    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 […]

    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 […]

    2021-02-05 Where’s Monday When You Need It?

    After having slept for only 4 hours the previous night, I could not stay awake past 9pm last night. My sleep was unfortunately once again riddled with tossing and turning and congestion. At 4:30 this AM I gave up and got up (again). Sound familiar? Despite that nonsense, I was in good spirits and looking […]

    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 […]

    2020-11-14 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. […]

    2020-10-03 Thanks for the Reminder

    It’s been a wild week. Lots of drama with the end of my time as an employee (at long last) and finally getting to pull the trigger on the first issue of The Good Life Review. It took till about 6PM yesterday before I entered into that corpse pose phase I’ve been talking about for […]

    2020-09-21 What’s the Truth Behind All the Drama

    Last night I had a dream I could not shake. I mean.. I dreamt the dream and woke up multiple times and then fell back to sleep into the same scenario twice. I’ve got a big assignment due for school. Something that’s going to take months of work and I’ve shown up to the scene […]
