Rainy Day Blues

"Keep your feet on the floor."

"Toys are not for throwing."

"Use your walking feet."

"Gentle hands please."

"Use your words."

"Do you need to sit on time out?"

"Use your listening ears."


Over and over all day long I found myself repeating these things.  There was no end to it.  I was a broken record or skipping CD.  I was making myself want to scream almost as much as they were making me want to scream!

Sometimes it seems like they forget all the rules when we are stuck inside on rainy days.  Sometimes I wonder if they do it just to make rainy days feel like they are going to last forever.

Today was only day 2 of what looks to be not only a rainy day but a rainy WEEK!  Not sure I will have any remaining sanity by the end of it.

Anyone know of an insane asylum with an empty rubber room?  If it really does rain all week, I am going to need it!

Time Flies . . .

My goodness, I just realized, that it has been over a month since I wrote a blog post!  I wish I had some wonderfully exciting reason for why I haven't written or posted but I've got nothing!  

Life is busy, work is busy and at the end of the day, I am tired!  It seems as though when I want to write and my brain is ready to co-operate, there is no time.  When there is time I am not in the mood to write or my brain won't work with me!

It is time for me to really focus on setting aside some time specifically for me to write each week.  I have lots of stuff bouncing around in my head, begging to be written.  I have found sites with some fun writing prompts that I am eager to try.  

I need to clone myself, my clone could do the housework and I could write!!
