Henry, Pedicures, Medical Marijuana Update Number 31,276,459 and the Full Moon



That's my beautiful boy, getting ready to jump down and pick up the screen that fell out of the window. He came home early from school today, and I can't even begin to tell you how E A S Y it is to hang out with him.

I did some hard-core cleaning today -- mainly in the boys' bedroom. They have an incredible amount of stuff -- let's be honest and call it shit -- piled in every nook and corner, so I got a big box and literally swept it off the shelves and into the box. I'm going to tell them to go through the box and only remove the things that they really, really value. Something tells me that most of it will appear, again, on the shelves or in the drawers or under the bed, but at least, now for one day, the room is pristine.

I also walked around the corner and got a pedicure. I splurged and did the hot stone treatment, and while my legs and feet were being massaged with hot black rocks, a woman called me and we talked for the rest of the time about medical marijuana, about CBD butter and tinctures and how it's helping her son and how everything, everything is moving toward it. We're going to meet next week, and she's going to let me try what she has been using for her eight year old son quite successfully.

The universe is abundant.

The Pediatric Cannabis Therapy of California Facebook group has a whole thread of comments about the upcoming full moon, Santa Ana winds and increased seizures in our kids.

The universe is strange.

I might be insane, but as I told a friend, I'm calmly insane.

The universe is constantly trickling through my fingers, and I can't hold onto it which is probably just right.

  1. Of course, OF COURSE, the possibility of the treatment for Sophie is of the utmost importance but can I just say I'm also really glad you got to get a pedicure?

  3. I love this. It is perfect. Of course you are right, there is abundance and strangeness and constant motion. I feel this in my own life. Really, REALLY Sophie gets to try the CBD? Wonderful.

  4. There are so many aspects of legalizing this plant. Just last week I ran into someone who had started using a hemp tincture on her psoriasis. She had been suffering for years. Someone gave her a non-legal cream that was made by a friend. Her psoriasis was dramatically improved within a week. Of course the pharmaceutical companies don't want her using it. They would be losing money on their own secret formula with terrible side-effects that doesn't actually work.

  7. I read in a good book today something about thinking you're crazy means you're not crazy. Not thinking you're crazy means you probably are. That sounds about right to me.

  11. Love, love, love. Kids who are easy to hang out with are the bomb! I wonder what the massage/nail tech was thinking as she listened to you talk on the phone about CBD butter ;-).
