(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.

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.

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 can feel it coming, the depression. It’s creeping in. Taking hold, slowly, cell by cell.
I try to figure out the source and stop the flow but I don’t know what it is – Genetics? Seasonal changes? Hormones?
Let’s blame hormones. 🙄

The other day we did something fun about teeth brushing. Click here to see that post.
If you guessed number 1 for my teeth brushing habit, you guessed right. Quite a few of you do it the same way! But some of you do it differently and I’m sorry to say, you’re weird. 🙃
In other news, I wrote and deleted two blog posts for today. Boo. They were too long, too wordy, too inconsequential, too stupid.

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. 🙂

…am I going to type today?
At around the midpoint of my 40s I felt myself standing at the proverbial fork in the road contemplating my path forward.
These were the questions I asked myself:
