Hey guys–I’m really sorry I’ve been slacking on the blog lately. I didn’t post a Week in Review because I took zero pictures last week and I have NO IDEA what I did to even write about. I did, however, post a couple wordier posts on Instagram so if you don’t follow me on there yet, then add me! If you’re not on Instagram, I don’t blame you at all–it took me a long time to get on the bandwagon. But now? I LOVE IT. I don’t even have a Facebook app on my phone anymore; it’s all about Instagram.
Social media can be a dick sometimes but as long as we’re aware of it and don’t get caught up in the comparison trap, then it can serve us, rather than the other way around. For instance? I swear I have never eaten healthier than I have since I started following all these athletes and their stories! I get so much inspiration from them and not just daily but hourly. I used to spend so much time googling recipes and reading cookbooks but this way, I can see what I’m about to make, I can jot down a quick comment or question and it gets answered often within minutes! I love it.
Besides all that, I’ve had a few things on my heart lately that I wish I could write about but find it tricky to do so just because it’s a bit too personal. I know I can do it because I’ve written about such things before without divulging too much all while getting my point across and so I definitely want to give it a whirl.
This is boring. I’m boring myself. Quite honestly, I can’t wait to drink a bunch of wine, no! Tequila. Wait! Vodka and Coke Zero. Oh! And a Ceasar. Then put on something a bit slutty, dance around the kitchen to something inappropriate, and then? Sit down at my laptop to write. To write something good.
So, that’s what’s new over here. The Hotyssey broke down yesterday (the alternator went) so Callum and I were stuck in the house all day today. I had to brew my afternoon cup of coffee myself rather than pick it up in a Starbucks drive-thru. Oh the horror. My oldest boys finish school tomorrow–both of them passed (one of them just barely and one of them with straight As but I won’t say which ones, but you’d never guess)–so I’ll have one in grade 12 and one in grade 10! Katie survived her first year of middle school so she’s going to be in grade 7 next year–it will probably feel good to not be the youngest in the school anymore.
What else what else… Callum got Katie in the eye with the corner of a book and now she’s got a shiner. My bum issues are under control thanks to Procto-foam (doesn’t it sound like a superhero?!?! “This is a job forrrrr…..PROCTOFOAM!!!!). Wouldn’t it be cool if I got paid by hemorrhoid cream companies to write this blog?! My boobs are getting frigging huge, and I’m a bit worried about it. They went from a 32A (padded, push-up) to a 32D (lightly lined) and the latter are holding on for dear life. Our weather sucks, Father’s Day is coming up and it’s making me anxious, but the cat’s flea problem is completely under control.
I’ll stop typing now. Here are some photos just in case you didn’t read any of this.
What’s new with you guys?
If you could have one company pay you to write sponsored posts, which one would you pick?
Is my writing way better when I’m drinking?
