So I randomly decided to go back to the beginning of my blog and read a bit about life back then. I was surprised to find myself laughing. At myself! Or with myself? Actually, I'm not sure. But I remember feeling very challenged trying to come up with what to say in a blog post back then because my husband and his friend were so clever and funny in theirs. I realized two things right away in my review tonight: 1) I talked about poo a lot, and 2) Jim and Mike are lame-o blogger dropouts. Also I used to enjoy writing poems. Maybe I should pick that up again...
There's nothing on TV tonight
I'm all alone, but that's alright
I've got my laptop, tried and true
Sweet boredom fighter, I heart you
You help me check up on my friends
Upon your power, I depend
"Stalker" is a word some use
But that's not me, I just peruse
And now I'm done with this sweet poem
I've blogs and emails yet to roam.
Thank you, thank you everyone. I know I overwhelm you with my talent and profound thoughts.
Something else I realized in my review of myself is that I blogged about myself. Now I only ever blog about my children. And rightly so. They are my entire world at the moment. However, I feel inclined to challenge myself to venture out of my mommyness every now and then and blog about something other than my precious, adorable - oh my gosh, Wyatt colored on the walls - children.
I can do that, right? Type words with no pictures??? Hmm. Here is what I see me doing:
Stephanie sits down to blog. Stephanie blocks out the sound of her children not taking naps. Stephanie looks out the window for inspiration. Oh look! That neighbor finally took down their Christmas wreath! Jeez, it only took them 2 months! What was I doing? Oh yes, blog....mmmm....words...funny...look around...table...light...socket...kinda rhymes with chocolate. Hmm. I'm hungry. Did I eat lunch? Who was that person I was supposed to call? Crap! I forgot about the library books! Oh look! That other neighbor is leaving to work out. Man, she works out a lot. What was I doing? Oh yeah, I was going to eat.
See? See how hard this challenge will be?
Did you know that Jim and I used to enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles together? I miss that. Only it makes me feel really tired right now. I miss my old brain.
