What I'm Reading...

Today, one of the writing prompts at Mama Kat's is  "What are you reading?" This is something I can easily write about! I have a tendency to read 1-3 books at a time,  so depending on my mood,  I have a choice of what to read.   The Good Energy Book  This book is great!  It's a new-agey type book with tips and tricks  for removing negativity from your home. For the record,  I think it's completely normal to use crystals, essential oils,  as well as feng shui to help create balance in your home.   Dark Lover Because the countdown is on... Only 62 days until Blay and Qhuinn's book comes out, so I'm starting a re-read of Books 1-10 And yes, this is the December issue. I'm a tad behind with my magazines. I'm also a tad behind with working out this week...


So gather around And see what the day brings And see what makes you laugh And see what makes you sing And never, nevermind The thing that people say You'll never go away You'll never go away  It's amazing how a song - the lyrics, hell, just the tune, can take you back to that time. All the feelings come flooding back as though it was yesterday that you were standing there in the park and the words that could never be taken back were said. The world came crashing down and there was nothing but sadness and then darkness.  ...and you never know just how dark this screen can be... The ever-gnawing feeling of emptiness that sat like a rock on your chest, crushing you so hard that it was tough to breathe. So you cut and you fought and you cried and you died...  wondering if the sun would ever shine again. Wondering if you would ever smile again. Wondering if the hole in your soul would heal or if it would just be a gaping wound forever...'s just a matter

A few of my favorite things

I try to participate in Leigh's 52 Weeks of Happiness when I can.  But it's been awhile.   So I've compiled a list of things that are making me happy these days. My new Keurig And my new fancy k-cup holder! My bright and shiny Kindle Fire (Look at all those beautiful books!) Lavender and Chamomile lotion (And that funky item in front is a coffin sent to me from Mary Shelley... ;) ) My grandmother's bracelet Penguin artwork by Boy

Monica's Closet

I'm a pack rat. Not the kind that has piles of newspapers blocking the doorway to the living room, but the kind who has a hard time throwing things away. It was always manageable... until I had kids. You see, we bought our house with the intention of having two kids.  However, sometime around November 2007, God gave me the two for the price of one feature. The things about twins... they need a lot of stuff.  You think one baby has it a lot, imagine two of EVERYTHING. Well not quite everything, but pretty darn close. As we needed to make room for two cribs or two swings or 18 million toys, I was stuck with trying to find places for the existing items in the house.  And like I said, I can't throw things away. (I blame my mom for this disease.) So rather than Monica's closet, I had Sarah's office (but there is no door). And Sarah's laundry room (that one has a door). And I had a lot of clutter. Did you know that clutter can drain you emotionally? I've trie
