Mission Statement

We are a people who tell stories in one form or another.
After all isn't blogging just another way to gather around and tell those stories?

Motherhood is Painless is about finding the humor in the every day. In finding the happiness in those stories that we tell. What would happen if we *all* learned to laugh at ourselves? Maybe then the dark corners would recede a bit and we would all rejoice at the love we find there.

Starting Over Again

Since the summer this is my third Chromebook. The first was a bit old, and the power connection went out...then the replacement was older. I'd stopped using that one, so it wasn't awesome.

This current iteration is one that D got as a freebie when he signed up for something. I'm trying it out for now, to see how I like the keyboard. Honestly, it's a little tappity-tap sounding but it will do.

We've been cleaning all weekend. Outwardly, it was because we were having the family over for B's birthday, but really it was a long, long time in coming. Things had gotten neglected, and grotty.

So everyone dug in and did their part, and the end result is a little less awful, and pretty darned awesome in a lot of places. The kitchen still needs a lot of purging, and we have a lot of stuff put aside in our room, but it feels really good. As if getting rid of the garbage let in metaphoric light as well as actual light.
