I sat here for a couple hours this morning trying to decide what to write about. I have so many topics swirling around in my head, I couldn’t decide which one to go with. Should I blog about the 5-week-old Yorkie puppy we have been dog-sitting for the past week and how sad I am that she’s supposed to go home today because I’ve always wanted a Yorkie puppy and we were supposed to get one of her siblings but they all died? Maybe I should write about how crazy this summer has been with extra kids around for much of it (Andie has been baby-sitting). Then there’s the whole “I-can’t-wait-for-school-to-start-again” aspect as my kids tire of each others’ constant company and bicker more every day. Or I could talk about how having bigger kids really does mean dealing with bigger problems and how often I have been scrabbling for good ways to deal with said problems lately. I might explain why I haven’t posted in so long — lack of focus, uncertainty about the direction in which I want to take my blog and how to get it there — or the facelift my house interior received in the last month, thanks to my friend’s college-age daughter and some paint.
The truth is that I can’t decide which topic to focus on, and I need to get another post up yet today.
So, enjoy this picture of the adorable puppy we’ve been watching, plus Logan’s latest Mommy creation, complete with horrific spelling errors:
There. I do believe I’ve given you your sugar fix for the day.
