Sitting here at 10:14 a.m. enjoying my Pepsi having switched from coffee (not drinking has left me with sugar need) when suddenly I hear what sounds like someone trying to enter the apartment. At first I thought I might have imagined it save for the fact that both Loki and Lucky were staring at the stairs. When I get to the bottom of the stairs it registers that there is a key in the lock and the door has already been unlocked.
In swaggers Tember.
Who was not suppose to be home until early afternoon.
Me: What are you doing here? This is not early afternoon. This is 10:14 a.m. Not even mid-morning!
Tember: Well apparently dad was an early bird this morning.
Me: But it is not early afternoon! What if I had had company?
Tember: Had what?
Me: Company.
Tember: Well I guess I would have made a new friend.
I tell you I cannot make these up if I tried to.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
