Everyday life is interesting; more interesting than we give it credit for. Life can also be stupid and silly.
For me, oftentimes I find myself focusing on the silliness and/or stupidity of things that most people overlook. I haven’t fully decided if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I also have an overwhelmingly warped sense of humor. I witness things, think about them, think about them some more, and around my third think they are funny…at least to me.
So within the confines of this blog I throw my observations and musings of the banal into the meat-grinder that is my sense of humor, and the literary-sausage that emerges is hopefully funny and not too wordy.
Things I might write about, in no particular order, with no particular frequency or guarantee of recurrence:
-I’m a mom….of 2 young kids.
-I work. That’s right, I’m a working mom.
-I like to cook & eat.
-I enjoy beer.
-My attic is a mess.
-I need to lose weight/exercise more.
-I have an almost unhealthy interest in personal finance.
-I like to garden, albeit in a half-ass manner.
-I can fix stuff around the house, and often do.
Anything I haven’t listed is also a possibility. As of this writing I’ve either forgotten about it or it hasn’t happened yet.
One thing that I can promise is that I will try my hardest to “keep it banal.” I will do my best to avoid anything super serious, political, religious, celebrity-based, or anything that’s national news. I don’t care much for inciting rage on any side of any issue, even if I do feel strongly in my personal beliefs. More importantly, I feel that major or inflammatory topics go against the spirit of this blog. Big answers to big questions will not be answered here.
What others might find banal, I will likely find interesting, and hopefully you will find funny.
