My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, ... thank you!

Preparing for Any Eventuality

I've been working to become organized, and to prepare myself for any eventuality but I failed miserably. No problem. Gonna pick myself up and start again.

What happened?

My son happened. He's always been a handful, and in the middle of most of the arguments between Hubby and I. Now he's been diagnosed as developmentally disabled. That explains a lot. But I wasn't prepared. I mean, who prepares for things like that?!

So while I'm organizing myself and my home, I'm also organizing my mind. But since I have almost no memory (almost never sleep), I have to write it all down. Plan it all out on paper.

My 2011 calendar and address books are getting quite full. I type out my notes, organize them, reduce them, and cut them out/tape them into these booklets. Carry them everywhere. Refer to them as needed.

I'm bound and determined to get through this a better person.

And become more prepared for "any eventuality".
