Oh the moments of joy

Okay, so my first grader comes home all happy as usual.  I go through his folder and find a very neatly written list of rules.  As I read them, he proceeds to tell me how everyone in his class had to come up with rules for behavior.  Apparently, the class had been unruly for awhile.  So, they all had to write down the rules that the students came up with.  There were the usual; "raise your hand", "wait your turn",  "no kicking", "no name calling", etc.  Then I come to one that made me take pause.  I asked my son, though I really didn't have to, "which one did you come up with".  Apparently, just as I thought, his was number fourteen.  His rule, which is now on everyone's rule list being read by everyone's parents, states...wait for it..."Do not say ASS to the teacher".  Hmmmmm.  I'm so proud, hahahaha.  Now, he is "that" kid and we are "those" parents.  Ahhh the joy.

Redemption Revisited

It has been a very long time since I have posted on my little mini-drama.  In that time, I have found a way to become close to and alienated from my little crush.  My crush that took no time to grow into a friendship.  It has become something I cherish, we both do.  All caught up and still drawn together, we have laughed and cried and laughed until we cried.  I would like to think that my little blue-eyed angel will be a part of our lives forever.  Unfortunately, life is never truly that easy.  There is a lot between us.  Friends for life, for now it seems that way anyway.  It has been a roller coaster at times trying to drudge through what could have been to get to a place that is settled firmly in the here and now.  If I never go on fb again, I will always be thankful that it did what we could never seem to do in real life, bring us together.  It's a means to an end I suppose.  A way that the story has come full circle...almost.

I do exist

It has been a long time since I've posted here.  I apologize for my absence.  Life has a way of swishing you around like a washing machine.  Up, down, and sideways.  I'll try to update, in a series of short posts, the jist of  what's been going on.  Quick update, I've been ill.  In and out of doctor's, hospitals, and nightmares.  All is well.  I am fine and healing and hopefully on my way to a much better existence in my own body. Family is well for the most part.  Kiddies have been troopers and Hubby, well, he's hubby.  Gotta love him, he does try.
