Audience of ONE

One of the most eye twitching scenarios you come across as a writer, is when you have written something that you think is a masterpiece and your loved ones barely raise an eyebrow to it. Or when you ask them have they read your article on "blah blah blah" and they say, "OH, I didn't … Continue reading Audience of ONE

The Mommy Mask

Since it's the month of costumes, I have some intriguing thoughts about a specific piece of costume that we wear. You know, as a mother it can seem like our title ends at "butt wiper" or "short order chef". Our tireless days and nights surround us endlessly and we can feel as if we are … Continue reading The Mommy Mask

The Mary Challenge Daily #6: Pray Pray and Pray Some More

The Mary Challenge Daily #2, 3, 4: The 3-3-3 Challenge

"Squirl!" is what I might as well be saying every time I am distracted by one thing or another while I am already supposed to be engaged in something else.

"How many shoes can one person pick up in a day?" This is a thought that frequently breezes through my mind as I am bending over to pick up the gazillionth (should totally be a real number) flip-flop off of the living room floor.
