I’m going to start off this mornings blog post on a pretty light note because I’ve got a client, I’ve got a new coffee cup, a plate of cookies and the weather definitely feels like fall. For September, it’s exactly what I would expect and being out in the country, where the wide spaced trees… Continue reading Suicide Stigma
There are so many angles I could work with off of that simple statement - Parenting Hurts. It hurts when we watch our babies grow up, when we have arguments with them, then they headbutt us at night when jumping on their beds even after we told them NOT to. There are a lot of… Continue reading Parenting Hurts
I have decided two things after my endeavors this Friday night/Saturday morning. One…Mother Nature might be extremely against me having a social life. Two…I’m too damn stubborn and need to think a little more before saying “I got this!” So Friday night plans were in the works. In law’s were watching the girls overnight, hubs… Continue reading Mother Nature Might Hate Me a Little….
Ah, successful plotting. An art-form that eludes most writers on an inconsistent basis. No writer goes about plotting the same way. Some sit in bistros with a cup of java, people-watching and piecing story lines together. Some retreat to second homes kept merely for the purpose of providing that much needed escape to think about… Continue reading Successful Plotting for Writing Mothers:
I love to write about my children. Not just because I love them. But because some day...when they're older...and they're telling me I'm being unfair...I can send them the link to this and say "oh really? Let's talk about being fair for a minute." (Yeah, I know...wishful thinking.) Relatively certain after last night's antics, my youngest… Continue reading The Night that Killed My Mood
It’s 12:17am on a Tuesday morning. I should be in bed. I should be snoozing away peacefully in preparation for the day ahead of me, ready to work, ready to hit the grindstone and earn that money that my family is always scraping by on.Instead, I’m too paranoid to sleep…because the propane is out. Again.… Continue reading A Bit of a Necessary Pity Party…because I want to sleep but can’t.
Well, as much as I was gung-ho about maintaining a blog early on in 2013...I think we can all agree that I pretty much failed to keep it as updated as I said it was going to be. So, with a new year and new goals set, I start up this blog again in attempts… Continue reading Hello 2014
If you're like me...then there will come a time in your life when you decide that things need to change. Usually these realizations come when you've let yourself go and lack motivation to do much of anything. When days become a monotonous blur of minimal schedules that go a little something like this: Hit snooze… Continue reading Giving Healthy Another Chance
That title is in honor of my friend Catey Henderson who uses it when things are about to get serious. And friends, things are about to get serious. I think the fanfiction bug has run its course...for now anyway. I'm sure it will come back again. In the past it's gone on hiatus simply because… Continue reading Get your towels…
Well, it’s been a while since I last blogged. But I’ve been busy…adapting. That’s the only way I can really think to put it. Whenever it comes to moments like this, I always feel like the obscure thing would be to quote Webster’s Dictionary and give the full definition of the word adapt. Or,… Continue reading Adapting
