Here is My Post

    I sat down last night ready to write this beautifully eloquent post.   Maybe something about motherhood, maybe something about life, something I could link up with Shell's Pour Your Heart Out.
    The ideas, even some sentences even had popped into my head throughout the day, but as with everything since having three kids, if I don't write it down, I lose it.
   That's okay, it could come back to me, after all I am a writer.   I sat in my favorite seat on the couch, pulled open my computer and sat.

   It was quiet...

   Too quiet.  The kids all in bed, Eric out of town for work.

A little Property Brothers would do the trick, turned on the TV and once again pulled open my computer.


I closed my computer and decided just to watch the episode, then I would write.

I pulled out one of the blankets and wrapped up, nothing better then watching TV all wrapped up snugly in a blanket.

A hour later I woke up, haven fallen asleep at 8:50.

The sleepiness wouldn't leave my eyes; decided I might as well call it a night.

So here is my post, my profound post about motherhood, this amazing writing with this nugget of inspiration and wisdom that will leave you all amazed and in awe....

Or really it's not.  Instead it is much more true to real life, often repetitive and mundane, often a rather straight forward ride.

But those little moments, those moments of inspiration, those events that enliven you and help you remember what it is all about... those are the moments that make it exciting and worth it.

So for now, I will just calmly float and try to enjoy the calm.  I will write this simple post that really is more indicative of real life.

Maybe tomorrow I will write something brilliant.


  1. Oh, I so relate! Sometimes I have an idea and it flutters right out of my head when I finally have time to write.

    1. Yes! I usually am pretty good about writing down just even a few words right in the moment or I know I will lose it, but I did not

  2. I feel this way frequently (minus the quiet and falling asleep at 8:50 - my house is a whirlwind of chaos until 9:30 pm every day. ha.) I have little snippets that I think are amazing and inspirational. But when I finally get a chance to sit and write, all I can think about at 62 reasons dishes are the worst chore ever and how my car looks like every other mom's car.

  3. it's the times when I'm not sitting down when the thoughts come to my head - when I'm looking at the computer I draw a blank - so like you I have to write my thoughts down as soon as I think of them or they will vanish and quick as they came.

  4. I have moments where I think I have this great idea I will write it, and then I get distracted by life and there it goes.

  5. Since being a mom to two, all I have to do is walk to another room sometimes and I have to think, to remember what I came in for. Totally, can relate!

  6. This is all so true and comforting to know that I'm not alone in feeling this way. I feel like sometimes, I'm just tapped out - mentally, emotionally, everything. That's just the reality so I take time to do nothing. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  7. I love it! I've had days like this but usually I'm trying to write papers for school!
