A Few Difficulties and some Good News

Well, it looks like I failed to get the mid-month reminder out for The Escapist Coloring Club again last month. And with Alex being his difficult self today, the prompt for September may be delayed until tomorrow. I did want you to know I haven’t forgotten, though.

August marked the end of the year for the SoCS badge–I plan to get the new contest up once Alex goes back to school …

I’m starting to see a pattern here. Who knew your life could revolve around your child rather than your blog? Haha. Anyway, please watch out for that.

And finally, I called the doctor’s office on Friday when I still hadn’t heard back about my MRI. Turns out no news was good news: everything looks normal.

Obviously they didn’t look too deeply. 😉

So, that’s it. Prompt later today or tomorrow, badge contest to come. Again, sorry for the delays.


#SoCS – Sofa, so good

Sitting on the couch, writing this and eating chips, it occurred to me that if I put a chip on the seat beside me, it would literally be a couch potato.

Couch–such a versatile word. As a verb it can mean how you phrase or word something … how you couch it.

The advice goes that if you want to write a book, you’ve got to get your butt in the chair.

But I sit on the couch to write.

Which means I can couch it “get your butt on the couch.”

Which is what I’m doing now: writing with my couch potatoes.

Sofa, so good.

I think it’s about time I couched myself in bed.
