My son's fiance loves to eat. I mean, like seriously loves to eat -- it's their hobby. So we went to Tin Dai Fung the other night when he was home on leave. If you don't know what Tin Dai... Continue reading
Okay I think your story tops mine doe creepiness. Ewww. I had one married guy who thought I was the image of Reba McEntire. I do. It see it. Never did but that was his excuse he said I looked like Reba and they was his hall pass. 🤢 Sent from my iPhone

It's the 77th Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack. My bestie's mom was on the beach playing as a child when the planes came in and attacked. Her mom whisked her back into the house. My daughter just went to... Continue reading

Okay, don't shoot me, but I am not a John Denver fan. Once, in a high school, this stalker guy wrote out the lyrics of a John Denver song and left it in my car. Let's be clear, I wasn't... Continue reading

We ran out of staples in my office. Ironically enough, I had a difficult time finding the staples in the office store. We don't go through many staples in my office, so I didn't want to buy a pick package.... Continue reading
I can't think of a story I enjoy more than "Les Miserables." The only time I ever went to the movie on Christmas Day was when the new version came out in 2012. That was disappointing. Although I loved Eddie... Continue reading
I really haven't shopped for a long time. I probably need to totally rehash my wardrobe. I used to care about fashion, but somehow, that left me. LOL

Last night was my company's annual Christmas party. For those of you who don't know, I work part-time for the apartment complex where I live. Every year, my bosses throw a fabulous Christmas party at the beach and we get... Continue reading
Aww God bless you. I don’t know that I’m self-publishing material but I am writing again and I love this story! ❤️ Sent from my iPhone
It’s kind of interesting to watch him go out on his own. It makes you appreciate how a lead singer is really only as strong as his band. Sent from my iPhone
Haha they are amazing. I’m so sorry that’s happening there. Praying for safety. FB messenger isn’t working. I tried to write my Aussies today. Sent from my iPhone
Thanks Ami! Sent from my iPhone
Thanks Shannon. I have to write my truth. I am legitimately not as sweet as my friends. Luckily, every friend group has that one person. 😉 Sent from my iPhone
I know. So dynamic. The movie was sad. It was like he died all over again. Sent from my iPhone

Mom's Vikng Stove (chair is there to prevent Bob the Vacuum from getting stuck) This is my mom's stove. It's a piece of art and a pain in the bum to clean. It's also not working (the ovens) right before... Continue reading

Photo: @BravoTV.com I feel like the "Shahs of Sunset" are the reality version of the "Seinfeld" cast. They seem like really terrible people -- and maybe we all would if we put our lives out there like that. But wow,... Continue reading
Thank you Ami. I’m not quitting. Just shifting. I’m working on a new book for a different market. I have to write. I’m useless at everything else. Except parenting and that’s done. 😆 Sent from my iPhone
Veronica, I think what doesn't resonate for many readers is the lack of humility in fiction. We're not perfect. We're not better than non-Christians (in fact, sometimes we have worse behavior) and I think it can be hard to relate to the lack of vulnerability. I was watching some stand-up this weekend, and I am SHOCKED at what comedians use for humor and yet, it's hilarious because it's true. I have to get back to that place where I'm not afraid to voice my truth.
I've heard this from several readers and it makes me sad. But maybe it's what God wants. Maybe we're supposed to get out of our easy chair and speak to the world. I could be wrong, and naturally, there is a place for what is being published there. It's just not my place. I'm not sure where I belong just yet, but I've got my walking papers, so it's onto what God has for me next.
I love that diagnosis and I definitely relate.
