Midnight Wild Child Gypsy Dreamer: The Middle

It cannot be seen, cannot be felt, Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt, It lies behind stars and under hills, And empty holes it fills, It comes first and follows after, Ends life, kills laughter. – J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit Tuning out the voices was easier than I ever imagined it to be.  I decided…

Beachy Days and Just Short of a Decade

Now that we are almost two months through surgery recovery and lifestyle changes I can report that even though it has gotten easier it has not gotten any less annoying.  I am two months sober from alcohol, tylenol, and several other medications that could have aided in my allergy fest that I had experienced earlier…

Morphine Rambles

Let me take you back to something that I wrote while laying in the hospital bed waiting for my gallbladder to be removed.  I was connected to a Morphine drip in order to dull the pain and news that the  doctors were unsure if I could make it to surgery in time before my gallbladder…

Lights Out

We have been having a rough week as far as the weather goes. It has been cold, the winds shake the house, the rain turns to ice and then snow and then back to rain again, all while the power struggles to stay on.  Losing power for hours at a time is a whole other…

Snow Birds

I have been experiencing an extreme overwhelming feeling of insecurity and self doubt.  I guess that they are both one in the same, but I can not explain how this feeling has crept up on me or even why.  I can think of a few changes in my life that have occurred over the past few…

Baking Guns

Good morning, or should I say afternoon?  Our long Valentine’s weekend has ended and the girls are finally back in school.  Last night brought down rains that melted away a large amount of snow clearing the roads for early morning driving.  We had a fun, game filled, relaxed weekend.  We were unable to do our…
