Catching up

Well,now I have some time to breathe.

My life has been in a cave since Caitin's surgery

She can hear so much better, we have to whisper

the refrigerator coming on wakes her up.

I remember when she was sick when she was bitty....

how I could rock her and sing to her.....

how I could fix anything that was wrong...

she's sure, now at 16, that all her pain is somehow my fault.

 she is better today.

She got her stitches out .

When she pointed at a tissue she dropped on the floor and asked me to get it, I officially declared her post-surgical recovery complete!

For Father's Day, we planted a tree.

Tom found it growing through the concrete at work.

He brought it home and stuck it in some dirt in a cup

Now it's taller than me and we put it in the ground.

It's what I love about Tom

 

 

 

he sees the potential  for magic

in everyday things

other people walk by thoughtlessly,

like rocks

he's always handing them to me, saying,"look, this is a great rock to hold in your hand. Put it in your pocket."

If I ever fall in the water, I will surely drown !

 

We took Tori to Girl Scout camp. It was a nice ride. I wish I was going with her.

Happy Summer,

Marti

Reminds me of when my Aunt  first had a hearing aid. She went to the toilet and was astounded! She said she never knew having a wee sounded like Niagra Falls!!

Think I'm a bit like hubby, I go around saving everything I can.

SO happy that Caitin is doing better. I'm sure  you feel relieved. That's so good of Tom to bring the tree home.  Now it's a nice growing thriving tree. Something like that. I'm don't have a green thumb.
