It's That Time of Year Again...

It's that time of year again.

No, not Tax Day. It's Marti's Birthday...

Which this year also coincides with The Prom.

Once again I found myself struggling to make a corsage for The Beloved as The Eldest Unnamed One had to have one that went with her gown...(Which someone said was blue-green...Not!)

I think after a few years of practice I may be getting the hang of it.

They are so happy, so full of the world and its possibilities.

I'm exhausted. It's been a day of baking, housecleaning, celebrating and trying hard not to remember that in a few short months my boy and his friends will be flying the nest and leaving the world we have shared for 18 short years.

I suppose that means Bailey will be getting more haircuts and having to put up with a neurotic owner who shaves his hair off and dresses him up funny costumes...

Happy Birthday, Marti!

Just think of all the fun the unmamed one is about to have-- scary, ain't it?

By the way, I moved my blog here.

I'll be reading at the Central Branch of the GSO Public Library Monday night beginning at 7. You're invited to come out and sit at a table in the back with a stack of your books to sell or just come out.

Oh, and if you want to read a poem bring one for the open mic.
