After waking at 3am to the glow of the TV that didn't quite turn off when someone reached for the remote somewhere between 12 and 3am, and the dull ache (OK pain) in my upper left cheek where I swear my tongue can feel the hole the needle made going in Wednesday morning...I decided to just get up. Yup. Just me and my blanky and my computer (and diet Pepsi of course). So I decide to catch up on unfinished business (yeah right) as I am perusing the web looking for clever ideas to help me with the letter I have to write to entice families in Lauren's class to participate in a non baby shower baby shower for the teacher that is due in 8 weeks...I stumble across a Pennsylvania woman's blog ( I think it is PA?). 45 minutes later and 6 months of her families life flowing through my brain I decide I am not a very good blogger. I laughed, I almost cried, I was WOWED by the photographs and her amazing ability to add (albeit very sarcastically) an upbeat spin on all things "her"...I was feeling pretty down on my ability to keep our readers reading. I mean this woman made getting gum stuck on the bottom of her shoe and not noticing till it stuck to the brake pedal of her car sound like a GOOD DAY. WOW.
So, I marked as her a favorite in my Internet explorer Blog folder, why you might ask, just so I can torture myself some more and keep reading her fantastically funny and insightful posts...Then I decided there was no better thing than to blog about my demise as a blogger....
To help you understand just how demented I can be I considered not sharing a link to her blog here...why would I want any of my 3 readers to find a blog far more interesting than mine to go read? They might never come back...then I remembered/decided...that people probably do like this blog too...sometimes it is funny (the song behind the leaf post was great), sometimes the pictures are great and sometimes people even post a comment or two giving me that boost of confidence as if to say "hey glad you blogged it I enjoyed it too".
So the bottom line is...This blog probably isn't so bad, someone out there might stumble on it at 3am and read for an hour, I am sure I am not the only insane person in this world and If you have $700 billion to lend I am willing to take it.
the other woman's blog....(PS in case you falsely assume she is any older than me she is not...she will be 35 in November...sob sob)
