So Dang Tired

  Posted by Caterina , 04 September 2013 · 118 views

Where has my motivation gone? It seems I’ve been struck with the worst case of writer burn-out. But an idea popped in my head the other day and I felt the smallest of nudges. I wrote a query to quickly jot down the story and get some sense of how to structure it. Here it […]

Hello fellow bloggers/book readers/writers/everyone else, No, I’m not dead. I’ve just been crazy busy. I recently got a promotion, so that was insane. My mojo has not returned – I have not written or read anything for months. Not since December of last year. Thought it would be nice to write a blog post to let [...]

Easter is Almost Here.

  Posted by Caterina , 28 March 2013 · 9,268 views

For those that celebrate Easter, it’s almost here! I’m going to a relative’s house where I’ll get the chance to watch the little ones look for the hidden eggs in the backyard. I can’t tell you how much I miss doing that! The day my mom told me the Easter Bunny wasn’t real was the [...]

Good Books?

  Posted by Caterina , 19 March 2013 · 84 views

I’ve been trying to get back into reading again, but I keep finding books that just aren’t capturing my attention long enough. For example: I’d bought Warm Bodies awhile ago since I watched the movie (loved it) and read an exert on Amazon (loved it). I got halfway through and lost interest. Now it’s gathering [...]

Sick and Tired

  Posted by Caterina , 12 March 2013 · 103 views

So last week, I took it upon myself to take a few days off from work so my husband and I could work on our backyard. Ever since we bought our house (1 1/2 years ago), all we had in the back was dirt and weeds. Sure it worked for barbecuing, but it’s not a [...]

The funny thing about being married is the assumption that the next step in life—the next “necessary” step—involves children. And as a woman, I can’t tell you how much I’ve been bugged about when I’m going to have one of my own no matter how much I protest. You see, I’ve never been a baby [...]

Valentine’s Day is Here

  Posted by Caterina , 14 February 2013 · 82 views

Usually, I could care less that it’s Valentine’s Day. Honestly. In the past, I’d blame being single for my non-caring nature, but I’ve been married for 3 1/2 years. My husband’s attitude about today is the same. But for some reason, I’ve been feeling all lovey-dovey lately. I actually want to go out of my [...]

OCD is such a B**ch

  Posted by Caterina , 13 February 2013 · 80 views

OCD, also referred to as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, is something that has plagued me my whole life. Whenever I send out an email, I have to check it three or more times before sending it off. Whenever I make a payment online, I triple-check the bank account number and amount paid. Even when I’m invited [...]

Superbowl Sunday

  Posted by Caterina , 06 February 2013 · 72 views

Let me just make something clear: I don’t watch sports and I don’t follow football, but watching the final game of any tournament is pretty fun. People have the awesome excuse to get together, eat bad food, and yell at the screen. Plus the commercials are always fun to watch. So this past Sunday was [...]

Book Review: My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century

  Posted by Caterina , 01 February 2013 · 180 views

Wow, I haven’t done one of these in ages. And that’s mainly because I haven’t read a book in ages. *sigh* However I loved loved loved this book. I seriously read it in one day. It was written in a way that transported me back in time. I could visualize each scene and felt the [...]
