And a Happy Monday to you, too!

16 Jul

Sell childhood home? Check! Mother of all meltdowns from daughter?Check! Smash thumb in door? Check! Lose column-writing gig? Check!

Today, I found out my column is being cut from the Naperville Patch. So, this might be the last.

Any ideas on what I should publish on Mondays from now on? Parenting tips? Rants? Recipes? Funny things my son says, which would have to be heavily redacted?

    If it’s not one thing, it’s another. UGH! So sorry (those darn solar flares!)
    Mondays? Something done without brain in gear….how about shooting a pix of the sky/tree/ sink of dishes/ shoe you are wearing – in exactly the same spot at the same time each week….easy….no bother…should take up a lot of room…. Or dog or cat pix. those always get hits – ask for captions?…make snide remark or two about just about anything under pix. Many never look past image. Post done!
    But you’re far from done.
    Hang in there.

      If we don’t get rid of our terrible cat, I could take a picture of him! I like the picture idea. Will have to ruminate on that. Thanks!

    I’m sorry your column is being cut, that’s a bummer. But by all means use us as guinea pigs for whatever you feel like writing about!

      Consider yourself guinea’d. That’s so much nicer than being pigged.

    Monday certainly hit you hard today. Thats rough. I think you should write whatever you would have written for your column.

      Well, then I will likely write about how sexist I think the P&G “let’s thank moms for olympians” ads are, even while they make me cry.

    Janice,
    I’m very sorry. On the flip side, you can now dedicate your writing to Le Clown.

      I hadn’t considered that! I will also have more time to read Speaker 7’s recraps of the Fifty Shades books.

        Janice,
        She is such a great discovery… Speaker 7, that is, not that “porn”.

    This is further evidence that Monday should just be dropped from the week. Maybe you could start a post on Monday and your readers could finish it with their comments. And the Lego videos are impressive.

      I love those Lego videos! Hm…reader finished posts sounds good, too!

    So sorry about your column. Reader finished posts would be really fun to read!

      This would be an excellent use of the MOUNTAIN of fiction I’ve started . . .
