If we were having coffee, we’d be curled up on the sofa,Tank sitting behind me, perched on top of the cushions with his head around my shoulders like a wee dragon. Little Jedi and his friend, who slept over last night, are in the middle of a Nerf war, so it might be wise to avoid the hallway where they’re readying for battle. We’d have to have our coffee chat early in the day, as we’re making a quick day-trip to a birthday party for Little Jedi’s cousin.
I would tell you that this week has been a better one than last week, and I’d thank you for being so understanding and helpful during last weeks’ whinging moments of utter honesty. Being so honest about the slump that I’ve been in seemed to help quite a bit—as did the fact that I am finally feeling better this week. I’ve gotten my allergies under control again, which is good as they were driving me bananas. Both Sam and Little Jedi have finally gotten rid of their coughs, so I haven’t had to worry as much about that. I even managed to take the pup for a half-hour walk (with Little Jedi in tow!) a few days this week, giving us some (much needed) shared exercise time. Little Jedi was feeling up to soccer this week, too, and I finally made my way around to the housework that I’d been neglecting.
I also managed to be pretty productive on the blogging front this week, and not just on the Monster. I kept up with A to Z posts here this week, and I had a lot of good conversations with you guys about witchcraft, gender, and culture. But A to Z posts weren’t the only things I published this week! I made a guest appearance for A to Z at Eclectic Alli to chat about cruising the Mississippi River on the Creole Queen. (Pssst!! I’ll also be there on Monday with a post about the Unusual Collections Museum in Abita Springs!) I also guested at HastyWords this week, sharing some thoughts about the word “real” for her Be Real series. And on Thursday I finished up an interview with Natacha Guyot, which will appear on her blog this coming week. (Psssttt…Special thanks to all you wonderful people who have hosted my writing!)
I would also tell you, if we were having coffee, that I was incredibly sad to see 2016 take another music legend. Prince was one of the most groundbreaking, sexy, capricious musicians ever. He was beautiful and terrible. And that’s not hyperbole. Honestly, I’m going to need this year to stop killing off pop culture icons. Please and thank you.
And, oof, that Nerf dart to the gut reminds me that I have kiddos in the house, and we have an adventure still to take this afternoon. Time for me to get off this big purple couch and hop to it!
