The Living Without Series

This is a series of posts that I wrote back in 2006 on living with less stuff. Check them out: liv011Living #2liv031liv04

Maybe a little butt cream would fix this blog.

Is there anybody out there that can HELP ME?!!!  Please?  I seem to be stuck in a big black blogging hole.  Hello?

I’m sorry.  Did I say that out loud?  I gotta tell ya, this place feels cold and dark.  Whenever I talk my voice echoes off the walls and scares me.

If only I could hold this blog and give it a spoinkectomy, then I would feel like the bonding has begun.

I called a web designer today and asked for a quote.  It was a very fair price, but I couldn’t help but wonder what my readers would think if I spent money on my blog?  You know I feel you all are watching me everytime I purchase something.  Sometimes I mutter, “Stop looking at me!” when I hand my money over to the cashier and then I take a few swats around my ears.  There are a lot of store clerks that hide when I come in the store.

I promise I haven’t bought anything except new clothes and there was some serious guilt going on in the dressing room.  I wasn’t able to pay full price on anything when I shopped by myself (it was a different story when I brought Clay with me).  I had conversations with the April looking back from the long mirror about the importance of practical clothing versus right-here-right-now trendy clothing.  I’m not sure which April left with the bag of clothing, but I think she did okay.  Who’s April?  What are we talking about?

I want to end this post with the prayer my son lifted up to God last night.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Please make my butt to stop hurting.
Please make my diarrhea to go away……Mom, stop laughing.
And please help Dad to get home quick with that butt cream stuff.
Amen.
