BOOM, Baby! NaNo Is Here!

BOOM, Baby! NaNo Is Here!

Sorry for the post blackout. Last week of October meant getting blitzed with end-of-season marching band events, end-of-regular-season football games, Halloween, a family emergency, and a visit from The Niece.

Stella, bella stella…

Stella, bella stella…

I know, I know. I’m so behind. Busy life, I tell ya, so I’m playing catch up again. Four poems, one at a time, coming your way. Please forgive me. But I promise, it’s going to calm down soon. October is almost done and November will be here this weekend. One more football game/marching band …

Overworked and Overwhelmed: The Ballad of the Modern Day Mom

Overworked and Overwhelmed: The Ballad of the Modern Day Mom
