Thursday Full of Opportunities

Grandgirls mom called yesterday to put me on notice that the birth of baby #4 was imminent. Supposedly another girl, I hope so, but doctors have been wrong before and no matter how advanced technology gets, I won’t believe it until I see it…her. She has asked her sisters, Princess and Bean, to go with her to the delivery room, my job is to take care of Juliette, who is three.

I love her desperately, but I’d have a better chance of surviving by giving birth to #4 myself rather than being left alone with Juliette. She doesn’t sleep, she talks non-stop, and if I knew how to trap frenetic energy, I could supply power to my entire neighborhood. Julzy does things like paint the cat with toothpaste. Her middle name is “drama”. Lucky for me, Juliette loves being outside mucking in the garden as much as I do. If the rain holds off… I will wear the little darling down jogging between the tired vegetable garden and the mulch pile.

In the event we don’t get a baby today, I have just one feature story for the newspaper this week. Computers breaking, cars breaking… this week was too chaotic to get much of anything accomplished.

This is one of those moments I remember why I never divorce Papa Bear. After a day of hopping like Tigger, endless rounds of “the wheels on the bus”, a monster sized temper tantrum over a nap, followed by an equally frantic crying jag because she was not permited to eat the cat’s food… Pap arrived to take Juliette (the chatter box) and I out to dinner and then, and this truly makes him my hero, to our house to put her to bed while I stay here in Bean’s quiet, tidy apartment. Calgon calls….

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
