In A Galaxy not so far away…

It is 9:30 am and I am just now falling into this chair in front of my computer. I have had an aching in both my mind and heart to begin to write about these ‘misadventures’ I call my life. The ego always gets the best of me and will furthermore be referred to as ‘the bully’. It plucks endlessly at my wounded confidence and rarely shows signs of exhaustion. Speaking of being tired…pffft forget it. I would only be accused of speaking in tongues…ppthhhhffffttt…now that’s tired.
Let’s review…it is now 10:35 in the morning. So far today I have delicately cut crusts from a PB & J sandwich (all the while ‘the bully’ screaming at me that if i really was a good mother I would serve dinosaur shaped sandwiches). I have managed to run out of purple vitamins. I saved a TonTon from the frigid winds of the ice planet Hoth (ahhhh but Mommies of young Jedi’s will all learn these very basic starwars survival techniques). I was forced to wash the kitchen floor after overactive terrible 2 year old dog tracked the wet back yard into the house while dragging a soaking wet, long lost, dug up from the depths of hell old squeaky toy (oh how ‘the bully’ loves to remind me that that is what I get for allowing my 3 year old son to name our new puppy Shoeshine) onto my prior ‘not so bad’ kitchen floor. I also included a slap happy tap dance this morning (no really) as I attempted to demonstrate that I, in fact am just as fun as dad…epic fail…or so I’ve been told. I have also been asked to define what community is: 1) A group of interacting people, living in some proximity (i.e., in space, time, or relationship). Community usually refers to a social unit larger than a household that shares common values and has social cohesion. The term can also refer to the national community or international community, and, my personal favorite 2) A community is a group or society, helping each other. Which leads me to…oh, excuse me for one moment…have to wipe up ‘gross sticky stuff’ from couch (how many times can you get away with simply flipping gross couch cushion, yea, that’ll be once. Only one flip!) Which leads me to this…and YOU…AND ONLY ONE ‘FLIP'(I am positive that I have over used that one). So this is me, reaching out (before I flip out!), like many of us do. I long to be a part of ‘interacting people…larger than (this) household…helping each other’. Wiki continues to define community as, ‘In human communities, intent, belief, resources, preferences, needs, risks, and a number of other conditions may be present and common, affecting the identity of the participants and their degree of cohesiveness’. Let me tell you something I know,  I know that I am in here. I know that YOU are out there. And I know the ‘risks’ that the ‘conditions’ can induce!  In conclusion, WE HAVE GOT TO STICK TOGETHER!  Let’s create a positive and nurturing, beautiful and loving space for not only our children, but for each other as well:) Let’s leave ‘the bully’ at the door shall we?  Because if I discover that I don’t have you, I may just take my TonTon and ride off into another dimension…and get some much needed sleep.
