Day 8 – Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.

Oh sweet, sweet day 8. I’ve been waiting for you, my friend. Day 08 → Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit. Now where should I start? Virginia – Not the state, the boss. Right out of college I worked for an evil woman named Virginia. She was everything bad all […]

Day 7 – Someone who has made your life worth living

The prompt reads “Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for”. I have to admit, I’m having a lot of trouble concentrating on writing about it because this sentence ends in a preposition. Also, how can I only pick one? My husband? My daughter? My son? My best friend? My Mom? […]

I Voted

I voted today. I vote in almost every election and I am proud and honored to do so. I love being a part of the political process. But mostly I am just pleased that I will stop getting phone calls from recorded messages five times a day. Those really piss me off – especially when […]


I was a music minor in college. I majored in Political Science, but I hung out with a lot of music students. I mean no disrespect for my own, but the music majors were more interesting, and to be honest with myself I had to work a lot harder at my minor than I did […]

Day 6: Something you hope you never have to do.

Something I hope I never have to do? That is easy. I never want to have to bury my child. I don’t think I could live through it. In fact, I think I would prefer to have my entire family outlive me. I don’t even like typing it here. It seems like tempting fate. I […]

Day 5: Something I Hope to Do in My Life

Oh day 5, I like you. Something I hope to do in my life? That is not a scary writing prompt, and thank you for that. This will be a happy post as my goal is attainable. Maybe not easily attainable as I have to actually leave the country to do it. I assume it […]

Day 4: Something I Have to Forgive Someone For

Day 4 of the 30 Days of Truth is something I have to forgive someone else for. This is hard. It is hard for two reasons, the first being that I am not comfortable with this level of intimacy on my blog and the second being that I am not very forgiving. You see, this […]

Day 3: Something I Have to Forgive Myself For

I’m not perfect. I can’t do everything. There, I said it. I don’t like it. I want to be able to do everything. I want to be everything for everybody. I want to be the best mother, wife, friend, neighbor, writer, salesperson, blog citizen, volunteer, singer, supporter of the arts that there is. I want […]

Day 2: Something I Love About Myself

I guess I should have explained why I was writing about hating myself the other day. It’s a meme. I know. You are probably already gone, but if you are still here let me explain. I am going to try to do this 30 Days of Truth thing. Meme sounds so boring. Let’s call it […]
