My Own Personal D-Day

September 2, 9:30 Am, Courtroom 3 - Divorce court.

I'm told it's like traffic court (wouldn't know, never been) and everyone slated for the docket that day waits their turn. We'll see. I'm bringing a book, because I think my usual origami pastime might not be appropriate.
Now for something not depressing:

Rook likes to nap against my leg. I like to let her.

hi K!

any form of separation is indeed devastating. it's like removing shoelaces that are wet, really!

when my parents separated when i was 11, that was 37 years ago, i tell you it was disaster...but still, the beauty of life is, you always get to cling on to hope. and to hope i did cling to. hope doesn't mean finding the right partner in life (which i never did have), but the bright side of life that tells me i know i can make it in this world!

YYYYYeSSSSS! and now, i'm taking care of mom, and a beautiful 16-year old...ooohhhh yes, i'm terrified knowing she's growing up to be quite independent (she was homeschooled too!) but confident she's equipped with life skills she needs for living... and thriving. i guess the little birds in the nest need some pushing to learn to fly, right? and to soar we dream our children to be.

you have a wonderful future in store for you, K, really! i'm sure, the little one is growing up to be a fine lad! a great Mum you are!

let's drink to that! (coffee?tea? wine? or beer????)

go gently my dear...sending you warm island sunshine...
