I Am Going To Be A Power Blogger!

I have heard of power blogging.  I’m not sure I fully understand it.  I think it just means going full out and building a big audience and posting a lot? Push those posts through and write about whatever you think people want to see?  That sounds right to me.  It could be fun!  It might annoy some people and that’s one of my super powers!  I will start heated debates about today’s biggest controversies.  Since I’m around kids all day long, five days a week, the topics might not be as serious as some of you might like, but that’s the way it has to be!

Disney Winnie the Pooh Clipart - Disney Clipart Galore Skipping VS Running! Come on now, is there really any question here?  Skipping wins hands down every time!  Who can settle for the drudgery of running when a merry skip can be done!  Picture yourself happily skipping down the street, ignoring the bewildered stares of those you pass.  Which do you prefer?

  Nose wipe on a sleeve, or on someone else’s clothes:  You might wonder why I would even debate this, but apparently in a child’s world this is a decision that must be made.  A lot of kids choose their own sleeves to any tissue.  I much prefer this to the other choice that is made by some.  I have had kids rub their nose on my arms or shirt.  I am not making that up.

 Eating your food, or feeding the dog and then complaining of being hungry:  I would just eat my food, but in the mind of a three year old, the latter choice is the best one.  Feed the dog and giggle a lot while doing it.  When the caregiver warns that if you feed the dog your lunch, you will be hungry, just shrug and keep doing it.  After the food is gone, cry because you want lunch and it’s gone.  I assume this is a valid choice, because it has been repeated.  Which would you choose?

Come on now, I know you are dying to join in the debate on these very serious issues of today!  Don’t be shy!

And, I probably won’t be a power blogger, but I am going to try writing a bit more often!

Seven Facts About Me

A.PROMPTreply nominated me for an award a while ago (seems like years ago), and I am so sorry I didn’t get around to doing the work on that!  Life has been very, very exhausting and busy lately.  I come home from my new job (not sure it’s going to work out), so tired I’m almost in tears.  One thing you did mention a couple of times was that you wanted to read seven facts about me, so I thought I would at least try to do that!

1.  I hate odd numbers.  My OCD demands I do things in even numbers, and four is my favorite number.  It can be very frustrating when I’m in a hurry and I have to put a silly lid on the coffee can four times, or open and close a drawer four times!  I get odd looks when I do this, too.  Most of the time, I don’t think I realize I’m doing it since I’ve done this for over fifty years!  On good days, I can get away without having to do this.

2.  I hate things that are upside down (OCD again, sorry).  While grocery shopping, I will spend some time in the canned food aisle, making sure I don’t see any upside down cans!

3.  I try to be a positive person, even though I just used the word HATE twice.   I guess what I mean is I try to see positive things in negative situations. My mom used to say I was a true Libra because of the scales symbol.  I tend to try to see both sides of an argument and find the good on both sides.  I think it’s rare that with a disagreement that one opinion is 100% right or wrong.  Both sides will have valid points!

4.  I have no decorating sense and I don’t care about furniture, rugs, decorations, etc.  As long as a place is clean and functional, it’s good enough for me!

5.  I have always wanted to write a book.  I would write short stores all of the time when I was young.  I still do, but I never share them.  I think I only kept one, and the rest have long since been destroyed.  I don’t really have the talent and I’m terrified of actually letting anyone see my writing!  I can hear and see the story in my head, but when I try to put it to words, it just does not work.

6.  As I get older, I find I am scared of things that I didn’t even blink at when younger.  I used to love going on trips alone, or shopping alone, or long walks alone.  Now, I get so nervous because I’m afraid the car will break down, or some other problem will arise, and I will not have anyone to help.  I have been told that’s pretty normal.

7.  I think I know everything.  Just ask my kids!  They will agree!

That might be the best I can do at this point.  Thanks for the nomination, thought.  It was nice of you to think of me.
