Revised Trip

We're still going on the ROAD TRIP TO PERDITION. However, we've had to cut some of the trip short and will not be making any stops in California. In fact, we won't be going to CA at all.

Idaho, Utah, Nevada, back through Utah, Idaho and home.

Did I mention that yesteerday it was hot enough in Las Vegas to dry up the canals in the Venetian Casino? Ayup. I think there was only steam left. My father in law sent me an email with a tantalizing picture of the pool that awaits us. Here's a picture of it from last year when our son was having such fun there.

I'm looking foreward to this time on the road and with friends. I'll have my laptop with me and my digital camera, so I'll be uploading all the pictures and posting updates here on my blog so hubby and family can see our voyage.


  1. Hurry home, we'll miss you.

    Don't suppose you want to do lunch in Utah?

  2. Where are you in Utah? I'd love to!!

  3. well i'll look for another time to give you a hug

  4. Have a safe trip! I hope it goes smoothly. We'll have to compare notes when we both return. Yikes, are we there yet?!

  5. Jenny, are you gone already?

    Anna, I'm so sorry. I was looking forward to giving you a huge hug under the California son. It might still happen, you never know. I told hubby that if the ac isn't hooked up in the house by the time I'm ready to head home, I'll head in the other direction!

  6. SUN SUN SUN not SON. ::slaps hand over forehead::

  7. Not yet, Friday. When are you headed out? Your trip sounds way more layed back and fun. I am already stressed over time allotments with family. That part makes driving for two and a half days with a 6, 3 and 1 year old the easy part. Oh, good times. We are making lovely memories for our kids. Ha! : )'

  8. Can't wait to see the fun pictures of your trip (and hear all the great adventures that only traveling with kids can bring)!

  9. We're leaving tomorrow morning berry berry early. And I don't wanna go. It's HOT!!!

    Jenny, when I looked out my window I could see your AC thing between our houses working and running and cooling your house down. Mine still isn't working so I've moved into the otherJenny's house across the street until we leave. I don't wanna gooooooooo

  10. Have a good one, Pam. Just keeping telling son about the pool...

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…
