I'm having the hardest time finding my blogging groove this summer. I think part of my issue is that I like to blog chronologically so when I get behind on events that I want to write about here then I have a hard time blogging at all.
The other day I started a post about our 4000 mile summer road trip but it got so long that I lost interest and therefore it's not finished yet.
So how about some randomness instead? This is really just stream of consciousness stuff. Because I've gotta start somewhere...
:::I've never loved Colorado more than I've loved it this week. The temps all over the nation are INSANE! I think everyone is having record-breaking heat but us. I'm tempted to talk about our weather but that would just be cruel.
:::The kids and I knocked out most of our school supply shopping this week. I'm not completely finished because my son doesn't find out what he needs until the first day of class. I'm sure it will be loads of fun to search for specific things with thousands of others trying to round up the same items AFTER school begins.
:::I always take some time at the end of summer to evaluate what I want on my plate for the fall semester. I've added a few things this fall and am dropping some stuff too. I like how my schedule is shaping up.
:::I watched Toddlers and Tiaras tonight for the first time. OH MY GOSH. I found it quite disturbing. Makes me wonder what kind of message those young girls are getting about self-image when every aspect of their appearance "needs" to be altered to be pageant worthy. Actually, I don't have to wonder at all. It's pretty evident.
:::I'm definitely trying to milk all the fun out of our last few weeks of summer. Our school calendar got shifted around this year and the result is that we start school later than I can ever remember. I am NOT complaining!
:::I cleared my google reader today. I had over 400 unread posts when we got back from our trip last weekend. I wanted to read them all but that number just kept increasing every day and it overwhelmed me, so I took a deep break and hit the "mark all as read" tab. Serenity ensued. Seriously.
:::It's WAY past my bedtime, so I'm signing off and I'm not even going to go back and edit this post because I'm too tired.
Peace out, peeps.
