* what I’ve not been doing …

Posted on July 23rd, 2009 by melinda in Another day in the life of me.

I’m having a blog funk.  I truly cannot think of one interesting thing to write about.  Fortunately or unfortunately for blog content my life is quite boring these days.  I haven’t had one harrowing near death debit card experience lately.  I’ve not lost a dog, threatened to kill a dog or gotten any new dogs in over a week now.  Although, speaking of dogs, my psychotic younger daughter decided her dog was not loving the name Godiva so she changed it to Tulsa.   Which worked out really handy for several reasons: a) Richard doesn’t call the dog Gordova, Cordova or Tulsa on purpose incorrectly any longer b) I don’t sound like I’m taking the Lord’s name in vain everytime I take the dog outside & have to call her back to the house c) the dog is not right bright and had no clue she had a name to begin with.   I also have not had any bad or unusual poop bowel movement experiences in a good long while.  I hope I did not just jinx myself.  I have not beaten, mamed, grounded or yelled at either of my kids in at least 2 days.  Or Richard.  I haven’t started a new book, watched any movies, picked my nose … wait, I didn’t mean to say that, done manual labor, cooked anything new or gone on any sort of vacation in the last week or so.  

I have been being held hostage by the remote control operator that I married.  If I have to watch or listen to one more episode of Repo Man, The Verminators, Deadliest Catch, Pinks or Ax Men, I might just throw up in my mouth.  The only saving grace about Richard being in the house watching tv is there is not an ER or NCIS marathon going on right now.  I am very thankful for small blessings.  Please leave me a comment or email me, reminding me that I love my husband and I’m grateful he is spending “quality” time with me.

I’m a more than a little concerned about the lack of goings on around here.  It’s not normal.  It feels like the calm before the storm and that is making me antsy.  As lazy as I am, I need stuff going on around me. Not stuff that involves me getting off my fannie, let’s not get crazy here.  I mean funny, good blogging stuff.   Could one of y’all please get arrested, get pregnant unexpectedly, win the lottery or do something interesting so I can blog about it?  No? Not sounding like a good plan for ya?  Well sometimes you just have to take one for the ole blog team.  Remember, there is no I in team.   However, Anna will quickly point out that there is a Me in team.  She’s very helpful in the area of pointing such things out. 

Since I have been doing nothing interesting lately .. head down to the comments section and share with us all something interesting you’ve been doing.  I’m about to be bored.
