So when you have a blog, and things are humming along perfectly in tune, the words are flowing, the ideas are stacking up, it's a symphony. And then you take a day off because maybe you're busy or tired, and then that one day turns into two, then three, then a week, and suddenly your unposted blog becomes its own entity.

It is there, in the back of your mind. You are aware that writers need to write, and so since you are clearly not writing, you are now not a writer.

The blog takes on a life of its own. It is lurking. Empty. Tormenting you. It is a living, breathing THING that knows that you are, obviously, NOT writing. Loser!

Then you notice that you are purposely NOT writing. You have nothing interesting to say (as if). You know no one cares of your daughter gets pigtails for the first time, and is SO pleased with herself she ACTUALLY POSES FOR PICTURES! Or that your son's favorite thing to do is, when you give him a kiss, he wipes it off because he is too BIG for kisses.

You understand that you are as boring as the piece of lint or your shirt.

You start feeling bad because you know you have people who actually check this blog. If there's never anything new, these people will go away. Your blog will die a slow death.

So you are recommitted! Re-energized! You won't play seven hours straight of Scramble, even though you were 17th out of 289 players last night!!


Thanks for all who have hung with me.

I'm back!

Yay! And frankly, I find shirt lint highly fascinating. I mean how does it get there? What's it's story? Does it have lint friends?

And how cute about the pigtails. That is totally a milestone worth sharing!!

Why do you think I have a review blog? Gives me stuff to write about all the time!

Other than the great gossip that I extract from friends and neighbors daily, which does not count as excitement in my own life, I've got nothing interesting going on. Same old, same old.

Maybe I like it that way. ;)

Woohoo! Welcome Back! Could you just copy your post and paste it to my crafty blog?? :) It's not that I don't do crafts anymore with my kids, I'm just not motivated to upload all the pics and write. Poor, Poor forgotten blog.

BTW - Can we please expect some pigtail pics??!! I bet they're so cute!

I'd love to see the pigtails as well! We haven't braved that for Julia - I'm just scared I'll pull all of her hair out trying to get it smooth. What exact accessory did you use if you don't mind me asking? And 17th out of 289 on Scramble is VERY impressive

Thanks, my loyal friends! I won't let you down!
I will post piggy pics once DH uploads them!
