If I do come up with something, it's usually while I'm getting ready for bed and I'm so do-tired, I can't even begin to think about pulling out the laptop.
I think I need to just take the first step.
Make the first move.
Just start typing and let the words come out.
I have been in a HUGE writing funk lately. Nothing...and I do mean NOTHING...has seemed interesting enough to blog about lately. And if I do come up with something, it's usually while I'm getting ready for bed and I'm so dog-tired, I can't even begin to think about pulling out the laptop.
If it doesn't get any better soon, I may take up one of those blogging-challenges in October. Why not September, you ask? Aaaaaaaah...you've forgotten about the 'Women's Expo', mon amis. (Is that spelling even in the ballpark?)
Since returning to my old job, I've re-inherited some of my old responsibilities including the Women's Expo. Fun stuff...but its only adding to my EXTREMELY high stress levels. I can't even begin to tell you how stressed I am, except to say that I'm starting to have ulcer symptoms.
Yea. Fun stuff.
Anyway...I don't want to bore you with tales about my health. You're here for an update. Hmmm...Let's see. What can I come up with for a blog post.
I have had a few requests for updates on Maddie. Its been awhile since I've given you a full-fledged update...so consider that on the agenda in the next few days. You guys will hardly recognize her, I'm telling you. Something happened over the course of the summer and the Madster has SERIOUSLY grown up. Well, its not like she's turning 18 or something - but she's talking in more complete and easy-to-understand sentences. She's understanding more concepts and she's adding all kinds of new words to her vocabulary, daily. I'll give you an update, soon.
Maddie's first day of school is Tuesday. I'll be sure to post pictures of both the Madster happily trotting off to her first day - and me blubbering like an idiot in the background. I have a box of kleenex at the ready. I'm thinking about going out getting a second as a backup. My baby is going to kindergarten...need I say more?
Alek and Nick are heavy into fall baseball right now. They are both loving it. I'm enduring. I love the sport - I'm not loving what its doing to our schedule right now. We're at the ballfield no less than four nights a week and with the start of school the evenings are going to be a little long for my taste. Oh, well. Its only for a month and I'll know better next year.
Anya's life has been pretty quiet this summer. No great growth spurts. No huge milestones. No great drama. She's quietly growing up and maturing into someone pretty darn special. I love this girl, more than I can tell you. She's always taking care of someone, doing household chores without being asked and just generally being the responsible one around here.
She's going to be the one who takes care of me in my old age, I'm tellin' ya! :)
And speaking of old age...I have a birthday tomorrow...which means I'm only 366 days away from the big 4-0.
So there you have it. A post. I didn't think I had it in me.
I'll see if I can do it again tomorrow! :)
