I did some calling and checking and digging today to see where I could go for help to get my baby girl's seizure meds. And yay! Children's Hospital is going to fill her Rx for FREE!!!!!!

This time the tears I cried were tears of joy and relief.

Another yay? A pretty wonderful person by the name of Kelly baked some incredibly delicious pumpkin muffins for me and gave me a card. This is a sweet woman who has had more than her share of life's twists and turns and she's always thinking of others. Thanks Kelly. When I grow up I want to be just like you. And not just the gorgeous outside that is you, but the kind and compassionate inside that is you as well.

Ok, the gorgeous outside would be kinda nice too. :grin:

In other yay news, I have even more students in my early morning Spanish classes than I'd been anticipating! Yay! I've also got another interview with the school district to become a translator. This is on top of the other two Spanish teaching jobs, plus another that's coming up at another school.

We might just make it after all.


  1. I'm so happy about the meds news.

    I noticed all the sign-ups in the pta box the other day and was very excited for you.

  2. i am so pleased to see your happy news today!
    what a relief about the meds.
    and the extra students.

    (and you are too sweet.)

  3. I never watched that show, but I would expect nothing less after reading your post! I'm happy for you!!!

  4. I'm so glad for you...I haven't been there with the meds, but we've been there with the job worries. Take care...

  5. Thanks Paige! I've got nearly twenty students! Yay! Yay! Yay!

    Thanks Kelly...and thanks again for the muffins. You are the too-sweet one m'dear.

    Rebecca, you're too young to remember the Mary Tyler Moore show I'd guess. Yes, I'm ancient. :)

    Thank sis Parker! I know a lot of people are going through tough times right now. I'm so incredibly relieved I can't tell you. We went down to the hospital today and picked up her meds. It was such a relief.

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…

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…
