Responding to my Facebook comments troll and the irony of it all
Never ever ever have I responded to a comments troll, but this time I feel compelled to.

Why I am thankful for the Plainfield woman in the silver Mercedes who nearly killed my husband
First, I want to say that I adore my husband, and I do NOT want him dead. That being said, I am still thankful for the woman that nearly killed him yesterday, and this post will explain why. My husband is an avid angler. Translation? He loves to go fishing. We worked very hard most... Read more »

8 questions you should ask prior to booking a room at a bed and breakfast

8 questions you should ask prior to booking a room at a bed and breakfast
Last Friday, I left work around noon and headed out of town to spend the weekend writing my novel at a 120 year old Victorian bed and breakfast. I love restored old houses.

My dislike for being in the ocean just reached new depths
I like walking on the beach with my feet barely covered by the waves splashing in and out. I do not like putting any more of me than that in the ocean. I don’t like to swim in the ocean, I don’t like to kayak in the ocean, and I don’t even like being on... Read more »

There really are only two seasons in the Midwest

Everyone that has lived here for more than one year knows that there really are only two seasons in the Midwest. Winter and….. yup, road repair. OH.MY.GOODNESS.
