ups were a great high
The ride was a bash
But I rode with my eyes closed
To avoid seeing the crash
I knew it would come soon
But I never knew when
The rage and the leaving
And the path to the end

You had to control things
Determined you would
Emotionally destroying me
Every way that you could

I'll Love You Forever, I'll Like You For Always...

I rely on the kindness of strangers...

Or not so much strangers as readers of my miserable blog.

I received a beautiful card in the mail from my long-tine reader (perhaps my ONLY reader) that lifted my heart. Thank you, G. Parkes. It was kind of you to think of me. Seriously---you are so sweet. Thank you.

Perhaps we can meet in person one day. I'll be in Utah after Conference. We'll see how it goes.

I've been caring for my autistic grandson since July. It seems longer sometimes---and that's not a complaint. I adore this little man. He holds my heart. He fills my arms and my heart in the way that my own small babies used to do. When mine reached the age where they didn't want to be in my arms any longer, I felt their absence. Their absence from my arms was heavier than actually having them in my arms. It was an ache that is difficult to describe, a phantom pain where something once was but now is no longer.

I'm Sick. And the election isn't helping.

I spoke too soon about feeling better. My grandson was delightful enough to share his virus with me, so I've spent the past five days losing everything from both ends. It hasn't been pretty.

As a weight loss program though...

At least one end of me has stopped spewing. Now I wait for the other end to stop pretending to be filled with hot lava and erupting without much notice. Sorry, this is what is called over-sharing. Apparently I'm very good at it. You're welcome.

Last night I walked around the block with hubby and our adorable puppy. It was the first time I've been out of the house in five days. It was lovely, even though I was very shaky. Today I actually tried to accomplish something. I sat at my jewelry table, moved my seaglass around. Picked up pieces and played them through my hands. Such beautfy that came from something considered useless garbage and tossed away. I love my sea glass. It gives me the happies.

I also had a severe case of J…
