So now I am awake, showered, and dressed at it is just about 9:30. Swell. I am definitely going to need a high dose of caffeine to get me through the day. Plus side- I don't have to babysit or help babysit today... a slight reprieve, since my sister and I will have all the kids tomorrow, Friday, and allllll day Saturday.
While I couldn't fall asleep last night I was thinking about the purpose of this blog. Why am I writing it? I write my entries as if I were talking to an audience (even though I'm pretty sure no one reads this). A very talented and published author of a series I hope to write for one day gave me the advice to write- every, single, solitary day. So I am truly trying to keep up with that. But it doesn't always happen. So perhaps my vision for this blog is a little off-kilter? I can write about living with a chronic illness, but that might be boring to healthy people. I can write about being an unemployed teacher, but that makes me too angry sometimes. I could write about the state of the world, politics and the zoo our country has become... but I don't know all that much about politics.
So until I figure out this blog's true purpose, I'll write a variety of entries and see what feels most comfortable.
