i'm not a writer

When things get hectic in my life, I don't sit down at the computer and write it out. I don't carve out "me time" to blog, or make notes about things to write about, or any of that.

If life is busy throwing lemons at me and my family, I'm busy catching them and squeezing the crap out of them, not here posting the lemonade recipe.

I wish I had that need to write, that feeling of knowing that if I just sit down at my computer and tap out my thoughts I will find a release, or a new perspective.

Doldrums seem to stifle me.

Don't be confused, I haven't been totally uninspired. My darlings at home make me laugh and feel joyful every day, and so that's where I put my focus. I love my moments with my little family, more than ever when the outside world is rainy and gray.

When the going gets tough, this tough guy here just hunkers down.

Tension steals my words.

So I'm not a writer, but I'm okay with that.

Foo Fighters Friday: post-concert edition!


oh, yes. we had really good seats.

Our seats gave us a straight-on view of everything, the fancy giant TVs and flashy stuff going on in the background, and the band. Then (as expected, this ain't my first rodeo) we had the Super Great View of the acoustic set that began the "encore". Which I still debate calling an encore, because I thought that meant it wasn't planned. I digress.

Sorry about the video quality, but rest assured, these are legal - the venue website said photography was allowed! :)

This concert was... epic. We had the most amazing time, partially because we knew our boy was in good hands, hanging out with his Auntie Ashley and Uncle Joel. And really... because how could we not?? My all-time, number-one, absolute favorite band!
