October 29, 2009
Snow out west, rain continues in the midwest, drought in the far west.
The President has been granting visiting privileges at the White House to mega-donors.
Our lawmakers are looking at a bill that will make it illegal to not buy health insurance. Are they kidding?
Last night I went to see a movie at Ragtag, a documentary about Vogue Magazine's September issue. Went alone.
My youngest son and his new girl "friend" think that women like me, who go places alone, are sad examples of life. C'est la vie.
The rain continues. It is five a.m. and the house is asleep.
The cats sleep, one on the floor near my legs and one on the couch.
There is no movement from anyone. No floors creaking as someone walks across them to go to the bathroom, get water. No sound except the hum of the computer.
The household inhabitants tonight total five, not including cats.
The day is yet to begin.
The gym awaits.
And a child will be talked with today concerning the drug paraphernalia found in his pocket.
Trash will be put on the curb.
Laundry and cleaning will be done.
Two sons will go to school and one to work.
Randy will leave at eight and return at nine.
Richa will go to class and return in the late afternoon.
I will do my work, bake cookies, run errands, study french and go to work.
These are our lives.

"Above all else, guard your heart.
For it is the wellspring of life" Proverbs 4:23
