It has been very quiet here lately. Life has been hectic and I have had new blog ideas bouncing around in my head. I started Thoughts of a Lunatic because I had nowhere else to share & shed my thoughts, and it has truly served its purpose well.
But while this blog still holds a special spot in my heart, I feel like I have outgrown it. My life is different in almost all ways, and I struggle to find things to write about. I will not be getting rid of it … after all, I will always be a lunatic that needs a special place to put my crazy, but I want to have a different outlet that is more focused on where my life is at now.
This brings me to an illness I have come down with … baby fever. I admit it, my hormones are charging full speed ahead at the thought of becoming a mother. I have always wanted to have children, and as my husband and I are in the process of owning our first home together, it feels like the right time to be able to seriously start thinking about it. I want to create a new blog that centers around the hysteria, fear, and process of becoming a first time mom. The before’s, during’s, and after’s. And everything in between. I don’t feel like that stuff fits in here at Thoughts of a Lunatic, so I am going to graciously hang up my hat a bit and slowly bid adieu. It is certainly bittersweet and emotional, but I feel that the time has come.
What I need help with is the title. There are thoughts bouncing around my head, but I really could use some input. I wonder if I should keep with the “Loony” persona (since it feels like home) or do something completely different.
Please share your thoughts in the comment section. Chime in on title’s already mentioned, or come up with a new one. If I end up choosing a title that one of you comes up with, I’ll send you a little something to say thank you.
My current brainstorms: “A Loony Mama” … or my husband’s idea “Mommy Files” (named after my Pinterest boards on all things kids).
This should be a fun little journey. Hope to see you all there along with me!
