I Knew Better

It was a foolish thing to do. I knew better. But I did it anyway. I got home from work. Mason had decided to spend the night at his daddy’s house. I think he is realizing how much he will miss his daddy when Charlie moves to Florida. So how could I say no? And…

The Cars In My Life – Part One

Continuing with my questions from Joey, he asked “What was your first car? What was your favorite car when you were young?”. I had no idea until I starting writing that those questions would bring back so many memories. The first car I can remember was a white four-door Rambler that daddy and mama drove….

Don’t Shoot Me Yet!

First of all, I want to say that I love my mama. I love her dearly. She is my friend and my mama. She is precious to me. Absolutely precious. That being said, oh … my … God! I feel that I should go ahead and apologize to my children while I am still of…

My Selfish Mistake

Joey tells me that I should write about whatever is on my mind. To not worry about anyone who may be reading my blog. That it shouldn’t matter if you don’t like it or even if you are offended by it. I must admit that’s a little hard for me. I care about people. And…

Completely Lost

I locked myself out of my jeep the other night. Or at least I thought I did. I had gone to pick up a few things from an event and returned to the dining hall to put the stuff away. Everyone else had already left for the day, so I locked up the building and…

FOMO

Fomo. You would hear that word being said quite a bit around our office if you happened to drop by. It means “fear of missing out”, but you probably already knew that. New words and phrases have usually hit their peak and are no longer cool by the time I start hearing them. I promised…

I’m Not Lying. I Swear.

Are you a good liar? How do you tell when someone is lying? Those are two more of Joey’s seventy-eight questions to me. The first question is an easy one. The answer is no. I’m not a good liar. Of course, those of you who don’t know me that well yet can’t be sure if…

TAMMY!

One of my bosses and I have a love-hate relationship. I love him — he hates me. Well, maybe he doesn’t hate me. But I apparently annoy the hell out of him. Without even trying. And even when I try to not annoy him. And that’s not good. It’s not good at all. TAMMY! That’s…

Blessed Beyond Measure

Oh my God! Dandruff can lead to death? Taylor Belle was sitting beside me on the couch, reading her health book while doing her homework. And that was what she thought she read. I gave her that look that I guess mamas give their children sometimes. She said it a second time. Dandruff can lead…

Smoking

My daddy smokes. He has smoked as long as I can remember. Occasionally, a pipe, but mostly cigarettes. He is almost seventy-five and has had three strokes over the last few years. And, yet, he still smokes. And you wonder where I get my hard headedness. It was in the 1970’s, while I was in…
