the good ole' new blues

Tiffany sat across from me in the restaurant yesterday. She loves 'greek pizza' with a thick, almost bisquit crust, so we went to the 'greek pizza' place down the street for lunch after taking the 2nd look at a property. It was after we got the main course that she looked at me quite seriously and said "It feels like all of our lives are about to change in a big way," and she was right. I nodded and had another crispy, ketchupy french fry.

In all of her 18 years, she's had a few big changes happen to her life. Her older brother was sent away, institutionalized for months, and only ever came home years later a very different person. She also saw her father file for divorce from me so that he could be with a young man 18 years his junior. For a few years she and her sister lived with Dad in a country setting, and then in her 12th year she came to live with me in a more urban town.

Yes Tiffany, you said a mouth full. Now, pass the Snickers cheesecake pie please.

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
