No, this is not an attempt at deplorably written flash fiction. I am renting a lake house. Rather, I am renting a house by a lake. Okay, the lake is visible from my front yard if I walk to the edge of the road and strain my neck a bit.... Continue reading

A slow, thudding knock at the door is quite possibly the worst thing that could wake someone from a dream involving trick-or-treating with her two children during the worst resource drought in history on the first day of the zombie apocalypse. As it turned out, though, my bedroom door was... Continue reading

The Worm But I do not happen to like worms. I've never actually eaten one, of course. I suppose that makes me a hypocrite. I tell my children they should try something before deciding they do not like it, but here I am holding a worm-prejudice though no worms have... Continue reading

Better Late Than Never As of today, officially, I hold an MA in English with TESL option. I don't feel any different. I know it is a big step, a goal towards which I have worked mostly hard, sometimes lazily, sometimes two tears in a bucket, mother fuck it. I... Continue reading

The Journey Hello readers. I know...I know...where the hell have I been all your lives...or at least since my last post? As you all may well remember, in late June I found myself back in Texas, struggling to keep my babies happy and entertained while I finished an online course,... Continue reading

As you all know, I will be starting my final MA course in July. Upon successful completion of the one I'm currently enrolled in and the one in Summer II, and upon a successful passing score on the last MA qualifying exam in August, I will possibly be able to... Continue reading

Alexander's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day I remember reading that book as a child, numerous times. It was a cute story about a little boy whose day didn't go his way. The message you were supposed to glean from it was that he was responsible for his own... Continue reading

The following is an essay I wrote yesterday morning (06/26/12) in an early morning urge-to-write frenzy. Enjoy. Or heckle. Your choice. Funny Thing Is… I know it is certifiably insane of me to even be contemplating the cosmos, fate, and the reasons I’ve been raising two girls alone for the... Continue reading

I'm tired... I'm not talking about the kind of tired that a full night's rest on a comfortable mattress could solve. I'm not talking about the kind of tired an overnight Spa visit could handle. I'm deep-seated tired. Exhausted. Plumb tuckered out. It's not enough that I've been laboring endlessly... Continue reading

Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizon Okay, so there weren't ninety nine of them (more like seven) and they weren't toy helium balloons (small water balloons actually), but the girls and I had fun with a friend playing in their front yard lobbing the ballons at each other and finishing the... Continue reading

BBW By now, surely, you've all had a chance to watch my YouTube rant about the term BBW (http://tinyurl.com/FatDoesntDefine), or have at least read the blog entry wherein I typed the entire transcript thereof (http://tinyurl.com/FatDoesnt). BBW, for those of you who do not know, is an acronym for big beautiful... Continue reading

But I digress... I will, dear readers, eventually get to the point of this post, the crux, the essential, the title topic...eventually. If I may, though, be permitted a serious digression in the form of several paragraphs which may well be oversimplifying the last month or so of my life.... Continue reading

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, various species of kelp, I am excited to announce a new development in my life!

It is February 29. If you pop out a baby today, he or she will only technically have a birthday every four years, making the whole turning 21 and buying a beer at midnight tradition kind of awkward but maybe your Leap Day baby won't be a drinker. If I... Continue reading

Since my white night ran off with an ogre and my knight in shining armor lost his horse in a bet, this Cinderella-wanna-be is doing it for herself (take that any way you must). Tonight, I am awake at this ungodly hour because I just finished another round of revisions... Continue reading

I never wanted to be a single mom. Some women do. They plan it. Not me. I wanted the husband, the 2.5 kids (we'd name the .5 kid Halfy and adore his half-formedness), the dog, the cat, the cars, the house...Living the suburban dream, lemme tell ya! But, instead, parts... Continue reading
