Ah, now I remember…

Not sure how long ago it was. If I really wanted to be precise with the memory, I'd scroll back through my blog posts and find it as I chronicled a lot of my life's ups and downs here on WordPress for quite a few years, but alas, scrolling through said chronicles is a long … Continue reading Ah, now I remember…

It’s Been a Minute, But Then This Happened

...and I had to write about it. So, I'm standing in a UPS store, waiting to drop off a package. White woman says, “may I help you sir.”  I don’t flinch, just say, “I’m here to drop off a package.”  The woman tells me to set it down on the scale and, “Hold on, I’ll … Continue reading It’s Been a Minute, But Then This Happened

It’s About That Time.

I'm going "Pro" y'all and that means I'll be producing exclusive content for my email subscribers and posting less and less on this and my other WordPress dot com sites. I'll still come by to read your posts; I'll still drop a comment or two, but if you want to keep up with my inconsistent … Continue reading It’s About That Time.

Challenge – Days 4 thru 6

Sorry for the delayed update - I was out of town working and vacationing and so didn't get to my computer much. So let's get you caught up: Day 4 - Do something creative:  For this, I kept it simple and did a spread in my bullet journal. Day 5 - Work out to a … Continue reading Challenge – Days 4 thru 6

Challenge Day 2 – Bust, But…

Ha, ha... yeah, so "play a game, just for the fun of it."  What I had in mind was sitting down with my sister and having her teach me how to play Apples to Apples. We ended up talking for several hours - catching up on each other's lives since we don't talk that often.  … Continue reading Challenge Day 2 – Bust, But…

Day 1 Challenge – Done

June 1st - Wear an outfit you feel GREAT in. I had a small event tonight. I had my dress all pressed, cute sandals set out, and a quick splash of polish on my toe nails. About 10 minutes before the event was to start, I looked down at my nicely fitting, faded jeans; took … Continue reading Day 1 Challenge – Done

Birth Month – Let’s Do This!

So yeah. I didn't get to celebrate my 50th the way I wanted to. But since I'm a grow'd-up, I figure I can do what I want, and that means, I'm calling a do-over! That's right, this year, my 51st trip around the sun will kick off with a 50th birthday celebration of my choosing. … Continue reading Birth Month – Let’s Do This!

Wow, It’s Been a While.

I don't blog like I used to. I don't even write like I used to. That feverish, head down, nothing else matters until I get this story written type of writing. Used to fuel my weekdays and nights to exhaustion. Somewhere along the line I came to the realization that I had pumped out those … Continue reading Wow, It’s Been a While.

Dropping the Ball.

Juggling all the superficial shit to avoid my manuscript because somewhere between Breaking Point and Aphrodite's Twin, I lost my drive to write, finish, and publish my work. I'd done it, in relatively rapid succession for seven years straight. I was chasing a high of success that remained out of my reach.  I grew disillusioned. … Continue reading Dropping the Ball.
