Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Feeling better

*I found my personal empty tank stemmed mostly from an empty brain. I know this because as soon as I started writing my paper, I started to feel a lot better. That, and Ryan ran a few errands for me today, which helped a lot. My homework was to read the play "A Raisin in the Sun" and then answer one of the three prompts. I didn't like any of the three prompts. So I was stuck. I ended up with a four and a half page paper with the title "Pride Before the Fall: Hey, Director! What's my Motivation?" detailing that although Bennie and Mama seem prideful, they are just immature and dignified (respectively) and that only Walter is truly motivated by pride. Whew! Can I just say that I'm glad the rough draft is over? That's the hardest part for me.
*I was able to buy Kacy some pants at a second hand store, as well as Ed so that they won't be in shorts when it's freezing outside.
*Playgroup was futile today in terms of playing, but everyone signed up for a date, so that's good.
*And, I voted. I probably won't be on the winning side of anything, but I figure I'll be entitled to complain. That's my rule: if you don't vote, you don't get to complain.
*Kacy said that "We should have root beer at least once a day."
*Jessie has a fever again and doesn't feel good. That's why I'm blogging- she fell asleep on me and I can't move. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! (She really does have a fever...)


  1. I read "A Raisin in the Sun" in college. I didn't mind the play so much but the professor had this policy that you actually had to participate in discussion. And he gave points based on what you said. It was a fight just to get called on in that class and then hope that I said something significant that might earn me half a point. Why couldn't I get the drama teacher that just let you watch movies?

    Hope things are settling down a bit for you.

  2. I have the same rule, only complain if you actually vote! If not keep your mouth shut! I have adopted your theory, adapt not adopt and am teaching it to my kids. So you may hear me say it frequently, I will try to always give you credit. Your a very smart woman!
