Living la vida lupus


I don't know how to write this so I am going to write this as if I am just talking to my friends. Okay? So many of you have followed me through this journey of trying to discover why I have been suffering for years with chronic daily (as in every single damn day of my life) headaches and … [continue]

Singing “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” was forbiddden and the rebel who broke the rule. But don’t tell.

Growing up the youngest of three kids, I had my fair share of being picked on but I gave my share of bratty back so it evened out. My sister is almost four years older than I am and though it appears that I could take her down in hand to hand combat, you would […]


…And it all started with headaches


“Sometimes your heart needs more time to accept what your mind already knows.” So many of  you have been so wonderfully kind with your emails, texts, calls, etc checking up on me and my headaches. I haven’t really known how to write about it. I mean, I have friends who are dealing with things that […]


I’m totally into Yoga now. The Lenovo Yoga 11s that is!

Just a glimpse of its 360 degree movements.

As a writer and blogger, one of my biggest challenges when traveling is which electronic devices to bring. I do all of my blogging and writing on a laptop. I read on a tablet which of course can get very heavy on my arms. I even like to watch movies to pass the time when […]


9/11 broke my heart. My trip to New York City stole my heart.


This is a post I shared last year but after I re-read it, I realized it still says and shares my heart’s thoughts. —— When I knew that I was going to be in New York City for a conference in August, the first thing on my mind was to go to the 9/11 memorial. […]


This might break the Internet. Just shut it right down, y’all.

This is why we can’t have nice things, y’all.  It is officially time to call a cab and go home because  you are obviously drunk, Internet. Last one online, turn off the lights.


Happy birthday, Mommy Needs Coffee! Also known as Holy Crap! She’s been writing this blog for TEN years!


I can hardly believe it but today is my blog’s TENTH birthday.  (And I almost missed it.)  Ten years I have been coming here and sharing my life with you. Let me put that in perspective a bit. My oldest son was only 9 years old. Still in elementary school. Now? He has moved out […]


You’re never quite ready for what life delivers you: Delivery Man- The movie


I have one brother and one sister. Growing up I wish I had a lot more of both. I had a best friend who came from a family with six kids and I thought that would be cool. Eight is Enough? That show made large families seem fun and full of activity. With three, you […]


I can’t spend it but it is worth more than anything money can buy

13 year chip

Look! I made it. With all of you and your help and a lot of pacing, nail biting, praying, and taking things one day at a time, I picked up this little gem.   Isn’t she pretty? I want to thank YOU for supporting me.  I have so much to share but THIS? This is […]


Addiction support makes all the difference in the world to an addict


This time of year is so hard on me. If you’ve been around here long enough, you know this about me. If not, let me explain. You see, on March 6th I celebrate the anniversary of getting clean. From pills. From an addiction that could have killed me. I can’t explain why I get so […]
