Neverland

“It’s not about the food”.But it is.It may not begin that way, but slowly it becomes a way to cope.Control.It’s about the control.No matter how much you try to deny it.Things change whether you want them to, or not.Peter Pan used to visit me I my dreams.Beckoning me to take the second star on the right.“And straight on till morning.”I dreamt of growing up.Until I saw through the fog.Then I knew, but now there was no going back.Neverland became a place inside me.One where I hid away....more

4320 minutes of nothing

Freddie was gone this past weekend. For a boy's weekend/fantasy baseball team/league/whatever it's called trip.  Is it called a fantasy team or fantasy league?

on baby showers and babies

I was at a baby shower this weekend. Let me rephrase that: I was at a baby shower/dinner party/shindig/gathering of the year/feast extraordinaire this weekend. Our good friends are expecting their first baby in March, and I got to spend the evening on Saturday celebrating them and their probably/most definitely best/most awesome baby of 2016 baby....more

It's been 70 degrees here in the past couple of days. Not like a warm 70, but a crisp, cool 70.  Does that make sense? We were walking the dog yesterday and Freddie was making fun of me for wearing a jacket when it was 70 outside. I had to explain that 70 degrees can feel very different.
