SO I GOT MY DATES WRONG…

…She still looked really cute in that dress. And, she did a better job today following directions and participating than she ever has at Praise Kids. Maybe that was because Daddy was watching! That’s right, today is Day 2 of the Staycation, Daddy got to see Praise Kids in action for the first time. And,…

The House is CLEAN and the Camera is Broken

You may not believe me, but the house is really clean! I would post pictures for proof, but the camera is broken. You may think this is just a pathetic excuse, but it is NOT! We are having a small party for Lizzy-Jane’s second birthday on her actual birthday (Thursday). So, the house had to…

I Am Thankful, A Gentle Reminder

My daughter and I have been sick for the past two weeks. We’re heading to the Doctor again in a few short minutes. So, it would be easy to forget my blessings and dwell on all the frustrating things; like runny noses, fevers and exhaustion. So, I have decided to take a break this week…

Isabella

ISABELLA The stage manager was walking around looking for someone. Their eyes locked and she walked over, “Are you Isabella?” “Yes.” “Oh I should have known, you are so his type, they’ll see you now.” He was excited. Hopping all around.

When my daughter was just a wee lass of eight days, she already loved to read!

The Things She Does. Part 1

She knew she could inspire passion in men, and her future depended on inspiring this man, now! He smiled slowly, and got up to talk quietly to the casting director….

Villanelle – Yep, I did it!

This is my first attempt at writing a villanelle. Please be gentle. It is also my first attempt at writing for one of Mama Kat’s writing prompts. The prompt was for a description of childhood depression. But, I wasn’t depressed when I was a child, so I’m modifying it to write about what depression is…

Unmotivated

I’m feeling a little unmotivated today. I’ve been wanting to write a villanelle, but that takes TIME! And, motivation! Which, right now, I don’t have. Hopefully it will happen soon. I was awoken at 2 am by my daughter singing Jesus Loves Me at the top of her lungs. And, then at 4:30 am by…

Vamping

VAMPING She stared at the gorgeous hunk of a genius, until he looked up and locked eyes with her. She smiled and ducked her head as she walked past. She knew he was still watching, gaping really as she changed into her tap shoes, and clinked back across the room to warm up her body.
