Blogging makes me feel both less lonely and more disconnected. I get to network with like-minded people. I get to learn from other unschoolers and parents. I get feedback from readers. But because I've never met most of these people, it occasionally feels a bit like talking on the edge of a dark forest - my voice goes in, but I'm not always sure who's listening.
I've posted before about how I have difficulty transitioning from being away to being home and back in the swing. I don't jump back into the swing. I circle it, I see it with new eyes, I get a little passive aggressive about getting back into the swing. And I don't blog.
But here I am, without much to say at all. I figure, therefore, it's a good time to wrap up some loose ends. Finish some stories. Fill in some blanks. Reattach some dangling participles.
The bathroom paint color dilemma. Remember how I asked y'all for suggestions on what color to paint my bathroom? Update - I haven't painted it yet. It still looks like this:
Only with a lot more hair, dried toothpaste, and dirty towels.
My request for an editor for my writing was fulfilled! Lori of MORTpiphanies has been working with me to polish up my writing. And holy wow, have I learned a lot already. Thank you Lori - you rock! Also, Christa of Sandy Feet has provided constructive criticism as well. And yes, I thought her name was Sandy. Sandy Feet. Well, guess what - It's not! Thank you
Sandy Christa! You rock too!
Remember this? Well, just between you and me... It WAS what it looked like! Shhhhhh.
But the update I'm most excited to give... the news I'm most smitten to share... the follow-up you've been looking for... Brady's band, Just Maybe, did audition! They've got new recordings up on their MySpace page. That's my boy singing, too. Gush gush gush. They were incredibly nervous but they did it. They were the youngest band there but they did it. They were the most inexperienced band there but they did it. They did it!
I think that's it for my updates.
My spring to-do list is long so I may not be posting as often. But I always say that and then write 5 posts in one sitting, so we'll see.
Thanks for being here. :-)
