Do you remember the first book you ever read? I mean, the actual first one, and not one about watching Spot run? I do; and at an attempt for originality, it was The Frog Prince. I remember this book very specifically. We ordered it from Scholastic in a two-pack where the other book was “Harry… Continue reading The First Book I Ever Read?
The other day I traveled to Boston for work. The flight itself was (amazingly) uneventful, but once I arrived to Logan airport in Boston, I had FIVE hours to kill as I waited for the auditor’s flight to arrive. So, you might ask, what does one do for 5 hours at the Boston Logan International… Continue reading 5…4…3…2…1… Hours at the airport…
Side Note: On the day I wrote this I already had another blog written and ready to go; so this is not actually about last night, but the moral of the story is the same. "Ugh. It's been a rough day," I said to my mom as I was driving home for work at 9:50 last… Continue reading It’s Been A Rough Day
“Who is your favorite author?” It is a question I get asked a lot, especially once I’ve told someone how much I love to read. I usually respond with a name, but if I’m being honest, that name changes depending on what I’m reading at the moment. It can be near impossible to pick a… Continue reading Authors I Love – Ann M.

Yesterday I invited my friend Mary on a picnic lunch. It had been a… Continue reading Spreading a little kindness
Guys. The other day while looking for some foods I could take with me on an outing event, I came across a product that advertised itself as “the portable pickle.” To put it nicely, I was intrigued. This had to be investigated. The product “Munchies” by Mt. Olive is basically a resealable bag of pre-sliced… Continue reading About those Pickles
While I was considering ideas for the blog, one of the things I decided I wanted to do was use a monthly writing prompt... moving forward, this shall be known as "Writing Prompt Wednesday"! I'm very excited about this! What was the best gift you’ve ever received? As I was browsing the internet, trying to… Continue reading The Best Gift Ever
As some of you may know, my birthday is next month. This year, as a present to me, I decided I would take a little mini-vacation for my birthday. I decided on Chicago (although I almost changed my mind when I realized how much the hotel/parking was going to cost *nervous giggle*), and a visit… Continue reading It’s official!
The other day, in an attempt to buckle down and work on my short stories, I pulled an old notebook out of the closet to use for some outlines. The front page of the notebook contained lyrics for a song I had written about 3 years ago. I'm not sure if it is very good as poetry… Continue reading The Lost Poem
