    2021-12-26 The Christmas Unwrap 🎄🌟🎁

    Hello Friends. It’s been a strange holiday indeed. Where to begin? Where to begin? How about everything that feels normal? Both of my kids have been home since last Monday, almost a week and that, in and of itself, is comforting. Even if they are independent and don’t really need me anymore, it is nice […]

    2021-12-11 Hunting for Gratitude

    That’s it. I’ve officially lost my mojo. I’ve attended three generative writing events this week and have failed in a big way to write anything (new). Everything is a rehash of something I’ve already written or just plain garbage nonsense. And I think I’m just going to give up trying and see what that life […]

    2021-11-25 Happy Turkey Day Y’all!! 🧡🍗🥓🥧🥔🥐🥦🌽🧡

    Yes.. it’s THAT day again and I’m feeling pretty good. Let’s agree to set aside the sketchy origin of this holiday and instead focus on gratitude, spending quality time with people (hopefully), and…. FOOD!!  One meager year ago we were in isolation. No meetups or visits with friends and family and for sure no big […]

    2021-10-14 Being Busy has its Advantages

    What’s on my mind today? My children flying to Washington by themselves (with each other) and the whole thing is outside my control. Yes, they will be with their dad for the duration of their trip, but he and his significant other flew yesterday.  Despite my daughter sometimes being needy, she’s definitely independent and very […]

    2021-10-02 A Fresh Start for Fall 🍁

    A new month has been born and with it we enjoy the most ironic season of all; when juxtaposition reigns supreme.  The weather gets cooler yet we become cozy and warm as we gather around fires, sip hot drinks, and swap our summer wardrobes with sweaters, boots, and hats. It’s the season where the nights […]

    2021-09-29 An Epic Rant from a Terrible Daughter…

    You know that saying?.. How does it go?..  “If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”  It’s something like that.  Well… fuck that saying. There is absolutely nothing good I have to say about this situation with my mother but I’m done being the good daughter. At least here in […]

    2021-09-25 Happy FIVE-OHHH Bro! 🎉🚀🌕

    Today I’m walking to try and rid myself of a headache that was probably induced by too much to drink at dinner last night. Some cocktail with a clever name I can’t recall. I suppose if it was really clever I’d remember it. 🤷‍♀️ After two of those I switched to amaretto sours which have […]

    2021-09-18 Just Another Typical Saturday with a Side of Health Updates

    Today is Saturday and I’m walking on the treadmill while things are still peaceful here in the castle. It’s going to be a busy day.  I’ve got a poetry workshop I’m looking forward to attending that starts at 10am and after that my son is having a group of friends over to the house for […]
