Can you believe it’s the end of the year already? I just got used to writing “2013″ on things! (Kidding.) (Sort of.)
But since I’m not a Time Lord (damn it anyway), I have to acknowledge that it’s the end of 2013. What have you done this past year? Anything you’re proud of? Anything you’re not proud of and would rather forget? (Can you tell me what that thing was, because I like knowing these things?)
For me, my year was generally
low-key boring. But maybe that’s because I can’t really remember what I did this year (darn that mommy brain). Here’s a recap of the major events:
…and Happy Festivus to the rest of us!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock without WiFi, you’ll know that it’s Christmas Eve. That day of horrible, horrible last-minute shopping and the start of ALL THE EATING. (I never want to step on a scale until about February. You know how it goes.)
Anyway. Around this time of year, every year, there’s some sort of controversy between the “Merry Christmas” and the “Happy Holidays/Season’s Greetings/everything else you could say” people (or maybe it’s just the people I know/places I visit).
Am I the only one who keeps hearing “Jesus is the reason for the season!”? (Yes, that has TWO punctuation marks.)
So sometimes I might geek out about something. Usually it’s about Star Trek. Or something science fictiony, anyway (because that’s what I do :P). But every now and again I’ll geek out about something that seems like it’s out in left field somewhere.
Like cloth diapers. No, for real. I have a collection, you guys.
Wait, wait. Let me back up. Yes, I cloth diapered my two older kids. Yes, I might be crazy for doing so. Yes, there’s a reason why I’m talking about cloth diapers now.
In case you’re wondering why the hell I’ve decided to use a Christmas design for my blog, the answer is this: I like Christmas.
Kidding. Well, I do like Christmas, but that’s not why I’m using this particular theme. See, I’ve decided to try something new with my blog, and with the whole “new” thing I wanted to use a new (to me) theme/design. (It made sense in my head.)
I’m not changing my focus again — I’ve done that a few too many times and I’m pretty sure I’ve lost readers because of it. On the contrary, I’ve decided to try going back to why I started this blog in the first place — to talk about motherhood and the apocalypse, but with humor and sarcasm, of course (if you’ve stuck with me this far, you’ll know I don’t take many things seriously).
Okay, so most of you have probably already seen this, but it’s just so full of awesome I had to share.
“I want to come tooooooooo!”
Though, okay, I do wonder what happened to that poor frog. Does anyone know?
