Old. New. Borrowed. True. #2


Squirms is really loving eating real food, especially crackers. And her crawling continues to get better and faster. I’m restarting an old habit of drinking lots of water, thanks to sitting close to a water purifier at work again. I’m still writing a bit though not nearly as much as the few weeks prior.


I’m getting back into knitting again, though I can’t do it for very long at a stretch not because of time availability but my hands start to hurt like crazy. The sudden knitting interest again is due to a present from Matt and my parents that I have yet to actually put to use. (Need to get it all set up so I can take a photo to show off.)


I stole from day care the idea of giving Squirms crackers and she IN LOVE. Not the healthiest thing ever but she loves breaking them into a thousand pieces. (Excuse the cat hair on the carpet below her, it’s a daily battle to keep up with it.)



I need at least some alone time everyday and need more than I think. I need to learn to simply ask Matt to watch Squirms so I can get that time, either at home or outside of it.

Serial Creator

Day Four of Writing 101 got a little dark with its prompt (and it’s title — The Serial Killer):

Write about a loss: something (or someone) that was part of your life, and isn’t any more.

This doesn’t need to be a depressing exercise; you can write about that time you lost the three-legged race at a picnic. What’s important is reflecting on this experience and what it meant for you — how it felt, why it happened, and what changed because of it.

Today’s twist: Make today’s post the first in a three-post series.

Which is why I’m going to ignore that whole part about writing about a loss – not that I won’t write about it later – but am going to run with the idea of a serial.

You’ll notice a new page will appear on my blog the same time this posts does with a list of Features. These are recurring topics for blog posts I’m planning to get started with, well, tomorrow. This will provide me some much-needed structure and direction for this blog because without either I’m likely to post about as often as I did on my previous blogs (which averages to once a month over the last 15 years).

See you tomorrow.
