Remember back in the day when you would sometimes turn to a TV channel and instead of a program there would be a message “Experiencing Technical Difficulties, please stand by.”
What if you clicked on a favorite blog and there was a message that said, “Experiencing Emotional Difficulties, please stand by.”
Just saying. . .
Don’t worry, I’m fine. I just mean that there has been a longer pause on my blog than I intended because I was a bit stressed. It seems I can write when I am happy, or when I am sad, I can even write when I am mad. BUT when I am the emotional equivilent of a shaken soda, I can’t think clearly let alone write.
The fact that I am writing this now is an indicator that I am feeling better, so no worries. Why was I so stressed? Suffice it to say, on top of a stressful job that keeps me up at night, literally, and almost a half dozen children, we moved. . .need I say more?

All this makes me think, what if we all had signs, I mean not just on the blog, but on a t-shirt or a name tag? You know, for those bad days? Something along the lines of “Danger, do not approach” or “PMS: Enough said”, “Bottled TNT” or “Emotional level: Nuclear Alert”.
If we had signs like this then on a “Nuclear Alert” sort of day, some unsuspecting store clerk won’t ask, “how are you?” and get blasted with an honest answer. Or an oblivious husband won’t ask, “what are you planning to do today?” and be nuked by his wife for his trouble. If I were wearing a “Bottled TNT” sign, my children would have fair warning that they better get their chores done, or find shelter. In short, the world would be a better place.
Maybe simply a sign that says, “Emotional difficulties: Please stand by.”
