Politics and Idiots

After composing a beautifully-worded rant against the stupidity of humanity, I decided the world would benefit more from a picture of my baby boy.


This is from shortly after he began smiling socially -about two months ago, I believe. In all the chaos outside our walls, he is my motivation to stay well and my reminder to be happy with who and what we have in life.


And here’s my writings from the past week:

Wednesday, April 1: Thought about where things are going in “Let’s Make Some Order in This Chaos.”

Friday, April 3: Winner of the Weekly Terribly Poetry Contest. Congratulations to Writerinretrospect!

Saturday, April 4: Announced the next Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest. The theme is a senryu about a small, innocuous animal. PLEASE ENTER!

And, an update on Coronavirus and life happenings ’round these parts.

Sunday, April 5: “How to Wake a Teenager,” in response to Carrot Ranch’s prompt.

Monday, April 6: An inspirational quote by LA, of “Waking Up on the Wrong Side of 50.”

Tuesday, April 7: “Going Postal, IV.” Poor Ron.

Wednesday, April 8: Today.

I also posted on myΒ motherhood site. I probably ought to log in and check that sometime… Apparently, I wrote “This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things.”

    You need a break, Chelsea. Come on over to my virtual book launch. You don’t even have to get a babysitter!

        At my WordPress condo–just open up the new post. And pants are optional, unless you are thinking of going fresco, which would get you stopped at the door.

    How old will he be before he can actually say ‘Hot damn, moma,’ cos he looks like he’s thinking it. Love the little punch too

    He really is a gorgeous boy, Chelsea. I loved having babies. If I hadn’t had to work full time, I would have had another.

    Yes, baby photos bring joy. He’s a cutie. My boys are 22 and 19; no longer babies but big bundles of joy everyday.

    Nice baby. Definitely a better choice than starting a blog fire.
