Trading In My Cape (for an apron)

Day 27 of the All About Me Challenge: Worst Habits. Oh, Lord, this could be a long post. I've been thinking about this most of the day, and it could be quite easy to list quite a few things; too much sugar, too little water, trading sleep for piddling on the computer, not exercising enough, […]

Perpetual Wanderlust

I've been thinking of the Day 14 prompt for far too long. Not because it's tough, but because I can't narrow it down. The question 'where is somewhere you'd like to travel?' is much easier to answer if I list the places I don't want to travel. I'm not obsessive about it (I think of […]

Angels and Demons….or Catching Up with Day 13

I should know better. I get all excited when I find blog challenges and vow that I'm going to follow through. I rationalize that if someone is giving me a prompt, it will only take a few minutes to post something thoughtful. You would think, wouldn't you, that after 41 years I'd have figured myself […]

Day 10 All About Me: Photos Then & Now

This prompt is a fun one, and the timing is perfect. As I was flipping through old photos earlier this week, daydreaming about actually having time to put them in albums for the kids (true confession: Nicholas is 10 and he has no scrapbooks. None. Adam is 15 and I think I've done up to […]

It’s not the ‘things’ in life….

Day 9 of the All About Me Challenge. Prompt: Something that makes my life easier.  It would be natural to say something like my iPhone, my car, my computer or even my TV. And don't get me wrong, I appreciate each and every one of those things. But I'm reminded quite often these days, as […]

Things I Hate

So, I'm a slacker. Day 8 of 30 Days About Me and I think this is only my 4th post. I've never been much of a 50% girl, but life takes precedence, right? So, today I'm climbing back on the wagon with today's prompt: Something I Hate. True confession: I try to not use the […]

One of my first loves….

Today's 30 Days About Me prompt brings up fond memories mixed with regret. And, I'll admit, a little bit of longing.  I grew up in a home where reading was the #1 way to spend time. I devoured books like other kids soak up video games, fell in love with Laura Ingalls Wilder and a […]

It’s Movie Time

Day 2 of 30 Days About Me is almost as hard as Day 1, but instead of trying to focus on one song we're asked to choose our favorite movie. Ever. Yeah, I doubt anyone can do that. But, I can reconcile posting just one here today because, really, this man deserves his own post. […]

More Music: My Indecisive Self

Twitter is a wonderful thing, isn't it? I stumbled across an RT that referenced a 30 Day Challenge hosted by Toni, and thought it might be a great way to get me back into the (almost) daily practice of blogging. So even though my One Little Word post had to do with a soundtrack of […]
