Welcome back to another week of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. In case you haven’t caught on, I’m actually spending my 5 minutes a day or two in advance of this post going up. (I’ll eventually get to actually writing on Saturdays.) For now, though, we’re traveling so much that I don’t have time on Saturdays to straight up write, plus get the link-up ready, etc.
So, the rules….
1. Set a timer for five minutes. (Or keep tabs with your computer’s clock.)
2. Write freely. Any topic. Whatever is on your mind. It doesn’t even have to be completely cohesive.
3. Tag on social media with #SOCSaturday and link up below. You have all day Saturday and Sunday to join the link up. It closes Monday morning.
4. Click around and give some comment/blog love.
We’re heading home this weekend. After a full week away, we’ll be home at some point today. We’ve had a busy, busy week and I will be oh so happy to sleep in my own bed again. Also, the toddler has been requesting to go to church for the past couple of weeks and we haven’t been home. So we get to do that tomorrow.
As I write this, I’m technically still out of town. My husband is fighting with the blu ray player because a Redbox movie won’t play audio. I’m finding technology more and more maddening. Ironic since my degree is in computer science. And my life has revolved around technology.
I’ve been battling SO MANY spam comments on my blog. I don’t know why. I need to check out my Akismet plugin, because shouldn’t that junk be stopped? Hundreds this week, and my blog doesn’t receive a ton of traffic to deserve that kind of headache. Technology, yo.
I finished “Hands Free Mama.” I recommend this to any parent – not just moms. Any person, really. I’ll have to do a separate post on the book and what I’ve discovered about myself. I already see a difference in the relationship with my son when I just put my phone away. I love my phone. It also causes so many issues and unnecessary distractions.
I go back to work on Monday, having been out since July 3. I feel nervous. Last time I took a vacation and returned to work, I was laid off three days later. It’s an unnecessary nervousness, but nervousness nonetheless. I’ve been looking at emails here and there, and when I’ve replied, my colleagues have apologized for bothering me. Except they weren’t bothering me. They’re just that nice.
And that’s my five minutes. I hope you’ll link up below!
