Have you ever noticed that in TV land, zombies can bite through a couple layers of clothing? The rest of the body is rotting away, but their teeth are stronger than ever. It’s the same with their hands. One zombie alone manages to quickly rip through flesh while the skin on their fingers is barely holding them together.

Today was a brutal day at work. I believe the only thing that got me through it was the fact that there was a bottle of beautiful dark wine in the fridge, beckoning for me to come home. I could almost hear it calling my name….Never mind, that was my children asking me when I would be home to cook dinner.

The first book I read of hers was “The Girl in Cabin 10”. It hooked me from the very first sentence. I am now reading “In and dark, dark wood”. I barely put it down long enough to write this post. Continue reading In a Dark, Dark Wood, I Prepped food for the Entire Week

I have spend the last three days buying school supplies, going through the kids clothes for donations, and cutting kids hair. I am spent. I just want to curl up on the couch in my yoga pants, drink my tea, and write! Continue reading Lazy Days and Slow Cooker Chili
Nothing gets me more excited than watching Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes! I started my day off FINALLY getting to watch season 4 of Sherlock. Even though the episodes are an hour and a half, it took me three hours to complete episode one. This was due to my kid’s inability to you know, stop being kids! They have been arguing over everything from whose turn it is to do the dishes down to what color is the best.
