Okay, this is a new blog written by an old gal wearing raunchy PJ’s. On a side note, I don’t normally wear raunchy PJs. I don’t go to stores in my PJs. This is serious.
Today, I wanted to create a place where I could get “real”. A place without barriers or worries of what someone might think. I’ve been down an interesting road and am realizing that even though somedays I can move between the role of a big sister, a mom, a wife, a teacher, a counselor, a student or a listener, I’m really all wrapped up in this person that someone can connect with.
Why start now? I’m sick. No, I’m not dying (well, I don’t think so, at least) but I sat here with congestion in my chest and hot tea by my side thinking, “okay… this week I went to a funeral, had a dental procedure done, started my period a week earlier than necessary and got a virus”… that’s funny. No, really. There’s great humor in the ups and downs of life, you just have to let it feel like an open mic night and embrace the chuckles.
So that’s it. Here we go. I’ve done the “Momma Logues” with quips of my child’s humor intertwined with my own one-liners (http://www.iloveyoudisgusting.com/) but this year it’s about me. Not in a super self-focused way, in a way that says… “you ain’t alone, girlfriend… we’re all in this together”.
Oh, yeah… and I’m eating a really large bowl of onions with curry on them, covered in Siracha.
This is a “home remedy” for chest colds. I read this online. http://voices.yahoo.com/all-natural-remedies-chest-congestion-onions-712099.html?cat=68. Everything online is true. Everything. And if it’s not, I will just enjoy smelling like an Indian dish for the next 36 hours.
