MOM HELPS ME BLOG - YOU HAVE IT OR YOU DON'T
Moms are great. They help you with anything. They help feed you when you are a child. They help dress you and take you to school. They see you through bad hairstyles and scary boyfriends. They send you emails like "I was in the store shopping and saw some slippers for you. They are in the mail." Mine even helps me blog.
I have not been in the mood for blogging lately for a few reasons. It bores me. Also - my life is hectic and annoying. 10-12 hour frantic days at work leaving me tired and barely able to feed myself much less recap it in a few short paragraphs.
So where have I been? What have I been doing? You know me. Sort of. Sometimes I have to hide or nest before I feel alive again. This morning I feel alive again. So what. It took a while.
Over the weekend I reached out to my mom in desperation.
K: Mom...I need some blogging ideas. Can I interview you for my blog?
M: I'd love to help honey but my basement if flooded.
K: Oh. Ok. No problem I understand.
That night I got the following email from Mom,
"Some possible blog ideas...
-weird costumes your mother made you for halloween when other kids were witches and bums
-pumpkin carving and roasting seeds
-storing out of season clothes in small nyc apartments and funny ways to "hide them"
-growing up with land phones and always wanting privacy for your calls and now only having cell phones and talking anywhere at any time
-the baking gene. you have it or you don't."
These days I am learning more and more about myself the older and wiser I get. Accepting that sometimes I have it and sometimes I don't.
