Has my blogging motivation gone? Two posts ago, I was thrilled to pieces (not out loud...just in my head) that I had crossed the 700 post line but then WHAM! It's as if I can't put words together to form sentences. And the longer I go without posting, the more difficult it becomes.
I remember that a while back I read something on a blog (probably Anna's?) that if you want to write, write everyday. Just write. Don't worry about it. So that's my goal for now. Just write. Sadly for you, that means that you'll be reading lots of meaningless stuff. And now I'll stop explaining and just get on with it.
April has been a positively lovely month so far and there are still plenty of things to look forward to before it’s over. Oh! But let’s go back to the end of March and my birthday! I had a wonderful birthday that involved dinner with friends at one of our favorite restaurants, and two great gifts from Dave.
First was a Roku box for our bedroom TV. We have one downstairs, but when the kids are home or during golf tournaments I’ll often sneak upstairs to watch a DVD. (my bedroom TV isn’t hooked up to our Direct TV). So it’s nice to have some other options, too. Not to mention that it plays my Pandora stations and several other radio shows that I love!
And the second wonderful gift? Magnifying eyeglasses with LIGHTS! Kind of like these Illumineyes, but more stylish looking:
They are faaaabulouuuuuuus! You can keep your sexy lingerie and sparkly jewelry….give me light up eyeglasses any day! I can turn off all of the bedroom lights and read in bed without bothering anyone else. Of course, our goofy friends had to make bawdy jokes about why I would need light up magnifiers in bed, anyway. But really…he set himself up for it.
Then there were the gifts from my children, which were less - - - tangible. Because they forgot. I know they’re busy, so at around 10PM I sent them each a text message:
“It’s still my birthday.”
And then my phone started ringing. I love making them feel guilty. I know. I’m a bad, bad mother.
OK – time to work. More April Antics tomorrow.
