In the last five years
I lost both of my parents
Death of my father
Still difficult to withstand
Death of my mother
Feels like my structure is gone
I'm like an orphan
Standing completely alone
Don't feel old enough
Trudging forward on my own
A new grandmother
At the age of thirty nine
He's such a cutie
I feel like he is my son
My son is eighteen
And leaving home for college
So hard to let go
I want to freeze time
And relive it all again
I'm thankful for life
And the memories I hold
Gathering courage
Trying to face the next step
Writing in my blog
Channeling in a Haiku
Is like therapy

My baby, Dylan, (15 year old baby) was recently invited to apply to become a member of the National Honor Society and found out today that he was accepted. :) Being invited is an honor, but it is still not a guarantee that you will be accepted as a member. The application is very lengthy and filled with many standards for acceptance. His older brother, Jason, was accepted at this age and Dylan wanted to follow in his brother's footsteps. He is very excited. :)

Two- cheesy, yet perfectly good names for a band or song title are:

Wasted Potential (gotta notice the play on words here) and

Scattered Focus

Today I went to get a pedicure and my eyebrows waxed; something I very rarely do. I usually do them myself, but they were in need of being manicured and I thought they would benefit from a professional doing them. You know, someone who does them everyday as part of their PROFESSION? So I was telling the lady I like them to be left as thick as possible, NOT thin. She said "Yes, I just clean them up". Soooo? Not only are they too thin, one of them is HIGHER than the other one!!!!
Rickey and Dylan assure me it isn't noticeable, especially since I wear bangs.
It looks like I'm slightly raising my frickin' eyebrow!
Try not too giggle too hard...

OH - But my toes look cute, though. :)

First attempt ever at growing anything. Actually, it's Rickey's baby, but I'll happily get to indulge in the fruit of his labor. Tomato is a fruit, right? ;)
