Where's Josette? School Madness, Twittering, and Mamapop

Yeah, so, I was doing real good with posting once a week. That was fabulous, how good I was doing with that.

But then I wasn't.

Because April/May is hell. I mean, the good kind of hell.

A brief synopsis of April/May would include two weekend skating competitions that required lots of driving, hotels, and hand-holding a highly-combustible teen girl athlete, three orchestra concerts, a Girl Scout bridging ceremony, three field trips (one which included a 2 1/2 mile hike up the sheer face of a mountain), three class parties, three track and field days, a skating recital, a soccer tournament, and an exploding toilet.

The exploding toilet was unplanned, which made it all that much more fun.

And so it went on, 2000 feet high within a two-mile walk....

I also went to a Twitter party.

Which sounds really lame, but look at this:

That's a Fail Whale cake. So, you know, don't be a hater, Tater. It was awesome. I ate three of those cupcakes. One for breakfast. Which means I win Twitter.

Actually, it means I follow the dream nutritional plan of a Kindergartner.

Another thing keeping me busy and away from my blog is - ironically - writing.

I wrote something for the Patriot News.

That's a real newspaper. In print. Which means I can now officially call myself a Writer, since most people still think bloggers are like scrapbookers or first grade teachers: cute hobby, no talent or seriously hard work necessary. And to be honest, sure, there are some bloggers out there who use the Internet as nothing more than a public Post-it note or to publish their blank verse poetry, for crying out loud. Giving a bad name to those of us who treasure a well-placed semicolon or an artful sentence fragment.

And I was being sarcastic with the first grade teacher quip. You know...funny political. Since most people think being a teacher is so flippin' easy. Bygones.

Anyway, I've been writing other places, as well. Lookee here!

I wrote about The Great Gatsby trailer.  Which was awesome.

And I interviewed my eldest child about the Minecraft video/computer game:

13-Year-Old Reviews (OMG! Awesome!): Million-Selling ‘Minecraft’

Teenagers. No comment.

My middle child and I reviewed a few boy bands from around the world.

And then I got political again and wrote about breastfeeding, providing safe births for women around the world, playing sports while wearing a hijab, and prom dresses.

Also, a ton of other stuff.

So, so busy.

Being a writer.

And chasing my kids

But I promise, I have't forgotten my blog.

Just my mind.

The view from crazy. Now with extra Croc!
