When mama needs to rant, she does. But my audience is dispersing. My two younger boys are living on campuses that are not too far away, but they’re out of earshot. My hubby, aka “Big Daddy,” is out doing his thing in the big wide world. My dog cocks her head and looks at me, but she doesn’t seem to understand. My oldest son is a soldier in Iraq, and I’m hoping my ranting will make him feel like he’s not so far from home.

OK–I guess I better update:  Youngest Son is still close enough to pop in and out of the home base.  Oldest Son is now home from Iraq and trying to figure out what he wants to do next.  And Middle Son J is far away in Germany for a year.  Our dog, Sky, still looks at me with the same incredibly dumb but adorable look on her little boxer face.

    No matter your son’s distance from home or age, I doubt he can escape his mother’s rants—no son can!

    I enjoyed reading your blog so much, that I started my own. Granted it doesn’t have the humor or anything in it, but it’s a start, and I can just speak my mind. BTW.. this is Sheri. =P

    I stumbled across your post on networked blogs, I don’t generally post on those because I will only end up becoming fans of blogs I enjoy…yours is very entertaining and close to my heart as a menopausal, catching up to 50, wife and mom of 16 and 20 year old sons. If interested check me out at beglorious.blogspot.com 🙂 Have a glorious weekend!

    What I love most about us gals, is our fearlessnes. It’s not always ranting, it’s good hearty philosophy here. I have my flavor of, but I’ve enjoyed reading yours here today.
