The Day After

The weekend started with me waking up with a horrendous sore throat.  It had been bothering me for few days but I thought it was going to be just allergies and post nasal drip!...more

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to everyone. I was able to spend the day with Hubz and J while D was with her dad. It was a nice yet stressful day. J woke up on the wrong side of the bed and woke up in a mood to where she cried for about an hour. Nothing helped easing her so I eventually let her cry it out and was somewhat better after it all. Spending all day with my family made me feel whole again. After D came home from her dad's the girls and I went to my parent's house and while the kids swam I tried to remain calm and couldn't do it....more

This Wednesday....

This has been weighing on my heart for a while, and as I post about our upcoming wedding, the girls, and soon to be Hubz this is always on my mind. Of course I can't sleep so I am hoping that this helps ease my mind. I understand that posting this it will be available to the world but this is my truth and I need to say it.

I spoke to several attorneys and after explaining my financial situation I would not get any call backs....more

Night Lights ... a short story

Kara woke to the sound of thunder and the branches of the tree outside her window slapping against the clapboard. She walked to the window to close it and saw a light in the distance. Glancing at the clock on her side table, she knew it couldn’t be a light in the dock office. Ben had already locked up for the night after tying up and securing all the boats. He certainly wouldn’t be doing paperwork at 2:30 in the morning. The storm, although loud, was not serious enough to be a concern....more

To Schedule, Or Not To Schedule-THAT is the Question

 Life moves fast. One minute you are happily working at your desk, the next you could be dashing off to soothe an impatient customer or handle a family crisis.  The on-line world moves fast as well and will continue to hurdle forward whether you are available to monitor and cultivate your social platforms or not.That’s where helper tools like Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, and MarketMeSuite all come in handy. They help make our social media strategies feel not-so-much like a needy child and keep information flowing when we are not available to do so....more
