  1. Jesse came home from school and yelled, "Mom, I got you something for your birthday!" He produced a very short stemmed daffodil from behind his back, smiled, and sheepishly said, "I stole it from the neighbor's yard." I pinned it on my blouse when we went out to eat tonight; it was the most beautiful daffodil. :)

  2. Wading through quagmire of divorce. Removing and distilling all down to focus upon what is most important and best for my son and me.

  3. 3 hours later... Why did I come in here tonight? I need to get my butt in bed!!!

  4. Wishing a happy new year for all!

    Imperative hiatus

    I very much apologize for my abrupt and continued absence from the forum these past months without notice or a word before now. It was necessary to take a break from Mantidforum and from my mantis hobby due to some extreme family issues, and I've just now logged in for the first time since March of this year (as I'm sure you who are interested have seen that I've been absent). A sincere thank you to those who have contacted (or tried to contact me) to see if all was OK. I'm still having ongoing issues with my family life; but I am taking my son and myself to counseling and trying to move forward in a positive direction. I've been so consumed these past months with these family problems (and also work for a large portion of that time) that I could barely deal with all on my plate, let alone the forum or my mantis hobby. My son is the most important thing in my life, and I could not let my focus be anywhere else. I'm laid off right now, so at least I'm not quite as stressed. I'm hoping now to be able to pop in from time to time. The last of my mantids, an L4/5 female Rhombodera sp., died at the end of October. It's been strange being completely mantidless now. And I miss them. I know I will not stay away from them forever; but for now I must content myself to visit the forum occasionally and work on resolving more important issues in my life. I've made and enjoyed so many wonderful friendships here. I want you all to know I do not take that for granted. Again, I sincerely apologize for not explaining my absence until now. Take care and best wishes to you, my friends, and your families in the new year. Though not in my former position of mantis keeping, I'm still here and will be around.... Becky
