I’m supposed to have a blog post a few times a week, but lately all I can think about writing is how nobody is even going to read this. Then things start turning into a “poor me” type of deal where I whine about how nobody is reading the website. I don’t want to be that kind of guy, so I let those posts slip by.
Then over the last few weeks, I’ve applied to become a Crossing Guard which would allow me the time to continue working on the website, a well as volunteer in my son’s classroom occasionally. It’s a long process that really isn’t as exciting as you might think. Although at the orientation there was coffee and donuts!
I wanted to start blogging about how August is going into Kindergarten next week. There’s a lot of anxiety around that and excitement around that. Déla will be one of the “big kids” at the pre-school with her brother gone over the coming year, so you would think that there was some great fodder around that.
August is also in the process of losing his first tooth. I could have a couple of posts about how this has been going – such as how long it is taking, how I am creeped out by a wiggly tooth, and even some of the arguments my wife and I have gotten into. Yes, arguments, over a lose tooth. Apparently I am trying to set a land speed record for being lame.
The truth is, however, that I’m discouraged by the lack of comments on any of my blog posts, and I wonder if anybody is actually reading. So, yes, this did turn into one of “those posts” where I whine about how nobody is reading – but I take solace in that I won’t be boring many people.
No, don’t post a comment here because now you feel obligated. That’s not the point. I just needed a moment to complain. My apologies.
