2017, it’s hard to believe you’re almost gone. Only a few days left to celebrate the holiday spirit, and to be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about that. Celebration isn’t a word I would use to describe the past few weeks. We didn’t get the tree up and decorated until a week beforeContinue reading “Merry Christmas 2017”

Our 52 Stories Project
Yesterday, I mentioned one of my goals for March was to begin documenting a story the kids and I create together each week. Today was electronic-free day in our house, so I figured it was the perfect time to start. When we were finished, the kids were laughing so hard, I couldn’t understand anything they said,Continue reading “Our 52 Stories Project”
Hello, March! I’m So Glad to See you.
I asked for a February do-over, but I don’t think anyone heard me. You know what? It doesn’t matter now, because February is gone. Good riddance! And take your germs and viruses with you! I better not get too excited or that meme I saw the other day with sunny skies on Tuesday and a blizzardContinue reading “Hello, March! I’m So Glad to See you.”
February, VABruary, Same Same
“Sunshine isn’t good for your health. You know what you should do? Take it easy. Move to Sweden. Relax and enjoy the freezing weather and the crushing darkness that wants to eat your soul.” Said no doctor ever.
The Elf Wants to Retire
Our elf’s name is Wackack and he’s been with our family for about five years now. As I’ve mentioned before, the elf is a special tradition our family enjoys every year. He means a lot to us. Christmas is still magical for the children and that elf is one of the main reasons, not to mention itContinue reading “The Elf Wants to Retire”
Why Aren’t There More Pictures?
Earlier this week I wrote a blog post about the smell of books. Normally I try to use my own photos on my posts, mostly because it takes forever to find royalty-free photos. For that post, I knew I wanted something book-related, so I pulled out a few of my older books, and in oneContinue reading “Why Aren’t There More Pictures?”
What do you feel when you realize your child has Autism?
I’m going to veer away from writing discussions today and focus on something that’s affecting my life in a huge way, and that’s the realization that one of my children has autism. We’re still going through the diagnosis process, but last week the school doctor confirmed what we sort of already knew, that my daughterContinue reading “What do you feel when you realize your child has Autism?”
A Good Day
What a week! We’ve had doctor’s visits, school meetings, planning new meetings to meet our children’s needs, a lot of early mornings and late nights for my husband as his company continues with a crazy renovation project, coordinating schedules and rushing around, a few epic meltdowns, an intense battle between a dragon and a ninjaContinue reading “A Good Day”
Awesome is the New Judgment
If you’re visiting for the first time, you might notice my tagline says ‘Awesome Author of Imaginary Tales’. It says it on my business cards, too. Today, I want to talk about that word, ‘awesome’. No, I’m not entitled–at least I don’t think I am. Well, okay maybe, just a little. I believe if youContinue reading “Awesome is the New Judgment”
Why We Should Occasionally Ditch the Keyboard
How are the creative juices these days? Flowing strong? Or do you feel like a wilted apple tree? Not sure why I thought you might feel like a tree, but I think you get the general idea. In short, has your muse packed up and gone troll hunting in Norway?
