It’s time to get real

Weekly writing assignment from Mama Kat: “Let he who hath no sin cast the first stone…” Is there anything you have judged prematurely, only to find yourself walking in the same shoes later? I’ve noticed that it is much, much easier to find others’ faults than to acknowledge our own. But the truth is, upon … Continue reading

A little too much excitement

While not nearly as busy as last weekend, this one definitely had its fill of interesting moments. Let me break it down for you. Friday night, I left a low-key cookout to attend a friend’s birthday party at a local hole-in-the wall bar. Probably not a genius move, but I wanted to take part in … Continue reading

Crawfish, fishing poles and an Irish pub

Y’all… I cannot tell you how ecstatic I am that the weekend is nearly here. In a few short hours I’ll be done with work for two glorious days. It’s not that I don’t enjoy my job. I do. But good grief, do I ever need a break. And I have a feeling that this … Continue reading

The key is love. And laughter…

Weekly writing assignment from Mama Kat: Describe how your relationship with your spouse is different than the relationship your parents had while you were growing up. Okay – so let’s be honest here: I don’t have a spouse. Not even a fiancé. In fact, at this particular point in time, I don’t even have a … Continue reading
