gee it's good to be back home again...

what a trip.


to borrow from Mr. Dickens: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

Kindergarten graduation was so bloody cute...pictures shall be posted soon. even the field trip to the Animal Ark was cute...and i only had three kids to be responsible for.

of course, one of them was the class bully. how did i get so lucky?


the day my Husband got up there, the home where my mother-in-law is called..she suddenly took a turn for the worse, and the home felt that the inevitable was just around the corner.

she passed away this past Tuesday.

death is an amazing business here in America. it's not something we want to talk about and no one ever wants to face. but as part of the home's services, they offer hospice care. and the representative who dealt with my sister-in-law was so kind. Maureen said if everyone was like this chick, that dying could actually be something to look forward to.

of course, the whole thing wasn't stress-free. although my mother in law's needs were met, the inter-family squabbles and well...BS due to thoughtlessness was, well...stupid. maybe later on i'll get into it, but suffice it to say that irony & karma do exist.

so, i wanted to thank you for all your postings & emails expressing concern about my mother-in-law. i know my husband appreciates it as well.

happier news tomorrow. i swear.
