He’s Gone

The house is quiet when I get home. No alternative rock plays from the kitchen. No metal utensils on pans. No aroma of something delicious. Continue reading


The Closer I Get to You #amwriting

Sorry for this minor interruption into Mouse stories. I had this bouncing around in my head and wanted to get it out before it bounced around so much that I got a headache. Thanks for your indulgence. 🙂 ps this is probably a 3 or 4 parter.

And I almost went with Luther Vandross (whose voice I have always loved) and Beyonce, but Roberta Flack’s voice……………. #originalisbetter

All The Plans That Came Undone #amwriting

There are two sides to every story, every relationship. Ms. Maggie McConnell, romance author extraordinaire asked about Bill’s side of the story in reference to yesterday’s Cradle Broken Glass, which told JJ’s side.

Did I Say That I Want You?

That weekend was a gift that disappeared too quickly. Back in DC, I use all of my free time to fill in applications online. I’ve found an apartment, which, although on the small side, will suit me. While I hope that Steve will be part of my new life in Virginia Beach, I’m not taking it for granted, or sharing the news with him just yet because why disappoint him?

Pack. I’m serious. Continue reading
