Blog block

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 […]

This is my FOURTH year participating in the Blogathon, and seeing as I haven’t blogged since the end of January (ACK! How did that happen?!?!?), I figured I needed a good, swift kick in the pants to get going again. Being accountable, to an extent, gives me motivation to meet my goal. The chance to […]

Memories in book form

Did you know that you can make a book from your blog? You probably did know that. I, however, for some reason, did not realize this until recently. When I found out that my friend Laura, who blogs at Wife and Mom Under Construction, makes a blog book every year with that year’s posts, I […]

Blogathon lessons

Today is the last day of the Blogathon. I don’t want to have a boring recap, but I do want to reflect on the biggest lesson I learned this time around. Being forced to blog every day, even though it was self-induced, definitely stifles my creativity. A few times, I’ve written about unimportant and/or uninteresting […]

Rats!

I just logged in to start writing today’s post when I saw that the post I wrote and thought I published yesterday was still in draft mode, meaning I didn’t publish it at all. So, I went ahead and back-dated it to yesterday, since that’s when it was supposed to go live, and am hoping […]

Blog catch-up

My daughters have been spending the last few days reading every post on my blog. They have never read it before, but now that they’ve started, they can’t seem to stop. Rachel’s favorite post so far is The Game Boy Addiction, one of my personal faves as well. She also liked “‘Hot’ — The New ‘Cute’?” […]

Off we go!

I just realized, admittedly with a bit of shock, that today is May 1 and that means the beginning of the annual Blogathon. I’ve been involved in the Blogathon since its inception several years ago. Every year I want to rip my eyelashes out for signing up, but when it’s over, I’m always glad I […]

Blog burn-out

Well, not so much burn-out as just plain not having enough time. I’ve thought of subjects galore on which to blog, but have had neither time nor energy to get it done. I have giveaways to hold, stories to relate, input to receive, pearls of wisdom to impart, and I will. Eventually. Some time. Because […]

I’m getting tired. It’s really hard to think of something to blog about EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Rain or shine. Feel like blogging or not. Dead tired or jacked up. Last night, I fell asleep on the couch in the middle of writing my blog post and didn’t wake up for another couple hours. Still, as […]

The beauty of dandelion bouquets

Logan took awhile to come in after school today. I looked out the window and saw him busily picking dandelions from the backyard. He arrived at the door about five minutes later with his hand behind his back. “Here, Mom,” he said, proudly displaying his bouquet. “I got these for you just now because I […]
