Guilty

Posted by: | Comments (4)

The thing about my daughter (or perhaps any typical three-year-old) is that she knows when she’s doing something she’s not supposed to. She’ll be alone playing in her bedroom or the play room for a bit, and naturally I’ll pop my head in or verbally check in with her at regular intervals. “Charlie, are you okay?” […]

Here We Go Again?

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Wow. I did it. Made it another 30 days updating my blog each and every day. It’s hard to do and it’s not hard to do. It’s stressful for me and it’s good for me. Must get past this ‘every post needs to be a masterpiece’ mind-set. Must get more disciplined about writing earlier in […]

Bring On the Belt Tightening

Posted by: | Comments (2)

By the time folks are reading this post, it will be September (Crap! Already?), and I will be embarking on a new adventure– a first for me. I will be working toward making a budget and striving to be a fiscally responsible human being. How about that? So I say “working toward” because I can’t actually […]

Scraps

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Found in one of my journals (written several years ago although I don’t know exactly when) : My heart is full of scraps. Like the scraps of paper that are stuffed in my writing drawer. Bits of thoughts, Pieces of dreams, Snippets of secrets, Glimpses of moments. Someone help me sew them together and make them […]

It’s the calm after the storm. And before the next one. We managed through Hurricane turned Tropical Storm Irene just fine. There’s actually been more problems after the storm with flooding and road closures. I think the winds were more gusty yesterday than they were doing the storm, and probably took down a few more […]

The Name Game

Posted by: | Comments (3)

We call my daughter Charlie. Her full name is Charlotte Grace. I’ve heard, “Hey, that’s the same name as Sarah Michelle Gellar’s daughter.” To which I responded with a half smile and half snarl, “Yes, I know.” (and showed some restraint in not following that with, “I named mine first!” so as not to seem […]

Waiting For Irene

Posted by: | Comments (1)

What a strange day. It’s a little after 6:00 pm as I sit here in my living room and type this on my laptop. It’s been eerily quiet and it’s been raining a little off an on since the morning. My good friend’s birthday is tomorrow, but we decided to meet for breakfast this morning […]

Puttering

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Today was my last day of freedom, that is to say, my last day as a non-working mother with my child in pre-school for the day. Next week, Charlie’s school is closed, and the week after that, I will begin a new job. You would think I would have been the poster child for productivity […]

Transition to a Morning Person

Posted by: | Comments (3)

Hey folks! This is what they call here in the blogging world a guest post. I’ve worked with my best pal Lisa (who is a best pal, in part, because she indulges me by faithfully reading what I write) on a few things, and I told her she’s welcome to guest post here if she […]

Morning Person

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I long to be a morning person. Truly I do. The kind of person who wakes with sun and bounds out of bed and gets right to the day’s to-do list and feels like the day is half gone by 10:oo am. But I love me my sleep. (I think I’ve mentioned this once or […]
