Just a Bit of Schmutz
I keep writing blogs saying “I’m back!”…and then I stall.
Partly because I get busy with projects at home and when I do sit down, my brain feels like that bit of schmutz your Mother used to clean off your face when you were a child. (Oh what I wouldn’t give for a ‘spit-shine’!) And partly because I feel like I’ve lost my writing mojo.
I’ve had plenty of opportunities to write funny stories. I’ve even taken pictures with the intention of using them for a story…and then, something else comes up and when I finally get to it, I have brain schmutz again.
I tell you what…
I’m not going to promise that I’m back.
I’m not going to tell myself – or you – that I’ll write a post every day.
I’ll just write when I feel I can…
Whenever the schmutz clears.
Have a good week everyone!
ps…that cute little schmutz-faced kid in the picture is my youngest, Gabi, who turns 14 on Tuesday! Happy early Birthday sweetie! I love you!
pps…in case you’re not familiar with the term, ‘schmutz’…it’s a spot of dirt, leftover ketchup, chocolate, or whatever you’ve eaten that’s left on your face when you’re done eating. And a ‘spit-shine’ is when your Mom would spit on a napkin or her thumb and wipe the ‘schmutz’ off your face. Of course this is done when there’s nowhere to get water. But trust me…nothing is as sanitary as Mom spit. My three girls can attest to the spit-shine method. They loved it! (I foresee some major eye rolling when they read this.)
