What is underneath the tarp on the blood-spattered floor??

I write mostly horror short stories, blog quirky stuff, and keep up with my full time and part-time teaching jobs. I am also a little obsessed with cats–this picture is one of my kitties Socks hiding under a tarp. With the help of Photoshop, he instantly became Darth Kitty.

By the way, I am having a pandemic sale for my stories and tidbits–50% off everything. Check it out–you might find a story or two to keep you entertained; Netflix can’t last forever.

96. Dream Day: Flying to survive

Waaaay back in the day, when I was in grad school and under a lot of stress and pressure, I had a lot of vivid dreams. I recalled them pretty decently, so I decided to make a dream journal and record them all. I rediscovered the journal last week and decided to polish them up […]

95. Pinterest Galore

So, more on using Pinterest. I have always been an avid user of Pinterest. I use it all the time to build up my boards for memes and interesting photos to show in my classes. There are soooo many pictures related to science and they definitely pique my students’ interests. Plus how fun is it […]

94. Grocery Run

So two Fridays ago we were having a professional development day at my high school, and emails about the corona virus kept showing up in our inboxes, eventually ending with the big one that our spring break was going to be extended. I had planned on using the Walmart grocery pickup app to pick up […]

93. Sheep at work

So my husband came home from a job for a school district with an interesting story a few months ago: While he was in the main office, a woman walks in with a baby sheep. She checks in with the front office staff, asking if anyone needs help, and the sheep just followed her around […]

92. Writing Update

I’ve got some new stories in the works. So this week is my high school’s spring break, and like so many other schools in Texas, we are extending our break out. Which means lots of writing time! One is completely written and is in the polishing stage. It will be a novella instead of a […]

91. Washing Cats

When we were working on our hardwood floors, my husband was laying down vapor barrier one day and our kitties, Socks and Elsa, thought it would be hilarious to jump around and knead on the barrier, putting little holes in it. My husband kept shooing them away, and they kept coming back. He tossed their […]

90. Wash your hands

There’s been a lot of fear and nervousness around the corona virus outbreak, so I figured I would do a post on what I tell my students when they ask. Wash your hands. The best thing to protect yourself if you do get the virus, or anything for that matter, is to wash your hands. […]

89. Sewage

Sometimes bad days just happen. One Christmas Eve we were coming back home late at night, happy, laughing, and looking forward to spending the holiday with more family. We walk into our house, and all seems well. My husband decides he is going to take a quick shower. I’m bringing in our dogs from letting […]

88. Building off failure

Inventing is a numbers game. Edison said it the best, “I found 10,000 ways not to make a lightbulb.” Nowadays, you can google how a lightbulb works and it seems like common sense. But when candles were the only source of light at night, no one had a clue how a lightbulb worked. This resonates […]

87. Haunted House

I’ve been inside a haunted house. Once, when I was in undergrad, other students told the story of a teenager who murdered his parents and burned down the house. I didn’t believe it might be true until one of them told me where to find the house remains. I got chills. That conversation always stuck […]
