I'm a stay-at-home mom to one biological son (Grey Bear, or 'Took', 14 months), and 2 stepsons (Spawn, 16, and Pad --short for Padawan, or Padfoot, but NOT Prongs-- who is 5). I try my best to write a humorous blog, but one that is honest and uplifting at the same time. Sometimes I get dark (but dark humor is my favorite kind, so I guess that's okay!) =) I'm in the process of writing a book, I ADORE Shel Silverstein AND Dean Koontz, I've had a few poems published (many years ago) and several even made it to a spoken-word cd! Basically I'm just trying to figure it all out: How to be a good wife, a great mother, an almost-decent artist, a writer with a true voice, and an awe-inspiring interpretive dancer. (Belly coins around my waist would help IMMENSELY. *ahem* Chirstmas! *ahem*) Anything else you want to know, FEEL FREE to message me, leave a comment on the post you like, tell me what you think, what needs work, and IF you like it ~~PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS!!!~~~ Snugs! Dani

Some Pre-Turkey Day Thoughts, and a Reflection on the Year
A lot has happened this year. And as a result, there's a LOT that I've been thinking of writing about.   But I haven't put anything down on paper yet just because. . . I guess because it's just been too much. I didn't know where to start. . . . . I turned 4...

What AM I Gonna Tell My Kids?
Another day waking up with coffee and cats and internets. . . Another black man shot and killed by police. On camera. Y'all. . . . my soul is sick, and I don't know how much more it can take. There was a time in my life when I would have willfully tried to ...

The Balloon Incident, Or: Why I'm A Bad Mom (and possibly a bad neighbor, too)
About four years ago, my husband and I were expecting our first child together.  We had made the decision to leave our lovely (and tiny) little loft in Birmingham, and move out to McCalla. We found a nice little house, not-too-big, not-too-small, in a nice ...

Some people prefer lives of peace and solitude, and I am content to be counted as one of those.   I am, for lack of a better word, a home-body.  I like my peace and quiet ( treasure it!!!! ), and I don't get out and socialize with brand-spanking-new people ...

A Day In The Life of The Grey Took (Age 2 3/4)
I've been meaning to write a post for my baby boy.  A chronicle of what he does, on just a basic day, at the different stages of his life.  Primarily because he is NOT a "baby boy" any more. He has now reached the stage between "baby boy" and "Big Boy."  . ...

I've Got A Little Bit Longer. I've Got A Ways To Go.
I am feeling sentimental today. It is the end of the year.  Past Christmas, not quite to New Year's yet. . . and it has proven to be a time for rumination. So, in no particular order or form, here are some thoughts. ----------------------------------- I've ...

Music and Dreams. . .
For as long as I can remember, I have had a long, strange, and at times baffling relationship with music and dreams. And I am q uite serious.  And also:   I know. They're two completely, different (!), separate things. For most people. . . Except for me. . ...
