Me and My Little Brain.*

Sometimes my brain makes me sad.

I have eluded to this before. It’s just a part of my life.

Someday I’ll delve deep, invite Oprah and her purple sofa over for tea, have a nice chit-chat and get to the root of it all.

But!

Sometimes my brain makes me ridiculously happy and that is what I am talking about today on I Don’t Blog in Alex’s blog series called #BlogSmallJoys.

I would love it if you popped over there to read my post and stuck around long enough to answer the burning question, “What’s that sound?”.

 

I’ll be back here tomorrow with a new post.

You know I will because tomorrow is day 13 of NaBloPoMo and I haven’t missed a day** yet!

Apparently, I love a challenge!

Who knew?

 

 

 

*Have you read the J.D. Fitzgerald series called “The Great Brain”? This title was one of my favourite books in the series when I was a little kid.

**Including today, because this totally counts!

M.O.N.D.A.Y. (Maybe Owl Never Develop A Yen)

 

It’s been over three weeks since I posted anything here.

Maybe no one else noticed, but it has been causing me some pretty gross anxiety and so I thought maybe if I make a pact with myself* to post something new every single day this week I can unblock the writer’s block that is plaguing me, of late.

 

I have lots to say. It’s the getting it out that has become an issue.

Here is a brief list of things I’d like to share with you.

 

  1. End of summer teeny road trip wrap-ups.
  2. Lost and found mysteries.
  3. Fun photos from around the Maritimes.
  4. Super Moon shenanigans.
  5. Cool local events coming up.
  6. Hot yoga perspectives.
  7. Back to school Thing news.
  8. Yummy recipe roundups.
  9. Return to Zumba high jinks.
  10. Guest blog post possibilities.**
  11. Friday Family Fun Night additions.
  12. Exciting movie news for families.
  13. After school special snacks.
  14. Happy-making organizing hacks.
  15. Meal planning mania.

 

So, what do you think? It’s worth a shot, no?

I am going to give it the old college try.***

 

*I’d try making a pact with the Devil, but Beelzebub often disguises himself as potato chips and well, we all know how that would end.

**I can’t make this stuff up. When I went to verify that, yes, in fact I *was* using the word “yen” correctly, (See? See how awful anxiety can be? Second guessing all the things that are typically old hat? Oh yeah! That’s a laugh and a half. NOT!), this is the definition that came up in my Apple “Dictionary”:

yen 2 |yeninformal noun [ in sing. ] a longing or yearning: [ with infinitive ] :  she always had a yen to be a writer. <– Really?!? Even my Mac Mini Mocks me. Ugh.

***Then I am going to change into my poodle skirt, sweater, scarf combo and celebrate with a malted at the soda shoppe! Gee whiz!

A Guest Appearance

A guest never forgets the host who has treated him kindly.

~ Homer

 

Today, I have the exciting honour of being a guest blogger at Mommy Miracles, where Laura O’Rourke is featuring a series on marriage called “Writing Vows“.

I would be doubly honoured if you took the time to read my post here.

 

And while I can’t be 100% certain, I am pretty sure this is what happened when Laura asked people to write for Mommy Miracles.

Who would ever dream of saying no?
