Saturday Sound*Off!

Well, it has been a busy summer. And not one without moments that I thought to myself, "I need to blog that!"

I have been working very hard on my children's books and I thank all of you who get out your pom poms every time I talk about an idea or share some news of anticipation. I do have to say that all of the critique groups, online courses, books, etc have really readied me for publication. I am actually blessed that it has taken a few years of hard work to get to the point I am now. Through those years I have had the opportunity to make some amazing writer friends who "say it like it is" when I need them to and hold back a little when I am tired of the rejection letters.

I have really put my blog on the back burner to focus on writing for kids. I have quit all my freelance parenting gigs to focus on speaking to KIDS not ADULTS. I was finding it very hard to turn that channel. After spending a day crafting an article on SUMMER CAMP CARE PACKAGES, my brain was not changing gears and therefore my writing for kids suffered. So, I sacrificed the income for the kids. :) With pleasure!

ButI have missed my blogging family! So, I return to you. I know I can talk to you all like a child and you think it's fun! :) You are my childish sounding board, and I say that with love!!

Glad to be back!

So, I welcome you to the first installment of SATURDAY SOUND*OFF !

This is your venue to let it out! Speak your mind! Share your joys and sorrows! The subject can be anything you choose as long as it is not offensive or rude. You can also comment on someone else's sound*off as well, just NO BASHING!

So, GO!


(Mommy Blogger Monday will return next week and we will have a special guest in addition to the new Monday Mommy!)

I've missed you too. I hope to be back as well.

I never gave the namesake to my little guy. He will be getting it in 3 weeks when he turns 7. I know he will love it!

Love T

Sometimes it's good to take breaks...welcome back!

Ok, so here I go:

I love my children! I dislike the fact that they create messes faster than I can clean them up. I love my husband! I really dislike that he can be so anti-social...I guess it's the engineer in him. I love my life! I dislike that there are not enough hours in the day to get everything I want to get done...done.

I am looking forward to our 5th wedding anniversary on 8/21. Not exactly happy that we have to take Kara with us (she still has major stranger/seperation anxieties) to the Finger Lakes but we will make the most of it. I mean a vacation is a vacation, right? :)
