My friend Amanda debuted her site’s video podcast series today. If you’re a soon-to-be- mom, have small kids or know someone who does, they’d love this first episode. And there’s more to come! Check it out!

I’d kinda hoped for a brief respite today. Oh sure, I needed to edit my reports, stick something in the crock pot, and do a cursory housecleaning, but I’d have loved to punctuate my day with a little mindless TV, perhaps some popcorn, even a nap. Each day fills with obligations and chores and I…Continue Reading
I walked down the aisle to this song, sung by a friend of mine (not the original artist) and I can’t believe I just found it after all these years. Really, I thought I’d never hear it again. i just couldn’t locate it anywhere. And the only place I’d ever hear it was if…Continue Reading
I hate when people take too long to continue a story. I refused to watch miniseries on network TV for that very reason. I could not stand to wait until the next day or week for a story to be completed. But hypocrite much? Nearly three weeks later and I’m finishing the Coretta story. (Not…Continue Reading
Wow. You PROMPTuesdayers are GOOD. I’m honored to have you participate. And if you haven’t read the submissions yet, take a minute to do so. You won’t be disappointed. p.s. My early morning wake-up plan was foiled by nighttime pee and cereal requests.
There’s so many things I want to tell you. Like, why I haven’t done this PROMPTuesday. (Answer: Because it’s too hard.) Or, why I’m sipping wine in the dark (Answer: because the kids can’t find me.). There’ s just many things I want to write. Things about labels and rituals and why both…Continue Reading
Happy Memorial Day! Hope it was a good one. I, for one, percolated over PROMPTuesday. This time, I wanted to do something unique, something block-busting, something random and ridiculous…and I feel confident that what I came up with will confuse and befuddle you. But that’s OK! Because confusion leads to creativity! You’ve read that somewhere,…Continue Reading
In a pink plastic car sits a child of two, singing for the extra assurance of her daddy’s hand as she steers down the boardwalk. Mom licks an ice cream cone, bending down to share when the girl looks up, with chocolate mouth and magicked eyes. A merrily painted bungalow sits behind a handmade…Continue Reading
This scared me. Can you imagine?
This meme comes direct from Matter of Fact Mommy, who made it up herself, and since I think it’s genius, I’m jumping on the bandwagon. So straight from Matter of Fact’s mouth, here is the meme: “I want to hear which specific post got you hooked on the blogs that you read regularly. You…Continue Reading
Also, the spooky atmospheric ’70s and ’80 thrillers, “Burnt Offerings” and “Still of the Night.” And then, there’s also “The Eye” (Japanese version) and “The Descent.” Please note that these are not horror (although “The Descent” has some gore), they’re just spooky. Whole different vibe. Not that you asked. No really,…Continue Reading
Thanks so much for helping raise my daughter right. Really, it’s comforting to know that not everyone believes in over-scheduling, and that random play and frolic are valuable and swimming is fundamental; T-ball optional. And so while I praised the heavens for wise sages such as yourself and for your generous sharing of the…Continue Reading
