Stream of Consciousness Sunday: To Party or Not To Party?

SOC Sunday 2015

Writing on Sunday mornings feels so different than Saturday night. I’m glad to have some quiet time in the house to be able to stop, think, dump my thoughts for just 5 minutes. And then it’s back to clean up. You’ll know why when you read my stream of consciousness this morning. Here’s my 5 […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: On Psychics and Marriage

SOC Sunday 2015

It’s hard to just open your mind. When I think of doing a brain dump, it’s almost always about how I feel old or fat and how I want to do something about it but it all seems so hard and hopeless (mainly because I have no willpower). But who wants to read that every […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: It’s not always that easy

SOC Sunday 2015

The pressure you place on yourself can often be the worst of all. “What if I don’t post?” I asked myself over the past two weeks. And as I suspected, the world kept turning. We need consistency in our lives but we also need well-placed breaks. I hope you’ll forgive me of mine and join […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Hair, There, and Everywhere

SOC Sunday 2015

Last week, I wrote an interesting post about excitement and jumping into things, especially when they scare me. And then POOF! The post vanished. Completely gone, never to be found again. Maybe it was meant to be. Maybe those words were just meant for me. But this week, I’m making sure I hit save because I want […]

The Missing Post #SOCSunday

I wrote an entire post yesterday and I loved it. A full, random stream of consciousness. I felt inspired and was so excited to write it! Wrote it, scheduled it, and now… GONE. I can’t find it anywhere and I just can’t dump my brain again. The magic is gone. But if YOU want to […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: How Amusement Parks Keep You Young

When you’re visiting the “Sweetest Place” for a jam-packed weekend, it’s easy to get caught up in everything when you have the chance to eat chocolate at least once an hour. And while I’m taking away so much from my fantabulous weekend in Hershey, I’m oddly feeling younger than I have in a while. Here’s […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: In My Easter Bonnet

SOC Sunday 2015

I don’t think I’m obsessed with my childhood but I certainly write enough about it. You probably never even realized that I actually have blog categories for “Nostalgia” and “Growing Up.” Oddly enough, the latter isn’t about my son growing up. It’s about me growing up. I love to reminisce and when I do, I find […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: The Difference A Week Makes

SOC Sunday 2015

I might have had a little too much wine last night (it was for a good cause) and eaten a little too much of those incredibly delicious sugar and cinnamon hot pretzels and birthday cake. And it might still be 28 degrees outside but today, I feel the promise of Spring and the promise of […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Midlife on a Sunday Morning

SOC Sunday 2015

I always say that writing on a Sunday morning results in a much different post than when I write on a Saturday evening. Yesterday, I was in a bit of a funk and simply forgot about my post. And then this morning the internet was down and my site was down. So I guess this […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: I have a secret

SOC Sunday 2015

A busier than usual Saturday for me: a drive to Washington, DC to see a private screening of Cinderella (Evan and I loved it!) followed by a drive to downtown Baltimore to greet the new cast of the Listen To Your Mother show (May 9th!). And in between, a little shopping for a gala next week […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Reading is FUNdamental?

SOC Sunday 2015

I usually write my posts on a Saturday night because I just hate waking up to obligations. I will say that morning posts are definitely different than evening posts when it comes to my writing but with the time change (you did set your clocks forward, right?) I couldn’t even think about a morning post. […]
