A Little Quiet

on March 30, 2018

*whew* First of all, thanks for all the warm wishes, both here and around the net. You guys are all really kind to me, even the people who don’t always agree with what I say. I’m grateful. Second, good news is, we only got Gibby the Chihuahua today, and she’s not staying long. Not that… Read More

Wrung Out

on March 29, 2018

Some people can go-go-go all the time, and on the one hand I envy them. But on the other hand I’m like, “When do you… you know… think?” I need quiet in which to think. These last few weeks have been nutsy-cuckoo this way. My only real peace has been writing, but I haven’t had… Read More

Too quiet…

on March 27, 2018

* Went and saw Love Simon today with Chicken. We loved it. I cried. We both irritated the crap out of people who were at the movies to see Paul, the Apostle. It was money well spent. *  Took the cat to the vet today. Mate chased her… –Out from under the kids’ bunk bed,… Read More

Face first, into the pillow…

on March 26, 2018

So… Friday Squish had a dance and she looked lovely and Saturday Mate started the morning by taking her to spring soccer practice while I took the dogs for a walk, and then I came home and made the kids pack. And then we packed up the car with stuff for kids and stuff for… Read More

Me: Yeah, I couldn’t go on my walk today–that sort of sucked. Mate: Did you not have any time? Me: No–I totally went, but it was flooded, so no walk. See the pictures? Mate: It totally counts. You went, you got out of the car, you took pictures. Counts. Me: Excellent! Win! *  *  *… Read More

Counting Blessings

on March 22, 2018

So I was walking the dogs in the rain, and feeling sorry for myself for a variety of reasons I won’t bore you with because even I knew they were stupid. The dogs were looking damned pathetic–as you can see here, the great flood was in progress and they couldn’t believe I was making them… Read More

Guess What’s Coming to Your Local Book Store!

on March 21, 2018

 So it was a really quiet day today. It rained a little, I picked up the kids–we watched a lot of TV tonight as a family which was nice. Mostly, I was writing, which I really need to do, along with a bunch of other stuff, so even though there’s going to be Kermit Flail… Read More

So, getting back into the swing of things this weekend, and taking care of some odds and ends! This one’s going to be a bullet point post, because if I’m lucky I can put together 2K for my word limit tonight, but I’m still a little tired and not feeling that lucky! Here goes! *… Read More

Vacationing: The Lane Family Blizzard Hits the East Coast

on March 15, 2018

 Okay–so we went back east. The purpose of going back east was to see Mate’s half-brother get married, but Mate also wanted to make the kids “see some culture” as it were, so in between “Hey, kids, you have to dress up in your best clothes and see a bunch of people you don’t remember… Read More
