Big Daddy does it again:)

I feel like I don’t know when I’m going to blog next because I have so much going through my head.  None of it bad, or pressing issues.  I could blog about my birthday, V-day, knitting, baby J, my daughter J, Big Daddy, life, work (that doesn’t sound fun), things that bother me (I already did that and I don’t want this to be a soapbox type of blog, but sometimes it’s just necessary).  I think this is what they call writers block, but since I don’t consider myself a writer I wouldn’t know.

I have not been a very good blog buddy…sorry ladies.  I guess I just haven’t found something that’s made me stop and HAVE to write about it.  Life has been good, got lots of presents for my bday/vday (separate presents, I hate combo gifts).

I just upped the cuteness factor by 10

The kids are all thriving, and the dogs – we got a new one to add to the madness, they are all happy and sleeping through the night (and have learned what a bark collar does).  I don’t have much to blog about besides how great things are, and that is enough to write about for a while, but I don’t want to take time out of the greatness to sit here and write about it.

I’ll leave you with this promise for more.  My sister and I were talking the other morning in an unplanned 7 am FB chat, which was absolutely awesome, and something that was bothering her had also been an issue for me and another friend of ours all at different times in the last few weeks.  I mentioned that I was going to blog about it, since it seems that it’s common and unwanted (the issue, not my blog :P).

Stay tuned for a possible rant, because if I other people can speak freely…then so can I.

While trying to think of what to write about, since nothing has come to me…I was going to check what people read about on my blog.  I find this funny – here are the “searches” that led people to my blog last week/this week:

“big circle knit stitches, nasty letters that tell someone off in a nice way, husbands take wives for granted poems, I’m a grandma ode, status updates about drama”

On the upside, while I don’t post about those topics, last week this post generated the most reads ever on my blog!

So, keep searching for what you are and hopefully you’ll keep reading.

I finished ONE sock last night, my first one. (It’s my blog I can put up random pics of my knitting!)

This morning I was guilted encouraged by my blog buddy (kidding) to write a post, so off I go for inspiration.  I got nothin’.

I found this article on post a day 2011 that asks us to free write when we are “blocked.”  Here is what they recommend:

First decide how long you want to free write for, then set a timer. Five to ten minutes is a good start, but feel free to challenge yourself with a longer session.

Ready? Go! Don’t prepare anything — just start writing everything that pops into your head, regardless of how nonsensical or bizarre it is. Don’t even bother with grammar and punctuation — just keep your fingers typing, and don’t stop until the timer goes off. (If you find yourself on a roll, by all means, keep writing!)

The final step? Analyze the results.What sentences catch your attention? Did you find a new way to articulate what’s on your mind? Did you remember something funny or interesting? Did you explore a new perspective on an issue?

Remember that free writes don’t have to generate lots of usable content to be valuable. They’re simply intended to help you generate new ideas, organize your thoughts, and get unstuck.

Ok, I don’t know if you’ve read my posts, but I tend to word vomit enough without just typing what’s popping in my head.  At this very moment…

-Pat Robertson is annoying

– where is the remote

– so is his son

– I haven’t emailed back my work goals sheet for this week

– my ring is turning on my finger, am I losing the steroid weight finally

– it’s cold

– I need to wake D up

– I’m hungry

– my sister hasn’t answered my text

– i need to get smaller knitting needles so my next sock isn’t giant size

– need to order J’s b-day cake for Sunday

– where is the remote

– if i have to hear another SOB story on 700 club I’m going to lose it

– k, the Doctors is on

– we needs stamps

– how long am I going to do this running dialogue?

See.  Not at all writing material.  I think I found my to do list for today though – SCORE!

So, what would your “right now” dialogue be?  Do you think everyone has as sketchy, all over the map, scary thoughts or am I the only one willing to admit it?
