Welcome to our today. This ride may take many twists and turns unexpectedly. Please keep arms and legs inside at all times. Those with back problems, heart conditions, or pregnant are welcome to ride. Riders are cautioned, however, and must proceed at own risk. Enjoy your ride!
I am not even sure how seven days have passed without posting. I couldn't believe it until I saw it with my own eyes.
First things first: earlier I was reading Knocked Up by Rebecca Eckler when I came across the line, "....doesn't mean I'm not cool and hip."
That just cracked me up for a couple of reasons:
1. The orginial title for this blog was going to be I'm Not Cool and Hip. But I didn't like the flow.
2. That is the number one search query that bring people to this blog.
Secondly: Apparently my grammar issues have rubbed off on my middle child. We were at Big Daddy's tent at the Goat Festival (I know. Please.) when he says, "Mommy. Look at that trailer over there. They have (uses his hands to make air quotes) those quotation marks around 'fried' and 'pies'. That doesn't look right."
::beams with pride::
I tell him, "You are right. It isn't."
He spent the rest of the day looking for errors.
Also, later in the day, I may or may not have corrected a stack of someone's business cards that were left in on top of the hair dryer in Burger King. The cards were proud of the fact that "to local companys" are opening soon.
I wish I had taken a card. I'd like to know what these "companys" do. Perhaps I could have offered my services....
Speaking of grammar, I was reading another book and found a subject/verb disagreement. I guess even the best editors can make a mistake.
Third: There are a couple of reasons I haven't written in a week. Well, excuses would probably be a more accurate description.
A. The kids are on Fall Break. We have one computer--a desktop. They are loud and I am used to quiet during the day.
B. I spent one WHOLE day reading.
C. Big Daddy has been getting ready for the festival. He needed my "help."
D. Yesterday, I ended up spending all day at aforementioned festival. (It wasn't bad. Cute, actually. Probably nicer than our state fair.)
E. When I went to write the next day's post for Sara's Challenge , after perusing the pages to find my style, it was then I realized that I didn't have one. Never have, really. (For day number 17)
That led to other feelings of doubt, which led to other feelings....
Basically I've been having a pity party. Which probably could have been avoided if I had been taking my prescription properly.
Anyway, I am feeling better now. Or something like it. And shall resume posting regularly soon. Of course, we have one more week of Fall Break. But I will give it the old college try.
Thank you for riding the Cool and Hip Emotional Roller Coaster today. Please follow the arrows for the proper exiting procedure. Be sure to take all personal belongings. Anything left behind will be sold on eBay, Craigslist, or distributed as employee Christmas gifts. Have a lovely day! We hope to see you again soon.
