After twenty years of marriage, caring for my children and home, many mindless jobs and letting my appearance go south, I’ve lost my identity.  I used to write, it was my outlet.  I want to write again but my life is dull, so I’m on a quest for inspiration.  I’ve always believed there was a great story in me, but my passion and creativity have lain dormant for so long I may need the jaws of life to extract them.  I’m hoping this blog will reawaken my soul.

A word of warning or disclaimer:

Some of my blog entries are exaggerated versions of the truth, embellished for entertainment purposes.  Some are things I fantasize about doing, some are things I’ve actually done but am too embarrassed or ashamed to tell anyone I know in real life but feel comfortable sharing with my cyber friends.  I do tag them as “fiction” and “non fiction”.  I don’t want to mislead anyone.   I started this blog to exercise my creativity and maybe even  exorcise some demons.  🙂

  1. I am glad I visited…you have a new follower.

  2. Hey thanks for the follow at Mancakes the Blog….excited to check your work out. You sound like my long lost sister so far! 🙂

  3. I’ve nominated you for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award and hope you accept. I enjoy your blog and hope others will also.

    You can check my nomination at:

  4. OK. Here is your clearly superficial comment of the day. If that Av is you ‘letting your appearances go South’ holy moly!! You are beautiful!

  5. Thanks so much. 🙂 You should see me in sheer black hose…

  6. Your appearance has not gone south! Unless, of course, that’s not really you in the picture. You remind me of a young Diane Lane. Beautiful!

  7. Thanks a lot for submitting your photos to my project “The Ambiguity of Fences”.

    It would be great if you take part in my exhibition. Here are the details.

  8. Hi Nicole, I wanted to let you know I have nominated you for a Best Moment Award.

  9. Hi, I think we may be mirror images of each other!
    Lost identity – so true

  10. Thanks for liking my blog. I’m laughing out loud at some of your posts! I might have to drop one or two blogs I follow so I can follow yours; I have a limit in how much I can read after an exhausting day at work. 🙂

  11. Thanks for dropping by “Honey.” Am loving that you embelish… sometimes you just have to do what you gotta do! 🙂

  12. Thanks for liking my doodle!

  13. Hi, I wanted to let you know that I’ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Here is the link to my post:
    I enjoy your blog and wanted you to know it. Thank you for making my days a little better.

  14. I couldn’t find anywhere to say this on your ‘Awards’ page so I’ll have to clutter this one up instead. I’m really touched and grateful that you should have handed me so many awards. It gives me a nice glow, and such things are worth commenting on. I’ve only just discovered your Blog, but I really enjoy it. Meeting people you might get on with in real life but will probably never meet is a rich by- product of Blogging. It just makes your world a little richer. You’ve certainly done that for me.

  15. Sounds very interesting….I shall take a look.

  16. I too am here to exorcise demons; writing fiction embellished facts because its fun. I’m told I write akin to V C Andrews with regard to placing the reader as a spectator. I’m enjoying the stakeout references….you are an amazing writer. I’m glad I found your blog finally.

  17. Regarding “About”, I know how you feel. In my case, the kids are to the age where they are now mostly independent and I suddenly woke up and said to myself, “where the hell have I been?” I have stifled myself for too long, especially my creativity. Kudos to you for having the courage to do this.

  18. So many amazing posts! and stories!!! I enjoyed your blog alot! Thank you!! 🙂

  19. Years ago, I had a dream to be a writer. But I dithered a good part of my life away before picking up the pen again. Enjoyed reading the post I read. Will be back to indulge a bit further.

  20. Interested and intrigued by your blog. Very inspiring indeed! Looking forward to your next posts. Please follow back if you will. Thank you!
