Do You LIKE Me?

Right now, I’m sitting in a quiet house. This almost never happens.  As a matter of fact, the silence is so heavy that it is actually pressing in on my ears and making them hum.  Not even the dogs are moving.  It’s eerie. So, I did what any normal person in this situation would do…I reached for my phone. Over the past few days, the noise level in my house […]

Confessions of a Terrible Stay Home Mom Vol. 7

Wow.  It’s been a while since I’ve done a Confession.  Y’all seem to enjoy these sick and twisted escapades into the dark recesses of my mind…I’m not sure what that says about you, as my readers, but, here goes. I realize that I have been somewhat quiet on the blog-front lately.  I’ve been writing elsewhere.  I’m sorry; I feel like I’ve been cheating on y’all.  I have two books that […]

Avocados and Pantene

So, there’s a tropical storm looking to stir up some trouble on the Gulf coast this weekend. Naturally, the local news in Houston is advising all viewers to head to the grocery stores and stock up on supplies. I had to smile. I also went to the store…not necessarily because I have major concerns for Tropical Storm Cindy, but because Summer is in full swing at my house, and if […]

Happy Father’s Day

I realize that I have been MIA for quite sometime.  My apologies.  The last few months have been rather hectic around my house.  The end of the school year brings something akin to controlled chaos in daily waves of assault on our family, add a couple of week-long out of town trips, and a two-week-cross-country-family-vacation and voila…y’all are now up to speed! I am just now coming up for air…or […]

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 […]
