Well, this is it. This is my 100th post.
For some reason I have been putting this post off for a while -this 100th post- like it meant anything different than the 99 before it.
I’m not sure why. It honestly bugs me a little. Do I think I’m special or something?
Maybe I was just busy and I’m making a huge deal and tons of excuses for not writing.
Nope. That’s a lie. That’s totally not it. I was scared. I really was.
I think I wanted this post to be something super and spectacular- an out-of-this-world celebration of…. what? I think that’s the question I’m really asking myself. What am I doing in this little spot of Infinite Internet?
I just talk.
I just talk in the hopes that maybe somebody will read what I have to say and feel something… anything. Maybe understand what it’s like to only have conversations with a two-year-old for the entire day. Maybe feel the pissed-offness of a bad day with me… everybody has them, right? And as sad and selfish as it is, it feels good to know someone’s in the Bad Day boat with you- even if it’s just for a second, like you’re not the only one who sucks for the day. I like to think that somebody out there can share in the awesome feeling that comes when you watch your own child grow and learn and just be… without feeling like the weird mom who talks about her kids just a little too much. You know, the one who gets eye rolls and awkward silences at the end of every brag session.
I really like this picture.
I like to share the things that I make. I also like having a little outlet. It’s nice. I can just sit and type whatever comes into my mind without having to censor it or worry about anybody else’s feelings but my own. It’s great, because that doesn’t happen all the time for me. I was never a blogger. I thought they were all kind of weird, to be honest. I’ve changed my mind. It’s fantastic.
New dress on its way to Florida.
I know that I’m not the best writer, I don’t claim to be. I know that I’m not the best mom on the planet. I don’t claim that either. Believe you me, there’s plenty of times when I’ve ignored my screaming child to do something for myself first- in a totally normal and self-preserving type of way. And that’s ok. Some of you may think that’s totally wrong. I don’t care. Really, I don’t. Actually, I think you should try it.
I’ll wait here.
I’m not the best wife in the world… who is? But I try, I really do try.
Sometimes I get it right.
I’m not the best seamstress, quilter, blogger, blah blah blah. The list goes on and on. The point is I’m happy. I like where I’m at. I like what I’m doing. And it’s ok with me to not be the best. And it’s ok with me that it’s ok with me to not be the best. Get it? Does that make sense? It’s perfectly clear to me, I just want to make sure you’re following.
New dress, Fall colors.
All I’m saying is that I’m just a normal girl/mom/wife/maker of things/occasional blogger that gets her kicks out of writing the happenings of life on a digital page for everyone to see. Who knows? This whole blog thing might come in handy one day.
I'll show you the rest later, this is just a fun sneak peek.
1 1. According to me, Fall has begun. Summer ended a couple weeks ago, but just today Fall started. Don’t ask me how I know, I just know.
2. 2. I don’t like Wal-mart and it bugs me that they usually have the best prices so I feel like I have to do the money-saving thing and go there.
3 3. I like super hot showers. Usually I feel guilty if I take one- the whole global warming thing really gets me- but today I decided that I would make a point to not feel guilty the next time I take one and just enjoy it.
4 4. I really, really love my hubby. Like, really. I know I don’t tell him enough, but I really, REALLY do. He must love me back, because he’s still here and I’m sure that’s no easy task…
5. I thought about dyeing my hair dark for a second- just a second- and then I remembered when I did that my first year of college and quickly kicked that thought to the curb.
6 6. I don’t think the stuff at Anthropologie should cost so much money.
7 7. My kid is really fricken hilarious… like all the time.
8. 8. I wish she listened to me.
9 9. Toenails are stupid.
Her face in this picture totally cracks me up.
Why these? I dunno. I like ‘em. How’s that?
All you have to do to enter the drawing is become a follower of my bloggy-blog (if you’re not one already) at the top right hand side of the page and then leave a comment on this post. That’s it. I will announce the winner on Monday. Sound good? Mmmk. Good Luck! Oh, and if you win, and you REALLY don't like any of these color combos and I feel like being reasonable, I will make the pillow covers in whatever colors your heart desires. I guess.
