just gives you an unexpected curve ball.
a kick in the ass.
a slap in the face.
life was good...
it takes you by the
and tries to rip it out.
saturday morning i had an appointment.
15 minutes before i had to leave, travis noticed buzzards roosting in a tree out by the road.
sorry, it's a little on the dark side...looking into sun...
we wandered down the driveway to see what they were guarding.
a dead deer. road kill.
don't worry...no picture of that very sad sight.
the vultures had already begun their feasting.
then travis pointed out a Red-shouldered hawk.
not a cloud in the sky!!
when i left my client's house...travis had left me a text.
"30 min after u left buzzards cleaned deer i dragged it in yard so you'll have bones"
when i got back home we buried it...out back, with the little mole & squirrel.
have i mentioned in previous posts that travis has been in trouble before?
he was court ordered TWICE to a residential Rehab facility.
over one year each time.
he has a record. a felony.
oh, but that's not all. a couple of misdemeanors too.
i REALLY thought things were going good.
i thought HE was doing good.
monday i had a voice mail from the arresting officer.
petit theft. travis was on his way to jail.
OH, but that's not all!
the officer told me that while he was running travis' name...
a warrant popped up!!
for petit theft in another county.
farther south. where i picked him up when he said he wanted to come up here.
here i sit.
but not really.
disappointed (in travis)...yes.
i don't want to go on and on about this.
my troubles. my sadness.
my fractured heart...
with each of his
but i needed to say the words.
and i needed to give (you) an update on travis.
on a HAPPIER note...
over the past couple of weeks
i've been decorating a couple of deer skulls...
ONE is finished & i have already added it to my 'etsy' shop.
(pressed flowers, cicada & butterfly wings, art pen & acrylic paint)
this next skull is somewhat of a FIRST.
i used the skull as my canvas.
or course, a swirly moon. with a little glitter.
hmmmmm. what do you think?
as a mother...all this travis stuff tears my heart apart.
again & again. over & over.
as a mother...i can't help feeling
like a failure.
i can only hope that
have a happy rest of the week...
stay cool & be safe.
"I've never had a problem with drugs. I've had problems with the police."
(sounds like something travis might say)
