I have about 6 blog posts drafted. And nary a one has been published. Because I just can't seem to get my words out. I don't know if I'm going through a blog funk or what, but my brain and my fingers just can't seem to get their act together.
So...I decided to make a plan. A blog post plan. At least for today.
And I'm limiting myself to 3 categories. Because that seems like good organizational genius.
(The best is the last, but don't you dare scroll through the first 2 in a whacko attempt to beat my system. I have ways of finding out....oh yes I do.)
First on my agenda: A recap of what we've been up to. But I'm going to fill it with lots of eye fodder and go easy on the wordage. You're welcome.
Baseball: Tournament is over. Boys didn't win. Found out that parents are sorer losers than kids. Go figure. Boys had fun. (No pictures....sorry.)
Fourth of July: Spent at the baseball field. And in the car driving to inlaws. Watched fireworks from inside MIL's van in desperate attempt to not be eaten alive by horse-sized Missouri mosquitoes. (No pictures....more sorry.)
Fifth of July: Took 3 hour nap while at MIL's, because I could. Ate homemade icecream...yum. And spent 5 hours in the car with uber-exhausted kids and grouchirific husband. (No pictures....still sorry.)
Sixth of July: Had good intentions to clean my house. Didn't happen. Took a nap and laid around all day. Blissful laziness. Then.....
We headed over to a belated 4th of July party and surprise birthday shindig at some of our besties' house.
Those of us who didn't have to meet our personal trainer at dark o'thirty the next morning ate these.
And those of us who had to meet with the exercise nazi ate these.
I ate 3 hotdogs. If you're wondering which group I was in.
Then we celebrated Lisa's birthday.
And there were even party hats....because every good party needs a party hat....even if they are Transformers because that is all that WM had.
And there was lots of chit-chatting.
And posing for pictures.
And then fireworks outside put on by the master pyrotechnics team of Wes-N-Kirk.
And then, much to the chagrin of our resident doctor friend, we allowed the little people to shoot off their own. The Good Doctor even took pictures of the children doing so...but I'm pretty sure that they were to be used as evidence if/when the need ever arose.
And there was lots of laughing....as always whenever our motley crew gets together!
Happy 6th of July!
Second on my agenda: It's time for ASK AMBER ANYTHING! It's been awhile since I've asked for questions, and since I'm suffering from some minor bloggy blockage, then I'm handing you the reins to spur my posting. So....just leave me a question in the comments about anything your little heart desires, and I'll give it a whirl. (Remember....anything goes....from personal questions to my theory on why MJ wore only one glove.)
Third on my agenda: Because I'm having a day heavy on the BLECH, I'm in the mood for a little pick-me-up. And nothing picks me up more than seeing people I love smile. And because I heart you all so stinkin' much....than it's time to make you smile. And so....IT'S TIME FOR A BLOGGY GIVE-AWAY!!! (See...I told you that I saved the best for last!!)
I was in my local Christian book store the other day and found the most amazing set of bracelets. They are sterling silver, bangle style, and have various designs with Bible verses and words of truth. They are so beautiful, and so wearable with anything.
SO...I picked up one and am going to send it to one of you sweet people. Because I heart ya!!
All you have to do is leave me a comment. (And that should be easy, because you are already asking me a question....right?!) I'll do a random drawing on Friday, July 10, so you have several days to enter. And enter more than once if ya want....I don't mind!
So....there ya have it.
Can't wait to hear from ya!
And thanks for being so patient and wading through all that gobbledygook!
