I’m Not Ready To Die!

I’m gonna try to think of a nice way to say this. A way in which I won’t upset Taylor Belle. Because I know that she will read this, and dealing with a teenage girl is challenging enough. That being said … OMG! I’m teaching Taylor how to drive. I’m not sure what to say…

Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One

So ….. there was this fifty-something year old menopausal woman, a twenty-eight year old woman who is addicted to meth and determined to get clean, and a hormonal, drama-filled sixteen year old girl who just got her driver’s learning permit – all living in a tiny two-story apartment in a small Texas town. Sounds kinda…

Fourth Time Will Be The Charm

They say that the third time is the charm. I’d honestly like to know who “they” are and why the things “they” say rarely turn out to be true for me. They apparently have better luck. But then, if their luck were that great, wouldn’t the first time be the charm? I believe it would….

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…

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…
