Stream of consciousness Sunday – thank you Internet


Some days I turn to the Internet for inspiration and help getting myself unstuck. And some days the Internet delivers.

Today my brain is a tangled mess. I’m anxious and unsettled and all out of sorts. I couldn’t write a coherent post today if you paid me (Ok, maybe if you paid me. Do you want to pay me??).

So I start flipping through my Google reader, procrastinating looking for inspiration. And I come across this post by the awesome Jenn at So this is Love linking to this post at All Things Fadra. Stream of Consciousness Sunday. Perfect.

So here goes. Welcome to my stream.


I’m sitting on a bed in what used to be my brother’s room. I didn’t make the bed this morning. That feels weird. M usually makes the bed at home. Oh the things we rely on him to do. I’ll probably make the bed as soon as I’m done writing here. It’s already almost 4pm but never too late to make the bed.

I thought it would be sunny today but it’s not. That always makes me feel out of sorts. When the weather is not what I expected or wanted it to be. I would have taken Baby to the park if it had been sunnier out. But it’s one of those cloudy, fall days.

And then she got sick anyway. I’ve never seen her get so clingy and quiet. I couldn’t even go to the bathroom without toting her along. I have to admit, it felt nice to have her cling. I hate when she is sick. But I love that when she is sick she only wants to be close to me. It makes me feel so special to be the one who makes her comfortable. I really love being her mommy.

When she wakes up, I think we’ll make chocolate chip cookies. If she’s feeling better. She loves to bake. And my mother’s kitchen is so much bigger than ours is back at home. So we can really go nuts. She’ll have a blast.

I can hear her stirring in the room next to me. She’ll be up any second. Hope she is feeling better. I think a little baking therapy will help us all.

Five minutes are up! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

  1. I remember when the only time my child would want to cuddle was when she was sick (around 2 years old or so). Now at 4 she can’t seem to cuddle enough. I wish she would stay 4 forever! Hope you had fun baking.

  2. Oh, when the little one is sick and they need mommy, it is a special time and feeling, I remember it well. I do hope your little one woke up feeling much better and baking was fun! Glad your 5 minute stream worked for you, I enjoyed it!!

  3. I never had as many cuddles as when my youngest had croup – the rest of the time – just busy!
    Baking days … those are our favs!!!
    Hope she is on the mend!

  4. Yay stream of consciousness! Glad you found some inspiration- I use the internet all the time for that 🙂 And I hope your little one feels better soon. You can send the chocolate chip cookies my way, if she’s not up to eating them 😉

  5. I’m never a better mother than when my son is sick. It brings out the sympathetic nurse in me and I secretly love the clinginess too.

    Thanks for linking up!
