Does anyone know what day it is (take two)

Does anyone know what day it is (take two)

Things have been crazy. I don’t know if I am coming or going. The book, work, life… Add to the mix I just got back from vacation. (which also is why I screwed up this post the first time around) I am one of those people who continue to work while traveling. My Ipone / laptop go with me. Every time despite all my efforts to stay connected I still end up coming back to a mess, which leaves me…

I asked for reader’s questions to use as writing prompts and Lucy from Lucy’s Reality asked “What is my favorite childhood memory?”   I am lucky, with the exception of my father passing away when I was only fourteen, I had an excellent childhood.  I was the only child to two loving parents.  I have so many great memories, but this one just makes me smile….   My mom was in her late thirties when she had me.  She was…
