Lessons From Leander

I grew up just outside of Austin, Texas.  I now live in Houston, Texas, and my name is Dallas…feel free to insert your own joke here ____.  I figure that I just about have most of the major metroplexes covered.  Why am I telling you this? I grew up just outside of Austin. If I told you I lived in a little-bitty town called Leander, Texas…there are only five people […]

A Pirate’s Life For Me

I spend a lot of airtime poking fun at my kids and their antics…I’ve even been known to point a laughing finger or two at the Man of my Dreams…what can I say?  My family simply provides me with ample material to write about, and quite frankly, telling all of you about it is WAY cheaper than seeing a shrink once a week. Just so y’all know that I too, […]

Be The Adult

I’m not sure why the topic of divorce has been on my mind so much lately…relax…me and the Man of my Dreams are doing just fine!  In fact, today is birthday! Happy Birthday, Sweetie!! Perhaps it is the goodness of our relationship that has me thinking about the countless other relationships out there that are struggling.  It is no secret that both my husband and myself came from divorced homes.  […]

The Super Bug

  So, I have gotten roughly twelve hours of sleep since Thursday…today is Monday.  No, my husband did not take me back to Las Vegas to party like a rock star.  The reason for my lack of shut-eye is much less exciting and much more disgusting. My house has been attacked by this season’s latest Super Bug. Trust me when I say, it is a whopper.  It all started on […]

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 […]
