The Skeletons in my Closet

They hung around for more than 30 days.  They made passerbys wonder who lived in our house.  What kind of crazies are they?  The ritual to spook up our home for fun, done and gone.  And just like that, the time has come to put our witches, goblins and skeletons back in the closet.  Our favorite holiday was enjoyed to […]

In the Midst of Chaos

Sometimes stress makes me feel like I can’t breathe.  And before I elaborate let me preface this post by saying that I am a very positive person.  I don’t like to complain not only because there aren’t many that will listen (smile) but because I prefer to look at the bright side of things.  People describe me as happy go […]

My Brain Is A Speed Train

A million thoughts a minute, here and gone, what was I thinking?  Where’s my to do list?  Oh, right, it’s in my head.  Yeah, the one that forgets every other minute of her thoughts because they are as fast as a speeding train.  I have to prepare my daughters birthday party invitations, find a place to print some business cards […]

Music, My Savior

Luther Vandross, Kem and Anthony Hamilton playing in the background as I sit at my computer, trying to come up with a subject to write about.  Coming into my space this evening, on a low note, all of a sudden feeling real good.  Vibing and jamming to that old school R & B.  All of a sudden a new song […]

To Do or Not To Do

I’ve tired my friends out with my re-hashing of thoughts.  Mulling things  over for eternity.  Unable to decide and without the means to make something happen.  I don’t know why I am this way, but I sure wish I could change this about myself.  I can be so un-decisive that by the time I come up with an acceptable solution […]

Fear of Summer Camp

Fear can be debilitating and it creeps back into my mind taking over my brain every so often even though I know I should not live fearfully.  As a parent, we worry about our little ones, wondering if they are safe when we are not with them.  My son started summer day camp today and I stressed myself out over […]
