I’m Not Moving to Australia

I’m looking for a job. I’m a technical writer. I found the best job posting for a technical writer ever. So, I replied to it. I said, “I don’t know if you know this, but when that job description was written, it was written for me.” Yet, somehow, they still emailed me back. The recruiter’s … Continue reading

Nice and Beautiful, Part Two

Last week, Don’t We Look Alike gave me the Beautiful Mama Blog Award. I was not having a good day… week, really. In fact, life is pretty darn stressful right now. So, when I got the award, I chose to just let it make me happy. I knew there were requirements to go along with … Continue reading


We’ve started off summer break by being sick. Max got a cold and a wicked sore throat last Monday. I started getting the sore throat on Friday. On Saturday, I hid in bed because my throat hurt so much. When I looked in the mirror, the right side of my neck had one more chin … Continue reading


Today, I turned 36. Honestly, it wasn’t a very good day. I worked ’til 2 am, got to bed around 4, woke up at 10:45. Picked Jackson up from school, then he talked me into rollerblading while he rode his bike. (Rollerblading is really hard on my knee.) Jackson and I took Firefly (cat #3) … Continue reading

Family History: Talents

What are some of my talents? The first one that comes to mind is singing. I sing. I miss singing. I sometimes get to sing to Jack, but often times, he prefers to sing to himself. He’s definitely got the “I randomly burst into song” thing that I’ve got. I once told him, “Mommy almost … Continue reading

Family History: On My Own

Write about leaving the nest and the first time you lived away from home. I started college in August 1993, just over a month away from my 18th birthday. To say I was homesick is an understatement. For the entire first semester, all I wanted to do was transfer to UCLA. I even got the … Continue reading

Family History: My Favorite Year

This week, I decided to write the¬†Family History Tuesday post a little closer to Tuesday. This week’s prompt: What was your favorite school year ever? What about that year made school/education so good for you? Kindergarten was probably my favorite. I loved Kindergarten! I learned to read. I had a best friend (Dawn Lynn Workman). … Continue reading

Family History: Books and Movies

DesignZ by Dede is still doing the Family History prompts, and I’m still late in answering them. Write about what you like to read. What’s your favorite book? Write about your favorite kinds of movies to see. What are your favorites? My favorite book is Jurassic Park, by Michael Crichton. Don’t much care for the sequels, … Continue reading
