Okay, people. I need you to take this viral, and fast.

We know someone in upstate New York who needs a good custody lawyer ASAP. I'm not at liberty to go into details publicly, but this woman is very afraid that her abusive boyfriend is going to get sole custody of her young child.  She's presently being represented by a court-assigned lawyer who doesn't seem to care about the case, and she has very few resources left at this point. Her next hearing is on Thursday.

If you know a good lawyer in New York State who might be willing to take this case for a low fee or pro bono, or at least offer her advice or support, please let me know. If you don't know anyone, please repost this far and wide. As a mother and an abuse survivor, it makes me absolutely sick to my stomach to contemplate a child being left in the hands of an abuser.

I can be reached at if you have any leads or want to help.

The internet can work miracles. Let's go.

Edit, Tuesday afternoon: Huge, huge thanks to everyone who has signal-boosted, offered resources, emailed me, and otherwise been willing to help. Our friend is overwhelmed by the kindness of strangers. Amy and I are driving over to New York tomorrow afternoon so we can provide support in person, and we are working on plans to help our friend and her daughter get back on their feet once the custody case is over.

(If you would be interested in donating an item or service to a fundraising auction in the near future, please let me know. Our friend is a talented artist and a wonderful mother to a beautiful little girl who deserves a safe home, and it wouldn't take much to make a huge difference in their lives.)

Gained .2 (two tenths) of a pound this week. I ain't worried about it, really...a little frustrated, but weight loss is like that. I ate "okay" this week. I stayed within my points, but didn't eat nearly the fresh veggies I've been eating, other weeks. Why? Laziness. Pure and simple. I didn't drink alcohol, didn't eat anything out-of-the-way, like cake or goodies.

It just goes like that...sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and sometimes you break even. *shrug* I'll add in more veggies this week...because I like them, and they help round out meals.

Oh crap...I go to Kansas City this week...doesn't mean I'll eat HORRIBLY, but it does mean that I'll be not-eating-at-home...and not-cooking. That's always perilous. I'll do the best I can.

I will.

First wave of housekeeping done...I don't think that I removed anyone who reads me, anyway, but if I did, and you wish to continue reading, please pipe up, and I'll add you back. I just removed people who don't post, or who don't ever comment. Now, I might have screwed up, so do let me know if this is the case. I'll leave this unlocked for a few days, then it'll go under wraps.

I also did some revamping of filters...some stuff that I write about, I want your opinions on. If I don't ever get 'em, I figure that you really don't want to there ya go. Not *trying* to be passive aggressive...just doing a little 'splainin'.

I *am* singing in the Messiah. I got my score this morning. I'm pretty excited.

Presently it's after 4 a.m. and I'm just restless in my mind. I'm listening to "Paint Me A Birmingham" by The Wild West Band. Damn...makes me bawl every time...

Anyway...that's my big news for right now.

Went to FATV to check out the Stratton Players "The First Reading" television show, tonight. I kinda liked it. Will probably do it again if I can figure out how often they do it.

Sorta had a rug yanked out from under me, last night...but like the ragged old bitch I am, I'm just trudgin' forward. Fuck it...
