Hail to the Handwritten Note



By some standards, handwriting is already considered an “ancient” skill. Next thing we’ll know, it will be an extinct art form practiced by only a few artisans. Well, not in my lifetime if I have anything to do with it! These days, the charm of receiving a handwritten note is manifest (any handwriting will…

The Trouble with Titles

I am always amazed at how some bloggers seem to effortlessly put out a blog a day, day in and day out. I guess they can sit down at their desk in the morning, and over coffee tap out 500 words that are witty, or wise. I just don’t work that way. I am an uber-organized person, or at least I try to pretend I am, and I need to write on a schedule. Everyday, Monday through Friday, I try to write something. I like to write a post for A Mother’s Hood and because I actually get paid at…

The Biscuit and Bygones

I’ve spent the weekend hiding from my family, under the guise of “writing.” I really am writing because…well, I am. The girls have been in school a total of three days in the last eight, and I am going crazy…so I am “working.”

 

Sometimes when I write, I need total silence. Sometimes, I need to write in a noisy Starbucks. Sometimes, I play classical music, and at other times, I watch television or movies. But since I don’t have cable in my office, I have to resort to my DVD…

Having an "aah" Moment

I should be bouncing for joy.



I should be performing cartwheels through the aisle of the study room.



I should be getting strange looks from people because my goofy grin falls to close to the line separating normal and abnormal.



Instead... I'm subdued on my first day with time to myself. From about 10AM to 2:30PM, I have no commitments on Tuesday and Friday. My emotions are cut short of full-blown joy as a mixture of guilt, anxiety, and stress coagulate my… Continue

I'm an Odd One I tell You!

So is it weird that I listen to P!nk and Taylor Swift back to back? I

have these musical sides to me that I just don't know where they come

from. I have this hard you can't touch me side, but want to have this

soft vulnerable side to me as well. I'm so into music these days. I

seriously was an artist in another life. I used to dance, I used to play

guitar, I was in choir and used to sing and I used to play piano..then

for whatever reason, I stopped. But music still… Continue

Un Educated Mom.

I am the first to admit that I am a terrible writer, on the computer that is. I discovered most recently, that some moms judge one another by their poor grammar skills. I found this out after I made a comment on another blog, I won't say which one, but it wasn't on this site. The moms on Mom Blogger's have been nothing but kind and non judgmental of my writing skills,( or lack there of) so this is why I will keep my opinions here. I never… Continue
