When I first started my blog, I went through a phase during which I participated in several memes (blog games) and had a lot of fun doing it. Over the past year however, I just haven't had the time to devote to regular blogging and have done a lot of cheating (several times, I've caught up with a little of what's going on by backdating posts, so I still have some entries that show my son's antics because the purpose of Life in the Woods is to have a sort of diary for him).
Now that I find myself unemployed and husbandless for the moment (no divorce--see previous post), I'm feeling the need to find some memes again. A long time ago, I ran across haiku Friday and bookmarked it, but now that I have the time to play, it looks like there's not as many people participating. It still looks fun though! The English teacher in me loves the idea of writing in haiku form. :) For those of you that may not know, a haiku is a Japanese form of poetry that follows a 5-7-5 syllable pattern.

In a few weeks, chaos will return. I'm taking a few classes, I might find an online teaching job, who knows? I'll probably post regularly for a bit then flake out again. Oh, well. I've never claimed to be consistent. Have I? If I have, I lied.
