So, then, how did I find myself in mid-October. 2022, thinking about posting regularly to my blog again?
Socks for Social Distancing, Day 16
As a social distancing gift to everyone in the family trying very hard to convince ourselves we all love--or at least don't mind--the present situation, the Puddinette ordered us hammock this week, which arrived yesterday. I was initially dubious, but relented when I realized that with the onset of nicer weather, having a place for … Continue reading Socks for Social Distancing, Day 16
A Haiku About Missing Days And Not Freaking Out
Last week got away...
Day 9, The Smoldering of The Fates
After implying pretty directly on Monday that Important Thoughts Would Come Soon! (meaning the following day, aka yesterday), I was pretty much double dog daring The Universe, The Fates, Dr Doom, or whomever you prefer to blame to intercede and render my half-baked schemes asunder by spinning things all pear-shaped. And since insert your symbolic … Continue reading Day 9, The Smoldering of The Fates
A haiku for Days 8 and 9

Days 5, 6, and 7
I'll totally forgive you if you figured I'd given up already, considering I went all weekend without a so much as a peep.

Luckily, explaining my Day Four goal … Continue reading Day Four (is kinda about haiku)
A Haiku about Day Three
Facing my great foe The treadmill fell to my stride Day Three goal, achieved! Not pictured: aforementioned vanquished treadmill Actually Pictured: the socks worn to vanquish said treadmill
At the end of yesterday's post, I teased that today's goal would be one that was nearly a decade in the making. To be specific, it's actually been 9 years, 6 months, and 13 days, which is honestly a damned long time. I mean, I've got a kid that's only (roughly) three quarters of a … Continue reading Day Two
Somehow it's already 11 pm and I'm just now starting to write today's post. When I was doing the Daily Sock, I'll admit that happened all too often as well, but I had kind of hoped not to already be pushing the limits of what could be accomplished in a day on Day. Freakin'. One. … Continue reading Day One
