Just Not Feeling It

You can tell when I am in this rut, although I am not really feeling down and out because I have an amazing support system in my immediate life, I just feel different. It’s as if I am just in a daze, maybe it’s due to Papa passing and having to use all of my strength to be there for my oldest during her grieving process or maybe it’s simply because I have this tendency to make myself be stronger than I need to be. The love in my life aka Lee, was telling me the other day that I […]

Proud Mom Moments: Spelling Bee

My daughter is such an overachiever, I think she is much like me in that we get our mind set on something and refuse to do anything but our absolute best.

The Night Owl Inside Makes for Creative Mind

I am a night owl, always have been and probably always will be. It’s just something about the quiet night time hours that really assists in allowing your mind to wander and then settle upon those questions you have through out the day about where life is heading. Once my children are fast asleep I find it difficult to settle down to bed right away, usually I am awake past midnight writing blog posts or, as of recently, reading a good book. Now that both of my sons actually sleep through the night on a more consistent basis I am […]

Drawing a Blank But I Played with My Webcam

I sit down in my office fingers ready to type and yet my mind is drawing a complete blank. What will I write about?

Tips for Teaching Writing to Children

Written By: Kathleen Thomas As adults, we think of writers as people who write books or create other written works.

These feelings often originate very early in life—possibly from the time they first began experimenting with letter writing and were told their efforts didn’t mean anything.   Writing and drawing seem to be almost as much a part of natural development as walking and talking. It is […]
