#NaBloPoMo: being thankful for the bad

I have totally flunked this daily writing challenge. I have missed several days in a row now. The worst part is that I have knowingly, intentionally missed these days. Where have I been? Introverting hardcore. Mindlessly browsing pointless things on the Internet, splurging in Breaking Bad episodes, eating comfort foods with no real appetite, unplugging for Thanksgiving… Continue reading #NaBloPoMo: being thankful for the bad

I am happy, but that doesn’t make me superhuman

*Photo by Just B Photo* Nov. 21: What is the one thing you wish people better understood about something in your life? One of the biggest misunderstandings people have about me is my happiness. I am an optimistic person, and I do have a generally happy-go-lucky personality. I firmly believe that this positive outlook is… Continue reading I am happy, but that doesn’t make me superhuman

The art of marriage and parenting

The writing prompt today is, "What's the dumbest thing you and your partner have ever fought about?" When I posed this question to my husband, his response was "It's always my fault."  Me: That did not answer the question. What are you talking about? Him: I don't know **Returns to video games** But, I don't know… Continue reading The art of marriage and parenting

*Photo by LuLuEdward Photo* Today's daily writing prompt begged the question, "What is the hardest or best lesson you’ve learned from having pets?" My eyes lit up. I.LOVE.MY.DOG! I could write a novel on all the wonderful things he - and his predecessors who have furever left paw prints on my heart - have taught me… Continue reading You’re wrong: my dog is still my baby, too

Actually, I don’t have 10 minutes

I had every intention of publishing timely, daily blogs for this challenge of joining National Blog Posting Month. I was doing really good the first week. I had time to preview a few prompts, hash out a few drafts. Now that I'm in the thick of it,  I realize how difficult it truly is to… Continue reading Actually, I don’t have 10 minutes

NaBloPoMo: what our babies teach us

*Photo By LuLuEdward Photo* Yesterday's National Blog Posting prompt was "What are five funny (but real) things your current relationship has taught you?" (I know, I know, I'm a day late. For what it counts, I wrote this out in my head last night while nursing the little man to sleep. Half-credit?) I immediately thought of my… Continue reading NaBloPoMo: what our babies teach us

NaBloPoMo: What do you want to say to Hillary Clinton today?

When I previewed this prompt for National Blog Posting Month, I assumed - like most Americans - that this would be a response addressing her as the first female President of the United States. That didn't happen.  Clinton couldn't gain the trust she needed despite her qualifying lifelong career in public service and even-keeled temperament. She… Continue reading NaBloPoMo: What do you want to say to Hillary Clinton today?
