Catching Up

So I have been itching to blog. To REALLY blog. To talk about important things and be funny or moving or...something. To get away from posting picture after picture and actually write. But today, on a day I am finally caught up on the pictures of our lives, I am drawing a blank. I can think of nothing worth writing. I keep starting, then scrapping it. Not enough details, not interesting enough, not really blog worthy. you see where this is that I am out of pictures, I bring you bullets!

  • I am still on my reading kick. I cannot read a book fast enough. Right now I am reading South of Broad, and you all, it is wonderful. Just wonderful. You should all read it. Don't give up on it, it takes about 75 pages to get interesting.
  • A guy at work, seeing how much I like to read, brought in a bunch of hard back books his mom was going to donate to the library. He said I could have my pick of them. Is it wrong that the first thing I thought was, "Man...These could bring some money on ebay..."
  • For the record, I only took four. Three I want to read, one I already read and loved so much I would like to add it to my book collection. The keeper was The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, if you were curious.
  • We are officially having our new heating and air systems installed today. Do you know how painful it is to write a check for nearly $7000 for air. It hurts, I tell you. It hurts bad.
  • In a related bullet, it was cold last night. I am ready to regain temperature control of my house. Screw you mother nature, I will retake control.
  • We went and saw the movie RED for our anniversary. It was enjoyable. But it was the first movie we have been to in ages, so it is possible we just liked being out of the house.
  • Speaking of movies, have you seen the new Harry Potter trailer? I am so excited you all. So, so excited.
  • I feel like I should have things to write about trying to have a baby, but I don't. We want another baby. We really hope we can have one. We really hope we don't have to spend money. I think about it all the time, but not in a coherent writable way. But still, the thoughts, they are consuming.
  • Last night we watched The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, and when the Charlie Brown music came on, Henry started dancing. It was the cutest thing I have ever seen in my life.
  • For some unknown reason, I actually thought the Great Pumpkin came at the end and gave Linus presents. It was sorta sad when he didn't show.
  • Lucy is a real bitch.
  • I don't think I have ever actually watched The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown before last night.
  • We are still having sleeping issues. I don't think they will ever go away. I have accepted it.
  • Nick got a splinter the length of a penny stuck in his finger last night. It was so horrible it still makes my skin crawl when I think about him pulling it out. *shudder*
  • Tomorrow night our city is closing down Main Street and allowing a ton of people dressed up as zombies to do the thriller dance down the street. We are going and taking Henry. Should be fun.
  • I am a little over excited about taking Henry trick or treating. He is so cute in his costume and I want to show him off, which means I am sure he will have a fit and we will only make it to one house.
  • I hope he knows he has to share his candy.
Okay you all. I am going to stop. Sorry this is bullets. Sorry I am lame. Please come back and read again soon. I may have pictures...


  1. I have to say right off I am glad your comment area pops up in a separate window so I can look at your post while I comment. lol

    I hate it when there is nothing good to blog about, but you really want to blog.

    I think that because of people like us, hard copy books will never ever go away. Screw you e-readers! I likes me a library IN my house.

    We took that $7k new air conditioner hit a couple of years ago. I know all too well how painful it is. Please just tell me you didn't buy it from Se.ars. If you did, might as well tell them to come take it back out now and save yourself the service calls and the fact that they only answer the phones Mon-Fri 8-5. That's right, if that puppy goes out after 5:00 on a Friday night, your screwed ALL WEEKEND.

    The new HP trailer kind of annoys me because it skips from one scene to the next every nano second, so you don't really get a good look at what's going on. I get that it is action packed, but can't you give me a little something to sink my teeth into for the preview?

    I can't wait to see pictures of Henry in his costume! Have a safe and happy Halloween!

  2. Bullets are fine with me :o)

    Ouch about the heating and air system. Tim and I so wanted to buy a house but there is no way we could ever afford one with the massive deposits you need these days. But more and more we are realising we have a good deal renting (despite the obvious drawbacks of not being able to redecorate etc). Mostly we love not having worries about repairs and such.

    Ok, maybe that wasn't the most considerate thing to say after your massive cost, sorry!

    Yes I have seen the Harry Potter trailer... WOW! Have you seen this Star Wars advert for Currys or is it just a UK store/advert? Just thought you might enjoy it... Tim and I love it so much! He recently introduced me to Star Wars Lego on the XBox and I never played console games as a kid so am quite useless, but I loved playing R2D2 when given the chance!!

    Hope you have a great Halloween, I'm sure you will. The Zombie Thriller dance sounds amazing and I cannot wait to see pictures of Henry all dressed up. Tim and I came home today and our neighbour opened her door (our front doors are opposite each other, down a passageway) and she had an "It" clown mask on and screamed at us haha, the fun has started!!

  3. i love bullets...
    the zombie thing? AWESOME!
    Hope Henry shared his candy with you!

  4. Im so excited about Harry Potter!!!

  5. I loved " The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society". Have you read "Room"? Especially with your little one, I think you would find it a very powerful read.
