A blitz at Mayfair
Much underwear is involved
Chelle goes home. I stay

Nov 3 - This Golden City Book Launch Just Might Be Our First Community-Level Big Social Event Since We Left For Honduras. Yikes.

The girl just won't quit
Gym no longer does her in
We jump, swim, slide, spin

Keep the kid tired
We're having a sleepover
I'll be asleep first

A treat: Free movies
I binge until my ears hurt
Make these hours pass

We all lie so well

We brave it, toes on the line
Chasing skeletons

We sunburn in the grandstands
then eat street tacos

Oct 26 - On The Upside, We Did Get $60 Worth Of Food Vouchers And Gained The Valuable Knowledge That A Plane's Front Window Can Crack For No Reason At All Right On The Runway


Wake up to crisis
And so it goes all day. Flights
that never happen

Dogs come and go, but she sticks
Patient and friendly

We appreciate the bed
A place for our stuff
