writing goals

I’ve been thinking a lot about writing lately.  A. Lot. I’ve always enjoyed it in its various forms. Dear Diary Journals Notebooks (the more grown-up version of the diary… or at least I thought so!) Writing papers in school (yeah, I liked that, too) Writing freelance standardized test questions (yes, that’s a thing!) Blogging I …

stop.

Last Friday, my son tripped, caught himself when he fell, and fractured his radius.  I knew immediately from the look of panicked pain on his face that something wasn’t right.  I had seen that look before, just two-and-a-half years earlier when his older sister fell off the balance beam at gymnastics class and snapped her …

motivated

Writing. It’s something that has been a part of my life for a long time.  I have kept journals and notebooks for as long as I can remember!  I love expressing my thoughts; the good, the bad, the ugly.  I love looking back at past journals and seeing how much has changed… how much I’VE …

July Gifts {Day Six}

new theme, opinions??

blogging has been my water

Well folks,  to the 3 faithful readers (note:  I always put three, but deep down inside I really do hope there’s more than just three…),  I’m so very sorry for my lack of blog activity lately.  Blogging has been the water in my jar for a week or so, and I just haven’t had the …

a nod to my obsessivity

If you’ve ever read the “gimme some love” section of my blog, you understand the obsession I have with checking numbers, stats, etc… Today was a big one. Today (drumroll please)  I went over 1000 visits to the blog.  Yep.  Exciting stuff.  Of course, when I visit other people’s, and theirs seems to go up …
