31 Days 2013!
Some of you might be shaking your heads in wonderment as to what "31 Days" is... I mean, we all know that 31 days is 31 days, but what does it mean when that pesky 'D' is capitalized? It means you have a wealth of information at your fingertips. Organization, cooking, artistry, faith, a better booty - it is all found somewhere in the link ups.
I pondered a while as whether I should join up and find some topic that would thrill and entice you, the reader. Then I had to escort my son back to bed for the 31st time, while threatening to call Santa. (The kid does not sleep! Did you know there is a thing called Delayed Sleep Syndrome? I do now!) And then I got tired just thinking about coming up with something pithy and new.
Instead, I thought really there are about three people who read my blog and they don't really read other ones. I'm pretty sure they think I'm a little nutty for a. having one and b. reading other ones. But WAIT! Here's the opportunity to show you, my loyal three, what is out there on the interest. Stuff from real people, possibly without pinterest inspiration pictures, that is really, really good writing and good information to boot.
31 Days of looking at blogs doing 31 Days of posting... on a topic. Could be anything! Think of the treasure trove of information waiting at your fingertips.
For example, 31 Days: Life Hacks for Mediocre Moms. First of all, with a title like that, how could you not click through? I'm a Mediocre Mom. At least in my head I am and I'm guessing that most moms feel like that at times. Especially when the whining reaches it crescendo and you wish Calgon really did take you away. At those times, we all could use a helping hand or crazy idea to hold the chaos at bay for another few minutes.
The second reason you should check out this site: This mom is FUNNY! Don't be drinking a soda while reading funny. Apparently, her furniture gets named at adoption. She may or may not own a pair of "Hammer pants". And she says no to "jeggings", which I'm pretty sure rank higher that culottes in the fashion faux pas category. That, my friends, is a true mom. I can't wait to see what hack is up tomorrow. I'm really hoping it's some way to instantly make a child fall asleep.
