I tired to go to sleep. Restless. Boys are sleeping. I’m blogging. So, it’s decided then. I’m going to take the WordPress postaday2011 challenge because I want to shake things up here at Mama C. I want to write more, and have the blog help me shift, as well as help shifts happen.
Post a day simply means that I am going to post on this blog every day this year. In an effort to give that challenge some meaning and purpose I have let rise to the surface the following structure:
Marcel Monday: all things Marcel. His words whenever possible. His pics. His growth. An opportunity for a sweet year of Marcel’s musings and movements. Family might be more inclined to check in with the blog on Marcel Mondays and Sammy Saturdays.
Trouble on Tuesday: In an effort to record a little more introspection, and create a little more dialogue with the outside world, I hope to use this day to dump. Dump my worries and my struggles. Seek help, or just let it go. I imagine it being a place for my minute and worldly troubles to air. Those with enough troubles of their own feel free to skip this day, or add your own!
Working it Wednesday: In the best of all possible worlds, this will be a chronicle of what I’m doing to remedy the trouble from the day before…or maybe just a place to share something a member of the Mama C collective is working on.
Thankful Thursday: Gratitude. I want to have more of it, share that which I do, and hopefully offer some ideas along the way for noticing it in your life too.
Freedom Friday: A day devoted to freedom. I have no idea if that is about form or function. It just felt freeing in and of itself.
Sammy Saturday: It won’t be long before he demands a blog of his own. For now, we’ll see if we can hold him to a day. Like his brother, the idea of a weekly post devoted to his words, bumps, leaps and shouts. Tonight he was composing love songs into his new six second record and play back device Aunt Jenn sent. Since it is Saturday I’ll share it; “I’m pouting in the rain. Uhhh huh. You are my rain!”
Sing it on Sunday: A day to acknowledge that which seems worthy of praise. Links. Accomplishments. Ah has. Sunsets. Those mango bars from Trader Jo’s.
I just wished myself a Happy New Year, and toasted my computer with a clink of my orange juice in one of the only glasses we have not broken in 2010. We’re off to a marvelous start!
PS. To the one reader I have that almost always writes me an email after every post to tell me how much you loved it-you are completely off the hook from doing that in 2011!
