Writing My Life – 2

June 30, 2010

This is the second in a series.  I wrote on prayer yesterday and will continue today and the next few days. I was in the 7th grade and had to stay after school because I’d worn horse shoe taps on the heels of my shoes.  They were forbidden because they marked the floor.  I’m not […]

Writing My Life

June 29, 2010

I decided a month or so back to write about things that seem important in my life.  Many of them found their way into my book which is fiction, so the stories don’t represent all the facts.  These represent the facts as best as I remember them. Prayer When I was a little boy, I […]

Life is Full of Poop!

June 3, 2010

It’s Mom and not Layla this time. Life is full of poop, drool, vomit, and boggers  for the average mom.  I thought being a nurse was filled with bodily fluids, but running a house with two small kids and one cat; I can’t escape it!   Layla proudly ran up the stairs to inform me she Pooped […]
