Stuck in the Middle

I’m having middle age, midsection issues. My resting belly has pretty much had the same shape as it did with both pregnancies – I looked like I was shoplifting a watermelon, despite years of working out, and in particular, the previous almost three years of Pure Barre and endless planks and crunches and sit-ups, which [Read On]

How The Hell Is It July Already and Other Thoughts on Life During The ‘Rona

I feel like it’s been over-said today, but how the hell is it July already? I mean, it seems like it was only last week that I couldn’t get flour or butter or bread or Lysol wipes at the grocery stores. (I’m still searching for Lysol wipes.) Speaking of butter – I still have two [Read On]

Fear of Commitment, Indecision, and #The100DayProject

“If only I had more time, I could finish this book…” Lies. Lies. Lies. The reality of the situation is that I have plenty of time. What I don’t have, on the other hand, is plenty of concentration. I also have a bit* of anxiety and a hell of a lot of fear of failure. [Read On]

Book Review: The Hollows by Jess Montgomery

I fell in love with an earlier fiction book written by author Jess Montgomery under her given name.

The Hollows is the second book in her new [Read On]

On Accomplishments, Goals, and Donuts

On the internet, the question has been (repeatedly) raised: “There’s only ONE MONTH left in the decade. What are your accomplishments? “ This question has been weighing on my mind, and perhaps if it had been worded differently, as in “what have you done” versus “what are your accomplishments”, it wouldn’t niggle at me so [Read On]

One Last NaNoWriMo Attempt with Pants(ing)

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. Well, here I go again, down the same path of insanity, but this time I’m hoping for a different outcome than the last by changing up one little thing. Kind of. What is this path, you [Read On]

Exploring ORIGINS at the Perot Museum

Sitting in the Hoglund Foundation Theater at the Perot Museum yesterday, I listened as Professor Lee Berger explained that the discovery of Australopithceus sediba began with his then 9-year old’s comment: “Dad, I found a fossil.” That moment would eventually lead to this moment at Perot Museum of Nature and Science. They, in partnership with [Read On]

Ten Things That Make Me Stupidly Happy

Kat Bouska has a prompt on her blog that asks for ten things that make you happy. It was a really appealing idea as there’s so much going on in the world right now that make me angry and sad. Note: I try not speak of those things because if you need to hear about [Read On]
