“Write hard and clear about what hurts.” – Ernest Hemingway Sometimes I feel like screaming. Not very original I know because everyone in the world feels like screaming sometimes. But I don’t have the luxury of actually doing the screaming. My husband and I are not even being […]
Summers long ago, we were lucky enough to experience weeklong family vacations. An entire week = soo lucky. The ‘rents, my younger brothers and I drove to a different spot every summer. Colorado Springs, Niagara Falls, New York, and Washington D.C. – all while in the family truckster (station wagon to the young’uns). But […]
You ever have your “best friend” lie to you – on purpose? How about someone who would steal from you even though you would’ve just given them anything had they just asked? By all means, I’m no saint but – I. Fucking. Hate. Liars. It is the worst sin […]

Good ol’ days eh?
“Let me call you back when I know what the EMTs say…” One phone call changed this little family’s life and came in the wee morning hours, late spring. At a spry 33-years old and while working his part-time second job, my husband suffered a stroke. I know what you’re probably thinking, […]

I can’t imagine what I was thinking when I came up with this list of fave quotes. Just go with it.
Ten days ago I promised to write something every day on my new blog. I haven’t. Totally sucks because I am really serious about getting this shit off my mind and fuckin’ with someone else’s. You know…just for a bit. But suck me sideways – long ass week […]
Do you ever quote movies in response to real-life situations? Our family sure as shit does. If something happens around here that reminds us of something we’ve seen in a movie, we quote.
This is my outlet. I gotta write something every day and today’s that day. Not entirely sure what I’ll write about just yet, so know that this is a work in progress with inevitable changes I’m sure. I’ve got some kids, I stay […]
