I haven't been writing much because I've been stuck for topics.  A lot of times, it seems that every day is the same, even though I know that's not true.  To help me start to write again - not just post pictures - every now and then, I'll be visiting the site oneword.com.  Oneword.com gives you a single word, and then times you for 60 seconds while you type; after the 60 seconds is up, you're done.  I figure I can do anything for 60 seconds, and so I'll post my 60 second paragraph, and then expand on it a bit.  Maybe this will get me back in the habit of writing!

Overhead?  What a strange word to have to write on.  The first thing I think of, of course, is the overhead compartment on an airplane, and how much I hate using it.  I don't like trying to get a heavy bag up to it and then back down, and I really don't like not being able to get anything out of my bag during the flight if it's up there! (60 seconds is up!)

Overhead also makes me think of "in over my head," which is a thought that comes up sometimes in regards to parenting.  It seems like things are great until Jamie is out of reach - out of town, or outside doing yard work - and then everything breaks down.  Gisèle has to have help wiping up after going poo-poo while Miles is crying because he wants his bottle, and then I hit my head on the doorjamb as he spits up and she says - "Mama, more poo-poo!"

Good thing there's so many good parenting moments to make up for the trying times!
