This year, 2018, marks the 10th anniversary of my wedding to W. As part of the celebration, I will be documenting our relationship from the proposal up to the wedding, and each year up to our 10th anniversary. The days leading up to ringing the New Year, 2015, made us feel empowered to achieve almost... Continue Reading →
Can't. Used to. Was. Doesn't. Loved. These are the words I never thought I would use to describe my mother at 63 years of age. So full of life a few months ago and now she is, for the most part, bed ridden and/or lethargic. She can barely speak, eat or drink. This brick house... Continue Reading →
She's not getting any better. Back in August when the tumor, which looks like two masses, they told us she had three to six months to live without chemo or radiation treatments. We are on month four of six, in hospice care, waiting for the 9.0 earthquake inside her head that erases her from existence.... Continue Reading →
Una vez mas, ¡Feliz Navidad! (Poema original)
Feliz Navidad a los solteros,
a los casados y/o con hijos,
a los que estan enjevaos,
y a los que están en la brega con los babies, fajaos en una casa de un solo proveedor.
Agradezco el servicio de los militares en deployment,
los profesionales médicos y de salud que están sanando corazones rotos esta navidad, caídas y desbarajustes navideños,
a los policías asegurándose que estamos seguros,
y A los bomberos apagando arbolitos adornados en llamas.
Shout out especial a todo el que abrió la tienda o la lechonera hoy para poder comer en familia,
especialmente pa los que están de vacaciones o deplazados en un hotel;
a los que abrieron su casa a extraños o amigos necesitados para que tuvieran compañía y Chrismas espirit.
a los que nos carretean en plana temporada de turismo y necesitan el negocio pa sobrevivir el año.
Un abrazo con toda mi alma, devoción…

Hi gang! This is Zach, reporting live from my comfy bed at home. My human tells me that I have 300 friends on IG which is cool because a) they are virtual so I don't have to leave the house or dress up to interact with them, and b) I get to see lots of... Continue Reading →
After months of planning, saving and finagling, Nursery Trees LLC broke ground and installed a row of excelsa cedar specimens in front of our side fence. The property originally had 25 trees, of which only one was left standing. I'm not sure why the county didn't ask for more to be preserved or installed as... Continue Reading →
