    2022-08-11 Denver Road Trip Day 1: Ogallala and Winning the Lottery

    Today I’m waking up in Ogallala, Nebraska. Mostly because I’ve gotten to that point in my life that I can no longer stand to drive the 8 hours it takes to get to Denver from Omaha in one shot. Does that make me old?  Probably.  Normally when I write about my travels, I start on […]

    2021-08-18 Mood Math

    It’s been another week. Another 7 days since I’ve put two sentences together on a page, virtual or otherwise. Maybe this is the new me, the new Miss SugarCookie who posts once a week instead of once a day. If I was doing that, I’d want to make sure each week is one heck of […]

    2021-08-11 Happy Birthday Erika 🎂

    Days like today I think about all the memories I’ve made with friends who are not in my life anymore. A baseball game I went to for a new friend’s birthday when I was 12 where we laughed so hard (at what I don’t recall) we cried. Years of pre-Christmas baking sessions and ornament exchanges. […]

    2021-05-17 Back in the Game… ✍🏻💕✍🏻✍🏻

    Last year I went on a submission spree, submitting my poetry to all levels and types of publishers, from the very brand new organizations to the big-name long shots—print, online, anthology, full manuscript, chapbook, daily, monthly, quarterly journals and reviews. I think I maxed out at 80-something open submissions sometime in November or December. Oh, […]

    2021-03-30 Woe is the Melancholy Way

    Today is the first day in 3 weeks I haven’t had to either go to the ER, the hospital, or my moms house. My sister is driving from Denver as I type this and I feel a weight lifting.  Last night everyone at my house was otherwise occupied doing their own thing and I took […]

    2021-03-23 Radom Rant Tuesday 😒

    What’s that saying again?..  If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.  Yeah. That.  In my own head I’m bitchy and constantly venting about all irritations, big and small. It’s everything and everyone and I’m not sure what I have to do to get myself out of this mood. Make […]

    2021-03-15 This Room With a View is Not Helping My Mood

    No walking on the treadmill for me today… I’m out of my element and typing on my laptop from a hospital room while my mom tries to take a nap. Though, I think sleep in this place is rare because of all the people coming and going. I’ve been here a few hours now and […]

    2021-02-24 Some Days Just Need to Be Forgotten

    Yesterday was a doozie. I’m not sure what exactly what it was besides a series of random, unrelated events but it was a miracle nobody was murdered. Scratch that. I know exactly what it was that started it.. the incident with the trash cans. After that, there’s not a thing that could happen to fix […]

    2020-12-15 Smile and Wave

    Apparently that all I have to offer today. I woke up feeling pretty good and motivated to get lots of stuff done. I spent too much time yesterday being angry or sad and felt as though the 3+ hours I spent in CB were just hours that I could otherwise have been productive. I’m over […]

    2020-07-02 Between last night and today 🌙 … ☀️

    Last night, as I neared the end of my day, my brain was full of all kinds of things to say. I felt happy and satisfied and looking forward to today and this holiday weekend and the rest of this summer. I should have gotten out my notebook and put pen to paper. I should […]
