I’M FACING DOWN THE OPPOSITE OF CREATIVE WRITING!

WHAT IS THE OPPOSITE OF CREATIVE WRITING? After staring at my keyboard for hours last night reading headlines, a few blogs, and playing too many phone games to mentally let go of my week, I went to bed.  BLOCKED BIG TIME! Somehow, while sleeping, I sorted my issues and found a resolution. DIVIDE AND CONQUER!…

DO I LOOKED FLUSHED? MUST BE HAVING A MB20 FLARE UP!

I suffer from an ailment common for women.  It strikes without warning and no vaccine exists.  It causes trembling, racing hearts, sweaty palms, hysteria, weak knees and passing out.  It’s Matchbox Twenty Mania! I’ve kept it under control, but tonight this Facebook post caused a flare up: Cut another song for the new Matchbox Twenty…

LEAPING INTO THE UNKNOWN!

I boldly committed to writing 365 words a day for 365 days, and leapt onto the page, typing enthusiastically until the screeching realization about 10 days into it, that 2012 actually has 366 days! Dang it! I could write 366 words for 366 days, or write 366 words every 4th posting. Perhaps I should blaze…

BEST DAY EVER – I WONDER AS I WANDER!

My son gave me a Valentine’s Day certificate for a day to do anything I want!  I carefully considered my plan, sorting events into two days – with or without kids. This reflects Part I of “My Day” (I go by hours, not calendar date). Picked up before cleaners: The early morning wake up, to…

THREE POINT TURN THURSDAY!

Today’s post showcased Boba Fett-ish undies that I NEED for my next running race: a leg of the 136-mile Olympic-style torch run to Comic-Con International (I’ve never been and only hope to attend once so why not?!). The evening quickly fell to the Dark Side while rushing my kids to overlapping baseball/softball practices. I tried…

CODE BLUE: EMERGENCY BLOGGING RESUSCITATION NEEDED!

WARNING:  Excessive whining causes narrowing of the mind, restricted creativity flow, cloudy vision and thickened skull. Tonight, after working a great first day at my new job, I left feeling confident in my position floating on top of the learning curve.  I couldn’t wait to get home for a great family evening. When I picked…
