"It was depressing"

"It was depressing"

That was my hubby's answer when I asked him how back-to-school night was for The Boy. Our babysitter cancelled at the last minute, so he went solo since I can visit the school during the day when he is at work. He had not been to a BTS night in a few years, and he was excited to see the classroom and meet some new members of The Boy's team.

That Was One Hell of a Fart!

So... my last post was in March, and now it's August. Um, yep, that was one hell of a blog fart!

I've been thinking about this blog a lot. Thinking... but not writing obviously. I think a lot. Then I think some more. And when I'm done with that thought, I think, well, more. But it's been a big fat nada on the actual writing.

Blog Fart

At least once a day I have a brain fart. You know what a brain fart is, don't you? That moment where you totally forget what you are doing or saying. It's probably more like twenty times a day... but who's counting?

Right now, I'm having a blog fart. I think of amazing things to write throughout the day, but when I finally get a chance to sit down and write them, all that comes out of my brain is the noxious stench of the gas we pass. A blog fart.

It's been a long couple of weeks with yet another cold hitting our family, with me as its prime victim. Since mommies don't get sick days, it's still hanging around three weeks later, and getting worse. This probably means I should go see a doctor, but that would mean scheduling an appointment and actually getting somewhere on time, which just seems like a lot of work to be able to breathe through my nose. Although now that I can't hear out of my left ear either, maybe it's finally time to go and practice what I preach. "In order to take care of your kids, you need to take care of their mom."

Maybe I picked the wrong time to launch this blog. Maybe I'm waiting for something big to happen to go nuts and write like crazy. Maybe I just need to focus more. Or maybe, I'm just tired.

I'm pretty sure it's that last one.

Caring About Rare

Today is Rare Disease Day in the United States and much of the world. The day recognizes the millions living with conditions that don’t get as much attention, and in turn, funding, as those that affect more people. The idea is that alone, we are rare, but together, we have hope.

Almost Eight Years in the Making... Finally!

The Boy will be eight-years-old in May. And for almost eight years, I have been thinking about this blog. Something happens, and I think, "This would be a great blog post". Sometimes I record the idea in a voice memo. Other times, I jot it down in a notebook. (Not a specific notebook, but any notebook I can find.) Others I've sat at the computer and typed out an actual post-able entry. But the blog did not exist... until today. Welcome to Destiny Laughed.
