This is Share the Love Sunday where I share the blogs I read and loved this week. This is the cranky edition for obvious reasons. I’ve been in a foul mood for no apparent reason other than I can be. I can’t even make any excuses because there aren’t any. I know…I’m so lame.
This Sunday ends my week of crankiness. I hope. I promise. Maybe.
I haven’t been able to paint or write well. Or concentrate. Or be polite, but I have been reading. I’ve been reading ALL THE BLOGS. At least all the good ones. Here’s a few that stood out for me:
Swearing Blogs (I’m addicted to the swearing this week. I can’t seem to help it. It’s nice when someone else is cranky for me.).
Sorry kid, your mom doesn’t play well with others, wrote a post this week with the title How Not to be an Asshole in Social Media with a lot of swearing and even some made-up-word-name-calling like “Bloghole.” It’s funny because it’s true and if we can’t laugh at ourselves who can we laugh at, right?
The B(itch) Log wrote Facebook Political Posters STFU in which she chastises people who only post political memes and only send emails during political seasons, but ignore you the rest of the time. She asks why they don’t care enough about her to send an occasional email asking how she is doing? It’s funny and full of swearing…She is cranky so we don’t have to be. I love it!
Nucking Futs Mama doesn’t really swear that much, but she does mention camel toe in her post Things I’ve Learned This Week. It’s pretty funny.
Stylish blogs (Sort of)
Banana Wheels sorted through her life long purse collection (there are photographs!) and wrote about it here in her post This is your life: Handbag edition. It’s funny and sweet and also all too familiar!
Stuff for the Kids
I’ve been looking for things to do inside because we have had rain, rain, rain. This is advanced for Miss Tiny-Small, but I’m keeping it on file for future use. Imagination Soup posted this exercise on art journaling that looks like fun: 4 Ways to Express Who You Are – Art Journal Activities for Kids and Adults.
A Mommy Story wrote about how her tweet went viral and how she responded in a kind and polite way to all of the responses she received in When Your Political Tweet Is Retweeted Astray. It’s long, but worth the read. She sets an example in this one!
Happy Reading. Let’s hope next week is better.
