Living Room Snow

DaGoddess @ 23:58

I’ve vacuumed in here twice since I started dog sitting. And tonight…tonight…tonight, it looks like a snowman was murdered here.

Someone disemboweled a stuffed animal. There is now bits of fluff all over the place.

I shall be vacuuming again in the morning. My friends will be back from their trip, which was NOT to Europe as I thought, but that matters not. It matters to me that I can watch them walk into the house and see it not destroyed by crack monkeys.

On a happier note, I had dinner with Mojo tonight, got her set up with Skype, and we played on our laptops together, just enjoying being in the same room. Things have been changing very quickly in her world lately. She’s been emancipated. Moved out of my sister’s house. Is working a second job. And mostly, she’s just trying to figure out what she’s going to do with herself. She has a lot to deal with and while we did talk about the situation she’s in, this was mostly an evening for us to just be together and for her to relax. Which she did. I love my girl. I get what’s going on in her head. And for now, I’m just giving her a chance to talk it out, cry it out, yell it out as much as she needs to. Later, we can tackle the big stuff. Until that time, she gets a shoulder, an ear, my heart, and a hug.

If things have been light and superficial around here a bit too much for a bit too long, let’s just say there’s been plenty of reasons behind that. Yes, travel/photography work. Yes, not feeling well. But more than that, there have been family things and court stuff and just way too much of everything weighing on my head and heart. This moment with Mo and the time with LD…it means everything to me for a million different reasons.

Love y’all. Thanks for sticking around. Thanks for knowing I’ll catch up soon enough.

Good night.


  1. Glad you got in some quality mom-daughter time. Since she’s emancipated, any chance of her coming to live with you?

  5. Sounds to me like you are doing the mom thing just right – and skype rocks for keeping in touch with kids far away. :nana:

  6. Emancipation for any young adult is a myriad of emotions (and a necessity): happiness, ecstasy, fear, sadness, loss…the good thing is she has you, and she is most fortunate for that.

  7. Umm…bits of fluff around the house….yeah, we call those “floor clouds”…LOL…and I’m guessing it was Tori because she cannot stand having any intact, stuffed squeeky toys around her…some sort of phobia, I’m guessing.

    Thanks for housesitting…we really, really, really appreciate you tolerating the crack monkeys for the week we were not in Europe.
