Chapter 19 Mr. Grey takes Ana (a woman he claims he wants nothing more from other than sex) to meet his family.  She can’t find her underwear in his bedroom so goes commando.  Classy!  And slightly hilarious!

Dear Baby

Dear Baby, One year ago today I found out I was pregnant with you.  This is the story of how I told your dad. Daddy was in training in Florida at the time and I was staying with Grandma when I found out.  I hated the thought of telling Daddy over the phone so I came up with a slightly […]

A Word to the Wise

Last weekend I was very excited to find a small shop down the street from where I live that offers sewing and quilting lessons. They even offer a combination class that starts with sewing and progresses to quilting. I anxiously enrolled and paid $50 for the class. This was slightly more than what I paid for at Joann fabrics but […]

Conversations My Cats Have When They Think I’m Not Listening

It’s amazing! Little Miss: Gwennie! Gwennie! Momma’s cleaning! She’s cleaning! You have to see this! Come quick! Gwennie – rudely awoken from her nap: Are you on crack! Momma cleans every Tuesday. It’s her thing that she does. Little Miss: Yeah but it’s not Tuesday. It’s Friday. She’s cleaning on a Friday. Gwennie: I’ll alert the news media right after […]

A Day in the Life of a Disgruntled Blogger

It never ceases to amaze me how much information people feel they need to share on Twitter or on Facebook.  Not that I have any place to judge because I’m typically a woman of too much information myself…..but that’s typically when I’m in the company of close friends (or strangers if I’ve had too much to drink).  Still I have […]

I eagerly called the store and signed up for a class, paying for the $35 lesson over the phone.  My excitement for […]
