Too fast 

It goes too fast. I watched a video on Facebook showing a days perspective from both the mom and the little girl. What seems ordinary to us is magic to them. Kids can often see so much more than we can.  I want to see life through that lens. The lens that life is magical.... Continue Reading →

They made it!

So we bought our wedding bands from a shop in China cause we are broke and because we liked them. Well I was starting to worry that they would arrive in time for the 31st. I started feeling anxious. This morning one of the two shipping tracking numbers they had given me said it had... Continue Reading →


He stared into me, as if he could see the very blood that boiled and coursed through my veins. His eyes a mirror of passion and want. One that could not be satiated. His eyes spoke volumes of his love and his commitment to me. And for once in my life, I knew love, knew... Continue Reading →

The deep of the ocean

So many things to say. How to write them all. I worry sometimes at my inability to express all that I feel. Sometimes feelings so much can be overwhelming.  I have realized that I had suppressed so much of how I felt about things in this life that when I finally did remember what it... Continue Reading →


To me this word has a totally different meaning to me than it did 13 years ago.When I met my now X-husband, I thought that provision was monetary. It meant financially providing for your family. Making sure they have what they need. It never occurred to me that there are other kinds of provision. The... Continue Reading →

Whispered words

My Joseph and I rarely spend time alone. It is a rare occurrence lately. School and work, being a supervisor, 5 kids all the time (not all of these are mine) lead to very little time left over. And since I go to bed most nights by 8pm, this doesn't even leave us "after the... Continue Reading →


So in March there is another poetry reading with my wonderful friend Jerry. So now it is time to get off my enormous booty and write something. It has been a bit since I wrote anything and I feel the creative juices in me flowing. I wish to pour them into something wonderful. It seems... Continue Reading →

She made him a Valentine

My oldest Faith is a tough cookie. Out of all the kids my divorce was hardest on her. Not because she wanted me to be unhappy with her dad. But just because she wanted to NOT have a step dad. So she has made baby steps with Joe. She made him an unprompted Valentine. My heart... Continue Reading →

Meaningful moments

The most meaningful moments happen in the quietest moments. Time is so fast. The year is almost over.I really can't believe it. My middle daughter is going to be 7 years old tomorrow. I celebrate 10 months with Joseph tomorrow too. And dealing with my ex this week has been emotionally exhausting. So what is this... Continue Reading →

Insert Corny Title Here

It is hard to believe that once you have been with someone for nearly 8 months that it would actually get better every day. I keep waiting for it to start getting old. To get boring and settle into a nice but monotonous pace.  But it is getting better every day for me this time.... Continue Reading →

Long Days and Lonely Nights

Spoiled Rotten. This is what I have become. About a week and a half ago I had a cold. After the cold vanished my asthma decided to take up residence. It got pretty bad. And I freaked out my sweetie Joe. The text conversation went exactly like this: Me: I'm not well babe. Air is... Continue Reading →

Now I have to write at my desktop and it just isn't the same. So for now small... Continue Reading →

Inside out

My emotions are on high today. I'm feeling all ofit bubbling just below the surface. I'm glad none of it has anything to do with my kids which is great. The problem lies with my mom again. She has kidney stones. She went via ambulance to the emergency room last night and the cat scan... Continue Reading →

Enjoy the little things

If I give anyone a tiny piece of brilliant advice it would be to take a moment and enjoy the little things. There are few things in this life that bring great joy. But when you enjoy the little things life is so magical. My youngest little girl gets so excited to see me when... Continue Reading →

Another sleepless morning

I can really call it a sleepless night when I climbed into bed at nearly one am. Working till the bucks closes and then trying to sleep is sometimes hardly effective. Today I don't work till 6pm so I don't care that I find myself awake with the midget (my youngest) at 5am. I got... Continue Reading →

See I have to tragus piercings and this makes it very hard to find comfortable earphones. So... Continue Reading →
