Evernote

I spent the last week of 2021 organizing my entire life. Also battling Covid with hot ginger tea, Netflix, and NyQuil, but let’s not talk about that. Actually, let’s talk about that, really, really quick. First off, Covid sucks. For all of the reasons. Second, there are so many good shows on Netflix. Like, so … Continue reading Evernote

Breaking Ground

To celebrate 2022 arriving, I would like to take a moment to stop and appreciate the craziest purchase I made in 2021. Weird, right? Don’t worry. It gets weirder. Know why? In 2021, my husband and I bought . . . an aircraft hanger. Are you shocked? Horrified? Intrigued? So was I. What happened was … Continue reading Breaking Ground

A Day In The Life

I am a full-time writer. I’ve mentioned that about a million times on this blog, along with noting that I run my own business as a freelancer. But today, I’d like to dive a little deeper into what that looks like on a daily basis.I’ll give you a hint. I don’t actually spend my entire … Continue reading A Day In The Life

Who Has Time To Read???

No, really. Who has time to read? And can I borrow a little bit from you? I promise to pay it back the next time I have a few spare minutes. Which will probably be next year sometime. Actually, I’ve had more time to read lately than I think. I’ve finally finished with wedding planning, … Continue reading Who Has Time To Read???

Finding Rhythm

Guys. I think my life is settling into something that semi-resembles . . . normality. How do I deal with this? What do I do? Nothing has been normal for the last . . . let me think . . . three months? Give or take? Man, planning a wedding will take it out of … Continue reading Finding Rhythm

Potstickers and Pasta Dough

I’m on a dough shtick. Pasta dough, mostly. With a few dumplings thrown in. Okay, what are those things actually called? Dumplings? Potstickers? Momos? I have like ten different names for them in my head and everyone calls them something different and every time I say a name, I’m wrong. As you can tell, it … Continue reading Potstickers and Pasta Dough

Introvert Recovery 101

I had a crazy week. Like, really crazy. First of all, I spent all five work days at conference centers, attending—and presenting—at meetings. Which meant a lot of talking and a firehose of information. Stories were planned. Characters were examined. Exciting things happened. I think I survived. I haven’t checked yet. Secondly, we had quite … Continue reading Introvert Recovery 101

Who Has Time To Read??

This week, I spent Friday night nannying at someone’s house. Because I party hard, ya’ll. I don’t normally nanny anymore, mostly because I work forty hours a week in an office, then get home and work on side hustle/personal career/books until I go to sleep. But this particular job fell into my lap, and I … Continue reading Who Has Time To Read??

Mermaids

I saw a mermaid this weekend. Actually two. Real live actual mermaids. Okay, not actual. But definitely real live mermaids. Okay, it was two actresses wearing costumes and taking pictures with the kids at the Denver Aquarium. But you were not there, so technically, you can’t prove that they weren’t real live actual mermaids. And … Continue reading Mermaids

Adulthood is a Myth

My sister sent me an awesome birthday gift this week. A Sarah’s Scribbles 2020 calendar entitled Adulthood is a Myth. I felt that one to my soul. Not only was it strange to remember that next year is 2020, but the calendar also has the added advantage of making me laugh at myself. Because adulthood … Continue reading Adulthood is a Myth
