" Sometimes You're The Windshield...."

Mary Chapin Carpenter most certainly had it right when she wrote that song.

Don't faint on me here.

While I am not per say a fan of country music, I do like some, and her work is part of that.

It's been like that at the Casa...One step forward and two steps back. No, I am not saying that we are unique, special or any of that fatuous drivel. I am simply saying that this is the state of things right now and while they are not new, I am Frakking Tired Of This .

It's not the big things, he and I can and do step up to the plate and deal with it. We are adults.

It's the small shit.

$720.00 for a new compressor for Pearl the Wonder Car.


Seven Hundred and Twenty Dead Presidents.

And it will be more if the garage door opener is not in the box of mis-placed openers at Enterprise....yeah.

We live in Houston.



Of course all this happens when he is due to go out of town for a three day weekend to Austin with the Moron to play golf. Then , the second week of July I am going to the west coast to attend the other Godson's wedding. The weekend of the wedding, the Moron is also painting our kitchen and new flooring is going in , so of course we have to pack out the whole damn thing and he's gonna be gone this weekend....As I tote boxes home. And to top all of this off, the day of the wedding , his office is moving into the new building so his boss is completely and utterly batshit over it.

ADHD much ?

If I was going to be home the weekend of July 12'th , I"d run away....far , far, far, far, away.

The cost of the car repairs mean that the new hardware for the kitchen will have to wait, and we have a lot of it...don't ask...I did the numbers.

On the up side..the summer law clerks are gone.

Down side, two women that are attorneys at our firm are going on personal sabbaticals..and I will miss them very much. I have made a point of telling them this...and how much I sincerely wish them the best of all things possible.

Please Lord...RAIN naow ????

Please...we are ten inches down..and this is getting very , very old. Other parts of the city..yeah...afternoon sprinkles at least.

Casa = Zero.

Sigh .

Have a great weekend...I will be packing cookbooks and can goods.


Aunty Pol

P.S....It's official. Hisself has lost his mind. He is surfing between " Deadliest Catch on TLC , ( I think ) and " I Survived A Japanese Game Show " on ABC .

Thirty Three

Thiry Three

Some years are less worse than others.

Some years are gaping , gunshot wounds to the heart .

Today is more the latter than the former , and I cannot give a reason, it simply is.

Maybe it's the fact that ALL of my girlfriends are grandmothers now.


Sometimes I wonder the way life would have been different. I don't know what kind of parent I would have made , there are no rule books. I know for a fact that there are some things that would have been different, some things that would not have stood the light of day. I klnow that this is the one thing that I wanted more than anything else in the world, and that I will bear the guilt intil my last breathe . In my mind I know the fall was an accident..but my heart will never be able to accept that .

I also know that I owe it to them to carry on .

Happy Birthday my babies, your Mother misses you each and every day.
