A 2 Month Hiatus - And I'm Back....ish

Well, I highly doubt that anyone even looks for me anymore but I honestly do not care. I have gained some perspective in these two months. I realized that I may have begun to get wrapped up in something in the bloggy world that is not about why I ever started to blog in the first place. I started to think about fame, readers, sponsorships, stuff....I got a little caught up.

So, I took a break and got a little perspective.

For the record, I am not knocking anyone that wants to blog so they can make money or have tons of followers. You go! If that is what you want out of your blog, have at it. I just can't keep up with all that. And no, I am not suggesting that those in the aforementioned category are people who have nothing better to do. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings by explaining mine.

For me, this is simple. It's one working mom and wife from the suburbs of the D just talking about stupid stuff. I don't want to promote any products. I don't want any gift cards. And I couldn't give a rats ass if I ever make it into the newspaper or any other media. I just want to tell my stupid stories, if for no one else....for me. And to record my thoughts.

So in the last two months, you have missed that Bam-Bam now has an obsession with Michael Jackson. He got a guitar for his birthday and screams "OWWWWWW" like MJ while he plays it. And no, he does not realize that MJ does not play guitar.

You also missed the time that he said to me, "Mom, I'm concentrating." Where does he come up with this stuff.

He turned 3 and had an "Under the Sea" themed birthday party. We played the Glee music on the iPod and he played in his pool in the backyard all day long.

He has his first crush on a teacher at pre-school...oh, and he started pre-school. He loves this teacher so much that he has an imaginary friend at home with the same name and he says she is his girlfriend. I have to give her a kiss every night before bed. I also have to tell her goodnight.

Our air conditioning went out yesterday. It is supposed to be 90 degrees and humid all weekend. We went to Burger King for dinner so we could sit in the air conditioning.

Yep, my life rules.

So read me, or don't....but don't give me your God damn gift cards. I don't want them.


  1. Thanks, Maria...hope I did not offend with the whole God's name in vain thing. I am such a filthy mouth. I know He forgives me. :)

  2. I still look for you.

    I haven't written in months. I'm not sure why, I just haven't. I'm starting to get back to the point where I want to but I just don't know how to start up again.

    I'm glad you did.

  3. You write your stories, doll! I probably feel the same way you do about generating income or getting freebies from my blog ... I stay at home with my kids but I still don't have the time or energy to keep up with that world. More power to the people who do, I say!

    Love that you're back. The Michael Jackson bit is darling!

  4. Good to see you back. BamBam is adorable, and I love your stories about him.

    I have never done a review, never received any thing free that I didn't enter a contest to win, I'm never going to be famous for my little blog... I write, I take pictures, I hang out... you do what makes you happy.
