A Weekend to Remember

It all started with a trip to Texas Friday night that felt so much longer than it should have been. For some reason the highway getting there and back, once entering Texas is always a mess of construction. I don't know if it's that the construction workers are all too busy watching one guy dig… Continue reading A Weekend to Remember

Mother’s Day

With the impending Mother’s Day coming up, I decided to write a post about Moms. I always feel a little corny though writing about this, because I am a mom and it feels like I’m bragging. Being a mother is probably the only job that we feel guilty when talking about. We face the glazed… Continue reading Mother’s Day

Japper Jaws

I have always been connected to words. Though I have pretty much been able to speak my opinions since the day I was born, I have never really been able to vocalize my feelings. Opinions and emotions are two totally separate worlds. My opinions are based on logic, but my emotions are a heart thing.… Continue reading Japper Jaws

What Reflection Do You See?

I saw this beautiful photograph and it made me stop and think. What image is it that we see of ourselves within our reflection? For years I couldn’t see anything, but my pain, my past, my failings. It was a negative cycle. The feeling inside of never being good enough and the perpetuation of that… Continue reading What Reflection Do You See?

Miss Menopause

I have entered into a new phase of my life. One that is as equally exciting as it is a bit horrifying. I remember my Mother going through it when I was a kid and wondering what exactly it meant. Now, I understand. Let me take you a bit back in time. I feel as… Continue reading Miss Menopause

Traction: A Useful Tool

I'll start off by saying that I have this nervous tick that causes me to rearrange rooms of my house randomly, every few months. Every house we've lived in has never staid the same for too long. I paint walls, rearrange furniture, re-purpose other furniture in new rooms until I feel settled...and exhausted. I think… Continue reading Traction: A Useful Tool

Evolution of Indifference

  The page turned like a creaky door Opening to more perplexing disillusion Searching for the words written in invisible ink The hidden message to decode the confusion The water was stone chipping away at the rock The forest was air and threadbare of life The dirt was fire consuming each step Inhibiting the propulsion… Continue reading Evolution of Indifference

Baker or Glutton for punishment?

I have this sweet tooth, which would totally explain the reason I keep having teeth pulled out of my skull, but I digress. I've been on this baking kick lately. Truth be told, I have always wanted to be one of those bakers who can make these fantastic cookies, pies, cakes and breads that look… Continue reading Baker or Glutton for punishment?

Painkiller Adventures

So the dentist prescribed me some high volume antibiotics and a strong pain killer for my tooth. For 21 years I lived on multiple pains killers, around the clock for a hereditary and painful back condition. To say that I hate taking pain medicine is an understatement to the millionth degree. I hate the way… Continue reading Painkiller Adventures

Who Needs Teeth Anyway?!

So I went to the dentist yesterday because over the weekend I started having this intense pain through my tooth, jaw and entire right side of my face and head. Feels like I've been repeatedly punched in the face and just as that pain from a beating starts to ache and throb, I get punched… Continue reading Who Needs Teeth Anyway?!

A Family of Love

It's been seventeen years since I have seen most of my family. Some, only fifteen and others 20+ years. This weekend I saw almost all of them, for yet another funeral of someone we all love dearly. Although the circumstances of our visit was terribly sad, the visit with all of the family was rejuvenating.… Continue reading A Family of Love
