Easy Button

I need an easy button. 
 
Running errands yesterday on less than a quarter tank of gas, calculating how much cash I have to spend, how much I’ve spent, how many more gifts I need to buy, how can I make due with what I’ve got, and can I make it to the cheap gas station before [...]

Time In The Bustle Of Christmas

Dashing through the store
With my cart leading the way
‘Or the aisles I go
Laughing all the way!
Here and there I dart
Searching for a steal
Oh what fun it is to shop
And find the perfect deal.
Oh…Jingle bells
Jingle bells
Jingle all the way!
 
‘Tis the season for crazy drivers, holiday deals, gift wrapping, cookie baking, carols, parties, gifts, cards, hustling [...]

Smashing Pumpkins

When pumpkins start popping up at local farms and grocery stores I get giddy anticipating our annual visit to the pumpkin patch.  I visualize what our front porch will look like with a big fat splash of fiery pumpkin orange.  Ultimately, this image triggers a memory of a pumpkin I had in college.  My one moment [...]

Quotable

I love quotes. 
 
When I was in high school I would often daydream of perhaps being quoted someday.  Surrounded by notebooks and journals stuffed with poems, thoughts and long, hand-written emotional expressions, I would imagine one day someone discovering this treasure trove of language genius, and then quoting me.  In fact, armed with my pen and [...]

Off The Wagon

When Mama’s sick life comes to a screeching halt. 
 
Three weeks ago I decided it was time for Jackson to say “bye, bye” to diapers and “hello” to the big boy potty.  We bought him super cool pull-ups and made any venture to the bathroom a reason for a full-blown party, treats included.  He was catching [...]

My Nose Job

I had nary a care in the world until it was pointed out to me in the sixth grade that my profile was the same as that of a large Greek man.  Then it was again reiterated to me in high school when I was called “Parrot Nose Hayburn” (this didn’t go over so well [...]

Strike A Pose

Once upon a time I was a model.  Try as you might to find a picture of me hidden in the pages of an outdated fashion magazine or in a pile of resume head-shots, you will only end up disappointed (perhaps) and confused.  Stating, “I was a model” is using the term “model” very loosely.  [...]

It’s ‘Go’ Time

The countdown is on.  School starts in (a little over) a week, and I can already feel a slight shift taking place; not just in our home, but in the weather too.  I find myself waking up to a familiar autumn chill and, if I could actually smell, the scent of transition lingering in the [...]

Wonder Woman

At the tender age of six I received my first pair of “Underoos”.  They were Wonder Woman.  When I donned this remarkable underwear ensemble, I felt powerful and unstoppable.  My little sister, too, received a matching pair.  Together we were a force to be reckoned with.  We would run around the house, wearing only our [...]

High-Strangeness

I learned a new term the other night watching ABC’s “The Outsiders”.  It is called, “High Strangeness”.  This term is used to describe those individuals who have been abducted by aliens, or “Close Encounters Of The Third Kind”.  If you are starting to hear the soundtrack of the X-Files playing in your mind, have no [...]
