A reason to stop chasing dreams

*Photo By LuLuEdward Photo* I half-completed this daily writing challenge for November, but I have benefitted tremendously from what I did complete. I may not have gotten words out every day, but my goal was not so much meeting deadlines as it was developing my writing.  Truthfully, before becoming a mother, I would have scoffed at… Continue reading A reason to stop chasing dreams

#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.

You’re wrong: my dog is still my baby, too

*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
