This is a sky flower I see on my way to work every day! Beautiful but can be quite invasive!
The good news is ... Mandy does not have Chicken Pox, Thank God, and thank all of you for asking! After playing phone tag with her for a couple of days she finally said that the mystery spots that she was so panicked about the other night have disappeared. I asked if telling me that was just her way of stopping me from calling all day, every day to check up on her. She assured me that they are gone, I'll find out in a few minutes because she's on her way over.
The baby is all grown up ... Mandy is 18 now, she moved out in October, she has a job that she likes with my friend Sheila in a law office and shares an apartment with 2 of her friends. She's still the baby to me, but ...
I filed a new w4 form at work today and claimed single with no children living at home for the first time in 23 years. We also had open enrollment this week and as of May 1st Mandy will no longer be covered on my health insurance. The Law office where she works will be offering her a benefit plan of her own now. Yay and Yikes!
Reality Check ... Coy, you are officially single without children living at home! Free, Single ... I've been so busy raising children and going through divorce that I forgot to make plans for this time in my life!
I wonder ... what happens next?
