Bright Eyes

December 30, 2010


There have been times when I found myself thinking, “I’ll give mom a call”.  Like yesterday.  I was excited about going to a job interview, and so I tried giving my dad a call. It just wasn’t the same.  I would have hung up the phone from my mom feeling like I had the job.  […]

Slowly Re-entering the Real World

December 29, 2010


I feel kind of  lost today.  In addition to having a fuzzy head from a cold, I’ve got so much to do, and I can’t seem to focus and get anything done.  I’m  picking  away at things, so eventually something will be completed I’m sure. I also feel I am ready to slowly re-enter the […]

Solstice/Eclipse Double Bill!

December 21, 2010

A Life In Images

December 12, 2010


I got together with my sister and brother yesterday to pick out which pictures of my mom we would be using for her memorial.  I thought it would be a dread chore, but it turned out to be kind of fun.  We also came across some pictures that we had never seen before, and pictures […]

I Would Do It All Again

December 9, 2010


My mom had made it through the night at ICU, and the dreaded phone call never came.  We went to visit my mom the next morning with a renewed sense of hope, because no matter what the prognosis, you always have that hope.  Well, at least I did. We were kept waiting for some time, […]
