  1. stones from my heart

    by , 07-26-2011 at 02:27 PM
    I sit at the beach and practice the meditation on forgiveness. (Again.) Again and again. I imagine hugging my relatives (this has to start close to home before it can branch out anywhere.) On down the line I go, real hug, real hug, real hug, then- OOPS- clunker! THAT person feels really hard to hug…oooo; and him too… It feels fake, a perfunctory hug. After the things you’ve done, it doesn’t feel real to want to hug you. All those years of wanting to protect myself from the pain you’ve dished. ...

    How do I get used to seeing my town like this? Half my neighbourhood is leveled, stairways to nowhere line the streets. These streets I played on as a child are fenced off and filled with ash and burned rubble. All those trees that grew up with me are black and dead. The corner store by the school where I used to go every lunch hour is gone except for the sign.

I'm just nervous about school starting bac to school clothes and shoes for the kids and a bunch of other stuff on my mind and doing it all alone and then trying to keep a marriage going through bars doesn't help make matters easier. I see him almost EVERY week for two visits but am getting so drained now I just need a break. He says he understands if I miss ...
  5. Coogi Jeans / what jeans do ya'all wear to visits?

    by , 07-20-2011 at 10:43 PM
    Has anyone been able to clear the metal detector wearing Coogi jeans with the metal plated Coogi sign on the back?
    I'm nervous that if I wear those tomorrow I won't get through. Although I have three times to get through before my visit is denied, I'd really like to wear the outfit I have picked out.
