Busy, Busy, Busy

Busy, Busy, Busy

I’m insanely busy these days. I’m helping a very ill family member, work is at its height of chaos and my kids, just with homework and their only sorta busy schedule, are keeping me on my toes. Besides that, we have quite a few volunteer obligations to uphold. Everything happens at once. Isn’t it the […]

It’s fall! It’s either my first or second favorite season. Fall feels like such a nice break after the heat of the summer. Spring is supposed to be about fresh starts and renewal, but fall is the same way. I’m sure it’s got something to do with the start of school and hectic schedules, but […]

Welcome to Augusta

Welcome to Augusta

Imagine this. My mother-in-law (MIL) is talking to our cousin about family happenings. There’s a baptism, school started back, we recently had a funeral, soccer season has begun and my husband is in Oklahoma. The conversation went something like this. “Yeah, he’s in Oklahoma alone!” Cousin replied, “What’s he doing?” MIL explained, “Well, he’s either […]

The Olympics have taken over my life. I leave the television on all day. I’ve moved one to our screened porch so I can swelter with cold beer and watch at night. If you see the faint blue glow coming from our porch, stop on by. Just don’t talk too much while anyone is performing. […]

College Rules

College Rules

Twenty-one years ago, I was packing for college. I don’t care that you now know how old I am. Don’t do math? I’m 39. Age is but a number, anyway. Twenty-one years ago, I knew so much more that I know now. With each passing year, I’m happy to admit that I am, in fact, […]

If we survive this election season without killing each other, it’ll be a miracle. I should rephrase that. If y’all survive this election season without killing each other, it’ll be a miracle. As a general and well-followed rule, I don’t discuss politics. Period. A wise friend once said, “No one ever convinced me of anything […]

Cutting the Cord

Cutting the Cord

“How did you survive?” “Don’t you miss it?” “My husband won’t let me.” “We won’t have what we want.” “I don’t know what we would do without it.” Let me be the first to tell you, you will survive. You might occasionally miss it. You will definitely survive. I’ll help you convince your husband. You’ll […]

Pokemon… Go?

Pokemon… Go?

I’m admittedly out of the loop. It happens to me from time to time, and when it does, I feel like an old fogey. I read Buzzfeed daily. I love the Onion. CNN sends me alerts when there’s breaking news. I talk about current events with my friends and family. I don’t do Twitter. Full […]

It’s summer in Augusta. It’s hot. That’s a fact, not a complaint. However, when it hits triple digits with humidity for good measure, I might even complain. I’ll try not to. This is the south after all. It gets hot in the summer. If you ask me, that’s much better than having a terribly cold, […]

Buried in Books

Buried in Books

I loved reading when I was a child. My nose was always buried in a book. Remember the series from the late ‘80s and early ‘90s? I tried to start a Babysitter’s Club several times. The Sweet Valley Twins, Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield, were the most beautiful girls I’d ever heard of. I wanted to […]
