I should write more

Yes. I should. I know.

I drove home from work tonight thinking about all the things that I could write about. I have a backlog of things to say. I think I’m approaching the point where I need to either get it all out- take a weekend and do nothing but type- or I need to just forget it all and start over. On the 30 minute drive home, in the middle of the night, I made a mental list of all the things I could discuss, the wording that I would use, clever things to say, whether or not I’d post this blog address on my Facebook page. The one thing that I decided I would definitely NOT write about is the fact that I haven’t made a post and that I have so much to write about that I don’t know where to begin. Hey, guess what……

So, as we’re approaching the end of the year, I think I’ll make a New Year’s Resolution to post here more. I won’t go as far as to commit to a post every day (although that would be nice), but I WILL make time to write a little something.

Now if only I could figure out how to add an hour to the day….



Yeah, it’s Strep….again. Third time in 6 weeks, 4th time this year. What’s going on??? At least I’ve got it down to a science and know exactly what to look for to catch it early. I just wish it didn’t kick my ass every single time.

Clearly there’s a silent carrier in our house. Or maybe there’s something I’m not thinking of that’s reinfecting me.

And yes, I threw out my toothbrush. Stop asking me.

I can’t be sick

I can’t be sick. I can’t be sick. I can’t be sick. I can’t be sick. I can’t be sick. I can’t be sick. I can’t be sick. I can’t be sick. I can’t be sick. I can’t be sick. I can’t be sick. I can’t be sick.

I had strep throat twice in November. I had a stomach bug last week. Now my throat is hurting on one side. I feel fine except for my throat (which worries me even more). I don’t see any white spots though. Last time my throat was blotchy as soon as my throat hurt.


Being a Working Mom

Childcare issues…..enough said. Why isn’t the world arranged in a way that makes raising children AND working outside the home effortless? Why does it seem like we’re all treading water?

I’ll likely write more when I’m not so blindingly upset.

Picking a Title is Hard!

Really, it is. You need to find 1 word, or a short series of words, to make you sound clever, edgy, intelligent, cool. It’s too much pressure.

I’m a complicated person. No one word defines me. *I think I heard that in a movie once. Pay no attention.

I feel like I’m exactly the sort of person who SHOULD have a blog. If for no other reason, to exercise my typing fingers. I don’t know, I think everyone has a blog now. I suppose you don’t have to be THAT special.

Anyway, when I’m driving home from work at midnight and there are no cars to be seen, I think about things…strange things, normal things, parenting things, work things, society things. I find myself perfecting the phrasing that I’d use if I were to write about it. I’ve got a bunch of stuff knocking around in my head. So, maybe I’ll actually get some of down in writing and release it into the world.

I’m a lot of things. At the risk of sounding like a tool, I AM a little bit complicated. I can’t write everything about myself in one title. So here I am, Simply Jess.
