Hitting Send

I feverishly wrote, getting the words out of my head and onto the screen while the memories were still fresh. That’s the way I write, with inspiration that comes when I least expect it, quickly, and crawling out of my finger tips. I wanted my story told because I wanted others in the same situation to know that they weren’t alone, but I also wanted to know that it was real.

I was a little cra cra.

And then I hit send.

I sent my work off into the world with the hopes that someone would appreciate it.

Guess what?

They did.

I am pleased to be featured, along with these other incredible writers, in  Surviving Mental Illness Through Humour.

More details to come, for sure.

Thank you to all of you for your continued support!

I couldn’t do it without you xo

No One Wanted To Play With Me

We sat together in the big brown rocking chair, like we always do after school, and talked about her day. Her legs hung over mine, longer than they’ve ever been, reminding me of her growth and the way time flies. Every answer was “I forget” and “I don’t know” unless she was asked a specific…

Minted. All You Need in One Site

Around October I start to panic about our Christmas cards. Where will I go for them, who will I order from, who has the best prices? I look for great pictures on my phone and search for the best designs all over the internet. And then it snowballs from there. Teacher gifts, neighbours gifts, daycare…

A Fright Adventure

When I was a kid October was all about watching scary movies, a few mysteries, eating all the candy, and scaring my brother until he couldn’t sleep. Okay, I scared myself until I couldn’t sleep, and my brother was fine. We would stay up, watch our favourite shows, cover ourselves in warm blankets, and I…

Why October Hurts

I sat on the bed and went through the basket I had pulled down from the top of the closet. Items I hadn’t seen in some time, many put up there because they had no other place, others because I didn’t want to see them anymore. Soothers that had been taken away by the “meme” fairy,…

Ornaments With Love – A giveaway…again!

I love me some Christmas… What? I know it’s only October but I seriously love Christmas so I start shopping early, that way I save money, time, and I get into the spirit early and the Christmas music that the malls start playing this month doesn’t bother me as much. Okay, yes it does. Anywhoo.. this year…

Why Are You Staring?

I remember sitting cross-legged on the couch and watching TV, in the zone, and feeling eyes on me. Why did she stare at me so much? “WHAT?” “Nothing, I just like looking at you.” Weird, I thought, why did my mother look at me so much, so annoying. Doesn’t she have somewhere else to be?…

I’m THAT Mom

Last week we were invited to a school BBQ, an opportunity to meet the teacher, see the classroom, and mingle with other parents. We received a reminder call the night before, the little voices on the other end reminding us to bring money. I was giddy. You want more money? Ok! Anything! Just let me…

It Ended Perfectly

This weekend I found myself laying on the couch in a boo hoo emotional state after a friend returned home from New York. She had a blast. In a glass. She told me tales of people who had few family obligations, stories of clean houses, talked about wine on patios, and how great it tasted to…
