sorely lacking inspiration (and air conditioning)
Moving on. I have been musing about what I should be posting lately. Should in a very general sort of way that is. I don’t have any big agenda or rules for myself with regard to content, which is probably obvious. I keep thinking of post topics but feel like they have all be done recently. I am too lazy to link to an example but recent thoughts have included:
Things Henry won’t eat
Henry is now eating anything all the time
Henry’s new sleep habits are making me insane
Crazy, annoying things Henry has been doing lately
New words/phrases Henry is saying
Henry can count now
Henry knows colors now
Jason and I never spend enough time together
Damn it is hot out
Will I ever grow out of being annoyed by my mom?
The cutest thing in the world that Henry now does just like almost every other child his age does
Should I get pregnant/am I pregnant/do I want to be pregnant?
While these are all (or mostly) reasonable, relevant topics, I feel like I have read about each and every one on someone else’s blog recently. In and of itself, that isn’t keeping me from posting as well but lately I feel like my life is so textbook. Even the drama and ups and downs are pretty much the same ones everyone else is going through. That is the way with all of life I suppose, and blogging about it should make me feel connected to other people and create solidarity and commonality but at the moment it just all feels really uneventful and a bit boring. If you could look up 31-year-old, part-time employed, married white female with 2-year-old son, living in comfortable neighborhood in liberal city (that is way too fucking hot at the moment) in NW united states you would find everything you need to know abut my life. This is not a bad thing at all but I feel like in the absence of an insanely cute Henry anecdote or unexpected event I have little to work with at the moment. Perhaps it’s just the heat and if the lying bastards ever stop lying and it actually cools down around here I will come up with something more inspiring.
