Day two of the Alphabet posts. This is the perfect way to spend my time between waking up and the kids two-hour school delay. I feel edgy though, like I’m running late. And there’s the small matter of getting my car out from under the snow and ice. I think this day is going to feel weird.
F is for Feelings. I’m endlessly fascinated by how they direct our decisions. I’m trying so hard right now to really learn what that means for a writer’s craft. It’s a lot harder than it seems.
G is Go. I’d prefer a very sedate lifestyle. “Go” is such a simple word; I like how it can make big actions seem conquerable.
H is for Hunger. I swear I’m hungrier than most people, and I don’t just mean for food.
I is for Indiana. It’s not the worst place to live, but it’s also not the best. I’m not a huge fan of mediocre. Who is? That’s why we have the word “mediocre.” I won’t be sad to move again.
J is for Josh Mugele. Duh! How could I resist this?
Also, tonight and this weekend: Spelling words with Eleanor. I’m hoping over the weekend we can watch Spellbound and Akeelah and the Bee. Weird that I’ve seen neither? Maybe.
I’ve been having a hard time shutting up about the Spelling Bee with my coworkers. Thank you for coping with that, guys! Like I told them, this is my version of being an annoyingly proud soccer mom. Anyway, here are some cute videos that we’ve been passing around.
