The stench of frozen rotted meat is in the air! Welcome to the Winter of Zombie Blog Tour 2014, with 10 of the best zombie authors spreading the disease in the month of November.
Recently, I have been involved in a facebook discussion about a specific company and their practice of not providing contributor copies to the authors that work with them. Now, initially, I didn't even jump in to the conversation. I simply watched with interest as several authors and the publisher hashed it out. However, I started … Continue reading Horrified Press- Are you KIDDING ME?
Today is Spencer's Cancerversary. I like to think I made that word up. It has been exactly one year since he was diagnosed with Pre B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. One year ago today, Chris and I were informed that our little boy, who was going to turn three in two days had cancer. I … Continue reading Cancerversary
Two days ago, I called an informal meeting and gathered the guinea pigs...I mean the family. I presented them with an idea and after a couple rounds of eyeball rolling, they seemed to warm up to the idea. My plan, I told them, was to come up with a set of resolutions that … Continue reading Resolutions
6/22/2012 I have started the first portion of my journey. I have dropped off Spencer with my grandparents and have been dropped off at the Portland airport. I have passed through security, purchased some headphones so the poor person next to me is not subjected to Barry Manilow and am sitting at my gate unable … Continue reading Out of the Norm

I woke up at about two thirty this morning, changed the laundry over to the dryer and headed up the stairs to go to bed. No sooner had I walked into … Continue reading All the Way to the Scene of the Crash…
Today was a very, very, VERY long day. Not really an I've-been-working-all-day-on-lifting-boulders-the-size-of-Kentucky kind of day. More of an I've-been-sitting-in-office-chairs-all-freaking-day-long kind of day. My husband and I spent six hours at the Veteran's Administration today. That was for three appointments. My husband, who has been awake since 9 am yesterday morning, was running on 32 hours … Continue reading A Little V.A. Mayhem
We are watching back to back episodes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse this morning. Spencer loves the Hot Dog Dance at the end. He has also discovered (with my help) that he can watch the 'hot gog' dance on YouTube. We also watch Mana Mana and Beaker's Ode to Joy. He giggles so much! I went … Continue reading Hot Dog!
I am totally exhausted today. Last night, despite the fact that Spencer actually went to bed at a normal time last night, I was awake until 1 a.m. I am still reeling that my name was in Writer's Digest. I promise that I am not going to bring this up for the rest of my … Continue reading In a fog
