The Power of a Wish by Vernita Finch

When asked to write about Spring Break, a plethora of memories flooded my thoughts. Vacations, relaxation, sleeping in…you know, all of the things that go the way of fantasies once you have kids. I will admit, I panicked. Did people really want to hear…

No Kids Allowed, Part 1

I maintain an active imagination. If I happen upon a lovely photo online of an isolated island paradise, I can literally visualize myself there, soaking in warm shade and sea air, a fortuitous daydream of this real or false destination. I mentally photo-shop a laughing me into a romantic…

Dear Vacuum Cleaner…A Love Story

Firstly, allow me to admit that we’ve been through many vacuum cleaners in our short time as a family. In our 13 years of companionship, the hubs and I have housed 4 or 5 vacuums, each more promising than the last. We had to originate a…

We Don’t Know What We’re Doing

I see a few “perfect” families pretty often. Dad has a great career and has struck out to develop his own firm. New clients await just off stage to join him. Mom runs several successful businesses. Her heels and hair are usually aligned faultlessly,…

For the Love of Pinterest

When I first heard of a “Pinterest,” it was as I scrolled down my primary social medium’s timeline. What was a what? I couldn’t even say it correctly. From my first curious glance at the app, I could determine that it included the essential ability to…

Joffrey Baratheon

So. I am a busy mother. My husband is an active father. We are a duet with two developing backup singers.   Amongst the basic tasks of motherhood for me include meal planning, bathing maintenance, entertainment procurement, schedule policing, clothing upkeep, emotional tending, and academic assurance, as well as most delegation procedures to others. (Notice I…

Momma’s Gotta Dream

About six years ago, I began regularly dreaming about “school.” These dreams were not ordinary. Primarily, the consistency of vividness and the frequency of occurrence were obvious, meaningful, audacious.   Sporting a terribly imaginative brain, I engaged all of my senses in the illusions that played sometimes twice a…
