Confessions of a Terrible Stay Home Mom, Vol. 5

At 6:03 this morning I yelled at my Golden Retriever for basically doing her job, which was barking to alert me that someone was in the house.  Now, the someone who happened to be walking through my living room was my youngest child.  Therefore her bark succeeded in only irritating what little patience I was already praying was going to be substantially more than the day before… It was not.

A Second Installment

So last week I previewed Chapter One of Connor Blackstone and the Old Oak.  I understand that it is difficult for y’all to offer much feedback on one single chapter…but I’m not releasing more than one chapter at a time… Sorry.  Patience is a virtue. I appreciate the comments I received.  As I mentioned last week, I’m not sure how long this segment will continue; perhaps until interest fades away.  […]

Welcome to Autumn

So yesterday the thermometer in my truck read 96 degrees…it was the first the First Day of Fall, or as we in Southeast Texas like to call it, Summer 2.0 September is Fall Hat Month.  Did you know that?  I didn’t…until recently.  I am desperately looking for any-and everything to put me in the right frame of mind for Fall…Heaven knows the temperatures down here just aren’t doing the trick!  […]

Something New

Some of you have been asking me for new material…new, as in, when is your next book coming out, new. First of all, I want to thank all of you for reading my first two books; your support and encouragement has meant more to me through these years than you can imagine.  Secondly, I cannot answer when–exactly my next book will come out, but I can offer my faithful readers […]

Flawless, Fabulous, & FORTY

I have been thinking about this post for a while…a couple of YEARS to be exact.  I just had a birthday.  A BIG birthday…a birthday that women deny with just about every fiber of their being. Last week I turned 40. Gasp. Cough. Choke. You’ll be pleased to know that I can now type and actually say out loud the words “I am forty” without crying uncontrollably…just a small trickle […]

Confessions of a Terrible Stay Home Mom, Vol. 4

  Confession: My children are spoiled, rotten, and I’m sad to report, ENTITLED brats.  I have had my suspicions for quite some time, but this is a fact that I can longer avoid, nor can I deny.  They are, without a doubt, entitled…which can only mean one thing: I have failed as a mother. I came to this realization in the wee hours of the morning today, as I stood […]

Triangles and More

There is a new song circulating on country radio by artist, RaeLynn.  It’s called “Love Triangle.”  The first time I heard it, I found myself a complete and utter mess.  I’m sure many of you are thinking, “Oh sure, another country song about love gone wrong…who wouldn’t cry over that?” While a love gone wrong IS the main theme of the song, the couple in question is not the song’s […]

Mama Called The Doctor…

My kids have been back in school for about a week.  It has been a great week.  I have enjoyed it…I have been busier than I expected, although not for reasons that most of you are probably thinking… One of my sisters has been in town, and I have spent the last several days hanging out with her and her dog, Olivia.  I haven’t written anything this week because I […]

Oh, Happy Day…

It has arrived.  Let us all take a moment to fully appreciate THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL. Now, I realize that not all of my readers out there are experiencing this magical sense of euphoria.  Some of your precious spawns will not start school until next week, or even, gasp, until AFTER Labor Day!  My heart aches for y’all. As for me, I have been counting down and marking days […]

Hamburger vs Spaghetti

My apologies to all of my MALE readers…this post is technically NOT about hamburgers and spaghetti; although both foods are used as visuals later on… Well, August is National Breast Feeding Month.  Did you know that?  It seems that I am full of interesting tidbits of information as of late.  However, this particular topic struck a chord with me. You see, I nursed all three of my children.  Relax, I am […]
