Goals? Commitments? I should be Committed.

Another great day in Mrs. Garloch’s classes. If I could teach JUST the honors students? Sign me up. So fun. But I seem to have made a promise. Or a commitment. Or a goal. Am I insane? Probably. I told these fantastic kids that they could do a galley project for me. That I would […]

Where Am I?

Yesterday, where was I? At the optometrist’s office, having my retina checked. Because possibly I’m a hypochondriac. Here’s the story: At my last visit, he said, Hey, lady, you have dreadfully strong contacts prescriptions.

Breakfast Joy

So I’m not a big breakfast eater. I don’t love milk, and I’m sort of disenchanted with maple syrup. But my Kids (and Husband) get a hot breakfast every morning. And some mornings, like this one, breakfast borders on dessert. I wish I had a camera. You’d want to lick the screen. Here’s what we […]

But my WIP is growing because I’ve been diligent. (I love me some diligence.) The writing goals are excellent […]

Tap… Tap… Tap.

Oh, mercy. This is going to take forever. Do you know how there are some days when it all clicks? Whatever it is you’re doing, it just sort of happens? Those days are good, right? I have those days when I’m writing. Sometimes I can bust out a thousand words in an hour. One very […]

News Flash: Boys and Girls are Different.

I know. This is breakthrough stuff. But it’s on my mind, so now it’s on your screen. Once upon a time, maybe ten years ago, I read a book. This is not news. But the book was nonfiction (rare), and about sports (exceedingly rare). It’s called “The Power of Nice” by a sports agent/lawyer called […]
