I’ve been productive in every aspect of my life for the past several days.Continue reading “Productive”
Let me start by saying this:

There is only one correct way to load the dishwasher.
Yesterday my mom treated me to ice cream.Continue reading “Late afternoon walk”
When I first started blogging, my now-16-year-old son was a baby. I’m on my third blog (and I have a fourth one in which I publish erotic fiction), so I’ve been around the block a few times when it comes to WordPress. Ha.
So it won’t be anyone’s surprise that I have made a few friends along the way.Continue reading “A tribute to blogger friendships”
I’m staying at my mom’s for the duration of the deck construction back at my house. This time, I took the little troublemaker Beagle puppy and teen girl with me – there is no fence to contain Tucker while they’re building the deck, and the girl needed a change of scenery.
While at mom’s I’ve enjoyed an increase in productivity. I’ve been doing all the stuff I’ve been meaning to, and Getting. Things. Done.

This is the first summer in which neither kid is playing baseball. They both started with t-ball at age 4… They are now 13 and a half and 16.
Because we are still in the slowly emerging opening up of lockdown (stage 2 with stage 3 happening in a week) not much activity is available for them. My son picked up golf and is looking for a part-time job, but my daughter is in that tricky age where she’s too young to get a job and there aren’t too many options available right now for volunteering and other things.
So summer so far is looking very similar to the last 16 months of lockdown… Kids staring at screens.Continue reading “Summer so far: lifted restrictions, new hobbies and a little update”
What is this silence people speak of? What does it feel like?
There’s a lot of noise in my life and in my head.Continue reading “Silence, music and The Purge”
