Rambling.

rambling.

it's what i do best, actually.

it's been so long since i've actually rambled that i've forgotten that it's one of my favorite things to do on this blog.
usually my rambles are my most overlooked posts because they're not that interesting to some but the ones that actually do leave comments are usually the ones that have followed my blog for a long time.

blogging is a weird thing.  you try so hard to fit in, to play the part but then you end up getting lost in trying to be the perfect blog/blogger.
that's where i've found myself.
i've been pushing out random posts just to have posts up instead of actually blogging.
i've been so busy with life and the kids and david home on leave for his fractured tailbone that blogging has taken a backseat and for that i apologize.  i also apologize for my halfassed  lack of energy in my posts lately.

i think it's just the time of year that life gets busy.
maddie being in part day prek has definitely thrown off my routine as well.
my blog suffers, my house suffers, i've lost my routine; it's just weird.  i mean i drop her (and fin) off at 9 and pick her back up at 11:30 (10:45 on tuesdays).  it just leaves me with an odd amount of time and a weird interruption in my day.  

life happens, guys.
i'm not really sorry for that, i can't help that.
i am sorry for my measly mediocre blog posts though.  psht.
i can do better than that and you guys deserve better than that.

and i also promise more rambles. because i forgot how nice it is to just ramble.

and because no post is complete without a picture....

On a less gloom/rambley note-
A few friends and I got together to give away $225 COLD HARD (paypal) CASH! YAY!

Could you use a bit extra cash for the Holidays?! I know I could so I thought I'd get some fellow bloggers together to make that happen for one lucky duck! Today we're giving away $225 cold hard cash money (via paypal).
Anyone can enter as long as they have a paypal account for me to send the money to.
Good luck and God speed my friends.

  1. You should never be sorry for not having time to blog because you're trying to make time simply living life. Your kids, your family--that's your priority. Don't overwhelm yourself because you couldn't get a post in. Your loyal readers will be here when you have time to blog. :)

  9. Rambling posts, to me, are the best kinds of posts to read as well as write. Don't stop writing those, and don't worry if you're not posting every single day!

    CUTE CHILD. That is all. ;)

  10. Your rambles are my favorites:) Everyone gets in a blogging funk. I know I have!

    And if I won, it would definitely be used for going to awesome Christmas activities with the family! Like the Ice Sculptures in Nashville. I haven't been to one of those since I was in middle school.

  15. It stinks to know that you're just trying to churn out posts rather than actually blogging in a way that brought you to the blogging world in the first place. If I were to win, I'd put the money toward some new clothes to fit my body now that I've lost 70 pounds.

  32. I never get to blog as much as I think I should because I am surrounded by people who need me and they come first. And I made a decision after some really crappy "nothing" posts to only say something when I had something to say! I think you're doing fine! Thanks for the great giveaway too...I don't enter many but this one seemed too good not to and I've got some new blog friends now, too! Bonus!
