i keep thinking that in order to come back to blogging
(which i really truly love
& can't exactly remember why i've been gone so long except,
kids, husband, house, life, wash, rinse, repeat)
in order to come back,
i need to have a really awesome post which inspires others to enjoy their lives while simultaneously explaining why i've been gone & also looking really cute...
but guess what i figured out?
i just need to start
& then maybe those things will happen also
& if they don't?
well, i started & for that, i'm glad.
look at that.
one whole paragraph already written.
score one for me.
i do need to thank this blogger, though, for inspiring me to just start typing
(go ahead, go see who she is & start reading,
i will understand if you get lost in her awesomeness & never come back here again.
i just spent the last 3 hours reading past posts.
i am not exaggerating.
i never ever, ever, ever do.
she's really good.
but maybe after a while you could consider coming back here?
because i've got a few things to share & to say, too.
& sometimes i'm a little bit funny, so that's something to look forward to, right?)
once i start typing watch out, okay?
because i am horrible & rarely use capitals or correct punctuation
aren't punctuation marks just the accessories of the grammar world?
when one thing doesn't work with the sentence, you try another...
my favorite right now is the colon, i am almost positive that i am using it incorrectly
but it's just so cute...
another way punctuation is like accessories?
the more you pile on, the worse it starts to look
necklaces AND earrings AND bracelets AND hairclips AND ankle bracelets AND belly chains
& then you have to swear as you remove it piece by piece:
i have a point, right?)
so now it's 2:30...
that's a.m., people
i was not reading blogs for 3 hours while my children were awake.
i was merely spending the time i should have been sleeping reading blogs
so tomorrow (today)
i will be a walking zombie of joy that my children will not want to be around anyway...
ah, the zombie-mom circle of life.
oh, well, the point is
i like doing this & so i shall...
i have already written an entire post on why i want to start writing posts
& i think i have convinced myself.
that's another score for me.
you get five scores if you have made it to this point!
six, if you resisted the urge to circle my mistakes in red pen...
& so in future days
(perhaps even later in this one)
i will be writing
about life & love & nature & grace & the creation of the earth
oh, wait, that's the plot of 'the tree of life'.
i will be writing about kids & marriage & home
& happy times & super crappy times & very boring times
& a really big dream that i have just started to put out there because
it was just growing & growing & while i have a big heart,
it just wasn't meant to live there any longer...
i hope you'll join me every once in a while
or maybe even every single while
because i'm excited to be back
& i just can't spend my whole life on pinterest...
though it is very tempting...
