             “You get all pretty for me kid?”
            “Mathew you are always trying to flatter yourself.  I got pretty for me,” I said pushing his shoulder.
            “Never gave me a thought, did you?”
            “Nope,” I answered, with us both knowing I was lying.
            The sand was warm under our feet.  I felt giddy being with him

Andy Williams

Andy Williams died and that makes me sad.  I have so many memories of his Christmas show.  As a family those were nights we got the joy of setting up TV trays in our downstairs family room and watching it.  We didn't get to eat in front of the TV very often, so it was a special event.  It was such a family show and I loved his singing.  It makes me think of my own mortality, and that what we do in life matters, how happy we live, and what we do with our time while we're here.  In remembering my family moments it also reinforces how important family time is and that taking the time to make memories is important.

Restless night

I fell asleep before he shut off his light.  I had a restless night, tossing and turning.  When I woke early in the morning I noticed he was in between the bedspread and the sheets, still in his sweats.  I guess he really was afraid I might rape him.  I got out of bed and filled the coffee pot in the room, banging around intentionally.--Lisa Loomis (Casanova Cowboy--a novel) Available on Amazon

No one in her house ate a real breakfast anymore, it needed to be something they could grab flying out the door.  Even on weekends no one seemed to care if she cooked, so she stopped.  When did real life smash the image, how she envisioned a husband, children, a family?--Lisa Loomis (Gem Rats--a novel)

All in

When I hung up I turned on the fireplace and dimmed the lights.  I thought about how almost giddy mom had been.  She loved Ryan, had from the minute she met him.  Obviously she saw something back then, I hadn’t seen until recently.  I loved him, I knew that now, and it scared the hell out of me.  I knew that when I fell in love, I loved hard, I loved completely, and I expected the same in return.  So far that hadn’t been the case in my relationships, and I wondered if Ryan could be all in.  From what I knew about his history with women, I had my doubts.--Lisa Loomis (Casanova Cowboy--a novel)

Once over

Mathew looked up, realized who it was, and gave me the once over.  Ok, don’t start that shit already.  Feeling self conscious I crossed my arms in front of my chest which made him smile.  I could feel my temperature rise.--Lisa Loomis (Boy in a Band--a novel)
