Oh this is happening.
I’ve been on a vacation from writing.
It was sort of a self-imposed vacation.
Then I realized that every little thing happening to me was processed in the form of a blog post in my head. I just can’t not write.
It doesn’t matter anymore if it is popular.
It doesn’t matter if people think I’m weird because I blog and I say the stuff that maybe they were thinking but wouldn’t say out loud.
I wouldn’t be me if I weren’t occasionally putting my foot in my mouth.
A friend recently told me that she can always call me for advice because she knows I’ve been there. It got me thinking… I have “been there”. Nothing extraordinary happens to me. However, a lot of the normal every day crap happens to me all of the time and I was meant to share it. If nothing else maybe I can make you feel better about yourself when you read this because I am sure you handle the situations better than I did – for instance, you probably haven’t called your toddler an asshole out loud recently because of his crazy devil child behavior. Feel better? You’re welcome.
So, this website has a renewed vigor and purpose. I will be my ordinary everyday self and you can come here to laugh at me or with me. You chose. This life isn’t getting any longer and for whatever reason, I experience it best in the form of words on virtual paper.
PS – Yes I did call my toddler a bad name. I felt terrible, blamed it on 3 days of sleep deprivation and immediately scooped him up and covered him with kisses. Sometimes, you just have to get it out of your head to realize you don’t really mean it.
