From July to the middle of October, there were days that I felt pretty good about my life and where it was going. I had great friends and family who were constantly there for me, my oldest son and daughter-in-law were expecting right around my birthday and I found out that I was going to be a grandmother for the second time this April, complements of son and daughter-in-law number two. Then, like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, my world was picked up, spun around and dropped into uncharted FEMA
territory. Only in my version of Oz, the movie was filmed in reverse-the color went out and everything changed to black and white-heavy on the black.
