Prompted: broken

I wish I knew what to say, but I don’t. I never do. “I’m sorry” gets old. It’s never enough. “I’m sorry,” I say anyway, because saying nothing is worse. “You don’t have to apologize,” she lies. I can be silent now that I’ve apologized, so I stare at my feet, which is a mistake. […]

January status

January didn’t go well. I mean, it kind of did. I wrote a very short piece of fiction and posted it on the blog. I had a birthday and lived through it. My two kids are awesome and my family is as healthy as usual, and I got to spend some time with friends. But […]

Prompted: indulge me

I’ve been spending a lot of time on Twitter lately and there’s a person there promoting her Patreon (as one does), which I have an odd fascination with, and she’s very motivational, and I thought…okay. I’ll be her patron for a small monthly amount because A) I can use some extra motivation, and B) it […]

2019 Wishlist

The first couple weeks of January have gone by, and we are officially past the halfway point. Woo! I’ve been thinking about the two goals I set for January, but am having a hard time keeping up with them. Nothing particular is getting in my way except myself and my own lack of willpower. I’m […]

That Feeling

Do you know that feeling when your heart breaks because you’re so joyfully heartbroken? Maybe not. One of my closest friends just marveled at my ability to not only feel it, but express it. I just read two short stories I need to share because of how many feels there are. And you may be […]

Birthday skies

First

I’m going to be doing the Blog All About It blog challenge by herding cats & burning soup because I stumbled on it through another author’s blog and it sounds like a lot of fun! January’s topic is First. There are a lot of Firsts I can talk about today, which makes today a great day to make this post. Today is […]

Goal 01R:2019 – Write More Words

Oh, hello there! I’m so glad you came back to read more – or that you found my blog and decided to start here! It’s officially 2019! And with a bit of hemming and hawing; researching and borrowing of ideas; thought and letting the wine think for me; I have decided on how to make […]

Goal 01F:2019 – Move More

I just finished my first goal for Write More Words post, and decided it was a good time to dive into the same post for Move More. Hi! Welcome! So exercise is something I have done successfully in the past. I’ve been able to lose some weight by following Body for Life and Leslie Sansone’s Walk Away the Pounds, I’ve kept regular trips […]

Beauty-full

My parents recently had their anniversary, and my dad found a place that sells roses at a reasonable price, and he got my mom one rose for every year they’ve been married. They’ve blossomed well. There is a leaf on the ground near their home that is on fire, and I grabbed a photo of […]

Things I Want

I wrote down on a piece of paper (that I cannot find) my two overriding goals that will govern my 2019. I hesitate to call them goals specifically for 2019 because these goals go farther than that. “They” – and by that I mean the people who encourage abundance mindsets whose messages I tend to […]
