I reached for my phone on the nightstand. Where was I? What was going on? I tried to read the time on my phone, but my eyes weren’t cooperating. Straining, I was able to make out 3:01 am. I coughed. And realized my lungs were being constricted. Panic set in, and I started to sortRead More
I am old. This is what the new batch of our babies have to look forward to. They have an old mom. And she’s way behind the times. They will to go school with kids that were birthed into swimming pools… In their living rooms! Am I new? I am just hearing about this. I saw the Duggars doing “natural” deliveries in a bath tub..
Reminding myself of this again, and again, and again….
Exciting night here. 3:45 am Sam woke me because he was scared of noises… Long story short the police just left, there had been someone in the backyard trying to get in the house. In the chaos I go upstairs to check on the kids; breaking my policy of giving them a 30 minute opportunityRead More
The searing pain was second only to the acidic burn perforating a hole into my brain. Words do not do the fiasco justice. I had suffered with a sinus infection for two weeks. I had two days until I was to travel, alone, well with my mom, but no kids, to California for The MountRead More
Luke: where did Sophie go? John: I don’t know … But what is up with her? She’s all dark, depressed, and sad. Luke: She’s all up in her teenage-ness. I don’t like it. John: Me either. The mood swings, and then the chatter. It’s exhausting. Said the 16 and 15 year old….Read More

So if you start your Monday out on the wrong foot STAY STRONG. Keep it up all week. If on Monday morning you are in the principal’s office in your pajamas, fuzzy slippers, and no bra… by time you put the babies down for a nap make sure they have thrown eggs all over everyRead More

One of my favorite Christian authors emailed me in reference to my upcoming book submission and asked me this question, yesterday, at 2:33 pm… she is famous. She is wise and poetic. The email said “HI!” and this was the question inside, “where are you in your craft?” Yesterday was one of the longest and most stressful days in my life. I felt I should answer her truthfully. My response:.
In my pajamas eating Nutella. Love, Jami
I did attempt to get dressed. I heard the babies laughing and paused to see what was funny… I can see where if you are 3 or younger the explosive quality of eggs is funny. I am not laughing… Seriously… Please. Stop.
Rarely am I rendered speechless… but the ghastly black vomit left me so. I had no words. I just stood there staring at it. It was like a dream, the one where someone is chasing you. They are wearing a creepy faceless mask and they are swinging a giant sharp hook thing at your head…Read More
