Why Gypsy? I always wanted to be a gypsy. The romantic idea of roaming from place to place with my extended family has always stuck with me. Funny, too, since I am an only child and even my cousins are either *way* older than me or *way* younger. And there are only four of them. Nonetheless, this is my blog and I can be who I wish to be here. So I am Gypsy.
day has started off well. My kids actually have school today, so I got
them out the door for school - on time! <Insert wild cheering and
back-slapping appreciation here!> I am doing my domestic goddess
routine today (laundry, house cleaning, cooking, organizing,
prep'ing...) Getting the beginning thing off to a good start.
love of my life, Zeus, is home today too. Actually he's home every
day. He's a hermit. Makes the gypsy wandering-about thing difficult,
but he's worth it. About two years ago he decided that actually going
into his office to work required too much socializing, so now he's home
full time. I love it. He helps me a lot. And since I *have* to go
into my office every day, it makes life easier to have him home doing a
fair amount of the little stuff. So, after 12 years of courtship, and
another 9 of marriage, he remains, absolutely, the love of my life.
to round out my merry little gypsy band, I have Tinker Bell and Iron
Man. Masha 'Allah they are my twin hearts. They are my raison d'etre.
They are why I push harder than I ever thought I possibly could. Just a
smile from one of them and I am complete mush.
yes, I am a stream-of-conciousness type of blogger. I don't have a
lot of time, so I go with what comes out of my fingers without much
re-reading or editing. You may call me out on it if you wish. In fact,
if anyone out there is, in fact, reading, I'd love to hear anything you
may have to say. And I will take the time to check you out, too. Hey,
we could even get to be friends! You could join my band of gypsies,
even. But, perhaps I get ahead of myself. This is the time of year
With a Thankful and Enthusiastic Heart,
