Coming Up For Air

Posted by: | Comments (2)

You still there, Readers? So yeah, after posting for 39 days straight (*pats self on back) I decided I needed a break. And the first two days I took a break and did not post, I did not feel guilty. I felt good, in fact. Rested. But then the break turned into a week, and […]

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 […]

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 […]

Worth Repeating

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Hey there, Readers! Thank you! That’s the gist of it. That’s what’s worth repeating– thank you! There’s so much to see and read here in the blogosphere, so the fact that you’re at this little space of mine tickles me pink. and it does not matter to me one little bit if you’re visiting because […]

I Got Nothin’

Posted by: | Comments (0)

“Hey, It’s George….I got nothin’ to say.” ~George Costanza’s  (Seinfeld) message on Jerry’s answering machine Today, I’m feeling a little like that. I got nothin’. It’s about 9:00 pm and I was starting to get a little panicked about my blog as I hadn’t posted for the day yet, and worse, I had absolutely no […]

Missing BlogHer 2011

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Right about now I could be hanging out in sunny San Diego, California. That’s where this year’s BlogHer conference is. Remember how I went last year when it was in NYC? Remember how I pushed past my social anxiety and forced myself to go on my own and meet new people? And I was glad […]

Vignettes of a Tentative Writer

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.  ~William Wordsworth I am in 5th grade. I run to the mailbox. I find an envelope with writing scrawled all over the back with things like, “I Love Bucky Dent” and “Go Yankees!” and I light up knowing it’s a letter for me! It’s from my […]

My Fig Tree

Posted by: | Comments (1)

My life is full of fits and starts– grand ideas, half finished projects, unrealized dreams. Always has been. In fact, it was what my very first blog post was about way back when. It’s extremely frustrating to me. In my adulthood, I’ve become painfully aware of this shortcoming of mine, and I work every day toward […]

Blogged About With Love

Posted by: | Comments (1)

I write this mommy blog, and on this space I share my world. I started this blog, in part, to keep my family (who, at the time I started, lived on the opposite coast) updated on the goings on of my Muffin. I obviously know that what I write here is on the Internet, and […]

Going Dark

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Sometimes I just go dark. Sometimes I need to go dark. I don’t want to write or read or email or talk to anyone I don’t have to or do much of anything. It’s a descent into a funk of self doubt and depression. Before having the Muffin, when a funk would hit, I could […]
