His “My Last Birthday”…

I hate to hear of people complaining of growing older. I feel annoyed when people “dread” their birthdays, but I have to be honest, and admit that I’ve been one of those people for the past couple of weeks.

Missing In Action

It’s been awhile since my last official blog entry. I’ve been spending more and more time working on my poetry, which I love, but I’m horrible to share on all platforms.

The Reality of Parenting Guilt…

It’s hard for me to admit that maybe I haven’t always been the kind of mom I’ve wanted to be. So, here is what I know, with every fiber of my being, I know my son knows how much I love him. I know I’ve done my best and I know he knows that, too.

Doesn’t get more transparent than this! Not my best moment. Still, somewhat amusing. Mostly sad. #dreambig #petnames #singlegirlproblems #lowpoints #dogsarecoolthough #boysaredumb
