I missed my post yesterday. I want to say that I tried to blog, but the truth is that I didn’t. In fact, I didn’t even think about it. For the first time all week, Runt and I were mostly grooving well together, and we spent the day playing and being silly with one another. And when he was tucked into bed, all I wanted to do was curl up to a TV show with Hubster, then head off to bed at a semi-decent hour. So, that’s exactly what I did. And today, for the first time in WEEKS, I actually feel a whole lot more like myself than I have in a while. I’ll still get 31 posts in by the end of the month…you’ll just have to suffer through a double post at some point in the next couple of weeks.
To make up for my silence yesterday, I decided to do a VLOG today. This is something I’ve only done once before but that I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a bit more often. I figure the challenge is a good time to jump into it.
Armed with a vlogging prompt from the awesomeness that is Mama Kat’s Pretty Much World Famous Writing Prompts at Mama Kat’s Losin’ It, I grabbed the web cam when we headed outside for our morning playtime today.
While Runt grabbed his water table and insisted that he would fill it up himself, I made myself comfy on the front porch, where I’d been ordered to sit down and watch him play, and got ready to give my neighbors new reasons to give me strange looks while wondering what in the hell I am doing. Er, I mean show you all the place where a good amount of my blogging happens.
It took all of about 17 seconds for Runt to decide that this vlogging thing looked way more interesting than his water table.
Apparently, he’s got some important stuff to talk about.
What can I say? Cheese is important business in this 2.5 year old’s life. Far more important than me simply showing you our front porch, talking about how I spend my mornings outside, hiding in the shade, and working on blog posts in an attempt to distract myself from the crankiness that tends to arise within me when it’s pushing 100 degrees.
