Going old-school

It has been since August 4th, 2018 since I have written anything here.  There have been plenty of words in my life, but I have chosen to not be so public with them.  I have, in the past month or so, gone back to my writing roots . . . a good ol' ink pen … Continue reading Going old-school

Is there anyone out there like me?

I have a Dr. Seuss quote on the back window of my car.  This quote is also on my Facebook page . . . We are not created to be clones of each other with the same personality, and wearing the same clothes, and going to the same restaurants, and driving the same boring cars.  … Continue reading Is there anyone out there like me?

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. Here's an excerpt: A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2014.

A look back over T-Rex’s first year

I meant to do this on October 30th, but between work and church time has just absolutely gotten away from me.  So here I sit, a week and a half after A Tale Of A T-Rex celebrated it's first birthday, finally looking back on it's first year of life.  And what a year it has … Continue reading A look back over T-Rex’s first year

No, I am not kidding.  No, I don't mean, "you can tell a lot about a person by the kind of toilet paper they buy."  I think the fact that they are buying toilet paper tells us more than enough about some people.  … Continue reading Toilet paper trivia

Finding the lost spark

Last night as my husband and I were laying in bed I asked him when the last time was that we'd had a good ol' fashioned make-out session.  Take a moment to think back to the beginning of any relationship you've had.  There was something glorious and about just making out.  I'm not talking about … Continue reading Finding the lost spark

Hiding from my best friend

Almost a year ago A Tale of A T-Rex was born.  I wanted a place to work on my writing in a public forum, and also a place to be open and honest about my life.  At the time there were things going on in my life that I could not talk to anybody about.  … Continue reading Hiding from my best friend

Finally recognizing God’s voice

About a week ago I started a class at church led by my pastor.  The group in the class is very small.  Aside from me and our pastor there are only 3 other people.  I like the small size of the group though.  It makes for a more intimate setting.  With only a few people … Continue reading Finally recognizing God’s voice

Who God wants me to be

Lately I have been doing a lot of reflecting on my life.  There has been no significant event to bring on that reflection.  Sometimes you are just able to step back and see things for what they are. I am a 37-year-old wife and mother.  I am an aunt and friend.  I am a dedicated … Continue reading Who God wants me to be

A New Page (poem)

You were an addictionYou were a phaseYou were a detourIn my life's raceWe shared a laughAnd a common interest in youBut when I needed you to step upYou were too afraid to moveI gave you almost all of meTo you I was an open bookBut your selfishness kept you blindedBeyond your world you couldn't lookYou … Continue reading A New Page (poem)
