Thinking of my family at this late hour.  It is 1am here.  2am back home. I am on vacation and can’t sleep.  All but one family member is at home in Casa de Familia. I was working a night job delivering newspapers.  One night I happened to deliver to a business that had an old… Continue Reading

Lies and other fun stuff – life with a klepto part 2

We were up late due to the excitement of fireworks, a fire pit and s’mores. To bed at 3am and up at 6am.  what a joy. David had my cell phone this morning, so friends, if you received either a text message or an email from my phone this morning, it wasn’t me. So I… Continue Reading

if I pull any more hair out, i’ll be bald

David is in full form tonight.  He is all wound up and attention needy.  Which means that he will do whatever it takes to get attention. Positive or Negative. Now, some people say “ignore him”. Easy for you to say, you don’t live with him 24/7.  When he gets like this the other kids hide,… Continue Reading
