After reading yesterday’s post on this blog, Juan made the comment that I am the Jerry Seinfeld of blogging. I asked him to explain, and he said that Seinfeld was an amusing show about nothing. He thought my post about Silly String was like that.
Well, I guess Juan is somewhat correct. But, it is my blog so I can write whatever comes to mind, even if it’s something as silly as Silly String. I read quite a few blogs and many of them are about nothing profound, just the stuff that makes up life. One of the blogs which I enjoy reading is Pioneer Woman, by Ree Drummund. Ree is an amazing blogger. If you haven’t heard of her then you should check her blog out. It will make you feel like you are an under-achiever. Some days her posts are quite touching, like when she writes about her developmentally disabled brother Mike. Other days her posts are just about as innocuous as Silly String. I am new to this blogging thing, but writing about the stuff that makes up my well blended life, is kind of the point of my blog.
Last night, Juan and I tricked Diego and told him we were going to visit grandma, but instead we treated him to the Mickey’s Halloween party at Disneyland. Diego is all ours. By that I mean because we have a “blended family” Juan and I share Olivia and Erica with their mom, and we share Nico with his dad. Many times the other kids get to do things with the other parents that Diego doesn’t get to do. Juan and I occasionally try to do something special with Diego on our own. It’s difficult because when it’s just the three of us, the house is quieter and it’s tempting to just stay home and chill. But last night we made the effort, and I’m glad we did. There were no crowds or lines. Disneyland was decorated for Halloween, entire families were dressed in costume…Peter Pan and company, Incredible families, grown men dressed as Star Wars heroes accompanied by a Princess Leah wife and Yoda babies. We had a great time. In case you think Juan is not supportive of me and my blog, Juan took pictures for my blog all night. I told him I wasn’t sure what I’d write about and then he said, “Are you kidding? This night is full of good material. You could write about Silly String, but not this?” I told him to get his own blog! Still, he was right. It was a night of good material. I am just not sure I want to write about it. So, instead I’ll post his pictures and close this post with photos from an evening that was special, even though it may not have been profound.
By the way, if you would like me to write about something in particular on this blog, leave a comment and let me know.
