It's Holidailies time again and I'm only two days late!
I've been working on the first post for this December for about 30 minutes now. I started a nice little piece about surprises, but about 2/3 of the way through I stopped. The post was supposed to be just sort of light and pithy, but wound up lumbering along, getting far too heavy for itself as I had a bit of a self- revelation* with regards to me and surprises that frankly makes me kinda look like an ass, so we'll just let that be for awhile. See what happens with it.
As you can tell, I'm not quite into the swing of writing yet.
Holidailies very kindly gave me a prompt-- something about holiday recipes -- but it didn't do much for me so I was winging it. Maybe I should go back and think about recipes for a bit.
I haven't posted a whole lot since the beginning of the school year, and if you go back a few posts you'll probably see why. It's been a challenging year. I thought it might be best if I didn't make every December post a rant about what is happening to public education, though. Unfortunately, that's what is taking up the majority of my brain space at the moment and it's been hard to find the light and pithy lately.
There's a cat trying to sit on the computer now, and I think I've had all the useful thoughts I'm going to have for today. Perhaps tomorrow I will find the funny and create a post of wry observations on the nature of life or children or cats.
Or maybe I'll just post my favorite holiday recipe.
*The revelation was that I kinda like to be in control of things and have difficulty when I'm not in charge, which, honestly, isn't much of a revelation for anyone who's known me for more than half an hour.
