Will be Getting Back

Will be Getting Back

Hi all, sorry for the long time between posts. I’m battling a health issue that has me taking so many antibiotics, I’m nauseous all the time. Two weeks of 8 pills a day! But in the end, years of problems will be solved, so it’ll be worth it. So, I’ll be back soon with an […]

10 Pet Peeves– Feeling Very Snarky– Rant Alert

1. Religious Intolerance – this world is a great, big, beautiful place full of culture and diversity. Accept that. Your way is just that. Yours. And remember, every religion teaches that “it is the only one.” In fact, my incredibly smart daughter asked me this question, ” How come some people think they have a […]

New Year’s

New Year’s

Had a great time with family this New Year’s Eve. We sang Karaoke– badly. Very badly. But it was a blast to hear all those old songs from the seventies and mostly eighties. And thank goodness we were inside my home and not out in public! Some of our tunes? 80s: Like a Virgin Beat […]

Juiced

Juiced

So, today I’m sitting in Barnes and Noble, writing in this cute little 1.99 notebook I’d just bought along with what looks like three really good books. I’m not reading them — I’m writing.

This Holiday Crap — Feeling Snarky!

Why the heck are we arguing over what to say this holiday season????? If you want to say Merry Christmas, go ahead. I love Christmas. I have a Christmas tree in my home. But also, don’t pick on people who prefer Happy Holidays. Truthfully, I prefer that one because for me, this season is about […]

Dirty Santa Outlaw Style

Dirty Santa Outlaw Style

Well, when I agreed to take on my RWA chapter Christmas party in my home, little did I know that a bloodthirsty book frenzy would change this friendly group into backstabbing thieves. My friend, Betty Sanders, who had number 11 in our Dirty Santa game, drew first blood. She stole and after that, everyone kept […]

A Little Behind

A Little Behind

Sorry for the lack of updated posts. My computer kept crashing and when I added up the time I spent every single day repairing it before I could write or get on the Internet, I realized I could have rivaled Nora for top billing by now. So, I got up the courage and bought a […]

Anger Writing

Anger Writing

I have The Writer’s Idea Book by Jack Heffron and in one chapter, “Don’t Get Me Started,” he gives prompts for anger writing. Yeah! Get it out on paper, I say! One of the prompts was to write a list of anger sparkers or pet peeves, then freewrite about one or more of them. I […]

It’s All About the Music Today!

Today, I’m working on the house and playing some of my fave CDs. I have one of those nifty speaker systems that is built into every room so I can listen anywhere. It’s up loud. Yeah. You will come to find upon further visits to my blog, that my taste in music is all over […]
