Challenge Completed

When I first came upon the 25 Day, 25 Song challenge I thought, “Wow! This looks fun!” and I decided to take the challenge on. Then I thought about seeing if anyone wanted to take the challenge with me, so I laid down the gauntlet for all bloggers to cross. Many of you accepted and … Continue reading

I Forgive, But Never Forget

“To err is human; to forgive, divine.” Alexander Pope There was a time when I was ruthlessly cold and callously unforgiving. In a little black box hidden in the back of my mind I stored the details of every time I’d been wronged. The sin. The offender. The anger. The hate. The belief that I … Continue reading

Rambling About Conflict

As it is wont to do, my mind wandered for some time after I went to bed last night. I realized I didn’t have a post ready for today, nor did I have any ideas what to discuss. I then had the following conversation…with myself. Twindaddy: You know, you haven’t participated in the Daily Prompt in … Continue reading

My Oldest Surviving Memory

[Editor's Note: For this month's Remember the Time, Emily and Kelly would like to know what our earliest recollection is. I had written about my earliest memory in response to a Daily Prompt  back in December of 2012, so I'm dressing this post up and adding a few things to it and making it seem like … Continue reading

In The Highest Esteem

Who is the person in your life who can do no wrong? Describe this person and tell us why you hold them in such high esteem. There is absolutely no one who can do no wrong. There is no perfect person.

We shopped for our weekly groceries and picked up a few things for Thanksgiving dinner. When we were finished we headed to … Continue reading

7 Questions With A Trooper

I met a new bloggy friend this past week: Suzie81. In the first post of her’s I read she was openly pondering whether or not blogging was inherently narcissistic, since most of us bloggers talk about ourselves so much. I’m not sure I agree blogging is narcissistic. What else would we write about if not ourselves? … Continue reading

Trypanophobia – A Horror Story

We all know we’re human pin cushions growing up. So much so that there’s a definitive schedule for when and how often you’ll get stuck. Immunizations. Booster shots. tetanus shots. Antibiotic shots when you’re ill. It seems doctors take some perverse pleasure in giving their nurses an excuse to poke you with a syringe. And … Continue reading


Mama talked Of catching fireflies Of barefoot walks Of family ties Of life’s hard knocks Mama asked About growing pains About present friends About childhood remains About making amends Mama knew All the sins I concealed All the lies I weaved All the times traveled afield All the ideas misconceived Mama noticed The black ice … Continue reading

Defrost Delusion

As a child, or even a young adult, common sense just isn’t common. We do things which befuddle our parents, teachers, aunts, uncles, and, well, any adult, really. I see this on a daily basis with my children. For instance, when we got home last Wednesday, I suffered through the following conversation with my younger … Continue reading
