Chirp. Chirp.



Just so you know, I come up with the most brilliant stuff for my blog in the middle of the night when my insomnia is in full gear, usually right around 2:30am or so. My vocabulary is rockin' the mic like some obscurely intricate jazz mixed up with a little of the Hippity Hop. The topics are pertinent, funny, poignant, and/or controversial. They generate gads of comments. There's even a regular troll or two b/c I consistently rile 'em up with my stellar wee hours musings.

It's really too bad I'm never on (or near) my computer when I am having these creative bursts of brilliance. Because you know, they're all just in my head, and there's a sleeping toddler at my side, and G-d forbid I should wake her up by daring to get out of bed so I can write this sh*t down. And of course by morning, in true Mommy Brain fashion, *poof* they're gone.

I'm no Alaina, Jen, Maggie or Leah that's for damn sure... but that's okay, b/c thankfully they are. And I get to read them, and so many other great bloggers every single day. Which is why I'm rarely here. Well, that & let's just be honest shall we? I'm usually wasting tons of prime writing time fiddling about on Twitter or Facebook. If I could just muster up the courage to ditch at least one of those two time sucks from my daily life, I likely be here more often.

Maybe I'd even have something to say. Or at least some better photographs to share.

Or not.

:-)

At least when you do write something, people actually read it.

I come up with my most brilliant posts when I'm drunk.

Oh, wait - that's Jenny's comment. ;)

No, really, I do the same thing, all kinds of amazing things swirling around in my head, but in the morning they're gone. They say you should keep a notebook next to you when you sleep, but I only remember that little rule at night when I'm lying there.

Seriously, thank you for the kind words.

Also, for the record, I LOVE JENNY. She knows that.

Did you really just lump me in with that pile of awesome, and not even include yourself, and include me, and not you. Oh, jeebus Woman. Get over here! If I get to be in the pile, you TOTALLY get to be in the pile!

Maggie and Leah, seriously... you gals rock my socks. And no, I'm NOT in the same league as a writer/blogger, but that's okay b/c I'm not a writer. I'm just a mama who puts her personal crap out there for about 26 people to read. HAHA.

I <3 you!

Steve, I <3 you too my friend. And I miss you. Mwuah!

I am forever jealous of the brilliant writers who click 'submit' on witty and interesting posts daily. How do they do it? How do they corral those words into a post, and stir them so they not only make sense, but inspire people to go, do, see?

I could not ever be a writer. It doesn't stop me from rambling on my blog ... but still. I could not ever be a writer.

And don't you DARE leave Twitter. *grins*

As an exhausted Mama of a 3yo and a 1yo, I have come to the conclusion that coherent sentences are so overrated. And tiring to even consider! Screw em.

How's your house exterior looking?
