I hope you've reached the right place, and I hope that you're over eighteen. This website is for adults only. No, I don't sell adult toys or videos or anything like that, this isn't a porn site. But it is the site of an erotic romance writer.


If you're looking for a steamy read, long, short or in between, where the characters are all over each other, get down and dirty, than I can guarantee that you will find something here. I'm going to level with you, my erotic romances are explicit and graphic in nature, but they all have happily forever or happily for now endings.


Enter at your own risk!

What's for dinner?

Happy Saturday friends! I'm sitting here trying to catch up after being gone a couple days. I have to fix a decent dinner tonight because hubby can only survive a couple days on sandwiches before he gets cranky. So we're having dirty rice with jumbo shrimp for dinner tonight.

These days because of lack of time and for the sake of convenience, I plan most meals that can take care of themselves. Easy meals I don't have to slave over. I'm sure I'm not the only one. I mean, come on, gone are the days of Betty Crocker! My idea of homemade is anything I can throw in a crock pot and let cook all day without having to touch it.

And why was I gone, leaving hubby to fend for himself? I went to my daughter's place after work on Thursday night and spent the night and all day Friday hanging out with her and little Alivia. My daughter actually called me and asked me if I wanted to hang out with her. Do you know how good that makes me feel? She lives a couple hours away and we try to get together 2-3 times a month.

Well, guess I should go check the rice. Good thing I have non-stick pots!

I don't think we'll ever be that far apart, we're very close. Whenever one of us talks about moving we always say "we". Good thing her hubby realizes we come as a package. We're all close.

Turns out even non-stick pots can let you down. I ignored the rice too long. It was still good, though:)

ROFL, I have that same issue when I'm cooking.

So nice to hear you are so close with your daughter and YAY for a cool son in law!

I'm kind of locked in living here, my oldest son is buried here, I can't leave. I know he's not really here but can't leave anyway. Told my youngest he needs to stay here. Luckily, so far he's good with that. It's cool when they fall in with the plan like that!!

Debbie Wallace said...

Oh Becky, my heart ached when I read what you said about your oldest son. I only have one child and can't imagine life without her.

You had 2 boys and no girls? Girls run in our immediate family. I have a sister, she had one daughter like me, my daughter has a daughter. The men don't stand a chance! LOL

HeHe that is funny. Don't feel bad sometimes me and my husband find ourselves eating breakfast foods for dinner because it is quicker and easier to fix than actual dinner foods.

Debbie Wallace said...

Oh yeah, Cheryl! Nothing wrong with that. Many a time we make ommlets (sp?) for dinner:)

Hi Debbie,
Thanks for the ache on my behalf. Yes I had 2 boys, no girls. Actually in my family there were only 3 boys and 6 girls among my brothers and sisters, so we have more girls too. It's indescribable what living without your child is like. They are such a part of the fabric of our lives. And I feel like the longer you had them, the more devastating the hole left in your life. I had him for 15 years and 10 months so...big hole. I sincerely hope that no one you care for ever has to live through it. I would much rather it be the worst thing you can imagine than ever have you really know.
Sorry for the downer! I will say however, that after living through it, very little seems too big to live through and all the little good things in life, like good books, good conversation, good friends etc. seem so much more important!!If this didn't kill me, nothing can! :)

You sound so strong and courageous and have lived through something no parent should have to endure. Yet so many do. I just think it's so sad. I know you don't get over something like that but it sounds like your take on life and the help of your family and friends have eased your journey.

braible said...

I agree, no one should have to and so many do. I lost a marriage (granted, one that should never have been) because he thought I should get over it and back to normal. He was an idiot, plus it had only been 6 months for crying out loud. But it's alwayd the women who understand that there is no "over it" only through it. But really, I don't know about strong or courageous, I didn't choose it and wouldn't have done it given any choice. But you have people depending on you, who are hurting too, what can you do but keep going? My mother lost her parents very young, her two sisters in their early 40's, a daughter at birth and one at 47 and a grandson. Whenever I think how horrible it's been for me, I have to think how much worse it's been for her. There are always people who have it worse. We just gotta deal. It does help to have family and friends who are there!! But you know it's funny. No one wants to talk about him to me. They think it must be so painful to talk about him. And it is. But it's worse to have no one ever mention him, like he wasn't real, like I;m the only one who still misses him. Sometimes, I want to talk about him. It's really weird. Anyway, sorry to dump a bummer on you. Thanks for listening so to speak. :) You;re a doll!!

Hey Becky, believe me when I saw THEY think about him, too. And they probably feel that unless you bring him up, that you don't want to talk about him, that it's too painful. Maybe it's too painful for them, too.

What most people don't realize is that when someone loses someone they love, they WANT to talk about that person. It's part of the healing.

Mom passed away almost a year ago and I'm dealing with a similar situation with my dad right now.

braible said...

Deb, I'm so sorry about your mom, I posted a little on another of your threads. You are so right, it is SO hard not to talk about him but when I do everyone is so uncomfortable. But I do anyway. I have to. Thank you so much for listening!!!!! I do appreciate it very much!

Debbie Wallace said...

Any time Becky:) They're probably uncomfortable because they don't know what to say.

When dad talks about mom and starts reading the thoughts he's put down in his diary we all get quiet and just look at each other. It's hard finding the words.

braible said...

You're right, it makes people uncomfortable, which is why I am so seldom able to talk about him. It just shuts everyone down. Totally understandable, but a really difficult situation because of it. It's just my opinion, but I think the best thing you can say to your dad when he talks about her is that you know how much he loved her, and you loved and miss her too. He know already but those are the words that let him know he's never alone it this! Just a thought.
