    2022-05-17 Just One Thing, But a Big One…

    How can it possibly be Tuesday again already? The past week has flown by and I can’t help but hope that time can slow down a little this week because, as of yesterday, I’m officially on Staycation. Jim and his boys left for vacation yesterday and so it is just me and my two peeps […]

  • 2022-07-10 Terrible Tirade Tuesday…

    2022-07-10 Terrible Tirade Tuesday…

    A few days ago I posted about being overwhelmed with stuff going on. I feel literally paralyzed by not being able to process that list of stuff and the fact that so much is out of my control.. it’s making me furious.  If I can move just one thing from that list out of my […]

    2022-05-08 A Million Little Things…

    Lately I’ve been wasting time watching more shows than I normally do. When I say “normally” I mean that normally I don’t watch shows at all unless Jim and I are sitting down for a chill hour of TV in the evening. And when I say “lately” I suppose I mean for the past nine […]

    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 […]

    2022-03-13 So Much Next Level Going On

    It’s been another hot minute, you know I know. But I’ve been attending to other duties as assigned and this week it was all about hanging out with the founder and managing editor of Red Hen Press and the LA Review. It was/is a big deal and personally a fantastic experience.  What an opportunity to […]

    2021-09-05 Working through Control Issues

    This morning I’m thinking about control. I’m thinking about how to truly let go of something I have no control over and more than that questioning why I let something I know is out of my control dig at my insides.  My day yesterday was consumed with taking a car in for an audio upgrade, […]

    2021-07-16 This Blog Post is Not About Toads 🐸🐸🐸

    Jim and his boys brought back about 12 toads from their adventure at Two Rivers State Park and we released them in the stream behind our house. I feel a little bad for displacing them from their original natural habitat but feel confident they can thrive here too. Lots of cool places to burrow and […]

    2021-06-26 After the Storm there is Calm

    I’ve once again navigated the sea of emotions my monthly cycle often laps over me in waves. Gritting my teeth through the frustration of the daily grind, the longing for peace and stillness, and anger when little pricks press into my skin like poorly executed acupuncture.  My mantra? “Wait a few days and see what […]

    2021-04-11 Exhale and Release

    Yesterday was a doozie. Hold up. This whole week has been kind of off the rails. I’m trying. I really am. And I’m truly doing the best I can.  Yesterday the stress of the lit mag going live (and frankly being over a week behind the original release schedule) got to me and by the […]

    2021-02-26 Dealing With Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Clyde

    I’ve been awake since before 3am. What time I don’t know because I’ve been told looking at the clock is waking up my brain. Ok. So the first time I looked at the clock was about 3:15am. It’s not the light of the clock waking up my brain. I’m pretty sure my brain does that […]
