update and a dream

spent a nice mother's day
with all the mothers
in my life

busy weekend

got a toolbox
with my tools
so now there will be
no searching
the great abyss

also got a great cd
and one of my angels

singing card that my singer

beautiful cards from the other
two mothers

ran into a great friend of mine
from eighth grade
had my back to her and
heard her voice
wouldn't have recognized her
her voice hasn't changed a bit
but it seemed everything else had

she was in a hurry
and kind of blew me off
life goes on

three ring circus today
after days and days
of non stop rain
makes me tired

the sun made
a guest appearance today
bright light, bright light
gives me hope
the fog pushes down
i insist on pushing back

the secret is pushing back
but sometimes there is
no energy left
to whisper

looking forward to
being outdoors
although i will admit
i am jealous that
i won't need to speak
a foreign language
camp with chatty girls
and dirty boys
hmm...what was i thinking?

can't wait for the view
of blue water
from the islands up north
it took me months and months
to get over the feeling
that i was home
when i was there
sometimes on really bad days
i still long to be there
in a little cottage on the shore
blues and whites inside
with a huge window
to see that blue water
my own private oasis
with a white table desk
that plays host to
lots of paper
expensive pens
and a computer

reasons to celebrate

so much time goes by
the same old stuff
yet all new somehow
but these are events
i cannot let pass by
without comment

the lion is three
and the tiger five
both birthdays
one day apart

it's as if the birthday
suddenly allowed
fully understandable
sentences to flow out
one after another
now if only the birthday
could bring about
big boy underwear
that aren't wet or worse
my next step is
diapers on strike!

And then my big little bro
surprised us all
but mostly her
with the big question
by the way
squeaks and giggles
mean yes...
the ring is so pretty
but her glow is even prettier : )

and i guess i'll admit
as a people fan
that i was happy to hear
rosie is coming back
to daytime television
on the view
her thoughts and lifestyle
may be controversial but
they inspire me to contemplate
and i love the insight
she gives to the "rich and famous"

so this week i prepare
for a cooking show
lots of people coming
funny that i am cooking for them
who would have guessed?

still no nibbles on the other house
once the police pulled us over
and the lion being young
was intrigued by the car
"po-wece mommy"
yes, police
after a minute or two
"we wait?"
yes, we wait
so, no sold sign yet
still, we wait
