Brain Freeze

I know you're all getting tired of looking at my last post, it's just that every time I think of what to do for my next post, I come up blank! These are the things that I don't want to write about because they're just mundane and boring:

  • How Girl's Camp Meetings and planning are taking over my life and how I'm kind of dreading it.
  • How Brad trimmed what was once a nice healthy green bush into a weak, brown, sickly-looking shrub and I was a little upset, but now I laugh every time I pass it (it's FRONT and CENTER) because what else can you do but laugh? Well, we can pull it out, which I really think needs to happen.
  • How I don't have any pictures of the last few weeks because I'm too lazy to put the batteries in the recharger. (I'm going to stop and do it right now...okay. Did it!)
  • How even after the bush disaster, Brad still wanted to trim, so he was pulling down the trimmers, and cut himself and we had to take him to the ER so he could get stitches.
  • How I'm excited for our trip to Oregon, but not looking forward to the THREE flights that it will take to get us there.
  • How I love our new pool. I know, could we get any more white trash? But this was on sale, and it's as big as we can get without spending a whole bunch of money! And it's WAY hot down here. Seriously. It's Hades.
  • How Ty and I spent six hours in our pool the other day, and although we both lathered on the sunscreen often, I guess we didn't enough because we both got sunburned, and this was his first one.
  • How we have to talk in Sacrament on Sunday, and my anxiety about it.
  • How I like the Mole on ABC, although I miss the good old days when Anderson Cooper hosted it.
  • How Brad's been working insane hours with insane situations involving birthparents.
  • How we painted an accent wall a nice slate blue color. I actually like it. We also painted our armoir black.
  • How I found some great deals at the Thrift Store tonight. I guess Thursday night is a good night cause they're stocking up for the big weekend crowd.

Okay, that's about it. I'm really only doing this as a stall tactic because it's my bill-paying night, and I don't want to face all the bills!!! If anyone has ideas for future posts, I'd love to hear them, cause I'm losing my blogging steam!


  1. I'm so glad you answered my unspoken question about Brad's trip to the E.R. Uncle Bry told us on Sunday that Brad got cut and had to get stiches. But that's all he knew. Hope he's ok.

    I think we married the same man. Hank loves to trim all of our shrubs, trees, bushes. Anything he can find. He doesn't care what season it is or how much he cuts off. The more the better.

    And, last night I came home from an after hours Urgent Care clinic visit with Montana (nasty ear infection)and found Hank on the couch with a big bandage wrapped around his pinkie. He had almost chopped his finger off with the edger. He was trying to clean off the blades and he had his hand on the on button. Oops.

    Sorry about the long comment. It's almost like a whole new post for you. Your welcome.

  2. I think this was a perfect post. No need to be too clever when its just as enjoyable to read this stuff--and I already knew it all! Looking forward to Sunday...

  3. Your mundane, boring life is very comical! That's the point of a journal, scrapbook, place to vent,show off your paint colors. By the way, we bought the same white trash pool, but all it does is rain here in Oregon now a days. Rain, rain go away. You're making me crazy, but that's pretty normal:0)

  4. I agree with Spencer. No need for a "clever" post... this one was perfect.

    (I like The Mole, too. So far. Also wondering where Anderson Cooper was...)

  5. I miss's fun reading what you are up to.

    I also love the mole..can't wait to see how this season goes.

    So is Texas hot like Vegas Hot?? or more like Missouri hot..with hair flat and sweat dripping from your forehead nonstop hot??? Try to keep cool there.

  6. Mmm, I hate paying bills too. Mostly because the money doesn't stretch far enough.

    As to blog ideas - how hosting a day for my virtual book tour on my book. If you're interested, drop me a line ( and I'll send you all the info.

    Other than that, I pretty blog about whatever strikes my fancy. I write about politics, religion, life, culture, thoughts, dreams, recipes, health, book and movie reviews . . . hmmm, I need a vacation.

  7. I agree... it is Hades! I have been so hot for the last 2-3 weeks that I've considered buying that same pool! HA!

    I am sure that you will do wonderful on Sunday! For some reason the whole 'just picture everyone in their underwear' thing just doesn't seem to be appropriate in church. hm

  8. My sister has a similar pool in her backyard and boy does that thing get used! Although, its been too cold here in Oregon to try it out this year- hopefully soon we'll get some warmth and sunshine again!!

    I would love to see photos of your accent wall and newly painted Armoir! There's a post idea for ya! I love all that HGTV type stuff.
