February 23, 2017 You’re locked in a room with your greatest fear. Describe what’s in the room. CLOWNS! But not just any type of clowns. The little kid party, McDonalds kind of clowns are the type that freak me the hell out. I dont know why and as far as I know there is no traumatic interaction with this particular type of clown in my past. I just genuinely dislike and want to punch them in the face when I see them. Now the super weird part… Clowns like the one in Stephen Kings movie “IT” dont bother me at all. ICP, any other horrorRead More →

Call me, maybe Describe your relationship with your phone. Is it your lifeline, a buzzing nuisance, or something in between? Oh Lord, my relationship with my phone. My unhealthy, obsessive compulsive, love/hate relationship with my phone. The phone that in all reality hasn’t been a part of my life for too long. The phone that I have named like someone would name their car. (Her name is Lela after my grandmother by the way.) My phone has become my lifeline, one of my best friends (I know that is sad, trust me), a necessity, a medical device, a tracker, and so much more. I useRead More →

So I know that I’m missing some days in my journey to blog every single day of the year. My bad. I haven’t claimed sick husband yet, so I’m gonna cash that in now. 😉 My favorite blogging software is also acting wonky and I’m no sure if it’s even being supported which is kind of sad. Things were good up until about a week ago and I’ve been with them since the beginning. Only time will tell. I’ll hopefully be back at it sooner than later. I promise that I’ll at least get everything transferred over to the new app I’m using this weekend.Read More →

Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda Tell us about something you know you should do . . . but don’t. Something that I should do, but dont. Oh there are so many things that I could write about here. I could write a thousand pages on this writing prompt but Ill pick the one thing that bugs me the most that I could do and should do, but I dont do it all the time. Heres to hoping to change that during 2017 Keeping on top of the laundry. That is what I should do but dont. I am notorious for enjoying washing the clothes, and I evenRead More →

The closest you’ve ever come to fame was… Back when my oldest son was young I spent some time in Texas checking out opportunities and seeing if possibly we could make a better life down there. On the way to San Antonio, I stopped in Ft. Stockton, Texas. When I stopped I was dead broke. I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to cut it down in Texas and I was hungry. There’s a truck stop cafe in Ft. Stockton right off the highway so I stopped there to rest and see if I could scrounge together enough for something small to eat. IRead More →

Childhood Revisited Todays writing prompt seriously has me thinking. Here it is. Sure, you turned out pretty good, but is there anything you wish had been different about your childhood? If you have kids, is there anything you wish were different for them? When it comes to myself, I think I turned out pretty good. I was a hell of a teenager and dont know how my mom and dad made it through those years. 😉 All the experiences that I have had in my life have made me who I am today; a wife, mother, daughter, author. As for my children, I personally wouldntRead More →

Some think I am boring. Some think I am bold by following my dreams. Some think I am downright nuts for doing what I do (writing) and doing online school with my youngest. You know what I say to them? Mind your own damn business! No matter who you talk to, no matter what their opinion of me and my family, it will differ from the next person who has an opinion. There’s an old saying, “Those who matter don’t mind, and those who mind don’t matter”. That is how I feel about someone who thinks I am far from normal. My family according to most is a typical all-American family with 3.5Read More →

I was doing so good! Ugh. Didn’t intentionally skip the 6th blog post or the one for today, but circumstances out of my control happened. I apparently slept wrong and have tweaked something in my neck which now will not move to either side. 🙁 May not be back to daily till the end of the week but the second part of my proposal post is on its way. I promise. I hope that this update finds everyone in good health and if not, please get better soon. #StaySaucy, SayreRead More →
