Rachel's most recent comment has reminded me that I am in a SERIOUS blogging slump. But that's a lie, it didn't really remind me, I was VERY aware of my lack of blog inspiration. I've sat down and started several posts, only to delete them minutes later. We're going on almost two weeks...that's no good. Before you know it this blog will find it's self with the same fate as my journal with an entry once a year. That would be such a shame. I really have loved blogging...actually I just remembered that I started this blog about a year ago....sometime in early September. Wow! I feel so proud, it's like watching my baby turn one. I'll have to plan a special birthday celebration. OK I'm losing topic here. So...basically I've hit a blogging slump. Not an ounce of creativity in me at the moment...so to continue this boring post I'll just give you a sample of the mundane we've experienced around here lately:
Ethan starts school Monday and we bought all of his school clothes this week. They wear uniforms at his school and the other day I forced him to try all his new school clothes on and model them for me. By model, I mean whine and stomp and beg me not to make him put on a belt and shoes. What a mean mom...a belt and shoes...cruel and unusual. He was adorable with his little polo and khaki pants, he looked like a little business man. You know I will be out there the first day embarrassing the smile right off of him snapping all sorts of pictures.
This one isn't boring...We've had company here for a couple of weeks. Ben Strader, is going to grad school here and they have been with us while they get settled. It's been fun...Preston is an early bird and he usually falls asleep super early so it's been fun having people stay up and party with me every night!!
I've had a series of strange dreams...really strange. I just dreamt that I was trapped in an elevator during an earthquake and it bounced me inside like a bouncy ball. I kept hitting the ceiling...OK, I'm taking a stand, putting an end to this boredom. Are you sleeping yet. I told you things have been boring.
I had a few more boring experiences to share but this is putting ME to sleep. I can't imagine what it's doing to you.
To end this on a more exciting note... here's a yummy recipe I just tried...it's a sad day when the most interesting piece of info you can share from your last two weeks is a cookie recipe. But thus it is. It's from the New York Times and described as the World's Best Chocolate Chip Cookie. I tried them and they were VERY VERY good and they stayed soft for days...well I'm not sure they lasted that long in this house but they stayed soft for as long as they lasted and that's a big accomplishment for dry and hot Arizona.
