A post with no point

I must say that the past month’s unintentional blogging slow-down has been nice. I haven’t gotten all stressed about my stats and subscribers and such. And yet the internet did NOT fall off it’s axis and y’all still stopped by to say hi and to check in.

(how sweet are y’all??!!?)

I was talking with a friend on the phone the other day and told her that I felt as though my blogging mojo was returning because I found myself crafting posts in my head. A far cry from the empty vessel my brain has been recently.

While I don’t have a story crafted for my post today, I do have a list of semi-gargantuan proportions chocked full of random nuggets of random randomness.

~ Quinn lost his first tooth. He came home from school 2 weeks ago, mentioned he had a loose tooth and had that sucker out before bedtime. He is saving up for a CloneWar toy. I’m surprised he hasn’t yanked all of his teeth out to pay for it.

~ Quinn also got sent home from school a week ago. The sheriff came to our home because the school couldn’t reach me. Quinn was covered in chigger bites (same song, 20th verse) from a trip into the woods. Someone thought they looked like chicken pox. He was not allowed back in school without a note stating that he wasn’t contagious. Fortunately, they have off school this week, so he’ll have time to heal those bites (or scratch the heck out of them and end up with impetigo again, and have to stay out of school for that next week…)

~ Several weeks ago, I purchased a can of Rust-o-leum spray paint to purty up some lamps my mom was getting rid of. The cashier asked for ID because of an apparent surge of middle aged women taking up “huffing“. It was really funny too me at the time, but after watching an episode of Intervention where the girl was addicted to Air Duster, I will never think of the song “Walking On Sunshine” in the same way. (and then I spoke with my two oldest about inhalants.)

~ NESTER and ROBIN are staying with me next weekend. That alone will be Bliss.

~ I will be moving my blog to WordPress soon. I already have it up but I used it to test a header for someone else.

~ I received a ZUNE for my birthday. Now someone please tell me: what do I need to do with it? Recommendations?

So tell me, please: What is up in your world?


  1. I’m also trying to find my blogging mojo.

    Missed ya lots!

  2. Robin ~ PENSIEVE says


    Blogging mojo–AND MORE–will be there with bells on :).

  3. I wish I could come to Blissdom and get my blogging mojo back. It’s shamefully gone, for a while now. Luckily I still manage to get posts up for BD, but other than that…it’s sad. Any suggestions?

  4. Michelle Smiles says

    I found it hysterical when I got carded to buy spray paint too – especially considering I was toting around 2 small children.

  5. Just a question: You said it is middle-aged women “huffing”. So, they I.D.ed you because they don’t sell them to middle-aged women?? :) I didn’t think you were that old!

    Hello, by the way… Do you remember me? After a year-long blogging break, I’m back! It’s good to be back – I’ll be popping in here regularly!

  6. That is a VERY cute photo of your baby! :-)

  7. Well, since you asked, the only thing up in my world is trying to integrate the newest family member into the household, and all the craziness that entails.

    I got my roots done a week ago, you’ll be glad to know. Also, I finally got the whole master bathroom cleaned. My bedroom still resembles a dungeon, but I’m just one sleep-deprived lactating woman.

    Also, the little food-face kid in the post? Let me just say that the Cutie-Pie Factor in your house must be way high.

    My blog has been dead, too, but I’m doing that writing-posts-in-my-head thing, too, so I know I really want some time for it again.

  9. Ok, my feed reader is bustin’ out the seems and I’m so far behind, but I read your tweet and I’ve made the long drive just to come over here and say that your picture of the little one is ABSOLUTELY adorable.

    First of all, I love your knew profile picture. It is great. Secondly, can I say, again, how sad I am that I don’t live in or near Nashville. You are all going to have so much fun at BlissDom! I am jealous. Also, I am tickled pink that you, Alli, and all the other ladies at Blissfully Domestic are able to do this. What an accomplishment. It is a credit to the hard work that you have done.
    So, glad you posted something. Your comment about being carded for the “inhalant” made me laugh.

  11. Me too. About that WordPress thing. I’m switching the shoppe to WP and let me tell you, I’m nervous. LOL

    That whole spray paint thing makes as much sense as me being carded to buy a glass of wine. Please. Please! Card me!

  12. PinkDaisyGirl says

    I love to read your blog and have never left a commment, until now. I just had to let you know that your new photo is absolutely beautiful!

    And also that pretty soon they are going to be carding us when we buy our corn flakes and toilet paper, because it’s only a mattter of time until someone figures out an illegal use for them too.
