I’m whacked out.  Like I seriously believe some should take away my blogging license for the next 6 weeks until my emotions start behaving normally (as in, what was normal to me) again.  (Wouldn’t that be neato if ‘they’ actually did administer blogging licenses, and they were valid at family dinners and political meetings and discussions in general and people automatically respected your opinion because you have constructively expressed it on a regular basis?  Just something to think about.)

I have started about 20 different entries… all of them involve me raving about some thing or another… appropriate word there is raving.  I seriously have no idea if I am being passionate or just blabbering on and on about something somewhat intelligent because I am lacking that type of conversation with my 3 year old.

Needless to say, which I always end up saying anyway, I am going to try and refrain from anything that involves me being emotional.  Basically, I am going to start writing about green envelopes.  That seems to be the only thing that doesn’t set me off. However, I am now imagining a hysterical rant about the injustice of being a green envelope in a white envelope world. 


I will probably be back to post pictures tonight… I have some more of my kids.  And even though they make me cry, go figure, I need to share them with the world.  Or, all my 10’s of readers anyway.

God bless-


P.S. Did I mention I’m pregnant?

  1. Just wait. In less than a year you’ll have to figure out how to carry three little ones all at once with only two arms. Let me tell ya’ it ain’t easy, but it can and has been done…. P.S. Pregnancy REALLY DOES switch off your brain cells — just one of the many things they “forget” to mention in all those wonderful books.LOL. And God gives us a special blessing — we get nine months to get to know our new baby before we have to share them with everyone else!
    Love and Blessings!

  2. You sound like you are having a week like I have had. Some days are just harder to get through. lol I think it depends on how tired we are. You are all in my prayers. Hugs, Janie

  3. Ah hon, take some deep breaths every chance you get. It’s one of those facts that honestly the baby is taking away part of our oxygen and it messes with us, then add on all those hormones. I’m sending you lots of hugs and prayers. Before you know it, you’re going to be feeling this sweet one moving around inside of you, and then if you decide to, you’ll be finding out if it’s a girl or a boy, then in a blink of an eye she/he will be here in your arms! It’s amazing how quickly it all goes from pregnancy (although it doesn’t feel like it when we’re pregnant) to raising our babies/kids.
    I’m always here IM me anytime!

  4. No worries Amanda. I am right there with you! I call it my pregnancy brain and it’s a great excuse for everything! 🙂 lol (Drives my husband nuts! lol) Hope you have a great day!

  5. OMG…I totally want a blogging license!!! Seriously…how cool would that be…I would be the expert at everything no matter where I went…lol.
    I would offer some advice about pregnancy but it has been so long since I was pregnant that it’s all a vague blur…lol.
    I do remember that I couldn’t even remember my phone number when the receptionist asked for it. Although, that happens now alot too…lol.
    Have a great day!
