Letting Go…

Our family changed yesterday. This had happened before, but yesterday was by far the hardest. Six years ago we moved from Florida to Pennsylvania leaving my then fifteen-year-old stepdaughter behind with her mother. It sucked, but it was necessary for our financial well-being and her social well-being. The job industry was tanking spectacularly so we [..Read more]

Frazzled Writer Alert!

I’ve always said that as my children get older time starts flying faster until it’s like I’m launched in a slingshot, reaching out, desperate to grasp experiences, moments, and memories as they fly past me.

The time has come where I once again have to teach another one of my children how to drive. For those of you who are going or have gone through this, I’m sorry. I feel your pain. I have three girls, each with very different personalities. My oldest is prone to panic. Each trip began [..Read more]

The Finish Line

I’ve seriously neglected my blog in observation of NaNoWriMo out of sheer necessity. This is the first year I’ve actively participated in Nano. Meaning, I made an account a few years ago and didn’t do shit with it. This year though, I made a few promises to myself… First, I would complete the 50,000 words. [..Read more]

When I’m Not Writing…I’m Golfing and Here’s Why

Last spring my husband gave me a three pack of golf lessons from an instructor for Mother’s Day. Yes, ladies…I’m sure this is way, way down on the list of things you want for Mother’s Day or maybe not on the list at all. It certainly wasn’t on mine. Until that point, I had a [..Read more]
