Writing

Hey everyone! It has been quite some time since I wrote a post for my blog. I’m really sorry for my absence. The truth is that I have been struggling with my mental health and lost a large chunk of the last two and a half years to those struggles. I have ultra rapid cycling […]

I was incredibly lucky to have played music in the 1980s and early 90s with a wide variety of fine musicians, so I thought I would write about some of them. During our time with the band, Paul and I worked with four different drummers. Charles Ross, who was going by Chuck then, was the […]

We had done a lot of work over the summer trying to make the trailer livable, but there was still a long way to go when Paul moved out. I was also facing being a single mom of two for the first time. Although, I had done most of the caretaking for our children, I was […]

That’s usually until you’re having a trouble or two, and then that one message that flashes across your screen ends up just ‘clicking’ for you. That’s […]

It’s that time of year, when everybody cracks out their ‘Best Of’ lists. And in this particular case, we’re choosing to follow the crowd… Sort of. We’ve polled our staff, and have come up with a few good lists. Enjoy. Rob Smittix – Top Bizarre List of 2020 2020 has been a year we’ll always […]

As we were leaving Salt Lake City, Paul and I realized that the trip was going to take a lot longer than anticipated unless we could figure out a low to no-cost way to repair the bus. Now, we were really glad that we had made a stop in Reno before hitting Salt Lake. We […]

I almost forgot to write about one last thing that we needed to do before leaving the West Coast. Remember our cat Autumn who’d had her first litter of kittens behind my chair on the night of Justin’s concussion? Before we could get her spayed, she had another litter of kittens. As soon as they […]
