I have been in this place before

I am THAT mother
Today I am THAT mother. I am that mother who cries in the staircase worried that I am just completely failing my child and making a mess of things. He cries and it grates on my nerves. He cries and flips because there is a paper bag on his seat and somehow...

Unwanted Advances
In the past 20 months, I have spent a lot of time involved in a couple of different communities.  One is the world of online dating, and the other is the sex-positive/alternative/poly community.  This has provided an interesting juxtaposition, as one of the...

A Heart Full of Love
Sam and Danny have been begging to go to Chuck E Cheese's for the past week. They've both heard of the place, and then last week on one of his camp field trips to the Skagit Children's Museum, Danny saw it. I knew when I picked them up from their other pare...

Passions
Like many things in life, passions ebb and flow. I have a habit of taking on a lot because I always want to say yes to ALL of my passions, and lately I've been trying to simplify. I've been working on teaching myself that I have to choose which things to co...

Absolute Truth
He holds me while I cry and whispers in my ear. The past two days in particular have been glazed with a steady flow of tears, wept for a multitude of reasons and to simply ease the pain inside me as well as they can.  Sometimes I think that there is a deep ...

Read in 2015
My goal in 2015 was to read 40 books and once again I didn't meet my goal.  The good news is that in 2016, I've been finding more time to read.  My kids are finally old enough that they occupy themselves more and I have been re-starting the habit of carryin...

His Name Was Sam Girouard
His name was Sam Girouard, and he would have been 34 last month. I met him when I was 16 years old, in classes at Whatcom Community College.  He was outgoing, funny, and had kind eyes and a joyful smile.  He was tall, over 6 feet, and gentle, and when I ima...

A new friend asked me what tattoos I have, and I thought - hey, I like having all of the stories and photos in one place, and I don't have a current gallery anywhere.  So, here they are!  As of May 2015 I have 8 tattoos.  I've been craving some new ink, and...
