The Duke Boys

Happy Friday to everyone…actually, Happy St. Patrick’s Day.  I did not realize it was St. Patty’s Day until I started typing this out.  I woke up this morning and thought it was Sunday. Welcome to a day in MY life. I appreciate everyone’s patience with me over the last several weeks on the blog front.  As many of you know, I have been desperately trying to finish my latest book, […]

I Just Wanted To Sleep…

  I know that things have been somewhat quiet on the blog-front lately.  What can I say?  My kids have been super well behaved lately!   No one has climbed on the roof.  No one has broken anything…no one has had any stand-offs with a teacher.  My seemingly never-ending supply of writing ammo had, in fact, run out. Color me shocked, and if I’m being honest, a little disappointed. Enter my […]

United Flight 1849

I cannot BELIEVE I went the entire month of January without a single post!!  I am so sorry.  Apparently, the writer’s block that has overtaken my brain does not only apply to my new book–but also to my blog. Thankfully, last weekend my daughter and I took a little trip to sunny San Diego to visit my sisters.  They seldom fail to provide me with writing material.  My baby sister […]

A Baby Changes Everything

Is anyone else busy?  ‘Tis the season for even more insane schedules and jam-packed days.  I honestly cannot believe that the Internet is still up and running with all of the last minute BUY NOW clicks that I have been purchasing with the hope of having gifts delivered by Christmas. Christmas. It’s coming…ready or not…Christmas will be here in three days. Christmas or not…my youngest sister is doing her part […]

Chapter Three

I know it has been a while since I let everyone in on Connor’s progress…some of you like to know what’s going on with Connor Blackstone and the Old Oak, while others of you are more interested in which one of my kids I found escaping through a bedroom window to sit and star-gaze from the roof.  You’ve got three guesses as to which kid that was…let me help you: […]

My Toddler

So, this morning as I was trying to wake up and ready myself for the day, I was cruising Facebook.  I do this on a regular basis in the wee hours of the morning; it helps to pull my brain out of the foggy-I-just-crawled-out-of-bed phase, and into the I-must-face-my-day mode. This morning, as I sat in my cozy chair, next to my fully decorated Christmas tree, I read a most […]

The Eye Patch

Hey now…it’s a Thoughtful Thursday…on a TUESDAY!!! So, Thanksgiving is in TWO DAYS.  I hope you’re ready for it.  I think I am.  In fact, at our house, we are having a Merry Thanksmas.  Yesterday afternoon I managed to put the finishing touches on my Christmas decorations, save one. I have one Nativity scene that still needs to go up. The last remaining hold-out on my decorations is a lovely […]

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

To shop or not to shop?  That is the question.  There is no doubt about it…I am in full-blown-hands-down-four-alarm-Holiday-Mode (as evident by my last post).  I have a boat-load of family coming in next week to celebrate Turkey Day, and I could not be more excited! My television is steadily reminding me through a never-ending stream of festive commercials that Christmas is coming.  So, that brings me to my next […]

I Know It’s Early

  Okay, I know it’s early…but let me explain. First of all, I love Christmas.  That’s it.  I simply LOVE, love, LOVE, Christmas.  I love how most people (there are exceptions to every rule) are in a perpetual good mood.  I love the happy and festive music.  I love remembering the Christmas Story, and thinking about Jesus coming to us as a baby.  I love Christmas movies…even the really terrible […]
