Sometime today it dawned on me that I had broken my agreement to post every day this year. I did not post yesterday and didn’t even think about it. I thought this was strange since my blogging has become so habitual. At first I was angry with myself for breaking my agreement. Then I remembered, … More Not Too Shabby
My counselor gave me a journaling assignment today. She asked me if I had ever journaled and I told her that I write every day. Although it isn’t technically a journal, this blog often serves the same purpose. It lets me get my thoughts out of my head where I can then look at them … More Out of Hiding
I’ve been really “stuck” the past few days. When I am in this mode, I play a lot of Solitaire. It gives my mind something to do that doesn’t require any emotional involvement. So tonight, rather than spending a lot of time thinking about my blog topic, I am going to go play Solitaire. Maybe … More Solitaire
It is after 11:00 PM. I have had a very full day and just got out of a seminar. In order to complete my writing agreement before midnight, I am sitting in a parking lot at a Taco Bell, composing this post on my phone.

I had been reading another blogger’s tips and was inspired to write this post rather than “saving it for later.” Because I had forgotten to create a password for the two-step authentication security setting on my WordPress app … More Frustrated!
Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis will notice the drastic change in my theme. As part of the current blog challenge in which I am participating, I was encouraged to change my blog’s look. My favorite color (or non-color, I should say) is black. Most of my wardrobe is black … More Out of My Comfort Zone
I guess I am catching up from an emotional weekend, as I scraped myself out of bed at 10:00 this morning. I managed to get caught up on some email and sort of cook dinner (tuna salad sandwiches and soup). I helped my son with homework and here I am, at the end of the … More Simply Keeping My Commitment
As the day comes to a close, I try to come up with some poetry or prose. Trying to think of something witty, but the words just aren’t there… it’s such a pity. So I guess I’ll retire for the night… get some much needed rest for this writer’s plight. And tomorrow I will try … More Writer’s Plight
