I looked at the tablet beside me which contained a list of possible topics, unfinished memes, and things the kids have said this week.
None of the aforementioned items appealed to me.
I tried to type.
I deleted at least 3 short posts.
Then I heard it.
The eerie silence.
I jumped up from the computer and turned the corner to see Cole with this in his hand.
Not funny. (though he thinks so!)
"What did you write on Cole?", I pleaded.
"Nuffing", he replied.
"Show me Cole. Show mommy what you drew on."
"NOW!", my voiced raised.
Then he produced his hands which he said he "Tattooed".
What do you think?
Is he destined for employment at LA INK?
Then I saw this on the furniture.
He decided his basketball needed a little autograph too.
I should have seen this coming.
I woke up to a chilly 48 degrees.
The high today will only be 60 degrees.
Yesterday was 70 degrees.
Tomorrow will be 78 degrees.
Today it is 60!
Which meant I had to flip the heat back on.
I was hoping that little switch would not be touched for another seven months.
Today it is overcast.
Today it is dreary.
I have black permanent ink in places I should not see black permanent ink.
I went online to do my banking.
I have $1500 less in the bank than my keeping-the-running-balance-in-my head said it should be.
After doing six loads of laundry yesterday, I still have three more.
I have not had a shower yet.
Cole has been screaming at me all morning that he wants to eat a bag of chocolate chips.
The whole 24oz. bag.
Not. going. to. happen.
Today I learned yet another important fact.
Never think you have NOTHING to write about.
If you wait, (oh, say about 30 seconds) something inevitably will happen.
Something that will probably be "Blog worthy".
Yep, I should have seen the writing on the wall.
