I got E N G A G E D to the Farmer Guy (first public announcement) by accepting a big R O C K, started wedding planning, sat on a felony jury, traveled all over my
great state, c e l e b r a t e d my son's 17th birthday, attempted NaNoWriMo, all while
negotiating 42 SES provider contracts. Weren't there also a few f a b u l o u s holidays with a few more to plan?

Most tense moment - I overcooked a whole spaghetti squash in my
oven (remnants still remain). I raced into the kitchen after the s o n i c b o o m and threw my beloved Blackberry into the dishwater.
was that so stressful?
Um, well, (eat crow) I switched over to
this distracted living device called the iPhone (first public
announcement), which I swore I would never - ever - ever do.
Surely I've left out a few critical moments, like ortho appointments, school events, volleyball tournaments, holiday photo shoots, adopting a very sick puppy, and my
ex-husband moving to town.
When I looked at the Rahe scale of life's possible

the floor in a fetal position sucking on my dreadlocks.
I knew why. I had w o r d s! Peaceful words of g r a t i t u d e.
I repeated this m a n t r a.
"To whom much is given, much is required."
And I had been given lots.
