There are times when I’m just going about my daily business of being me that I have these lightening bolt ideas of things to write about (like grade school English grammar lessons such as not ending a sentence in a preposition, but I digress). Inevitably, I can’t find a pen or paper and the idea slides right on out of my brain. I think I write the way that I talk, which is kind of more of an “Wait, wait, let me tell you!” as opposed to something more methodical and deliberate. By the time I actually get to the computer to write, I’ve got the vaguest hint of what it was that I wanted to share, but I can never truly wrap my fingers around it. The word diaphanous comes to mind. So, I just start typing. One thing leads to another, and then another, and then I add some back story and then I’ve got a multi-paragraphed, photo enhanced entry.
Sadly, today isn’t one of those days.
There are several things that I need to be working on, none of which I want to be working on. I should have woken V up from her nap about 20 minutes ago. I need to throw a snack together for the girls to have while they’re at piano lessons. I’ve written and trashed about half a dozen other posts trying to be charming and witty. I’ve putzed around online putting various clothing, shoes and household goods into a number of shopping carts without checking out. I’ve gone to the bathroom about a ten times in the last half hour because I’m trying to drink more water. FYI – drink 750 ml of water in less than 5 minutes, not the best idea.
Hang on. . .I’ll be right back. .
