Just for fun

BOOM! Like the phoenix rising from the ashes—okay okay so not that cool.

Well, well, well….it’s true I have been on a very LONG blogging break. As this gorgeous fall season settles in on me and our bustling routines are underway, I was just sitting here wondering what I was up for “next”.  I have found that going with my “gut” always steers me in the right direction and I’ll be darned if it didn’t steer me right back to my little Cuppa Sunshine & Sugar!  I have to say that following your “gut” certainly keeps life interesting, and honestly, less stressful in the grand scheme of things. So that said, after much consideration of all of the “do’s” and “don’ts” and “tips” for blogging that I have spent countless hours devouring…I have come to the conclusion that my blog is just that “My Blog”! Ha! What a novel idea (insert *sarcasm*)…that I can just roll with it.  Without any rules or do’s or don’ts.  Just me.  What I want to put out there.  When I want to put it out there.  Just let it be an amazing little haven for creativity to share with my awesometastic readers.  The funny thing is, this is what it always should have been.  Ya know, before it turned into something else that I loved but wanted to retreat from.  If that makes any sense at all….?  So here I am.  Onward!

First course of business.  Truth Time!  While in the past I was maintaining a strict posting schedule routine and became a stats junkie…I believe this was an integral part of pushing me to take a break.  I guess it just took the fun and spontaneity out of it for me in a lot of ways. With the time commitment I was maintaining….I realized I had put too much pressure on myself and that was never the goal. SO!  Going forward I am just gonna post when I post and roll with it. ;) Second and final course of business today….I HAVE MISSED YOU—MY READERS!!!!!  I hope you all are well, filled with warm happy fuzzies and looking as dapper as ever!  I look forward to catching up with all of you and leave you with a FUNNY of course! Enjoy your day! ~Lisa

P.S.  In my honest opinion…just say no to selfie sticks.

If you want more average parent problems, I highly suggest you follow @averageparentproblems on Instagram. You can even submit photos of your own with the hashtag #averageparentproblems for the chance to get featured. Or post them on the Mommy Shorts Facebook page.

But if you consider yourself even slightly above average, this Instagram feed is probably not for you. You’d like @aboveaverageparentproblems where parents complain about their kale getting cold because they were in the middle of an exciting homeschool lesson… but I promise, that account does not exist. Yet.
