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, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... 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".
