Do you know moments like this? It’s been months since writing a blog post. Writing a random thought or word about life is due. Heck. But, since it’s been so long; writing this post is almost awkward. It’s a similar feeling I have when finally making the decision to get in touch with a close family member or friend I have put off calling.
So, instead of discussing my multitude of excuses for not writing; I am just going to say hello and move forward. In the coming days and weeks, I plan on changing things up at kateschannel. Life changes; and so it is time for my blog to do so as well.
I hope all of you have been well; and that you’re preparing for a summer of hot fun in the sunshine. Take care.
There is so much to write, so much to say and so much to do. Here I sit. The notes from this morning are there. I went old-school and grabbed a pen while listening to Riff sing the Mat Man song during snack time this morning.
As ideas and phrases came to mind, I jotted them into my journal. After all, I live with children, a husband and a dog. If I don’t write it all down, I’ll forget those precious thoughts.
But, now, I’m not loving the ideas or phrases I did back at 10:30 am. Maybe that’s because I’m in a different place. I’m always thinking.
Here are some thoughts…
Keeping up with Issa and her evolving interests is equivalent to tracking technology advances. It’s nearly impossible. Change occurs so quickly. But, it is so exciting to witness and to participate. Her interests are so academic and mostly trend toward the sciences. In chronological order — from earliest to now — it was the alphabet, ducks, elephants, mice, dinosaurs, space, and now snakes.
Laughing matters. It breaks up the stress and makes living with children survivable. I sent Riff to his time out spot for a five-minute respite. He was pretty pissed off and began throwing things that were within his reach.
He eyed a pair of my shoes and said, “He’s going to throw your shoes.”
Three inches of snow is finally being forecast for Southeastern Michigan. We have experienced nearly three weeks of 40-plus temps and sunshine.
Forget about parties and beverage preferences. The open exchange of ideas and decisive action are what the world needs right now. To be successful, the world needs to consider all kinds of philosophies. So, who cares about whether they are from the right, left, top or bottom?
Can you imagine how boring life would be if we all thought, felt and expressed ourselves in the same way? So, what if some ideas put forth are a bit freaky? Maybe they are. Maybe they are not. They could be some of the best ideas and they could bring about solutions that are desperately needed for the massive problems confronting our planet. However, the world will never know unless thoughts and ideas are shared, considered and tested.
BTW, my beverage preferences include Bell’sOberon, Italian Reds, spicy rum lemonade and Diary Queen cherry freezes. Where does this place me in the global political spectrum? Who knows and who cares? Maybe I should start my own party. Any ideas on what to name it?
