My mom visited for the week. And I survived. Somehow.

It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Except for a few critical comments in the beginning of the week, she was pretty nice and compliant. But then again, I was sick with a migraine on and off during the week so that sucked.

Last week was a tough week workwise. It was busy. The work was challenging, and I enjoyed it. Too bad the company I’m on loan for isn’t hiring at my pay level in my city. And there’s no way I’m taking a pay cut and moving. But editing social media is getting VERY old. I work in pharma! This is supposed to be challenging work, doggone it!

Son’s behavior is still tough. He’s asserting his independence, pushing the boundaries, and seeing how far he can take it. And he’s taking it so far that he’s driving me and my husband nuts. I had a short fuse with him this week but I need to work on being more patient with him. He’s learning. A LOT. And I need to recognize that and be cognizant of it.

The last few days have been a bear. I had a migraine for 3 consecutive days with nausea on and off. Ginger ale has been my BFF. I’ve purposely eaten terribly so i could throw up but that hasn’t happened yet. The nausea is still pretty bad tho.

Speaking of BFFs, I was supposed to meet with a friend on Friday and enjoy a day of pub hopping in Philly. I had this planned for MONTHS. Now I’m stuck in bed writing a blog post, dealing with a migraine, and fighting off nausea. Luckily i have my bucket nearby. All is well to catch any upchuck.

my mom will be visiting for the next week. If I survive, I will tell you all about my harrowing experience.

the eccentric and erratic editor

my life needs editing. —mort sahl

welcome to the blog of the eccentric editor. i’m your host, K, an editor who’s eccentric and erratic. why those things other than the fact that they’re alliterative with editor?

  • i am an odd duck. you’ll discover how and why as this blog progresses.
  • my posts will be all over the place. myriad, i think, is what they call it. consistent topics on certain days but i don’t have a real niche in mind for this blog.
  • i’m an editor by day and eccentric by night. only erratic in blogging.

i’m taking an e.e. cummings approach with my blog. lowercase letters (except for proper nouns). because it’s hip. and Millennial. and all the things. i think.

you’ll also discover that i’m not hip and that i hate being a Millennial.

welcome to my blog. i like GIFs, memes, music, and other stupid internet stuff. i might wax intellectual occasionally when it suits me. here’s the proposed outline for this blog as it develops:

  • struggle sunday: problem of the week
  • myriad monday: myriad topic of the week
  • tuesday inspiration: inspiration of the week
  • word (to yo’ momma) wednesday: word of the week
  • thursday tunes: song of the week
  • friday feelings: emotions of the week
  • soapbox saturday: rant of the week

i don’t plan on publishing all of this right out of the gate but i’m hoping that i’ll at least be able to post tuesday, wednesday, and thursday—three times a week. let’s make this as easy and simple as possible.

and try to avoid using caps. (autocorrect probably won’t let me, though.)
