Dark Twists and Surreal Turns: new book!

I don’t know about you, but I have been super busy this quarantine. After I work on my classes all day, recording lectures and making online assignments, and of course, online meetings, I wind down by working on my writing biz. I try to write a blog a day, and do a little writing on […]

100. Puppy rug compromise

This is my 100th post. After this I am going to stop using numbers in my titles. I did that mostly to keep myself focused and keep this blog alive for 100 posts—it seemed like a good number to test whether I had the chops or not for blogging. Now that I have, and have […]

99. Cooking Skills: Baby Ninja Level

So my cooking skills are definitely improving—I only made one blunder (well, actually two) in my cooking endeavors in quarantine. The first blunder: I was following a recipe for chicken and rice, with chicken broth and the whole shebang. I cut up a raw chicken breast, started cooking it in a pan on the stove, […]

98. You are a warrior

I know some people are scared with this pandemic going on. While I’ve been enjoying all the alone time, there’s been instances where I wondered about the future: how will all of this end up? Will more people die, or will there be a happy ending? The most confident person saying modern medicine will prevail […]

97. Kitty Mischief

There is nothing more relaxing than typing away with a kitty in your lap. Of course, you are obligated to not move anyway to make sure the kitty jump doesn’t off, but it is soooo cute when they sit in my lap and look at me with a trusting gaze. Elsa currently sits with me, […]

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 […]

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 […]
