It’s perfectly fine to ask for help…unless you’re me, that is. Or, I suspect, you. If your mother, spouse, friend, or sibling needed help, wouldn’t you leap to give it? Wouldn’t you stretch out your hand instantly? And sometimes you don’t know they need help unless they ask. Why don’t they just ASK? Because it’s hard. Because we live in … Read More
They say Tuesday’s child is full of grace. Apparently that isn’t so! This morning was off to a rousing start when I slept through my alarm. Oldest had decided to go traipsing around outside in bare feet, scaring me and the neighbors. I got him settled, the power inexplicably went off (why?),and then I managed to get Middlest to her … Read More

I plug Sweet Thang into the wall and let her charge. Run and tell that. I’m finishing the edited draft of my … Read More
I did the craziest thing. I thought back to when I was a kid out in the country, and we’d run around singing Kenny Roger’s “The Gambler”. (Don’t you judge me!) To this day I think of the words, “Know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, know when to walk away, know when to run.” Ladies and … Read More
Wow, and it was thrown in a big way. My goal is to have my Williams Project in the hands of Mr. Agenty Man J by November first. This gives me a concrete deadline as well as clearing my plate for my fifth NaNoWriMo, yeah? I can totally do it. First I have to take all of my separate … Read More
