This little slice of the internet hasn't been on my radar as of late. Hell, it hasn't even been in the vicinity. Let's be frank, the adjustment to this "new normal" has been more akin to whiplash. Isolating, scary, uncertain. I have had millions of slivers of ideas- typically poetically pondered just before sleep steals … Continue reading Mother’s Day 2020
The other night, Moose snuggled into my arms in the rocking chair and declared that he wanted to see pictures of "the baby". To be honest, it took some sussing out, as at nearly four he is still not always a wordsmith. Through a wrinkled brow and patient questioning, it was determined that the baby … Continue reading Cherishing the time
I haven't been writing. Well, that's not accurate. I haven't been publishing. I have been writing.

I question most of my decisions. As an adult. A woman. A mother. It can sometimes be a little impossible to live in my brain. I have these traits that appear opposing on the surface- complete insecurity in my choices and a prickly defensiveness. The reason I say that they only appear conflicting is because … Continue reading Hostile
My son had his first moment of sheer terror last week. He departed the bathroom to see a fly in the hallway. A fly he thought had been banished from the safe enclosure of our home. A fly I thought had been dealt with. To say that the scream that exited my son was jarring, … Continue reading Super Hero
Moose and I were blessed last week. My parents whisked us away to Orlando for a week away from reality. A week of giggles, snuggles, and adventures. I am a very blessed woman. I am not sure that I say that enough here. Quite frankly, this platform has morphed into a place where I can … Continue reading Pre Mother’s Day musings
