Blog Every Day in May Challenge- Day 22
Today’s writing prompt is to get on my soap box and rant about something.
Well, I’m just not feeling up to it. Sorry folks. I sort of did that on day 20 (My True Views) though. Not sure how that happened! Maybe I shouldn’t be writing at one in the morning!
I was feeling too happy yesterday; I had an evening out without kids. Yep, just me. Alone! Well until I got downtown and finally got to meet some local bloggers in the Santa Cruz Community Media Lab!
When I got there, all dressed up in a cute flowing skirt, I got out of my car and the strong wind blew it up right over my head! Gave two guys crossing the street right near me a good show! I just laughed, what else could I do?! Another reason I don’t dress up often, I always end up embarrassing myself somehow.
But, the rest of the evening was fabulous! We had great conversation; adult conversation! And it’s the first time I’ve met anyone I only knew online, so it was strange how I felt so comfortable, like I already knew them!
It was so fun to talk to others, in person, who understand my passion for blogging and all the little details that usually produce that glaze-eyed look when I try to talk to my husband about them.
I had planned to write last night after getting home, but I watched the news about the damage of the tornado in Oklahoma and suddenly I was too sad. It made me cry! I needed to go climb in bed and cuddle someone.
I can’t even imagine losing a child, as too many did, let alone losing your home. There are ways we can all help:
If I suddenly feel inspired to rant and rave, which I’m sure will happen sometime in the near future, I’ll update this post. Or maybe just write a new one.
For now, hug your kids tight and appreciate every moment.
