BFFs: Charlie Brown, Eeyore, and Me (for the moment, at least)

Do you ever feel as if you are a day late and dollar short when it comes to something? I do, and while I have always been on the late side, I am now broke, as well, which does not a good blogger make. I started this little blogging adventure almost two years ago as a way to record thoughts and events for my children, so that they may read and bask in fond memories long after I have gone -either physically or mentally, but life can sometimes get in the way, which is not to say that we lack blog-worthy experiences during my ever frequent gaps in posting, it just seems increasingly difficult to write about them.

It could be that I am going through some sort of mid-blogging crisis...or maybe it’s just that, since school has started back, writing feels more like work than a hobby...and it could also be because of a lot of crap going on in my profession (especially on the state and district level - we’ve even been featured on the Fox and Friends morning news show a couple times in the last week or so), but I feel that much of what I have to say would be on those migraine-inducing, school-related topics and, frankly, that would not make for such pleasant reading for you...that and I’d probably be fired or sued or both. Okay, so maybe “fired or sued” was a bit dramatic, but you never know anymore. I know what you're thinking... just shut up and go to bed, Tyla.

I will try to press on, dear readers. The three of you and my children deserve it.

"It's snowing still," said Eeyore gloomily.
"So it is."
"And freezing."
"Is it?"
"Yes," said Eeyore. "However," he said, brightening up a little, "we haven't had an earthquake lately."

It's o.k. I think it's in the air. We can drag our blogs around kicking and screaming...together. :*

Hi, Tyla! I had to smile while reading this. Hang in there! Writing will be fun again.
When my kids were little, my oldest daughter was about 9 and complaining about her upcoming braces and the fact she wore glasses. My younger daughter piped up and said, "Well, at least she doesn't have to wear a hearing aid." We still laugh and repeat this to each other years later!
So here's to looking on the bright side!!! :)

Carrot, I think I can manage that :)... and Sonya, that is too cute! That kind of encouragement is what younger siblings do best.

So, thanks, girls. I needed that little pick-me-up.
