Mom Storm Tracker: Hourly Forecast

Written by Emily

When you like a blog or company on Facebook, a little box appears with suggestions of similar blogs or companies you might also like. When you like Girl, Always Interrupted, a box appears with the suggestion: ABC StormTracker.

Thank you, Facebook.

I wanted my box to show literary greats or women with rocking bods the likes of which no Victoria Secret model has ever seen or the website for creative genius. There had clearly been a mistake in an algorithm somewhere.

ABC StormTracker?

And then I returned from a weekend away.

I stepped into what was formerly my living room and was now, from the looks of it, a war zone of mangled toy parts, broken crayons and something that had been discarded after a thorough chewing. My kids and my husband had survived my absence, the house…just barely.

Three hours later, the screaming started.

Facebook, I was miffed by your comparison between my life and natural disasters, but …





Facebook, you are good.

    Love this one. Oh the memories it brings back. Now it’s different storms for different reasons. But some days I am waiting for a storm to pick me up and move me to a new locale where the teenagers do their chores with happy smiles and eat something besides junk food and soda and tell me how lucky they are that I’m their mom. Basically, I want to go to a place that doesn’t exist…..

      If you do ever get to that place, reserve a spot for me, so I can get there someday, too!
