Writing Challenge #4: The Resolution - I #fail(ed) My Way

Posted Jan 04 2010 10:37am

Write of passage

This is part of a writing challenge at {W}rite-Of-Passage, a community of bloggers who are looking to get back to the writing part of blogging and brainchild of my friend, Mrs. Flinger.  Today’s challenge was to write about resolutions. Do you believe in them? Have you ever done them? Beliefs? Success? Goals?


Yes, I've made resolutions and, seeing as I'm old (okay, older than most mom-type bloggers, I know, DAMMIT!) there are quite a few that I have made/failed to achieve, consistently, like:

  • 1.  Lose weight - #fail
  • B.  Get out of debt - #fail(ed)
  • 3.  Get organized - #epicfail

You see where I'm going with this, right? 

[bows head in shame]

So, in lieu of a new bill, banning ALL resolution-making in the future (seriously, it could happen) I've come up with a theme song, inspired by Frank Sinatra, instead:

I Blogged It My Way

And now, it's a brand new year

And so I face, another 12 months of perpetual pms and a really bad complexion

[takes deep breath]

My friends, I'll say it clear

Being a mom-type blogger sucks, of this I'm certain

Laundry baskets are full, the dishwasher is STILL broken

And yes, I've blogged it ALL

I blogged it my way

Regrets, I've had a few

But then again, I probably blogged that, too

You're welcome

What, so would you, when raising 4 exemptions

Stuff just doesn't happen, it hits the fan, watch where you step

This IS my mantra

And more, much more than this

I blogged it my way

[clears throat]

Yes, there were times

I'm sure you knew

When I blogged more than I could chew


But through it all, when there was doubt

I sucked it up and blogged it out

I Facebooked it all and STILL stood tall AND blogged it my way

[sound of crickets chirping]

I've loved, I've laughed and cried

Twittered it too, no matter how confusing

And now, as tears subside

I find it all so amusing

To think I made this, too

And may I say, not in a shy way

"Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I'm still a dork, aaaaanyway"

[last verse, you're welcome!]

For what is a mom, what has she got?

If not for my blog, I'd lose my train of thought

To say the things I truly feel, keyword Gods be #damn(ed)

The record shows, even though my traffic numbers blow

I blogged it my way!


Yes, maybe we should ALL just blog it....aaaaanyway!

Other folks participating, today:

Write on!
