Just my humble opinion

Nobody will read this, most likely just a few family or friends.  Google "dylan farrows open letter" to figure out what I'm rambling about.

I remember the entire Mia Farrow vs. Woody Allen saga that went down.  Partially because I am a "People" magazine reader and mostly because at the time my husband (not my husband now) had been accused of molesting his prior step daughter.  Another long story for a different post, that may or may not get me sued...what the hell.

Here's my thoughts in summary:

Woody Allen: most likely not a classic pedophile because if he was there would be more than one little girl coming forward, at least you would think so.

Mia Farrow: yes of course she was pissed when they broke up, he took up with her adopted child, but most likely didn't plant the whole abuse idea because if she was out to destroy the man, she has other daughters she could have included in the complaint.

What I think:  Woody is a arteest...yes I'm being facetious.  With wealth and fame come invincibility.   Something that happened in that attic room frightened that little girl.  Whatever it was has stuck with her for years.  Why did she just now right the open letter?  Easy...she finally has felt comfortable enough to say what she feels.

Should we believe her without a doubt..no, but it's not my place to plant guilt or doubt.  What is fair is that Dylan Farrow has written a letter, knowing that it  would bring attention to her claim.  She isn't asking for money, she's asking for people to recognize that the person who makes films we enjoy maybe has done something that was terrible and harmful.  

My opinion is that at the very least the world should give as much credence to what Dylan has to say, as to what Woody has to say.  You can decide which rings a louder bell of truth.

I was gone but now I am here

I had to set my blog aside while I finished my degree and adjusted to new challenges at work.  I moved into a management position in 2016 and also decided to further my education.

While I can say that I am happy I did it, I can also say I am happy it is done.  My college education has always been done while working full time.  The majority of my schooling has been funded by employer provided educational assistance.  While that is a gift I am grateful for, it did not pay for all and it required me to work full time and school 3/4 time.

Working and going to school was much easier in the 20's than now in my 40's.  All of a sudden I feel my age creeping into my life like mold.  I know it is partly because while pursuing this most recent educational goal I also had major knee surgery, leaving me in a wheel chair for six weeks.  I felt the consequences of my age in fatigue from working and studying but also in the comparison between recovering from a hysterectomy in my 30's qu…

Hello, Hello is anybody there?

Wow it doesn’t seem like it’s been September since I uploaded something to my blog.  I write all the time, and I think of uploading but I guess I forget the last part.  Last summer started smoothly, or as smoothly as it can be when you are remodeling your home.  Most of the labor was done by Riddick.  I’m the planner, accountant and sandwich maker. It was a huge job replacing flooring, windows, doors, siding and painting.  I’m grateful for Riddick but I’m even more grateful that we are done.
The end of summer wasn’t nearly as smooth and definitely wasn’t planned.  Late August my step-son Ironman decided to move in with us and finish his senior year.  Without going into gory detail that combination of having my in-laws (whom I adore) and my 18 year old red headed step child (yes he really is) was beautiful chaos.  I don’t know how we all did it, but we did. 
As Mama and Papa ventured south in the fall and Ironman started school there was a peaceful lull where it was just the 3 of us in …
