How long since I updated here? Ugh, too long, not good.
Quick bites and bits of me:
I am reminded of why the toddler years drive me crazy.
I am reminded of why I will miss the cuteness and sweetness of the toddler years.
The first-grader is blooming--intellectually, socially, gracefully and verbally. Was it just three years ago she was in speech therapy? Today she correctly used a really big, grown-up word. Gah! I forgot what it was. [smacks forehead]
My fourth-grader presented me today with a decoupage artwork she made in art class from a b/w photo of the two of us that I supplied. We are both wearing bejeweled crowns and she gave me angel's wings, with a poem on the back and a quote from Cicero. Cicero! I spent a whole semester of Latin on Cicero's orations. Oh! she has my heart! I cried.
My husband is better. And every day better. And that makes me better.
I am writing again. For payment. On my own schedule, on my own terms, stuff I like to write. It is good.
It is Fall.
I want nothing more than to live in this moment. Stay here. Savor it. Crunch it. And not let it go.
