Have you finished a rough draft of a book?
I recently finished a rough draft of chapter book for children. What a relief I felt. I finally know where the story is going, who’s in it and what happens. At least I thought I did.
But now I’m on the second draft. Working on this draft is like rearranging furniture in your house; Furniture that doesn’t all match. Maybe some is left over from your single days, some is handed down from ancestors and some acquired from marriage. At…Continue

Over the weekend I read an interesting article in the Los Angeles Times about the future of wine and it's being called: The Miracle Machine. The proposed Miracle Machine is the blessed counter top product that would give the everyday wine lover the ability to turn water (and a few prepackaged ingredients) into wine.
Two big time wine guys (with lots of fancy wine related titles after their names), have been burning the midnight oil alongside the computer…Continue

As my son grows older, we have lots of reasons to celebrate: His growing sense of responsibility, the way he is able to write and almost read, and the way he is gaining control over his emotional and physical being.…Continue

Dear World: My life is about to change. Mommy was feeling sick for awhile and not able to write as much, so I decided to jump on here and take care of business myself. One day Mommy looked at me and said, "Maura, there's a baby here in Mommy's stomach." What the hell was she talking about!? I wanted to say, "That's weird. I have yogurt in mine!" but it came out as, "Mee de ta ta bell." When she showed me a picture from her first ultrasound (whatever that is), and said, "There's your…Continue

Since my son started school I have been so curious to find out what he's up to every day. Of course I ask him, “What did you do today?” but there are no prizes for guessing his answer. I have tried the trick of arriving early and casually hanging around outside while I innocently glance inside the classroom. Murphy's Law: I could say every child in the class except mine. Asking the teachers doesn't provide much insight either. Yes they answer me but it is vague. I want details, I want the…Continue

Have I mentioned previously how much I love Pinterest? I went on there to create a board for Pirate theme goodies just so I can have an easy place to keep track of things I found. After searching their site for additional ideas, I came across much better ideas than I originally had. Things I can do myself, which means I can save money (yay)!

The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children. -Jessica Lange
I read on Wikipedia today (love Wikipedia by the way) about a term called Psychological resilience. Its basically about an individuals tendency to cope with stress and adversity. It is most commonly understood as a…Continue

We sleep with a fan on. It's not for the breeze (I don't even think it is pointed at the bed), but for the quiet sound it emits. Our son sleeps with a music player shuffling through some hand-picked soft music. I am not sure how all of us got used to sleeping with a little bit of noise, but that's a different post for a different day.…Continue

I honestly don't know where the time has gone, but apparently, I blinked, and my kids are old enough to have the "sex talk" in school. I know -- crazy, right??!!!! Yep, the wonder of the ol' reproductive system has currently been the hot topic of fifth grade…Continue
