To many restful days in a cabin in Maine, where I’ll be blissfully free from the pressures of work, miles from the 120-degree Chambers Street subway platform, but not so far from civilization that I can’t get a good decaf latte and the Sunday Times.
I will not be blogging this week. Or, rather, I will do my best not to blog. Or read blogs. Or comment on blogs. Which I think is something like Tara Reid saying I will do my best not to get drunk and be photographed by the paparazzzi with my skirt hiked up into my underwear and mascara running down my face–but I can try.
In the meanwhile, I have a proposal. Those of you who would come here daily anyway? Come here still and I will try make it worth your while.
Each day, you can scroll down and find a different site to visit in lieu of mine. I promise not to disappoint. However I don’t want to tell you much about each one. The best advice I ever heard about fixing someone up on a blind date – don’t describe. Don’t overpromise. Don’t promise at all. Just let them discover. So that’s what I’ll do here.
These are posts that made me laugh, or made me think, or made me think I should be reading this blogger more. And hopefully they’re people you’re not all that familiar with yet.
Today I’d be thrilled if you started with my vote for August’s Perfect Post Awards, Bub and Pie’s Am I Bored. In fact, so many of her posts are perfect that it was hard to narrow it down to this one. But it was the one that spoke to me on a personal level, honestly answering the question whether motherhood is boring. And as always, you can find the other Perfect Post winners at Petroville and at Suburban Turmoil.
