TV or Not TV?
  The day the earth stood still, sort of began months ago.  Our television, like so many of our possessions, was old. It was also analog, big, heavy and people were starting to look like Donald Trump. Even we had to admit it was time to replace old bessie. ...

Once a year, whether you need it or not....
   It occurred to me that we, as a family, only take a vacation once a year for one week, whether we need it or not! That’s not    a lot of time off. I am a stay at home mom and my spouse gets three weeks off each year. While it’s true that I try to get him...

Drawing a blank
  I have often heard people say that a writer should be writing. They are referring to the discipline required to complete a project.  This is great, especially if you’re working on a novel or your job actually involves writing. What if you’re only writing ...

The Family GPS
   It appears that I am the family GPS. “Mommy, can I have my Pokemon Book, my dog pen, my slippers, my hat, my ‘you name it’ ?” I have no goddamn clue what my girl did with most of her possessions yet somehow I am expected to know where they are. My husban...

Small Victory
   Recently, when faced with yet another joyful episode of getting our daughter ready for school, I found a way to fix my problem. Upon approaching the body, I checked the clock. Luckily, there was enough time to execute my plan. I climbed into her bed and ...
