I am having technical difficulties today. I mean more than usual. I have to postpone my Examining The Creative Mind Series until later in the week.
It’s been a rough day so far, mostly because I woke up grumpy and thought it was Monday. I also have, “What’s up? Chicken Butt!” stuck in my head. I swear someone broke into my house while we were sleeping and used every dish we own and then left it on the counter. Did I mention I also managed to dye the roots of my hair blond while the rest of my hair is still dark brown?
I have a stack of bills and packages to mail, but I can’t leave the house until I finish washing my hat (and drying it) because, well, did I mention my hair is ombre, but not in the good pink fades to blue Pinterest way, but more in the I am a blind, old lady, do it yourself kind of way? Yeah. I’m also supposed to take Tiny-Small to the park to mingle with normal children. Children with parents who have clean dishes and moms with hair that sort of matches their eyebrows. Good grief, if only I could wake up and start this day again.
I’ve been fighting with my blog for a while now. It’s winning. My pictures are too big so I have been trying to go through each post and resize the photos. I’ve also been trying to make this blog look more professional which really means more gadgets and weird writing done by me on the spur of the moment. I have another blog. An art blog that I have only posted twice on. I can’t decide if I should keep it or let it go. I have an art Facebook page too. Do I keep it? Do I let it go? Do I let this blog go and focus on the art. Do I just start over and get a new blog, a new website? One where everything I do is under one roof with my name as the title? I’ve been reading all of these things…SO MANY THINGS! This whole blogging, internet business stuff is like a marathon. I am running in a race with no arrows pointing me in the right direction. I might not be running in the direction of the finish line. I don’t know what I am doing anymore. I have been at this crossroads staring up and down each road, afraid to make a move. I’m blog-paralyzed. I’m Internet stunned. I’m like a rat caught in a maze (or guinea pig). I’m like a mom, who paints, with too many things to do, who still wants to have a website that is awesome and amazing and not boring like this post.
Anyway, the only reason I am even posting today is to tell you I am guest posting over at Equis Place where Xiomara writes beautiful blog posts. She’s such a gifted writer. I felt really honored when she invited me to guest post on her blog. My Post is Am I A Work At Home Mom? where I am sort of ranting about identity and why we have to label ourselves. Go check it out! If you have a blog you might join her new link up and check out some of the other bloggers sharing their posts. Xiomara turned my photos into Polaroid pictures. Talk about old fashioned. She probably wasn’t even born yet when those cameras were popular. I have reached an age where what was once old is new again. Sigh…I am just going to go hide under a blanket and watch bad TV with my blond roots and figure out what to do next.
Hopefully, I’ll start to conquer some of these technical difficulties. If not, be prepared to hear about it. You can call me a crybaby. I’ll own that.
For those of you who want to see my hair (I can’t believe I am doing this) you can check out my album on Facebook That Day I Dyed My Roots Blond. So, my hair is still wet in the pictures and it looks much worse in person. I just can’t get my arms far enough away from my head to give you the big picture.
