a decade passed

ten birthdays,

two bar mitzvahs,

first jobs



sports and art expos,

a high school graduation,

driving a car


one off to college.

dreams so desperately wished upon

have passed without her here ~ ~ ~


though i see her in their eyes


feel her in my heart,

the sadness of missing my mother will never fade

under the weather

the eyes speak volumes

not feeling like herself

worried and feeling helpless

mommy loves her girl

poor pee

feeling blah….

Pee and I made a trip to the emergency animal hospital at 2am this morning, where we watched the sunrise.  I will spare y’all the details, but I will say she is going to be alright.  Antibiotics for two weeks and lots of extra loving care (uhhh…. more than the already ‘tons’ she already gets:)  Needless to say, I am a worry wort and in serious need of a nap.

nightly consessions

as we succumb to sleep each night,

she gets 1/3rd


i get 2/3rd.

all is comfy and cozy…copacetic


she shakes,










a few hours later,

i am lying awake –

unable to sleep a wink…

exhausted from the nightly battle –

for mattress domination.

as i roll over and look into

the big brown eyes of my opponent,

it seems the tables have turned…

a victor has been proclaimed –


she has 2/3rd,





New Image

yes, you may think she is cute
try sleeping with her…

she usually sleeps on her own bed – oops – i meant her brother’s bed, but the below zero nights have made for a chilly puppy.  i have made an exception and allowed her to go running – oops – i mean sleep with me.  it is nice to know that one of us is keeping up with their exercise in this very cold weather and getting a good night’s sleep.  🙂

opening night

standing center stage

Puccini marked his debut

nineteen years ago

Happy Birthday Pnut

ps:  Nineteen years ago, Jordan was born…while listening to Puccini’s famous aria Un Bel Di from his opera Madame Butterfly.  There were two ironies present at that moment – Jordan made his momentous entrance into the spot light as Kiri Te Kanawa ‘hit the high note’ of the final crescendo.  As a dancer and choreographer, I could not have staged this moment more perfectly!  Second irony of the day – Un Bel Di translates into One Beautiful Day.  January 23, 1995 was a beautiful day indeed.

ps take two:  Puccini’s O Mio Bambino Cara (My Beloved Father) was also on my CD, but Pnut must not have been ready for his grand entrance.  A divo cannot to be rushed! (he still cannot be rushed) Not to mention the fact that it was the beloved mother who was experiencing natural childbirth  – not the beloved dad, who was standing with a camcorder….waiting…. 🙂
