Best ‘what the heck am I gonna make for dinner’ chicken

Yeah, I never have those nights either–the ones where dinner is not planned but everyone is hungry and just can’t wait to eat. So tonight, I figured ‘what the heck…..if they’re so hungry, they’ll eat whatever I come up with.’ And to the cupboards we went (not much grocery shopping around here lately). Can I […]

And just like that…..

I am reminded that there are others who REALLY are suffering from terrible circumstances….and while I might throw a pity party, my circumstances are within my means to change. I am reminded that this, too, shall pass. I am reminded that this world is full of goodness and opportunity, if I’ll only allow myself to […]

Blah, blah, blah

Bleck. That about sums it up. So I had this whole post written, a ‘brain dump’ of sorts of everything jumping around up there making me feel scattered and unproductive and, let’s face it, ineffective. Deleted it all. Rewrote. Deleted again. Yup, the whole glorious mess. Not that anyone actually reads this but if they […]

Blah, blah, blah

Warning….warning…..warning…..this is a self-pity post from a cranky, tired, Scrooge of a woman. If you read further, don’t say I didn’t warn you. Same old thing, over and over again, right? That’s what it feels like anyway. Job, no job, it doesn’t matter. The battles are still the same….seems the difference these days is intensity. […]

A different kind of thankful

I think it was in one of Dr. Phil’s books that he wanted readers to list seven monumental times in life….you know, the big things that have shaped you into the person you are today. I’m sure he was looking for both the usual–birth of your first child, marriage, degrees–as well as the nitty gritty–your […]

Random thoughts

You know those times when you can barely form a complete sentence, much less an interesting paragraph? If not, I’m jealous (and maybe just a little bit bitter, but we won’t go there). If so, you’ll understand why my thoughts these days come in random snippets rather than engaging prose. Among them: *Just how many […]


I used to say that all the time, when I was a kid. DO OVER!! As if saying it emphatically enough somehow made it possible to erase what had just happened and try again for a “better” outcome. So, yeah, as I’ve grown old I realize that there’s never truly a chance for a do-over. […]


That word seems appropriate these days…..missing out on fun stuff because I work too much, missing time with my kiddos because we have too many commitments, missing time with my friends for all the same reasons, missing time alone to breathe, missing so many other things……..feeling nostalgic and funky certainly doesn’t help with the ‘missing’. […]

Crying spells and lady bugs

So these past few days have been really crappy. I’m not going to dump it all out for everyone to see….let’s just say that after all is said and done I’m feeling beaten down and–for lack of a better metaphor–pecked to death. Feeling like I’ve really continued to give, and give and give some more […]

Blog….what blog??

I’m not even sure I remember how to blog, it’s been so long…..more than 3 months since I’ve posted anything. Not that life hasn’t continued on in the normal fashion, it has–I guess it just got busier (or I got lazier). Along with all the ‘normal’ stuff of life (work, bills, kids, laundry, etc) I’ve […]
