I’ve made it half way through NaBloWriMo, and WOW! am I ever unimpressed with what I’ve put out there so far. On the other hand, I don’t want to set my (or yours) expectations so high that you are all let down December 1st.
Speaking of December, Doodicus turns 8 in two weeks. I’m SO not ready for that to happen.
I haven’t sent out the password yet. Since my email account for this blog is new, none of you were in it until I started adding addresses based on comments. Then I’ll create a group and send it then. Actually, I’m still trying to come up with an easy password. I thought “password” was too obvious.
While I’m fairly certain I have shaken my two shadows from that other place (which shall go unmentioned), I can’t help but feel paranoid about what-ifs. I’ve avoided any cross-references between this new home and my other as best I could, but as long as I stink, I’ll be leaving a waft of Eu de Old Blog wherever I go.
And with that being said – plus the request to dish on some of my former co-workers – I will have some pwp posts.
I know, I know…what a pain in the ass. Maybe if I was someone who was making oodles of money off my blog that gained notoriety by being fired for even having a blog, I wouldn’t care and I could enjoy sharing Teh Crazy openly.
Email me at thismamasaid (at) gmail (dot) com or leave a comment, and I’ll put you on my list. The GOOD list, not the Shit List. That one’s pretty full already.
Each year I see bloggers take a swing at the NaBloWriMo (National Blog Writing Month) and post each day of November. If it’s someone who normally posts once or twice a month, it’s an impressive feat to be sure. If it’s someone like me who loves to fill your heads with nonsense almost daily? Impressive and Feat are not words that would come to mind.
So with my fourth November of blogging upon me, I have decided to take the plunge. If you’ve been thinking about it but weren’t sure, let me know. Maybe we can be “blogging buddies” where instead of talking each other out of that last cupcake or need convincing to go on that walk, we can come up with ideas for daily posts.
Oh, aren’t I so witty?? I wish I could take credit for the title, but I can’t. You know who you are…
So here you are and you’re probably wondering what’s up with the change. Nothing, really. Too much baggage at that other place (which shall go unmentioned, please).
Everything’s fine, so no need to wonder if I’ve secretly been carrying on an affair with Hugh Jackman or if I’ve struck an evil alliance with Octomom and am now gestating my own litter. Nope, just felt like writing more. More about what? Why, about my son, who is almost all of 8 years old and who was diagnosed with ADHD almost a year ago and how we as a family work with that. Then there’s my wee, little daughter, a gift through the marvels of medical technology, who really is quite cheeky for not even being 18 months old. Yes, I did say “cheeky” and no, I am not British.
Let’s not forget my husband, who I’ve been married to for an eternal 12 years. I say let’s not forget, because sometimes he does drop off the family radar unless I’m peeved.
So I’ve selfishly snatched up the blog name that was dropped over at my other unmentioned blog (that we shall not mention), but now I need to come up with some nicknames for the main characters I discussed above. Any suggestions?
As for what’s next? Probably a lot of the same ole’ same ole’ that you’ve grown to love over the years. Let’s get this party started, shall we?
