Van Winkle Rehab (ALF)


my townhouse (ALF) has become an Assisted Living Facility or Rehab


my son sought relief in the A/C

from 104 degree temperatures

and symptoms of



the grands

needed time with their i-pads

and chimichangas

from Mexican Radio.


We all enjoyed cool time

on the couch,

a rebounder,

toys at Nana’s house


in a tick free house.


warming up for Independence Day!

Sleep-deprived but valiant


(2013) Annika was born in 2008; (2015 )Oliver was born in 2011


one two year old who loved climbing out of his crib


 one five year old who loved reading by the bedroom lamp 

equals less sleep in 2013.


one four year old who plays on the bottom bunk


one seven year old who likes to stay up and spy on the adults

equals less sleep in 2015.


here we are in 2018

and Dad is diagnosed with Ehrlichiosis

a tick borne illness from a tick bite

likely 2 weeks ago.
