I want to write this blog. I want to enjoy writing this blog. I also want to stick to this blog because I committed to it. However, I do not like what I am writing. Or, how I am writing. It just doesn't feel like ME. And, at the end of the day, that's what I want this blog to be about. ME. I want to document my life. Because I think it matters - I think I matter. Just like I think every living creature on this beautiful Earth matters.
So, I have thought about what to do with my blog and instead of going on hiatus, which was my initial idea, I am going to start doing a Weekly News Journal/Blog. I'd like to try things differently. Like I've said before, this is all trial and error for me. So, I'd like to see how it goes if I just wrote about whatever rather than a specific topic...
WTF Moment of the Week: I thought maybe I'd try out an idea. It's called WTF Moment of the Week and it is a little blurb about something that happened to me or my family during the week that deserves a WTF statement. To be honest, the only time I really use this phrase is when I am driving. Many profanities leave my mouth when I'm driving around here, but I don't want this to be about traffic. The only thing that I have for a WTF moment this week is the fact that we got, yet another, foot of snow. Everyone keeps telling me that this isn't normal, but all I can say is WTF! I have shoveled entirely too much snow. Too much.
Liam turned 4 on Valentine's Day. I told him the story of how he was born. I'm not sure he was REALLY listening, but I teared up (of course!!). Time really needs to slow down. I know everyone says that, but it's hard to believe that it was four years ago that I blew my nose and my water broke. I need to work on seizing each moment so that I can cherish them that much longer.
Finally, big news from the real-estate sector: we found the most awesomest historic house! It needs some major updating, but it comes with three acres and, wait for it... a BARN! It is massive. Built in the 1780s, this home quite possibly saw the American Revolution. We first saw this house when we found out that we were moving to MA (back in September). It has been on and off the market for about 10 years... I'm wondering if it's haunted... Probably not, but the history in this home is worth it. This is a project that we seriously considering. Stay tuned for updates.
Until next week, namaste.
