I have a dark sense of humor

I don’t know why, but I find it hilarious that people think clowns are scary. I understand why, because clowns have been used for years to convey a dark, murderous intent. “Look at me, kid. I’m harmless, have a lollipop–AAH”-bite your face off.So on Halloween, I decided I needed to be a clown. I wore…

Consistency

Does anyone else ever have a problem with this? Or am I the only wishy washy wacko around here? (I love alliteration) Some people are amazingly good at this. And I have to wonder–is it something that’s genetic? Or is it behavioral? A bit of both, perhaps? I’m pretty good at being consistent for a…

Free Association Exercise

I just thought I would see what I can come up with today. I missed a day yesterday, which was harder emotionally than it should have been. But I was busy all day long. I drive a lot. And I mean A LOT. My kids have school 20m away from my house, so I have…

My Imagination’s Broke

I try to spend time with my kids. Often I’m busy with things like housework, driving, cooking, laundry, etc. But I do try. My 5yo daughter only has school twice a week, so there are two mornings where it’s just me and her at home. She thrives on quality time together, so I try to…

Triggers

Life isn’t always cupcakes and rainbows, is it? Everyone has to go through trials, and I would even venture to say that we’ve all had to go through hell more than once while in this life. Trials are relative, methinks. What another woman goes through on a daily basis, I would break from. But some…

Summer vs. Winter

What is it about stormy weather that inspires writers? There’s just something about the rain, a good book, and a cup of your favorite cocoa/coffee/tea. I guess it doesn’t always apply only to writers in this instance. For me, there’s always been something adventurous and romantic about stormy weather. And I definitely prefer the cold…

Bath Time

Does anyone else find solace, sanctuary and comfort within the warmth of a hot bath? Because let’s be honest. If you’re taking a bath for the sake of getting clean, I I can think of a much better and quicker way. Much more sanitary, too. There are a myriad of reasons why my personal bath…

Review: The Count of Monte Cristo

WARNING: SPOILERS FOR BOOK AND MOVIE. Yesterday, I finished reading The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. I’ve owned the book for years and was excited to finally crack it open. It took me eight days to read it, and at the end I watched the movie with my husband. To say the book…

Video Games

As I stated in my post titled, “I’m Bored,” I was never allowed to play video games until after my parents divorced when I was 15 years old. My uncle bought my family a Super Nintendo for Christmas. I remember absolutely loving games like Donkey Kong Country, Zelda, Metroid, Diddy Kong Racing, Mario Kart, etc….

Fate’s Twists

Recently, we as a family decided that we are ready to get a dog. We researched breeds, bought all the necessary training tools, toys, food, treats a crate and a bed. We decided on the Hungarian Vizsla. They are a very loving and active breed that are supposed to be really good for active families….
