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: Breaking my own rules

SOC Sunday 2015

It’s Sunday and whether or not you attend some sort of worship service, I think Sunday is the ideal time for quiet reflection and a time to release a lot of what’s jumbled up inside our heads. Sometimes it’s a release. Sometimes it provides clarity. And sometimes, like this morning for me, it’s simply therapeutic. […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Indulgence and Deprivation

SOC Sunday 2015

Yes, it’s back. It’s Stream of Consciousness Sunday. Two things I’ve been missing in blogging lately: the ability to freely write and the sense of community. I had both of those when I hosted my weekly link-up, Stream of Consciousness Sunday. For those of you that have participated, starting next week, I’m bringing the link-up […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Helpless


I feel far away from writing sometimes. Like really writing. I have lots to write about. Cool trips, cool products. But when writing becomes too obligatory, it loses it sparkle and meaning. So I’ve been heading back to Jana’s Thinking Place to check on her Stream of Consciousness Sunday prompts. When I originally started the […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Love and Babies and Marriage

It’s conference season for me. I’m in Charlotte, North Carolina for the Type-A Parent Conference and having an amazing time (more to come on that next week). I’ll be heading to BlogHer in August. Not only does that give me a ample content for this blog but it also gives me the opportunity to listen […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: All About Dads

It’s Father’s Day. Let’s face it. There are a lot of dad issues out there. It just seems that it’s easier to find a good mom than it is to find a good dad. So do we really even need them? I gave some thought to my own dad and to my husband, the father […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Haven’t We Met Before?

Life is an experience, isn’t it? In a week, I’ve started to normalize. I have internet (thank God). I have a refrigerator and a washer and dryer. We still need the microwave but haven’t really missed it that much. And I’ve gotten enough unpacking done that it’s starting to feel good to go out and […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: The Internet is my constant

I waffled about writing a post for today. I just moved (yes, it FINALLY happened). I’m sick. And I have no internet. But I decided I wanted get out and see the community and see if there really was a Starbucks with internet close by. And I was in luck! Today’s Writing Prompt: How has […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Rearranging My Life

The house has officially sold. It’s a done deal. We closed on Friday and officially turned the deed over to someone else. But we haven’t moved yet. We’re renting our own house for the next 2 weeks. It feels a little weird because it doesn’t feel like someone else’s house. But at least the first […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Stop the Merry Go Round!

I usually write my post on Saturday night – usually late at night – and publish it shortly before I nod off to sleep. These days, I schedule it to post at 12:01am eastern time. Technically, it’s still Saturday for my West Coast friends but it’s already halfway through Sunday for my South Pacific friends […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: I don’t wanna…

Call it whining. Call it ranting. Call it first world problems. I have perspective but sometimes there are things you just don’t want to do. Maybe you’re tired or you need a break or you’d rather spend your hard-earned money elsewhere. But there’s got to be something you don’t want to do. I’m full of […]
