New Year-Old Traditions

Can-Ka No Rey I’ll be the first to admit, I’m weird. And that’s totally okay! You may judge me…but it’s likely not going to change my weirdness. Every January, I have this tradition. I begin listening to Stephen King’s The Dark Tower Series. And I do mean EVERY Year. Why? Hell if I know. It’s… Continue reading New Year-Old Traditions

Covid Weddings: My Experience

I realize many people have had to cancel, postpone, and downsize their weddings during this time of Covid. I’m so fortunate that we didn’t have to cancel or postpone my daughter’s wedding. We did have to downsize it. What that meant was many of our loved ones were unable to be present. Some may wonder… Continue reading Covid Weddings: My Experience

Students and Schools

I have a sophmore and a senior. We've been doing our very best in how we deal with non-traditional schooling. We recently learned that our city will be offering hybrid classes beginning in April.

Living with Monsters/Little Victories

Possible trigger warnings It's been a bit of time since I last blogged. Three days shy of an entire year. Obviously a lot has changed in our world. I'd like to say a lot has changed for me as well, but I have to think about that a little bit. The best way to think… Continue reading Living with Monsters/Little Victories

Shaken Book Review

Shaken (Mind Reader #1) by Susan Hatler I scrolled through the books on my Kindle and blindly chose this book to read. It was a generously ‘free’ download I’d acquired a while back ago. (Not sure exact date). It goes for $3.99 currently on Amazon. I strongly believe it would be a well-enjoyed $3.99 although it would… Continue reading Shaken Book Review

Unspoken Book Review

Unspoken by Kerrigan Byrne Warning: This is a novella, not a novel. It’s total length is about 60 pages give or take a few. I’ll admit I normally read the book blurb as well as others’ reviews before I go and decide to read a book. That doesn’t mean I won’t read it at all… Continue reading Unspoken Book Review
