What to Write?

My goal, as of now, is to blog about something every day.  But why do I feel like I’m short on topics?  This would surprise people who know me, because I never shut up.  Do I “mommy blog”?  That’s not me.  Yet, it is.  I’m a mom.  It’s what I do.  Hell, I’m bottle-feeding my youngest while typing this post with one hand while keeping an eye on my oldest, who insists on licking her arm for reasons unknown to me.  (Once a mom, always a mom…right, mum?)  May seem a bit careless, but these two are under my watch and they’re still here, so I must be doing something right.  Guess I should repeat that to myself every day, because most of the time, I feel like a lousy mother.  Well, I do.

This is my life now.  Has been for over 3 years.  Before this, I used to go out all the time.  Wouldn’t go anywhere before 9 because places were only starting to pick up around then.  Now, I’m lucky if I can stay up until the kids are in bed.   Do I miss that lifestyle?  Not really.  Every once in a while, I’ll “indulge” and go out with my friends.  We’ll have fun, but it’s just not the same.  That doesn’t mean I don’t want a Jack on the rocks, even at 10 in the morning.  (No.  I don’t do that.  I just have water on the rocks instead.)  The least I can say about that is I’ve had my experiences, so I’ll be on to these 2 little chickies when they get older and try to sneak one by me.  Thankfully, I still have some time before that happens.
