Wow, Mark, that is a great photo. Those photos of sun rays through clouds look like heaven to me.

The authentic New England seafood feast sounds great to me Arbor!

Phoebe, when I was a lad my mamaw would sing a song to me about having a home 'way beyond the blue' in reference to heaven. Seeing the sun rays like that takes me back in an instant every time. I quite like it and treasure the memories even more with the passing of time.

Good evening V, quite the busy lady you are. Looks like your week got off to a productive start. I'm just waiting here for daylight to have a run...I like to see where my feet hit the ground!

Wishing everyone the best day.

Arbor and Phoebe did you see me waving on Saturday as we drove by? College drop off is done. Second year is way easier than first. It's very quiet here. Hot week ahead.

All is good here. The week is off to a better start, although another law was created today that further weakens victims' rights, but it's beyond my control, and I accept that. My job is to uphold the law, even when it sucks.

My daughter started preschool today. I can't believe how fast she's growing up. And my niece, whom I met when she was six, is leaving for college in a couple weeks. It's crazy.

V you sound busy. I hope you get some down time.

Best to all.

I'm good Briar...
Living on my own (well sort of, not-so-little V is a pretty demanding room-mate) means that I have plenty of down time. Way too much really since dad died. And my auntie. And my best friend disappearing.
Anyway, being busier now is good for me, and I really like it.

Hmm re these laws...why on earth would they be playing with laws that are there to protect victims?

How lovely that A started pre-school. I need photos...her first art piece maybe.

I just wanted to mention that Leigh isn't feeling well at the moment.
Sending her love and prayers for good health.
And loads of hugs. ♥

Hi V....sorry to see that Leigh isn't feeling well. And V, it's great how you're using all the changes in your life as a catalyst for positive progress. Many would have done the opposite.

Hope you're back soon feeling stronger than ever Leigh!

Time to put on my scrappy but comfy old gym cloths and roll. Wishing all the best day.

Way to get it, Mark!!!


I'm celebrating my official engagement this week! We had the ring sized in June, but he finally proposed on the beach Saturday. It was absolutely beautiful. I got to sit down with jr last night and have a heart to heart,letting him know how much I loved him too. This is all so dream-like to me. And I'm positive that it all started last October with my decision to be brave enough to let go of things that were weighing me down. Family issues and work stuff continue to suck up a lot of my time, but it's ok. I'm happy to help because I can. A year ago, this may have taken me out. But not now. Life is good in my sober hood, friends!
Lotsa love and big hugs all around. I've missed checking in daily and look forward to some quiet time at home tonight so I can catch up.
Plus... It's taco Tuesday for the boys and me! Woot!

I just saw Leigh is not feeling well... Sending healthy, healing vibes your way sweet sister!
