What Dreams May Come…

What Dreams May Come…

It seems my words may be coming back. I woke up crying from a dream I don’t remember and the first four lines of this in my head. After  ten continuing minutes, and ultimate uselessness in trying to go back to sleep, the grinding gears inside my head refused to shut up, so up I …

Left of Center

Left of Center

I remember the first time I ever heard that I was shy. I don’t remember exactly how old I was, maybe 6 or 7, and my family was at a party one of my step-aunts was hosting. There were so many adults and most were strangers. The only children were  me and my sisters and …

Let It Go, Let It Go…But I Can’t

Let It Go, Let It Go…But I Can’t

In a few weeks Chez Lunatic will be moving into new digs. This means there is going to be a whirlwind of packing going on for the next few weeks, and I am NOT looking forward to it. Let me make this very clear. I love moving. I love being in a new place and …

Freelancing It

Freelancing It

  Heighdy Ho, Lunatics! I know. It’s been such a long time since I’ve posted anything. I have a very good defense, however. I was well and truly ill. First, I ended up with a sinus infection that affected my inner ears and balance. It’s rather hard to write anything when what you are looking …

Heartaches By The Dozen

  The thought occurred to me this morning that I don’t have much time left with my kids. I watched Son #3 get on his bus this morning and a small pang went through my heart. How many more times do I get to watch him wave to me as his bus goes by? My …

Just Not Feeling It

Dear Lunatics, It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I wish I could say that there was a really good reason for why I haven’t written in so long. Well, actually, there are several very good reasons, which I am not going to talk about in a public forum. Basically, life has just been overwhelming. Mostly, …

Some Advice For The New Year

Some Advice For The New Year

  No, I haven’t disappeared or fallen into a black hole. I’m still here. Just taking a much needed break. I’ve had a lot of personal things going on in my life this month and I’ve needed to back away from things and take a breath or two. I’m hoping the new year will bring …

Where Did My Week Go?

Where Did My Week Go?

Hello my lovelies! I want to apologize for the lack of activity last week. It was not due to the holiday, though I almost wish it had been that. No, a week ago this past Friday my eldest son came home for a visit and brought with him the Mother of All Sinus Colds (hereafter …

This Above All: To Thine Own Self Be True

This Above All: To Thine Own Self Be True

I wasn’t going to write this post. I thought of twenty reasons why I shouldn’t, why I couldn’t, and that I didn’t have to, especially since it deals with a bit of controversy. In the end, my heart, speaking ever so quietly as it ofttimes does, reminded me that for change to happen, even those …

A New Beginning For Him

A New Beginning For Him

Today is the day I have always held in my heart with a little fear, concern, and a lot of apprehension. It came too soon, and while I’ve always known it would come, I’m still not prepared. But I don’t think I ever would have been. Today, my oldest son is 18, a legal adult, …
