Sometimes life gets a little nutty. You feel like it’s wildly out of control, and you just want something sane in the midst of it all. This will sound weird, but the sanity in the middle of my life will be the craziness of a blogging marathon called NaBloPoMo. And no, I’m not speaking some foreign language. NaBloPoMo stands for National Blog Posting Month.
So as I sit here waiting for my pregnant daughter to tell me she is in labor which will begin the sprint to pack up our family of six on a dime and travel five hours to be there for her, I reflect on everything else vying for my attention: prepping for Thanksgiving meal and company, writing several reviews, getting packed for my 3-5 day stay for an EEG at OHSU, and preparing for Christmas and all it entails including company and babysitting pets. That plus the normal day to day business would be plenty to make one take deep breathes to ward off panic.
But now? Now let us add the needle that broke the camel’s back: WE ARE MOVING! Yes, you read that right. We just found out we are moving come January. So on top of everything, we will be packing the entire house and getting it ready to sell.
My response? I decided to join in the fun and insane NaBloPoMo challenge because it feels like a little bit of silliness which I desperately need right about now. So I will be posting and it may be deep and personal. It might be a photo. Perhaps I’ll vlog a bit. Or maybe share a YouTube video to make you smile. It might even be a messy post because the electrical storms in my brain make things a little messier at times. Like this week. So please forgive any typos and punctuation because I am pushing through to write anything coherent today. And that’s okay. I want to do it anyway, and make the best of this life that God has blessed me with even when it seems hard at times.
I will end Day Two here. Only 28 more days and posts to go…I look forward to seeing what pours out of me as i go through this month. I hope you patiently join me and see where my meandering mind takes us…
