Monday Madness . . .

Another Grammar article — Dealing with the Comma — picked up by EzineArticles.com. Wahoo, for me. My written word floating around the web is always a good thing. Besides, I’m a little partial to getting the use of the comma corrected. Too many extraneous commas — missing ones for that matter — in basic writing today. A good grammar book should be a must for all. Not, just writers! I can think of few careers into today’s job market where a certain amount of writing is not required. Yet, folks by the hordes throw words at a page and assume they’ll stick in the proper, punctuated order. Not hardly. So, writing grammar tips on the […]

Monday Madness . . .

I’m well aware that Mondays are insane, especially if you’re in the MOM,-I-CAN’T-FIND-MY-SHOES-MY-BACKPACK-MY-LUNCHBOX-MY-HEAD-BEFORE-I’M-LATE-FOR-SCHOOL group . . . however, if you can spare a little over seven minutes, I promise to make you smile. As I’ve never met a mom who couldn’t use more laughter in her life — no, I’m not talking about the hysterical, I’ve reached the edge kinda laughter, but the real deal, hold your sides kinda laughter. That’s what this clip on ‘truism’ will provide. Happy Monday! Drop by the porch again,Until then,~Sandra

As a mom, an older mom whose kids show know better (there’s the disclaimer), I’ve decided I shouldn’t be required to answer stupid questions. After all, I got them to this age, successfully — which means they still have all their appendages, can talk in full sentences, read full sentences, fuss with their siblings, and are intelligent enough to want a job that requires saying more than, ‘Paper or plastic?’. Stop! Don’t send me hate email about how many of you worked in a supermarket. Face it. That’s not a job any of US would want to repeat, nor would we want our kids stuck […]

School daze

And so the learning begins . . . again! Time to tuck the kids back in school and move forward with the intent and determination to finish Trickle of Lies. I might love these characters, but at this point I hate the book — just hung around too long and now it’s time to cut it loose. All that said, there was NO writing work this weekend as the fam and I spent a frantic time getting the oldest moved back to her university, up to the fourth floor and stuffed way too much stuff into way too tiny of a room. Okay, maybe not that far up, but when I was carrying the 20th […]
