• A LIST

    My God. There is so much to worry about. To whine about. To lose sleep about. I do all those things. I wager that nearly 75% or more of us are on some sort of medication for all of this. There is no such thing[..]

    These are the beautiful people. They hold my hand. They sit on my lap. Giggling is compulsory. When the older one, my dearest Charlie, says “I’ll love you forever,” my heart nearly bursts. When the tiny one, darling Birdie, puts her head in my lap,[..]

  • OVER AND OVER

    Posted on by Molly

  • HOT, HOT, HOT

    Posted on by Molly

    Midsummer. Today we are under a heat advisory. Old people are supposed to stay in the house and drink a lot of water. This makes sense. I am an old person. So I am inside, thinking about how to survive until it cools down. Here[..]
