Now I'm both.
And that's just fine with me.

PROMPTuesday #179: The Senses

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

PROMPTuesday is a weekly creative writing prompt from San Diego Momma blog.

The Lull Re-Post

Monday, January 30th, 2012

As for all of you, I’ve been busy to capacity. And so I thought today to publish a post I’d already written, just to show up and say hi. Which is when I found this from a few years ago. I think it works.       I’m currently lazing in bed, sick tissue at […]

The Dimwitted Adventures of a Dope

Friday, January 20th, 2012

You know how you might have a super intelligent friend who is book smart, but a little dim when it comes to stuff like life?   For instance, one of my dear friends, an attorney, is very smart and savvy. He wins every case. I would turn to him any day for legal advice.   […]

PROMPTuesday #178: Hair Atrocity

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Something befuddling happens to me every five years that I’m hard put to explain. I get a most strange tingling in my hair follicles and am compelled to cut everything off my head. In other words, I go short. And every single solitary time, I hate it, and every time I forget I hate it […]

The Bubble

Monday, January 16th, 2012

My girls chitter chatter in front of me as we walk to school in a jagged tangle of excitement. Hopping, running in stops and starts, both of them planning to be in line exactly when the bell rings at 8:55. I shuffle behind, waving to parents I know from the street, or the park, or […]

Annoying Social Media Types

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

  (The above is a vent. As is the below.)   Guess what time of the month it is?   That’s right!   Pretty Much Snarky time!   That special block of days on the calendar where I say what’s on my mind and regret it in a week!   So, let’s get started with […]

PROMPTuesday #177: Finding Your Bliss

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

(Photo from here)   I absolutely know I’ve posted different flavors of this PROMPT over the years, but I’m revisiting it now. Becoming who I’m meant to be is way on my mind these days because I’ve been fuzzy and auto-piloty for awhile. Like forever. I just did stuff. I let life lead me mostly, […]

The 2011 Favorites: Book, Album, MORE!

Friday, January 6th, 2012

I hope you’ll check out some of the great recommendations from this week’s PROMPTuesday. There were several new-to-me book and song suggestions that rocked my boat, not to mention the inclusion of 2011’s inspiring lessons and 2012’s roads ahead for so many of you. Meanwhile, I played my own PROMPT game and answered the below […]

PROMPTuesday #176: The Recap

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

I came across this 2011 recap yesterday and just dug it to kingdom come. I love the idea of cataloguing the year’s bests in one place (especially when there’s fashion involved), and decided it’d be something I’d like to do myself.   So for neatness sake (you know what my good friend told me yesterday? […]

The Gift

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

For Christmas, my dad gifted me with a beautiful silver box, sealed, personalized, and full of my mother’s ashes. Each of us children received such a present and the unexpected feeling of holding something so precious and real, but uncomfortable all at the same time. I know my feelings about the soul, and how I […]
