I keep thinking "Wow, I should write a blog post about this!" - and then it never happens. It wasn't just having a sixth child that threw my world upside down though. Last summer, my 80 year old mother fell and fractured her spine. The injury amped up her dementia, so she is needing a lot more care and supervision. With my already full schedule having to expand to accommodate taking care of mom, something had to go... and that something was blogging. I think we have finally settled into a routine that will allow me some time to jot down my thoughts and ideas though, and it will feel good to have some place to express ME. I also realized that one of the reasons why I was having so much trouble blogging was that I wasn't blogging with my true voice... I was trying to fit in a mold of perky religious politically-correct and demure bloggers, afraid that I would offend someone if I blogged like I really speak. It makes it too hard to think of things to post when you are pretending to be something you're not. I'm obnoxious, sarcastic, loud, agnostic, and can curse a blue-streak. So, if you're still on board, then hold on tight.... Summer is just around the corner, and I'll be posting.
