    2022-12-03 New Leaf #2 🍂

    Leaf number 2: Personal Poetic Pursuits 🍂 I put a great deal of time and mental energy into TGLR. My little literary passion project that’s neither little nor just mine. Our team now has over 20 people and the whole organization, process, and published journal rely on me to hold up my end of the […]

    2022-04-26 Being the Boss of Me…

    When I used to have a career, I always subscribed to this notion when approaching management with an issue: Don’t show up empty handed. Show up with potential solutions or at the very least something helpful or positive to counterbalance any bad news or problems. Now that I’ve dumped my career, I still think this […]

    2022-03-23 One Blog Post to Rule Them All…

    Spoiler alert: This will be my last post for the foreseeable future. And it is a long one.   A lot has happened in my life these past 5 years and much of it has been captured in the virtual pages of this space. I created this blog in 2017 when I was literally on the […]

    2021-11-17 Hello Austin.. Ohhh, How I’ve Missed You

    If I would have posted what I wrote yesterday, the title might have been “Miss SugarCookie is On the Move Again” or “Austin Adventure Day 0” or maybe “Seven Reminders Why I Hate Air Travel” but I only wrote a handful of sentence that had nothing to do with traveling or my trip and then […]

    2021-11-08 Just Another Lustless Monday…

    Welcome to Monday. This morning while my husband was eating the breakfast I cooked him, he asked what my plans were for the day. Just a casual question that might start a conversation if I had some unexpected answer or something I was planning that I’d forgotten to mention previously. I don’t. It’s Monday so […]

    2021-03-01 Welcome to New Beginnings…

    Where was I at again? A new week? A new month? A fresh start? Oh yeah.. that.  So far so good and pretty soon now both my kids will be home and all will be right with the world again.  It was 2:45PM before I looked at what I was supposed to do today according […]

    2021-02-04 A Good Day to Start (Again)

    The update to yesterday’s “to be continued” question was answered last night at 9pm after 4 hours of discussion about the GLR lit mag (and after not having eaten a meal all day).  In short, I didn’t care what it was.. I had to eat and ASAP so those left-over enchiladas were the best option. […]

    2021-01-18 Happy Blog-A-Versary!! 💃💃🎉

    2017-01-15 –> Now. Four years (+ a few days).. Yo!.. That’s a good freaking run!!  (Spoiler Alert, this recap could get long. If stats are your thing and you want to skip the drunk trainwreck intro, scroll to the end, but don’t forget to click “like” before you leave. 😉) In January 2017 I decided […]
