So apparently, my blogger's block hasn't ended. Throughout the day, I usually have thoughts like, "oh, I'll blog this!" ...lately, not so much. The thought of stringing together coherent thoughts makes me nervous. I have been a little out of sorts lately. Not unhappy, not bored, but...something. Something inside me has been feeling off, and I don't know what it is. Everything is fine, I am happy and blessed and life is great. Maybe I just need therapy!
So, to get some of my thoughts out, I have decided to use bullet points for tonight's blog. The ultimate cure for lack of cleverness.

*Adam and I saw Benjamin Button. I was a choking, sobbing mess in the end, and was grateful that we saw the late show and left at 1:30 am. I can't stop thinking about the movie...I feel like it's something that happened to me, rather than something I saw.

*Tomorrow we get a new president (did you hear?). Let me refrain from being annoying and ---Oh, screw it WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*I'm so grateful for my friends. Some of my very best ones just left my house after dinner, tv, wine, and great conversation. They brighten my world.

*I'm starting to doubt my ability to successfully parent a stubborn, strong willed child. Charlie is a handful lately, and I just can't seem to get him to WANT to be nice. He is still sweet usually, but just isn't listening. Mallory is going through such a cute, sweet age that the contrast of the two makes me guessed it....GUILTY.

*I am becoming a better cleaner these days.

*I want a WiiFit!

*I really miss Adam. Sometimes these weeks are so long without him here.

*For girl's night out last week, I brought along an old friend. Seeing her have so much fun made my night. Thanks, April, for finally coming out with us!

*I hate tax season, because my mom is so busy! We really miss her this time of year.

*My sister and her hubby are getting ready to move in to their own place! I am so excited and proud of her. Little family of three will be right at home there.

*I have GOT to take my camera to be fixed because I am going nuts without one.

*I want Julie and Steven's proposal to come. Now.

*I am thinking about skipping preschool tomorrow, mainly because I am not sure I have enough gas to make it, and I don't think I want to even deal with it. That's pretty terrible, I know.

*We are letting Charlie's hair grow out and it looks adorable!

*I finally watched The Dark Knight last night and it was AWESOME. I asked about 674 questions throughout the movie.

*To end on a happy note, do YA KNOW what tomorrow is???? ;)

So there. Some of the things that are on my mind, without me having to put them in paragraph form. Lazy, uninspired, yes...I need to shake this off!!

:::gasp!::: Mentioned in Heather's blog - - I feel so. . . honored. I had a blast!!!! By the way my soreness went away - isn't that awful. Gah.

And you need a Wii Fit - - but then you'll never blog because you'll be on it all the time! Doug and I are really competitive so the second he beats anything I've done I automatically spend the next hour trying to beat him, but it's fun.

I know you are so excited about today - I just about can't believe you aren't in D.C. today.

I think it's called being a girl; at least that's my excuse.

My parents said the same thing about Benjamin. I must see it. That's right after I find a babysitter.

OMG, I am right there with you about Julie and Steven. It's beyond time.

Please post pictures of Charlie's hair. I know it is to die.

You sound a little depressed ): Maybe 'The happiest place on earth' is in order? I have a policy of not going when people visit us and go to Disneyland, but for you I would make an exception. And you (and Steph) are really cute. Thanks, I'm ready too!

Hey Heather, I know what you mean about the stubborn strong willed child...I was there big time w/ Emmett about 4 months ago, and still now am on a "maintenance plan" fact, people's reaction to meeting him back then, was "he's beautiful" followed by "he's a handful" or "you've got (or going to have) your hands full with him". What helped me (and him) incredibly well was the book Raising Your Spirited Child. I can't recommend it enough if you haven't read it. I'm not a big self-helpish book reader, but I was desperate. And it worked.
Good luck!
