Welcome to my digital writing journal, or mydigitalclutter. What started as a family blog almost two years ago has morphed into my writing therapy. This is where I do a lot of free writing, mostly about my life with my family and the things that catch my interest. While nowhere even close to perfect, in each post I like to see how my writing is changing with time and practice. Most posts are left unedited for this reason, so if you don't mind, take the journey with me.

Today has been random. Random? Yes. I can't quite put my finger on why, but there it is. I feel like I have scurried to and from nowhere and everywhere. Much like the Hare in Alice in Wonderland, always rushing someplace, late, for a very important date, but having no idea exactly what that date is or where it is being held.

Here are some very random thoughts that I had today amidst all the scurrying:
  • When it rains it pours, except when you are in a freaking hurricane.
  • All that it takes to make your nine year old happy is to figure out how to plug in the karaoke microphone from High School Musical.
  • My children are growing up way too fast because they can take off on their bikes and leave me behind worrying.
  • Life isn't fair, and it really sucks when it gets shoved in your face.
  • Corn grows really fast in egg carton containers, and really slowly in the garden.
  • I'm the only one I can force to have a good day, good attitude, and good disposition, but even then it doesn't always work.
  • Complaining will get you nowhere, and it just disappoints everyone around you.
  • I need to be a better mother, friend, neighbor, daughter, etc.
  • If a picture is worth a thousand words, why do I love to write so darn much
So not interesting stuff. Just random. Like my day. What has your day been like?

That's so funny! I had a lot of random thoughts today too! Mostly when I am breastfeeding (well pumping) for hours . . .I have a lot of time to think. I talked to Carey recently, so I was thinking about them. Then I was thinking about a 5 cell embryo and how it becomes a child that has ears, fingers, nose and toes! Wow! I love your ramblings Teri!

I get how you feel, and I feel the same way often also! I am pretty sure I am an undiagnosed ADHD patient because I can never quite finish a job all the way through or remember what I was going to do in the first place! Thanks for letting me know I am not always alone in my randomness.

This is a great post. I like how concise your thoughts are! ;) And your kids leaving you behind as they bike away, what an image that draws in my mind....
