About Me

My photo
Spokane, WA
This profile photo is my mom and me at the beach--she is 26 and I am about 18 months. LOVE the joy!! I am a mom of three and a teacher; being a teacher means I have to go back and cut the f-bombs. There were a few. Because Alzheimer's sucks badly. This blog, for nine years now--skipping a few while I was too cheap to buy my domain name-- helps me un-peel and process the endless layers of sad woven with weird and--impossibly--comedy.

The memorial was last night. It was sweet to hear my dad talk about my mom as if they were old friends..because really they were. I touched on her gloominess but didn't speak of the drunkedness.. when the minister, after the shares from me, Chris, my dad, Connie and Mary Cheryl happened--said she sounded very "intense." I was like, "Yeah. That fits" and makes her sound more like me; like all of us.
Anyway, Sue and Patty singing were wonderful and a little like the circle of life. I remember when they sang at Grandma Cole's funeral..who died when she should have--at 94 or something.
Anyway, I'm sick and wheezing. This is the 7th time I've been sick this winter. Well, I guess that included Fall and late fall. I am just posting this mo-fo of a video project because last night we couldn't get sufficient broadband to run it through the pre-produced program, and then couldn't get it to record onto a DVD and didn't have the correct technology (the old mac wouldn't work with an HDMI cable from a new PC) people kept saying, "Oh so and so is a tech guy. I was like, I am a tech guy. It's not working.
It was stressful and I put on my makeup without looking at the back of the church. I even put on fake fingernails; Agonizing all the while about the fact that I had put ALL MY TIME and energy and love into this video and it was NOT GOING TO play. Well, it actually played with limited audio at the downstair reception so a handful of people saw it. Whatever. Here's a damn link to it.
