Our stove died in November. It is now May and I still don’t have a new stove. Why? Because other things have either died or kaput in our home and those have taken precedence – also, we’re one of those “but what if there’s a better deal somewhere else?” kind of people, and so, I’ve… Read More Single Burner Survival: Chicken and Broccoli w/ Whipped Butternut Squash

You looked into my eyes last night, as we crossed paths toward the water. You smiled at me and I smiled back… I felt noticed and enticed. Your smile was warm and lovely, your eyes were warm and inviting, your fiery curls were pinned back but I could still tell how soft they are almost… Read More To My Scarlet Muse
Tuesday, March 21st, henceforth known as the absolute worst day of my life: I died. … Read More Goodbye, Caffeine
There are two types of people in this world: those who wake up in the morning and convince themselves that they’re happy and those who wake up and say, “Is this really the best that I can do?” … Read More Is This Really As Good As It Gets?
I’m getting there. I’m working towards a healthier, preferably smaller me. As I’ve mentioned time and again, there’s nothing wrong with being fat. But there is something wrong with being uncomfortable in your own skin.
And I’m just too damn gorgeous to be feeling that way.… Read More Weight Loss Journey
I’m very upset with the fact that I allowed myself to get this heavy again. I’m very disappointed in me. And because I’m too hard on myself, it’s difficult to lose the weight.… Read More I’m a Loser
Maybe that’s why I’ve been getting headaches! My creative energy hasn’t been spent on picture-taking, so I’m backed up. I have been working on a manuscript, however. But publishing a short story and showing Mom a picture of her kid that I just took is not the same. I enjoyed the instant gratification I would get with photography, and now that I don’t have that, I’ve been turning more to my blog and manuscripts, but it’s not the same! Getting “Likes” on Facebook are not as awesome as Mom going, “Wow! I did not think you got any good pictures!” I need the feedback! I need to be praised. And even though I don’t have that right now, I need to continue to work on my writing career to get there! If only I could get paid to update my blog. I’m sure those jobs exist. But I don’t think I’m interesting enough. … Read More It Might be a Tumor
Sometimes being a good parent means not becoming one at all. Like I said, I’m a selfish person. And if I have you, there will be times when you will hate me, Timmy, and that will break my heart – even though there will be times when I will hate you too; not gonna lie! – and I don’t want to put either one of us through that. So, I’m going to keep working on my life for me. … Read More Dear Timmy:
I’ve quit. I gave my notice a couple weeks ago, and my last day will be the 5th. I feel great! I also feel nervous. And excited. And terrified. More terrified, actually. It’s scary thinking that I’ll no longer drive an hour (sometimes an hour and a half) to Braintree, take pictures all day, then… Read More Goodbye, Picture People
