    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 […]

    2021-01-18 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 […]

    2020-11-30 Bow for November

    My second full month in my new job is coming to a close. This morning I’m tasked with making breakfasts and lunches for my people and will of course get doing dishes and scooping litter boxes. And I’ll be working on the lit mag some. And hopefully finding time to read and write outside of […]

    2020-11-14 Doing the Math ➖➗➕

    Broke my streak yesterday. Worked on my workshop submission both fine tuning the lines and deciding which poems were worthy of such rare attention. It’s really a confidence game at this point.  I was tired and had an unusual day that went astray from my normal routine. With my dauber down, not a poem in […]

    2020-11-10 Freezing Rain, Memory, and Poetry

    A freezing rain greets me as I accompany the trash carts to the end of the driveway. It tears my attention away from what I don’t remember. It feels good to feel the rain on my skin and how it forces me to move faster, look forward to being back inside, strip down to dry. […]

    2020-10-30 All Hallows Eve Eve

    This morning I woke up at 4:45 AM from a dream about my recent ex-employer. The business had become a smashing success and they had just opened their brand new building which was a really neat New-tech high-rise situated among a neighborhood of 1 story buildings. A Sim city anomaly. There were appearances from two […]
