Releasing Gillian’s Wolves – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
“Jack, I don’t care what you do, I really don’t. But,” I paused until I was sure of his full attention, “you might want to keep it in your pants. All deals are off if I wake some morning to find… Continue

The Feeding and Funding Mission Begins! My 11 year old makes dinner! Day 4

As a Power Mom intent on feeding and funding my family, I always make home cooked meals! Okay maybe not ALWAYS but that is my intent (on my best days and when I am in a good mood.) Anyway, I had just cleaned the house when my men returned from a summer morning fishing trip! I had lunch all prepared and was ready to set the table on a fresh table cloth when my husband walked into the kitchen and put not only his fishing pole and gear but his just returned from the gross lake shows on top of my… Continue

Two weeks ago, we went to the beach for a week, and my children would barely eat. We were busy swimming, boogie boarding, sight seeing, and golfing. Since we have been home, the weather has been pretty pitiful, so we have all been stuck inside. I hate the word bored, but they are bored! When they are bored, they tend to eat more. Kate is eating every 30 minutes, and claims she is starving! In addition, Cam has been sleeping in, so he wants to start the day with cereal or pancakes, even if… Continue

Vacation = Relaxation? I'm not so sure. We have been home from vacation for 5 days, and I still don't feel "caught up". I am really tired, still haven't put all of our laundry away, and haven't fixed my hair since we returned home. I am however, soooo happy to be home! It is always nice to get away, but by the end of vacation, I am always excited to return to the comfort of my own home, and ready to eat home cooked meals. This year, we headed to Myrtle Beach for a week. We had an… Continue

I am about to develop a new hobby. Race Stalking. Intrigued? You should be.
It's also known as the Ultimate Free Way to Entertain Kids For An Extended Period of Time. That's a mouthful, so I'll just go with Race Stalking.
Here's how you do it. Check your local… Continue

Sometimes I feel so incredibly small. Swallowed by the sea of information I attempt to swim in each day. The internet does that to me sometimes. Makes me feel even tinier in scope of the big picture.
I'm one of those types of people who keep turning around, mouth agape, ready to try something new that's caught my fancy. And yet, sometimes I don't feel like I'll ever master anything. I love sewing...but don't get around to it often. I love embroidery, but can't remember the last time I… Continue

Recently, I was given a gift certificate to a ritzy spa for my thirtieth birthday. For the past two months, I’ve held on to that little card with its elaborate curlicues, both enthralled and petrified by the idea of using it. As with…

When talking with any sane adult, one can reasonably expect a conversation consisting of a chain of statements stemming from a comparatively small bank of possibilities. One might not know, for example, exactly how one’s colleague will respond to a business proposal, but rest assured he most likely…

We have an ice issue in our house. It’s an issue that involves laziness, denial, blindness, stubbornness, and principle.

It's baseball season, America's favorite pastime, which means ballpark hotdogs, ice cold beer and the roar of the crowd… unless you are the mom of Little Leaguer. Youth baseball consists more of bologna sandwiches, luke-warm juice boxes, and the roar of the kid sitting next to you. Another season of… Continue

On a hot summer day, there is nothing better than a cold, juicy, slice of watermelon! I am pretty sure I could eat my weight in watermelon! This past weekend, we went to a cookout at a friends house, and at the last minute, I decided to slice up the… Continue

My journey into photography classes has come to an end. Two straight months of assignments became a bit grueling, and I will admit I flaked a bit on the last week. The final assignment, a sort of culmination of all that I have learned, was to take a photo walk and capture the moments and surroundings. Exhausted, overwhelmed by switching to WordPress, and frustrated or not, I knew I had to make time for that one. A tribute to my… Continue

While writing "All Alone" earlier this week, my fingers actually kept tap-tap-tapping away. And I looked up, and the sun had not only set, it was pitch dark outside. And a whole story had poured out. The post was so long I had to chop it in half, wrap up my thoughts and finish it in this post. Continue
These past few months I've been thinking a lot about what "loneliness" and "being alone" are. 'Tis typical for me every…
