Awesome News

I just received a call from my boss last night asking me if I wanted to go full time.  Of course I said "Hell Yeah". The awesome part is my youngest can walk with one of her friends to the store after school. My bosses are very cool and let my girls sit at work with me until the someone can pick them up. They are letting my daughter stay with me for the last two hours of my shift. How awesome is that? My oldest will be walking home with one of her friends and I will pick her up after school. Now with more hours we might just be able to afford cable. Of course I will have to see what our heat bills are first.

So, that is my awesome news. I think my girls and i are going to make it. No, scratch that, I KNOW we will.

Now if only I could find that lumberjack that just wants to have fun. No mushy relationship for me. No marriage, no boyfriend, no man living in the house. After two failed marriages I don't want that anymore. I want to prove that I can make it on my own.

Oh, and my girls walked to school without me today. How very sad for me. They are growing up. (sniff, sniff)

Hope you all receive some awesome news as well,V.

  27. Here it is ... sorry, not sure how else to get it to you but cut and paste which messes up some of the lineation ...

    Vulture by Robinson Jeffers

    I had walked since dawn and lay down to rest on a bare hillside
    Above the ocean. I saw through half-shut eyelids a vulture wheeling
    high up in heaven,
    And presently it passed again, but lower and nearer, its orbit
    I understood then
    That I was under inspection. I lay death-still and heard the flight-
    Whistle above me and make their circle and come nearer.
    I could see the naked red head between the great wings
    Bear downward staring. I said, "My dear bird, we are wasting time
    These old bones will still work; they are not for you." But how
    he looked, gliding down
    On those great sails; how beautiful he looked, veering away in the
    over the precipice. I tell you solemnly
    That I was sorry to have disappointed him. To be eaten by that beak
    become part of him, to share those wings and those eyes--
    What a sublime end of one's body, what and enskyment; what a life
    after death.

  28. Hi Real Queen of Horror

    Thank you!!!

  29. Hi Dr. Theda

    You are very welcome. I have received a lot of support as well from my fellow bloggers. I know you are having a hard time and only wish you the best.

    Blessings and Hugs, Lady Moss

  30. Hi kieth

    I read the other poem and some of his other works but this one is amazing.

    He has put so eloquently the way i feel about death. No metal box for me. i want to become "food" for the Earth. Thank you so much for letting me know about this awesome poet. I even found some info on him on a pantheism site. Very cool.

    Thanks so much Keith, V.

  31. Such great news and it is so nice when bosses are flexible like that especially when you have kids. Great job !!!

  32. Hi Moncha

    Yes, it is great news. I love that they are flexible. It is a little hard when you have kids.
