What She Taught Me

Tackling a Mama Kat writing prompt today; one that is heavy on my heart and so fresh, even after almost 42 years, that it brings tears and a funky outlook on life. It's no secret to anyone who knows me or who reads my blog that Mother's Day is tough for me. As  mom, it's […]

How Cee Lo Green and Amy Winehouse Killed My Wog

  I do believe I need an intervention. I've started (yes, again….don't judge) the Couch25K program. I'm hoping that by the time The Color Run lands in Kansas City, I'll be more of a jogger than a wogger (you know…that oh-so-hot combination of waddling and jogging).  I keep trying to push aside those thoughts from […]

She’s Bringing Sassy Back

  About a week ago I wrote a post about the media's speculation about Ashley Judd's changed appearance and her diligence in taking them to task for their attitude.  I sat on it for several reasons, the strongest of which was that I was unsure of myself. Not unsure of my thoughts, but unsure about […]

What They Teach Me

I've wanted to do a Mama Kat prompt for a really long time. I'd always put it off, though, thinking that I'd carve time out at the end of a work day filled with 'productive' writing. Yes, I hear Dr. Phil's voice in my head asking 'how's that workin' for ya?' because it's painfully obvious […]

Grandma, Growing Old and Lent…..Really

I'm thinking a lot about age these days; growing old, feeling old, acting old. Perhaps it was the heart attack my dad had, or my time with my grandma over the weekend, but it seems to be hitting closer to home than I'd like to admit. I realize that it's a blessing to grow old. […]

Dancing Through Disappointment

Tonight should be a special night for my girl. It’s the Daddy Daughter dance for her Girl Scout troop; a 50’s theme, special time with the most important man in her life, girlfriends to be silly with and enough sugar to keep her flying high until Tuesday night. Should be. I do my damndest to […]

OLW Blog Hop

Here we are again….beginning another year. January was a funny month. Funny ha-ha as well as funny ironic, right down to the weather. I don't know that I recall a January devoid of snow and filled with days that required only a sweater or a light jacket, but that's what we've been enjoying. And you'd […]

Stuck in the Mundane

I've been stuck lately. Consumed with the thought that nothing I have to share is original, much less inspirational. I type and then backspace, reminding myself with each stroke that what I just thought has not only already been expressed, but expressed more eloquently, or with a sharper wit or a funnier joke. So I've […]

Final One Little Word Blog Hop of 2011

Here we are….a full year later and still hopping. A huge thanks to Margie who hosts this monthly event. It keeps me accountable to checking in with my One Little Word and for that I am grateful. The January 1 hop goes live at 8 a.m. PST, and the entire list is below. If you're […]

#Reverb11….Appreciate

December 17 prompt from ReSound11: What's the one thing you've come to appreciate most in the past year? I can't choose just one….seriously, I'm supposed to choose just one?! Impossible, when I sit and actually think of everything in my life. There's no way to really compare so many different things from different parts of […]
