When did it happen? I remember just a few years ago looking at my account balances and scrounging together enough change so that I could go out to the bar with my friends on Friday nights. Now? Now my Friday nights are spent chasing around a two year old and cooking dinner for my… Continue reading Becoming a Responsible Adult: My Dream Was to Grow Up
Life is supposed to be experienced with joy, and at this point in life maybe taking a moment to “stop and smell the roses” is the best advice ever given.
Lately I have been holding off on writing. It turns out that when I get really into something I unconsciously block out what’s going on around me.

Daily Prompt: Roaring Laughter The last time I had a good, gut-wrenching laugh was …too long ago to remember. The cause, however, is easy to recall.
