Holidays are Over
Taken February 3, 2015 with Samsung Galaxy S3

I’m not sure I even know where to begin…

I was asleep when the ball dropped – woke up when the kids all called for rides home at the same time. It took me three trips, and I drive a mini-van. That’s a lot of drunken 20-somethings…

That old saw about “how you ring in the New Year is an indicator of how your year will go” is flat-out bullshit, if my January has anything to say about it, by the way. I’d have thought January would be a calm and steady same-old, same-old kind of routine month.

BUT.

I Kinda Love Facebook…

The Waitress, the Whiskey & the Handcuffs

The Waitress, the Whiskey & the Handcuffs

I got a great compliment from a Facebook friend that bought “The Waitress” yesterday. She read it start-to-finish before noticing that the sun had gone down, supper was late – but took the time to tell all her friends on Facebook how much she loved it BEFORE feeding the family!

I feel a little guilty, now… just not so guilty that I won’t invite my readers here to starve their own children (temporarily, at least). ;-)

Click to check it out!

P.S. A Belated HAPPY NEW YEAR! to everyone! Did you make any resolutions? Did you break them all this week? LOL!

NaNoWriMo Update…
NaNoWriMo-11042014

Not Much to Brag About, So Far…

I am so behind on word count in NaNoWriMo that it’s frightening. I have just over 1,000 words clocked. The app tells me that at the rate I’m going, I will hit 50,000 words during the second week in May.

This working full time is cramping my style…

I’m writing the coolest story, though. It’s a horror/end-of-life-as-we-know-it kind of thing and it takes place on a cruise ship. I’m having a difficult time actually typing, because the cat wants to help (I accidentally locked her out for nearly an hour, and she feels I owe her something for that…).

Motherhood Did Not Always Become Me…
Ky & Patch-1998

Don’t Let Her “Wide-Awakety” Fool You… This picture was likely taken at 2 AM.

There are things I did as the mother of a toddler, that would totally have embarrassed me to admit, back when my now-all-grown-up little girl was still a toddler. It’s a little embarrassing to admit to those things even now, although she did survive. It’s more surprising that *I* survived, to tell the truth.

Ky was one of those kids that refused to sleep at night. I joke around with new mothers all the time, about how my kid is 20-years-old and hasn’t slept through the night yet. She wanted to sleep during the day, but that was mainly because she didn’t sleep at night. Ever.
