Dealing With Unwelcome In-Laws At Christmas

I was alone this Christmas. I was heartbroken when my husband Daniel told me he was driving to Tennessee for the week. His sister and our brother-in-law had gotten a cabin on AirBnB and invited us both to come. Being busiest this time of year, the line of work that I’m in doesn’t allow for time off during the holidays. Just Christmas day and then we’re back at it. Still, I didn’t want to discourage him so I waved him off with feigned elation and wished him a safe drive.

This is a letter to my son that I thought would be important to share with everyone on this thoughtful day. It is important to always be thankful for what you have.

Sow The Seeds And Give Thanks – Part 1

by Norma Gacy


I guess this all started with the flu … or at least that’s what I thought it was. I’m not so sure anymore. I’m hesitant to share this experience because you’re going to think I’m nuts.

The Laws Of Thermodynamics

This is only happening because of what we did. I regret it, but not because of the consequences. I regret it because I could have been good; I should have been kind. I think we deserve this.

Something Stared Back

It’s a fever hallucination, nothing more.

That was what I convinced myself when I heard the sounds. It was an auditory hallucination and that was a reasonable enough explanation.
