Broken mirrors…..

Broken into a bunch of shards…

glass will cut you…

You will feel the pain..

down deep..

blood will fall into drips

on the floor…

You will do your best…

to clean up the mess…

blood stains

your life as you know it…

changes..

It isn’t the same…

things are different….

The way you look at things…

the things you say to others…

the way you feel about things…

You no longer take for granted…

the things you cherish…

the things you love…

You wish for more time…

Your wish is granted…

You live it to the fullest…

But still…

there are shards of glass everywhere…

waiting to break you into a million pieces…

But you are stronger than the glass…

And you survive….

And pick up the pieces….

Twofer Monday….

Today dawned, and I am feeling better.  I had promised the Farmer I would come over and do my thing.    I arrived a little later than usual, and he looked at me with a bit of a WOOHOO in his eyes.    I think he has missed me.

I got busy with breakfast, and also a little scavenger hunt.  Caregiver Beth has been attending to the Farmer and Momma since Friday.  While her help is greatly appreciated, she does not necessarily know where everything goes.  Don’t get me wrong, she did a wonderful job.   I just had a hard time finding where she had put some of the cooking stuff.  I found everything and put it back where it belonged.

The Farmer went to the store, and I tended Momma.  She was happy to see me and we giggled for a bit.  I got her up and picked out some clothes for her, gave her a bath, and then with the Farmer’s help, we entered the front room.  She was a champ, smiling and walking almost normal.  Her left foot wants to walk on tippy toes, and this is not good.

With her all settled into the chair, and all of my stuff done, I headed on down the road.   I got home and did some stuff, when I got 2 phone calls.  The first one, was that Caregiver Beth could not come back and put momma back to bed, so arrangements were made for me to come back and put Momma to bed.  The second, was from the Nursing student , she has clinicals tomorrow and Wednesday and they need me to watch Cam-man for about an hour.  No problem.

After the Electrician and I had dinner, I headed back down the road, and it was not actually snowing, more like sleeting, and I arrived at the Farmers.  Momma was like a breath of fresh air.  Apparently they were watching the Simpson’s and Momma was giggling.  I warmed up the Farmer’s dinner and gave it to him, it was left over turkey and noodles over mashed potato’s from my house, and he scarfed it down.    I do have to insert here, when I originally made the Turkey and noodles, it was yesterday, and I am in favor of spices.

While the Electrician and I had the same dinner at my house, even the Electrician stated, “Uhm..babe, it is definitely a little spicier than last night..”  With that being said, you could say,  I “lit” the Farmer up with my comfort food.

Momma got all tucked into her bed and was comfy and warm, I was worried about her though, simply because her cheeks were so rosy, we took her temp, and she’s ok.  I’ve been breathing on her all day, and I have to pause here, simply because while I have been on antibiotics now for 4 days, it makes me nervous.    What I have could kill her, and I don’t want to do that.  I do know that the Doctor told me, if I am antibiotics for a 24 hour period, I technically am not contagious.    But I still get worried.

After getting Momma all tucked up, I came home.  The sleet/snow has stopped, and I arrived safely.  I took my shower, later than usual, and my mane of hair has dried. (I HATE blow-dryers).  I have watched the season finale of “The Revolution” and am in a quandary.  I truly love the show and the way it makes me think.

While I have missed “chatting” with certain peeps, I hope they understand.  Today was my “twofer” day.  While I have enjoyed it, I am truly tired now.   Tomorrow is a big day, because Momma is going to see her Doctor.  I’ll let y’all know how that goes.

Fall Television….

Ok, I have a confession to make.  I usually do not watch to many things on t.v.  I usually play on the computer, with the t.v. in the background.  There is a show I am ‘hooked” on.

When we first heard about a show called “The Revolution“, it was from our cousin’s.  You see the Electrician’s third cousin had a part in the series.  Our little girl,  cousin Morgan Hinkleman, played the role of ‘Charlie” when she was a little girl.  There was a lot of talk going on in the family, and ok, the Electrician and I were interested.

The Premiere of The Revolution came on and the Electrician and I watched it.  I must confess, I was pleased to see little Morgan, but then the whole show took me into a life, that I could only imagine.

The premise of the show, is what would happen to the world if all the power went out. No more phones, no more t.v.’s, no more lights,no more computers,  and chaos ensues.

I do have to admit, I have been sucked into the series, and I enjoy Monday nights glued in front of the t.v. to see what happens next.  To say that, and know that the Electrician prefers watching this show with me snuggled together instead of Monday Night Football, says a BUNCH!!!  Although with that being said, if the Bears are playing on a Monday night, well, I’ll be in the other room and he will DVR it.

For those of my blogger friends that do not have the opportunity to see this show, they do have a web site and you can see the episodes online at

It is more of a Science Fiction type of thing, but the Electrician and I have sat here and plotted out how we would make it through an event such as this.   We have figured out how to make our house safer from intruders, and how to manage with no electricity.  We remembered those 7 days a couple of winters ago, when we had no electricity, and no water.  (We are in the country and live on well water, no power, no water).  Hey, I do have a pond out back though!

Considering the amount of scented candles I have around here, we could make it for approximately 78 hours of night-time.  I need more candles.    We have enough wood we could have some campfires, and I also need to go get some more charcoal.  The first few days, no problem, I’d just have to cook everything I have in the 3 freezers and we could last a couple of weeks.  With all the Deer, and other wildlife around here, we might be able to survive for a bit, but with winter coming, it’s gonna get cold.

The whole premise of the story makes you stop and think, because after all it is just a story, and a t.v. show, but the Electrician and I?  We are thinking ahead.

But, like I said at the beginning of this post, I don’t watch to many t.v. shows, but I am truly enjoying this one.
