Happy Halloween!



I did it.  I have signed up and committed to posting once a day for the month of November.  Should be interesting!  NaBloPoMo

Come join in!


Thanks to Jen for this video find.  Very moving.

Pumpkin Patch

I am so irritated at son and his grades and was going to post said irritation here.  Instead, I give you pictures from a trip to the pumpkin patch a couple of weeks ago.

Here I am just being goofy.

Son and I.  He actually smiled and didn’t close his eyes!

Pushing around my neighbor’s purchase.  

Overall we had a great time.  The weather was beyond perfect.  On the way home, we stopped at an apple orchard and I got some apples.  I thought they were a great price, all you could fit in the bag for 6 bucks.  I called that a bargain.  The apples made for a great apple cake, an awesome apple pie and another apple cake.  (Seriously, the apple cake is tooo good.  I’ll link the recipe tomorrow. )
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!!

Grocery List – as composed by my 13 year old son

Milk                                                                                                                                                         Cereal                                                                                                                                               Onion                                                                                                                                                 Pork Butt  (ass)chips                                                                                                                                                

This was dictated by me while I washed dishes.  He stood next to me and made the list.  When he was done and walked away, he said “Be sure you read the list!”.


I thought that this time I wouldn’t miss you.  I thought that I would be able to make it through the day without talking to you.  I mean, I can make it through the day without talking to you, but it is on my mind all. day. long.

I am mad and upset about what happened.  I am mad that you won’t ever read this post.  At least, I don’t think you check this blog out.  I never gave you the address.  But I digress.

You have always said that we are meant to get together.  I have always said that the universe is conspiring against us.  It’s not the universe, it is your actions that doom us.  Remember what I said to you during our big fight last month.  I told you I don’t want to be with anyone else but you.  I want you as my partner in this crazy game of life.  I still do, but you keep sabotaging us.

I miss you.  I love you.

What the dog dragged in

She was clean when she went outside!

I am done

I was in love. He has wronged me over and over again and I kept coming back. I followed my heart. No more. I am done.
