I have been itching to write. I have tossed around quite a few topics but every idea I talk myself out of before writing the first word. It is insecurity.
So. Today. To bust through this silliness. There will be no hesitation. Just writing.
I am joining Lisa-Jo Baker for five minutes of writing. no editing. Prompt is 'reflect'.
This past week or so has been a one....two....quadruple punch to the face.
All four of us were taken down by a mean muggin' virus. We fell like flies that just hit the zapper.
On the mommy front - my efforts were compromised by a completely consuming cough and a flickering battery life. So, I made a 'not very good deal' with myself.
[Let them watch TV-------as much as they want---------as long as there is rest and peace.]
And there was A LOT of TV watching, all day (and by all day I mean 8+ hours), pretty much every day.
But it was quiet, no one argued, I didn't have to raise my voice, I was 'allowed' to be sick.
Payment for this deal will be stiff.
Well, payment.....that is a whole other post entirely.
Have you ever made a 'not very good deal' with yourself as a parent?
Thanks for reading.
