I am a wife, mother, small business owner, annoyer of all things hubby, and occasionally I write. This is me, my life, my all. You get to see all my epic failures as I navigate my way to fame, though

Duchess has been running around the house singing, "Let it Go" with the occasional, "For the First Time in Forever" thrown in for spice. I've never seen the movie Frozen, so last night, I righted a horrible wrong. With Sweetness in the kitchen watching some cheesy (appropriate) Vin Diesel movie, and Duchess running around the living room dressed in a scarf screaming, "I'm a Princess", I sat on the couch to watch the movie all my adult friends had labeled, "Their favorite movie". Well, it still isn't my favorite movie (Nemo is), I gotta admit I wasn't disappointed.
As a society, we're pressured, by Hallmark, into buying into the unrealistic ideal of hearth, hot chocolate, blanket on the lap, and favorite sweatshirt as the mandate for a perfect family night, and when that doesn't happen, guilt for being a horrible mommy sets in...LOL, you gotta "Let it Go". In this house, that Martha Stewart mess, ain't gonna happen. Oh sure, once in a blue moon, there will be a movie, like Toy Story, that we can sit down and enjoy together, but more often than not, I'm just grateful that we're under the same roof. Family isn't relation, sharing a common tree... it's an emotion, and while that's some Liberal stuff right...you KNOW I'm right..... FULL POST

I have a fear, that makes spiders look like Chunky Monkey Ice Cream. I was pregnant with Princess the summer of 1989, when I picked up the book that would bring my first real adult fear. It remains in my top 5 reads of all time. I've been rather braggart about not fearing any man because I've known TRUE FEAR. If I don't feel, what I felt that day, I will not fear you....I may actually fight back. I wonder if Stephen King meant for the book to be so prolific and realistic to today's events? Hmmm.
The Stand is a book about a disease called Captain's Tripp that takes over the world, and wipes out an entire population (95%). The survivors hear and follow the voice of a Nebraska woman who leads them to the eventual battle ground of Las Vegas via Boulder Co. It's a story of good vs evil, it doesn't end the way one would want, and it's graphic....but there's something else. The real threat of dying, and leaving our children alone to fend for themselves. With the viruses, flu's, germs and superbug's in the world today, are our children safe? Who will care for my babies should I leave this world? THAT keeps me up at night..... FULL POST

From the "I want you right here, right now" to the," Is that all I'm good for ?" this man is going to have to have the patience of JOB in order to get through this without going to jail. I love him, that doesn't change..he once said to me, "Ronnie, I KNOW the sweet girl I married is in there somewhere". He's doing the best he can with what he has. I get that. I think, one day a month, I'll set aside some time so I can get right with God...even if HE does hate me.
