so, we got a cute little white bunny in August of this year. he was 6 weeks old, adorable, fit in the palm of your hand, snuggly and sweet.

it is now two months later
bunny is much bigger, hates snuggling, and spends all of its cage-free moments trying to hump the cat.

this is NOT what i signed up for!

My Tarot deck has gone walkabout.


it just disappeared from my bag, adn can't be found anywhere.

this is the 3rd or 4th deck that has done so in the course of 20-something years.
each time i needed to let go of  the deck for some reason or other. either letting go of the person who gave it to me, or the belief systems i had embraced when i got it. .  . . .argh.

very annoying!!

so i suppose that means  i should "let go" of this deck and find another one to work with. . . . but WHich??  


suggestions welcome. . .. .

i was a "good kid" growing up. i got mostly A's and B+'s, worked part time, had a few friends in different "clicques", and 98% of the time my mother knew where i was and what i was doing.  

was i perfect?  hell no. i was rebellious, i had a smart mouth.  there was the ONE time i slept at my boyfriend's house -- terrified i'd get found out and riddled iwth guilt the entire time!  my father was alcoholic and abusive, my mother was a control freak; so i guess i had plenty to rebel against. and altho there were some things i did that were rebellious (like getting contact lenses when my father didn't want me to, getting my ears pierced also against his wishes, etc.) i was not out of control the way these kids are.

am i the only one??  

people keep telling me that "teenagers do that" when i complain about my teens' various lying and deceptive behaviours.  well, *I* didn't do that, so it's completely foreign to me.  and i din't hang out iwth kids who did that. i have no frame of reference for this.  and i'm sorry, but i REALLY DON'T BELIEVE that this is normal behavior.  I believe it is ABNORMAL behavior, and certainly not to be tolerated. 

i think part of the problem is i don't have friends who have kids the same age as my kids; either they are childless (or in the early stage of the journey) or their kids are grown and out and gone and have been for years.  

so tell me: were you a wild kid?  an unruly teen?  what was it like?  what did your parents do that was effective?  note effective?  do you have teens now?  are they out of control like this -- e.g. getting into trouble iwth the police, sneakign out of the house in the middle of the night, lying about where they are and what they are doing. . .. 

i really want to know.

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you
have plenty of room at each side. With a 5-lb potato
sack in each hand, extend your arms straight out from
your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try
to reach a full minute, and then relax. Each day
you'll find that you can hold this position for just a
bit longer.

After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato
sacks. Then try 50-lb. potato sacks and then
eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb
potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight
for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level.)

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato
in each of the sacks.

i'm sorry, but i really do -- and i really hate parenting teenagers. it's just vile that these "people" -- and i use the term loosely! -- are so rude and obnoxious and unreasonable. what a waste of my time and energy!!!

You Are a Carousel

You are young at heart and a truly playful person. No one would ever accuse you of taking life too seriously.
You are definitely in things for the fun. You find joy easily, and you are often building up anticipation for your next adventure.
In relationships, you tend to want to be babied and taken care of.
And while you may be a bit high maintenance, you are incredibly loyal.

Your life is simple and satisfying. Each day you treat yourself to something you enjoy.
You have a lot of emotional attachments, and experiences are extra vivid to you.
You tend to be nostalgic and sentimental. The past is important to you.
Comfortable around all living things, you have a special connection to animals and children.

At your best, you are whimsical, free spirited, and creative.
Even if your schemes seem a bit strange, they usually work out wonderfully.
At your worst, you are spoiled, demanding, and impossible to satisfy.
You've been known to act like a brat if you aren't getting your way!

this week we lost Phil Rizuto, as well as Merv Griffin. both are part of my personal past, growing up in the Bronx watching the Merv Griffin show and listening to Phil as commentator on the Yankees games. . . . ..

it's very sad.

RIP fellas. you was great.

You Are Not Prejudiced

Not only are you color blind, but you're also ethnicity blind, gender blind, and sexual orientation blind.
You don't judge someone until you truly know them. And even then, you're probably reluctant to judge.
You try to treat everyone equally. Everyone has a fair chance with you.
Good job - there's not a prejudiced bone in your body.

You Are A Blue Girl

Relationships and feelings are the most important things to you.
You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.
If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.
You try to heal the ones you love with your kind and open heart.
