    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 […]

    2022-04-19 Two-fer Tuesday…

    Recently I had the opportunity to spend a few days with Kate Gale. I wrote about this, of course, and you can read that here. Part of that experience was watching her reading in Lincoln and then participating in another reading and hearing her read the same poems in Omaha.  She’s touring to promote her […]

    2022-04-13 Who Cares?

    Today I’m raging about my missing iris plants and asking myself who the fuck in my life will actually care about how I feel about this or anything else. Really.  I’m upset that I haven’t written anything decent in months and who cares. I’m angry that I’m the only one in my household that pays […]

    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 […]

  • 2022-02-03 I Need to Write This

    When I say I need to write this, what I mean is that I need to try and work through my thoughts and feelings. I need to come to terms with what’s happened, document my perspective for posterity, and try to find some internal resolution and peace. That’s what this is.  Yesterday I had a […]

    2022-02-02 Let’s Do the Time Warp Again…

    Time warp? Where to?  How about oh-two, oh-two, two-oh, two-oh? It’s not too far. Only two years away.  Only two years away? You don’t say!  Yes, Two years from this day was the day little Miss SugarCookie finally got her way.  Which makes today… her two year anniversary!!  That’s right people. I’m celebrating my 2 […]

    2022-01-28 Giving Birth is Hard Work, Especially When You’re Distracted

    I’m pushing hard to get that next “baby” of an issue for my lit mag out into the wide world. This one has a big head. It’s what’s on my mind and I keep getting distracted by the rest of life.  My husband is off work today which started at 6:30 am with a work […]

    2022-01-21 What’s Done is Done

    Two days ago I was writing about my uncle in the hospital and today my dad had to make the tough decision to pull the intubation tube out of him, presumably the only thing keeping him alive. His body just could not take all the trauma of surgery and apparently he’s suffered many tiny strokes […]

    2022-01-20 Waiting.. and More Waiting + Thinking About Death

    A week ago my uncle was taken by ambulance to a hospital in CB. Same day he was transferred to a hospital in Omaha and prepped for surgery for a subdural hematoma—bleeding around his brain.  Now it’s a week later and he’s awake but has been unresponsive. Still intubated, as I understand it and my […]

    2022-01-10 Another Year in the Rearview

    And what a year it was! Am I right??!!  Sometimes when I’m on vacation and I have extra time, I elect to write about how it’s going. If I have a lot of extra time, there are pictures. That’s lovely to revisit later, but who has that kind of time?  I’m usually more about the […]
