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…

First Breakdown

It’s happened. One month in and I’ve used the Roadside Assistance button on my Progressive Auto-Insurance app. Buying a Vanagon that’s older than me was always going to yield breakdowns and stalls. You don’t go into #vanlife thinking that it’s always going to be smooth sailing. I will admit I thought it’d be a little…

Running Waters

Hello!! It has been a bit of time, but I have been quite busy, plus a little avoidance of actually sitting down at my computer.  My internet has been all over the place for some odd reason.  I have yet to determine fully if it is the browser I am using or if something else…

Summer Planning

Heating Topics

I believe we are in the clear of our previous pesky situation.   Nine days after my discovery of those nasty creepy crawlers the school issued a letter home speaking to numerous outbreaks throughout different classrooms.  They also started sending the nurse to each class to do head checks.  I guess late is better than…

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…

Productive Days

I am sorry for the post that I removed late last week.  I was using this as an outlet to vent and felt that some of the comments received were a little to hard to hear so I removed it.   But on to today…. I have had a lot going on this past week.…

Past Triggers

The snow does not seem to want to linger on the ground.  The locals keep describing a winter that I fear does not exist.  I would love to see the rivers and lakes frozen over for ice skating to occur.  I would love to be forced to carry my shovel in my car with me everywhere I go…
