Mending A Broken Heart

  Good morning, everyone. How have you all been doing? I have been doing great actually, for the most part. 🙂 I know it’s been a bit since I’ve written on here but mostly because I’ve been doing more writing offline than on. Usually when I write I post whatever I’ve...

It Takes a Big Man…

What Do You Think?

Happy Wednesday everyone! Well, Lunatics, what do you think of the new look? I’ve been working hard to get everything working correctly and looking how I want it to look. I love the casual-ness of it. Post-Its, spirals, pens…all these things that writers use. I thought it was a neat idea....

How Did I Get Talked Into This?

Tonight I get to chaperone a bunch of teens, sort of. Mostly, I’ll be sitting at a table in a ballroom of a local hotel watching kids dance, parents watching their kids dance, and refilling candy bowls. I will be the only parent there without a kid at this event. It’s...
