I have four blogs (here, here, here and here) that I love to read. I was wondering what I like so much about them. I realized that each of the bloggers writes about everyday life. It's no wonder that I prefer those blogs because biographies are my favorite books to read. Their blogs are like unfolding biographies, one chapter at a time - with no end. The best sort of biography! I feel sad when one of my bloggers quits blogging or takes a break. I feel like I am missing a friend.
Then I wondered how their kids will feel to have their lives written about to the world wide web. This is the real reason I haven't been blogging the past couple of years. Princess is older now and is a very private person. I feel like I'm violating her privacy when I write about her. After all, she and the King are my life. They are what I do, who I serve and who I enjoy. However, by not blogging, I am allowing the precious mundane days to pass without documentation. Which is sad really, because I am so forgetful.
So, I again stand here on the precipice of blogdom. Do I document our daily life or just let it pass unheralded and unwritten. Something to ponder. For now, I think I will write.
I was asked to be a volunteer kindergarten evaluator (spelling: -er or -or?) at my daughter's school. Since I can't spell evaluater/evaluator, perhaps I should just resign now. I went to the training this morning with some trepidation. I did not want to be responsible for some precious future Nobel Prize winner to be labeled "unfit for kindergarten". What if I made a mistake on the evaluation? What if I blanked out and couldn't remember the alphabet? (You know you sometimes sing it to yourself, too.) What if I had a child that ran around the room like a banshee and couldn't do my evaluation?
Oh, the worry. It's my spiritual gift.
But. But. Then I went to the evaluation training this morning. Whew. It's all standardized. The whole evaluation. They even spell out exactly what you are supposed to say and you must (MUST) phrase your questions exactly as they are presented on the evaluation. No ad libbing. They even give you the answers that the children should give and how to score every possible answer. It's really well organized and straight forward. So, even though I went in with great trepidation, I am excited to do the evaluations and I really look forward to it. The wee ones are so cute and their answers will be so darling.
It has been so cold here which is very unseasonal weather. Yes, I know it is December, but in Texas you can have 80 degree weather. The lows are in the 30s all week with highs in the 40s. Very chilly indeed.
