I was going to title this post “Mash Up Monday”, but then I realized it was Wednesday.
You see, I’ve been STRESSED OUT and OVERWHELMED lately. It’s the end of the school semester and holiday shopping season. I’m also in the middle of too many home improvement projects going on at once. I can’t decide whether to study, paint that spot behind the toilet in the bathroom or hop on Amazon to make sure I’m not missing out on any exciting Deals of the Day. The laundry and dishes are piling up and I could feed a small country with crumbs on the kitchen floor and under the couch cushions.
So, with all that going on, I’ve been behind on my blogging. Not that I haven’t had plenty to write about, I’ve started a few entries that have been just hanging out in my drafts folder.
In an effort to do a little house cleaning, I’ve made a To-Do list and delegated some chores to family members and I’m going to combine all those unfinished thoughts into one
spectacular blog post MASH UP!
The unfinished blog that’s been hanging out the longest was “The Joys of Motherhood”
“I don’t want to be a mom.”, said my daughter. “You have to deal with too much POOP.”
This after witnessing me plunge a toilet that not one kid, but TWO kids pooped in (and not just any poop…corn poop!), and then having to scrub rabbit poop of her bedroom wall because it was “too icky” to do herself.
How does rabbit poop even GET on the wall???
That’s as far as I got. I was going to expound upon all the thankless tasks we Mommies do. The things no one tells you about, and you never in a million years thought you’d be doing on a daily basis, but my day further went to shit (pun intended) and I didn’t have the time or energy to finish writing.
Next on the list is “Down The Rabbit Hole”
This one was about how something I learned in school sparked something in my brain and I couldn’t wait to get home and do some research.
It started with my curiosity being piqued by the Limbic system and the role it plays in depression. It ended with me conducting a science experiment on
a guinea pig my husband after a six hours of following link after link, hence the “rabbit hole” metaphor.
It all got a little too science-y and probably very boring to anyone who’s not a nerd so I decided to scrap it. Or, at least postpone it until I’ve collected more data from the on-going experiment.
I’ve included it in my mash up because:
- Early results on the effects of L-methylfolate and magnesium taurate on treatment resistant depression are promising (told you it was science-y!)
- I just really liked the picture of Alice’s legs sticking up out of the ground.
This brings me to my third and final unfinished post. This one was another list. “Ten Things That Get My Goat”
- The Royal We, particularly when someone says, “We should (fill in random thing no one wants to do here)” when what they really mean is YOU should do it because it needs to be done and I have no intention of actually helping you.
- The whole “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays” debate. Shut the Hell up already and just be grateful anyone is even talking to your grumpy ass!
- Donald Trump
Well, there you have it folks. That’s it for my mash up. I hope you liked it because if things keep going like they have been, it may end up being a regular thing!
