I am no stranger of thinking negatively...from thinking I am the most unattractive woman around to thinking that the stranger next to me is a serial killer. Although, really, that last one might be more of a paranoid side effect of reading too many Ted Bundy true stories, along with living in Tallahassee, Florida years … Continue reading The Powers of Negativity
Tomorrow is the last day of NaNoWriMo 2015. I can't believe the month is coming to a close. November has been a month of ups and downs for me. It has also been the most depressing NaNoWriMo I have had in three years....but as Lily Tomlin has said, "The road to success is always under … Continue reading NaNoWriMo is coming to an end…
I struggle with finding the time to write. There are some months that I am proud of what I am accomplished. However, there are also months where I am overwhelmed with writing IEPs and exhausted from teaching and/or meetings at work. It is hard as hell to have four jobs. I said four, I know. Technically, … Continue reading Writing When Not at the Day Job
Today seems like the perfect reading day. I love a day where it is a little chilly out. Then I curl up on the couch and read a book (even if it is just during my son's naptime). So if you have just an hour like sometimes I do, go read one of my books. … Continue reading A Good Reading Day

I used to think my thirties were the best decade: I got married, bought a house, fell in love with teaching, self-published two books, was given an awesome opportunity to go to San Francisco for a photo shoot (DHC customer spotlight), and had the miracle … Continue reading Sayonara Thirties!!

However, it makes the thought of waking up tomorrow and going to work a hard one. I am excited to have the new … Continue reading The End of Summer
Guilt is in everything I do. Why? I am a mother, teacher, and a writer. Anytime that takes me away from my son leaves me feeling guilty. I envy those mothers that don't have this mom guilt. I truly do. Maybe I have so much guilt because I always wanted to be an at-home mom … Continue reading Guilty Writer
As a teacher, it is bittersweet that the school year has come to an end. I absolutely adore my students and their parents. I truly do. Due to being a career changer, I (at times) feel like I don't fit in with the "meant-to-be" teachers. They always knew they wanted to be a teacher. I … Continue reading Save the Puppy
I have abandoned many blogs in my years. I have come back to wordpress and I hope to stay. Maybe I get bored; maybe I cannot find exactly what I want and refuse to settle; maybe I am a bit crazy? Who knows. For those of you that don't know me...I am a writer, teacher, … Continue reading Hello yet again world!
