bum surfing out of Dodge

Sup dawgs. I am full of clichés today so I apologize in advance ….and I may go off on a rambling tangent or two, so forgive me for the not~ so~ great~ writing. I am being distracted by the beautiful light and too much coffee and I am stoked. Giddy up!  Yes sorry I haven’t been around lately but it has been a busy and exciting time.Just so you know I have  been keeping up with my reader for the most part and following all you beautiful and talented minds out there. You all give me inspiration and smiles so thank you for that. Huge smiles. ***hugs too***


My first-born bouncing baby boy has been getting ready to jump the puddle for the pond, a.k.a. applying to universities, volunteering  and going off to change the world  for the better by inventing new gum flavours or the next awesome video game that trumps X box/ Playstation ( he does have a lot of experience there 😉 )  and I have been beavering away at something very exciting in my own life. I/we  still have baby birds here in the nest but these moppet headed scallywags are growing themselves up in leaps and bounds,  warp driving into teenage ‘walkers’, if you have teens you will get my drift, they don’t emerge from their dark caves until they are looking for food …similar to Zombies or the Walking Dead. Gross analogy but sadly true.

Aidan walking-dead

Before I know it they too will be walking off into the sunset, hunting and gathering for themselves. Or not. 🙂 ugh, that was terrible…  By no means do I want to push them off the stoop with a sack of clothes and five bucks in their hands but maybe it  just might be time for this Mama to grasp at the chance to swing on a star .

I have been pulling some long hours in front of this screen while bum surfing  a most vintage ( read: uncomfortable) but pretty chair , madly scribbling ideas on scraps of paper until the lead almost runs out and that funny bump on my middle finger where the pencil rubs up against is indented permanently and of course thinking way too hard on details that  my eyelids grow heavy and scratchy and everything looks  so much the same in my brain that I have to walk away and a wee nap is in order. Yes! Naps are good for you plus some of my best ideas are hatched in my nest. Breathe….

See? I am rambling.


I have to give props to my honey for helping me grind it all out and make order out of  mad chaos. ((( hugs))). He is the best. He is talented. He should have shoved 5 bucks in my hand and pushed me off the stoop long ago. Just joking, those guys need me. They would starve.


K, cut to the chase. I love clichés. Oh Gawd.  no. more. coffee. today.

K, really now. What I have been trying to spit out is I am chasing my dream. Finally. Full circle, as I watch my oldest baby get ready to chase his, I realize how fast time goes by and if I do not do this now, I may never and that is something I do not want. . No regrets.

I know you will wish me luck, because that is what friends do. Friends only want the best for their peeps. When it is all ready to unveil you will be the first to see. Until then, take care of yourselves and love each other like there is no tomorrow. Remember don’t put off today what you should have done yesterday. 🙂

Until next time, coffee breathe kisses and more ***hugs***
