I Had An Epiphany…And It Involved Chili And Triple X

I had an epiphany today. Over chili. It was lunchtime and Hubby was out with the boys.  He called for our order and as usual, came home with way more than I’d asked for, including a cup of chili. I wrinkled my nose.  “Chili?  Why?” He looked surprised.  “You love chili, so I wanted toContinue reading “I Had An Epiphany…And It Involved Chili And Triple X”

Unrequited Love…At Three Years-Old?!

My two little boys are obsessed with girls. Cooper is marrying Gracie and George is in love with Juliet.   What the heck is going on here???  They’re 3 and 4!!!! Just as an aside, Lulu is 8 and has yet to utter a sweet word about a boy.  I hear about how rude and yucky andContinue reading “Unrequited Love…At Three Years-Old?!”

I Can Do Just About Anything With A Smile…Just Pop That Cork For Me, Would You?

Bath time isn’t fun.  It is AGGRAVATING.  And STRESSFUL.  I repeat myself, over and over, and nobody listens.  Corralling two little naked boys while I try to run the water and pull out the pajamas is like trying to corner a rat.  My blood boils and I struggle to keep the expletives locked up tight.Continue reading “I Can Do Just About Anything With A Smile…Just Pop That Cork For Me, Would You?”

Please Don’t Ask Me About The Shower Scene…

My house is crazy-noisy.  Like, ALL THE TIME. My husband and Lulu constantly break out into song…about anything that comes to their minds and at any given time.  Sometimes, they take turns with piano accompaniment.  Angry Bird telepods are forever sailing through the air.  Super Mario 3D World…UGH…the music alone makes my ears bleed afterContinue reading “Please Don’t Ask Me About The Shower Scene…”

The $25 Thumbnail…Pretty Cheap For Soft-Core

I’m OBSESSED with creating images for Unlikely Venture.  Gotta love the digital age!  One of my fabulous author friends (who is on the best-seller list for New Adult Contemporary on Amazon UK!!) sent me something she put together for one of her books and I decided I needed to create one for mine.  So theContinue reading “The $25 Thumbnail…Pretty Cheap For Soft-Core”

Oscar! Oscar! Best Actress Does Not Equal Best Dressed…By A Longshot

#TGIF.  Seriously. My first-pass synopsis for Unlikely Venture is begging to be trimmed but I don’t think I’m in the right frame of mind.  It is a lot of work for me to “trim.”  I am, by nature, long-winded.  I’ll never forget my editor’s feedback about the very first iteration of my manuscript.  She said,Continue reading “Oscar! Oscar! Best Actress Does Not Equal Best Dressed…By A Longshot”

I Do Love Being The Master Of Someone Else’s Destiny

I wouldn’t exactly label myself a control freak.  True, I like things done a certain way (fine, MY way) and in my time.  But it’s not like I fall apart if they don’t go according to my set schedule.  I may get a little crabby, but I’m not completely unreasonable or unyielding.  I’m just…regimented.  =)Continue reading “I Do Love Being The Master Of Someone Else’s Destiny”

InStyle Fashion and Beauty Round-Up…My Picks (And Pics)

I FINALLY had a chance to leaf through the current issue of InStyle.  Yes, the one I’ve been staring at for about a week and a half.  And I thought, hey, why not share some of my finds with my friends in cyberspace?? Not sure if I’m going to draw fire over this post sinceContinue reading “InStyle Fashion and Beauty Round-Up…My Picks (And Pics)”

We All Have Delusions Of Grandeur…Don’t Be Afraid To Indulge

Sometimes I wish I was more like Lulu. Yes, I admit I’m a little envious of her height, gorgeous thick hair and huge green eyes (sadly, none of which I can be held accountable for).  But it goes way beyond that.  She’s got such amazing self-confidence.  I’ve never met someone who was so comfortable inContinue reading “We All Have Delusions Of Grandeur…Don’t Be Afraid To Indulge”

“Kent Says There Are Fifty Ways To Win In Denver”

Silly me. Did I REALLY think that once George turned three he was going to magically be potty-bound for life? Um, yes, of course I did. I will pause here for a moment so you can enjoy a few snickers at my expense. It was a nice thought.  So far, we’re three for three.  I constructedContinue reading ““Kent Says There Are Fifty Ways To Win In Denver””
