I Should Be Cleaning

But I'm not. I'm only human. Well, partly human. Sometimes.


  1. How about "The DaVinci Codpiece"?

  2. I'm wearing one right now~!

    I meant to say, are you wearing one right now?


    Actually, I prefer more modern arrangements than somnthing that looks like an old VW trunk lid

  4. Could you please give me more detail than just saying 'modern arrangements'? My mind thanks you. :grin:

  5. Could you please give me more detail than just saying 'modern arrangements'? My mind thanks you. :grin:

  6. I think the clinical term is 'skivvies.'

  7. Since I've been pressured into answering questions about my underwear, my turn - how'd the blessing go and is there any green bean casserole left?

  8. The blessing is tomorrow, so I'm not sure how it went yet.

    To my knowledge, no one is bringing any bean casserole. However, I bought two different sandwich platters at Costco today, I made a pasta salad, my dad's favorite garlic dip(which I was roundly chastised for not having here for him last sunday) and I am about to make some cupcakes. Other people are bringing veggie platters, fruit platters, assorted salads, chips, dips, etc.

    I also bought chocolates and candies to put into dishes around the house. Wasn't that nice of me? I'll also be making a punch.

    I've had hubby hanging pictures, wall sconces, shelves, flower baskets out in front and lots of other things. I've been cleaning and cleaning and then just for laughs I cleaned some more.

    I'm so tired and I still have one room left. Our bedroom. You might not think that room would require much in the way of cleaning for a party. You'd be wrong. You don't know the people coming to this shindig. They will invade every inch of my home.

    I'm tired. Can you telll?

  9. I hear cod's becoming an endangered species, but not this one...

  10. Thank goodness for that!

  11. So, is your grand niece officially blessed?

  12. Yes, she's been blessed. The partiers partied and consumed food and drink, leaving a pile of empty plates and debris in their wake.

    All have departed.

  13. There use to be enough cod off the grand banks of Newfoundland to bring ships to a halt..there is no mystery as to why they are all gone....Oh My Cod did I just say something serious?

    Is that why Tom Hanks grew a MULLET for the film?

  14. And how could I forget the obvious?

    Cleanliness is next to codliness.

  15. You're right. You're slipping. I've been awaiting that comment since I put up my post.

    Try to keep up dear.

  16. So many ways to reply to that one . . . . . so many ways to die . . . .

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.

Before my husband and I went to the cabin th…

Elderly Abuse

I heard a loud thud the other morning around 3:30 a.m. I checked my monitor but he'd once again turned it to the wall so I was unable to see if he was still in bed. I went downstairs right behind my sweet husband and dad was on the living room floor moaning and holding his head. He'd fallen. Hard.

The first picture is the day of the fall. The second is the day after. The black eye keeps blossoming. He has a gash on his head, hidden by his silver hair and he skinned his shoulder/arm. He's a mess.

Was he using his walker? Nope. 85 year old toddlers cannot be told what to do. Or rather, they can be told what to do, they simply won't comply. Ever. In fact they get down right angry and throw fits. It's not pretty.

His physical therapist came to the house the next day and strongly told him to use his walker EACH TIME HE STOOD UP. Has he? Nope. Nyet. He was very angry with me yesterday because I kept asking him to use his walker. Also, I asked him i…
