This one is going to the doc tomorrow, because of being so skinny and small, and having diarrhea for awhile.... I'm worried she's got another parasite.

Day 117

No work today, only fun.  Speaking of fun, people are BUYING MY ART.  I know. They must be crazy!  But this is so freaking awesome. Doing what I love, and not worrying about not having actual work today, because I'm making stuff and getting paid to do it!

Day 115

Willow declared that along with tonight being Movie Night, it's also Party Night, which means we needed a CAKE.  Specifically, chocolate cake with chocolate icing and sprinkles, the word "FAMILY" on it so everyone can eat it, and all of our ages added up, with that number on the cake.

Day 113

Zaia came flying into my room after we'd all gone to bed...I said, "What's up?" He said, "You didn't hear that thumping sound??" I said, "I heard you thumping... You scared?" 

"Yeah... Can I stay in here with you?" 

"Yep. Go to sleep."

I sensed him sitting straight up, and asked if he'd feel better if I had a knife or pepper spray close by.  He said, "I've got my pocket knife..." and laid down. 

After a few minutes, he said, "I freaked out over nothing, didn't I." 

"I think so, babe, but that's okay. I do, too, sometimes." 

And then he went back to his room. 

And I laid there for a long time, remembering how scared I was the last couple years of my marriage.  I moved into our guest room a year before we got divorced....I don't think I need to say why... And slept with the door locked and a knife under my pillow until I was finally able to move out.

Day 111

I dreamed last night, all the people from the conference were in it. We had to tear down a huge machine, piece by piece, clean the pieces, and try to put it back together, in the dark... All while a battle was raging around  us. Dodging bullets and stomping out fires.... It was a really frustrating feeling.

Day 105

Took the girls over to one of my favorite stores, The Country Dollar - where EVERYTHING is a dollar.  They each picked out 3 things, and were very pleased. Good way to kill time on this rainy day, before we had to go get Zaia.

Day 92

Wow.  Pretty sure he wants to go to jail for contempt.  

Day 91

It was a good day.  I actually thought it was going to be an entire day with no drama... I was wrong.  But that's okay.  I'm working on a solution to the constant harassment and badgering I've been getting from you know who.
