The Month of Insanity!

Let the insanity begin!! The flurry of action that occurs every year in November has returned. We collect our candies, our snacks, drinks, comfy sitting spots, and tools of creation. We mentally prepare for the onslaught of words, words, words! I am, of course, talking about NaNoWriMo. It’s here. In but mere hours we, the […]

Chocolate!!

Oh yeah, that needs to be a big picture. I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate?? A lot of people, actually; weirdos. No, not really. They’re not weird. While I have a fondness for chocolate, I am not one of those ‘eat all the chocolate all the time’ folks. A piece or two here or there is […]

When cHaOs Reigns

You thought this was going to be about dreaming, didn’t you? Fooled you! Dreaming requires actual sleep, which I get very little of. No, these are all the little thoughts that happen right in that blessedly odd moment just before sleep hits; when my body says ‘stop’ and my brain says ‘but wait!’. New ideas […]

Snow Days & the Funk

 Yet again, the powers that be have declared that the thin layer of white fluff on the ground is too much for our precious spawn to handle. All institutions of learning have been closed, and parents all across the land silently weep into their booze-less coffee cups. Why, powers that be? No, that is actually […]

Welcome to 2018!!

Ooh, puppies!!! Ok, focus! I’m late to the new year celebration game cuz I was on vacation over the new year. Be jelly. Or not, no, don’t actually be jelly. Vacation was only sorta fun. Stupid storm took all our warm weather away, teenagers insisted on being miserable, I got sick, and the littles were, […]

And We’re Off!

 Got your attention, didn’t I? GOOD!! Cuz I have done another thing!! Black Eyes: A Demon’s Curse was released for publication over the weekend. While it is only a short story, it is definitely something and it is all mine. Quite exciting. I quit full-time work to do this full time and, thus far, life has intervened […]

Updates! (aka All of the Things!)

Is it just me, or does that word look funny to anyone else? New week, new post. We, here, at ChAoS attempt to maintain a regular posting schedule with regular things sent to the medias of socialness. It doesn’t always work though. Life is just too damned hard with way too many demands. Some might […]

Sleep, Why Have You Forsaken Me?

in·som·ni·a inˈsämnēə/ noun habitual sleeplessness; inability to sleep. This has been my life the past few nights: scrolling through my phone because I have, somehow, upset my beloved lover Sleep. She has left me barren, flitting away at the unholy hours of the morning only to return in the late evening but for a few, […]

Me

Since we rolled right into the holiday week(end) right after the first Choose Your Own Adventure, I’m going to give it one more week for folks to read and comment if they want to. This week, as the world resettles from what many took as a “vacation week” and the curtain of fun comes to […]

Organizing ChAoS

Things have been spectacularly busy/crazy today. Today we celebrated the birth of my third spawn and, naturally, being the brilliantly organized (NOT) individual that I am, I saved gift-buying for the very last second while I ran out to collect my prescriptions, run errands, and find a place that had cupcakes unadorned with little black […]
