If anyone was counting, or paying attention, I know I said I would start posting daily, and I have not. I realize this. I am writing this to let you know that my lack of posting doesn’t mean I am not working on a post. It is just that I am putting in more effort … Continue reading Just gimme a minute.
So far I have written two different versions of this blog post. In one I am optimistic. I explain what I have been up to these last five months and my sincere desire to begin daily posts again. Then there is the other version. This second version is darker. I tell you how nothing has … Continue reading Third Times the Charm?
I have had a set goal for myself to get the blog posted and 250 fiction words written every day. The thing is, I keep pushing them off until to the last minute. Frequently I am writing after the kids are home from school or even right before I go to bed. And, I confess, … Continue reading Plan Ahead
I am gearing up for the chaos that will be the next two weeks. Wish me luck. I will try to keep up with daily posting but I doubt I will be very introspective until after new years. On a different note, the boys had a tough day a school so when they came home … Continue reading Getting Ready For The Holidays

But hey, I didn't spend the day in bed! Either today or yesterday. So there is … Continue reading And Now the Wrapping
So. Many. People. I survived. We have a tree. We have new electronics. We have toys and cards and wrapping paper and more toys and batteries and... crap, I forgot tape. It is late Saturday night as I write this. I only just realized I hadn't written a post yet today. So here is my … Continue reading Christmas Shopping
I am grateful for this bed I am in I am grateful for these blankets I am under I am grateful for the heat that is running through this house keeping me warm I am grateful for the coffee in my cup I am grateful for the silence that surrounds me I am grateful for … Continue reading Gratitude
I went to see Joker again today… Alone… In the middle of the day. And it got me thinking. I really gravitate to movies like this. Movies about the torn apart pieces of a person gathering strength and winning over the well put together pieces of society. Sort of anti-hero movies. And it got me … Continue reading Acceptance
Here is the thing; today I don’t want to write about how I am feeling. I want to write something positive. I want to write about something hopeful. I could tell you about my kids. Yesterday we went to the pool and they both passed the swim test for the first time. They are now … Continue reading Finding Something Good In All This Mess
