(Disclaimer: long story about my early days as a mom with a toddler and an infant.)
On Monday night I watched a bunch of syndicated Big Bang Theory episodes. As always, they were funny and entertaining, but one in particular kind of threw me for a loop. It somehow sparked a weird, long, complicated memory of my early mom days from 12 years ago.
I sat in my bed immediately after that episode finished, and typed out the convoluted mess that my subconscious dredged up into my blog.
You’re welcome. 😊
I hereby caution you: the following post is lengthy, ugly, painful, and maybe just a little bit insightful. If you are in a delicate state of mental health at the moment maybe skip over this one.
You have been warned.❗
After I typed it out, I realized something: watching tv is hazardous to my mental health.
Either that, or it’s therapeutic.
Yeah, let’s go with the second one. Catharsis, if you will.

I’m on the fence about a lot of things in my life, but my latest struggle is about NaNoWriMo.

Today, my daughter and I cycled for about 8 km just for fun. 🙂

It was a PA day today, no school, so I didn’t have to make breakfast or lunches for the kids. As expected, both slept in which meant I had an extra quiet morning for writing.
I wrote a blog post I think you will enjoy. But I thought it was a bit long and a bit wordy and figured later, after I do some things in the garden, I’ll come back and finish it. I intended on publishing it by Friday evening.
It is now late afternoon and I just spent 42 minutes waiting for my laptop to load. To wake up. To DO SOMETHING.

So there is no school strike today.
The labour dispute was with the support workers, custodians, secretaries and special needs educators, not the teachers, but most boards decided that full school closures would be implemented in the event of a walkout.
At 9 pm last night the media announced, well ahead of the midnight deadline, that a tentative agreement had been reached and all children are expected to go to school on Monday.
According to Twitter, mass panic ensued. Naturally the kids were disappointed. The parents, especially those with small children and daycare/afterschool care were overjoyed.

Yesterday and all this week so far has been crap.
If one more thing happens I will lose my mind. Again.
My Pity Party in full progress.
So last night, in utter desperation and with no one to cry to, I emailed a friend from the parking lot at a rink at 10 o’clock at night that I was thinking of quitting blogging.
This morning he responded with:
Don’t kill your blog!
So basically, it’s his fault that this post is Pointless Stupidity. 🙂
Anyway you wanna know about all my issues?
Disclaimer: it’s a lot of whining and complaining, so feel free to exit now.

I saw this posted on social media in various places and thought it was fun! Let’s have some fun on a Friday afternoon…
1) How do YOU brush your teeth? Pick a number.
2) How do you think I brush my teeth? (Because my way is the right way… hahahaha) 🙂

Ok so I came across this post in my WordPress reader and simply had to re-post it here for you. Because it is ABSOLUTELY… Brilliant? Ridiculous? Hilarious?
I’ll let you be the judge.
Disclaimer: if you’re a shrinking violet or shy about sexual matters, perhaps it might be best if you simply turn away from this post because the last thing I intend to do is annoy or offend anyone. I did insert a few commentary for your (and my) entertainment – to be taken with a grain of salt. 😉
PS Much of the world is still in this exact ‘state of mind’… (just saying).

Yesterday’s office hours were a bit of a futsch.
Is that a word? If not, it is now. I made it up. It means, as per my definition, that writing didn’t happen to the degree I wanted it to.
Having said that, I wrote a lot the day prior and I got feedback from two people – one over email and one sitting beside me on the couch. 🙂
