The Up Side of Freelance

People, I should be working on my freelance assignment, but I just had to tell y'all...I love what I do. Freelance writing can really be tough sometimes, but Tuesday was fun. I sent John to the sitter for the first time in more than two months. Then I visited several businesses that I'm profiling for a "best of" guide here in Cincinnati. I took Roland with me. Usually, work and kiddos don't mix well, but in this case, everyone was just taken with him. I talked to a vintage clothing store owner and a yoga studio ...Read more

My man got kicked out of Whole Foods Market

So a Jordanian, a Korean, and a white guy walk into a Whole Foods Market on a Friday night and get kicked out....

Actually, the reason they got kicked out has nothing to do with ethnicity, but I had you going there, didn't I? Last night was a Boys' Night Out for my hubby, and yes, I was home alone with our sons. (Yes, I will get my turn soon, sucka). They wanted to go somewhere and have a couple of drinks. They went to several bars, but could not find a place at the bar due to March Madness (the col...Read more

What's Going On...and Getting OUT

Hey, everyone,

The website has been a little slow lately...I have not added as much new content lately due to motherhood and my writing career. But rest assured, I DO check it every day, and I'm happy to address any new stuff in the Forums, etc. Continue to let me know what's on your mind.

Some good news on the "work front"...I have a new freelance assignment for a "Best of" guide here in Cincinnati, and I'm also rewriting a screenplay. It's great to feel like I'm m...Read more

I know how to pick 'em....

...meaning, the perfect day for my first outing alone with both of my children. Yesterday was cool, but sunny and dry. Today, our Real Ohio Winter came back in full force. We're talking stinging snow. I learned how to drive in rural Kentucky. You should see the road between our farm and the state highway--a slalom course. So I'm not nervous about driving in the snow. But today, it was BAD. People skidding all over the place. At least I have a stick shift, which allows for a little more control.

John is two, and ...Read more

Short, sweet blog and site updates...

Hello, everybody,

You may not be aware, but I had experienced some "trouble" over at the site for my use of the word "HAPA." An anonymous poster had left angry messages in the FORUM. According to them, I had not done my "research" because I used "HAPA" to describe people groups other than native Hawaiians. At first, I tried to answer this person, but after talking to someone over at Kip Fulbeck's HAPA PROJECT, I decided my website would not be a forum for unpleasantness...Read more
