catchin' up

I have been absent for awhile,

 partially due to various adventures,

 mostly due to ANOTHER COMPUTER SCREW UP!!!!!!!!!!!!

 I hate BellSouth DSL!!!!!!!!!! 

 I pitched such a bitch this time I am supposedly getting a month free service, an upgrade and a free digital camera.....

we'll see.....

right now I am still writing on a friends computer.


well, the awful inevitable happened

Caitlin failed algebra and got booted from the cheerleading squad.

God love her, it is the first thing ever in her life she couldn't "sweetandcute" her way out of.

A hard lesson,

An overdue one.

I hope she won't have to learn them all the hard way.

She wailed.

I sniffed.

The guidance counselor and the cheerleading coach hung on each others shoulders.

Caitlin's lessons are hard on all of us.

The next day I lay in bed, dreading to face her.

She stuck her head around the door of my room of gloom and said ,

"I'm over it, Mom,

 let's go to the beach!"

More later, I promise.

I must go.....the hazards of the borrowed computer...

cyberlessly yours,


PS Thanks Martha, for giving me a nod to get started up again!
