blogger's block and the pitfalls thereof

so, just in case you haven't noticed by checking and re-checking if i have posted anything since being back from the ends of the earth...or the internet rather, i'm suffering from a mild case of blogger's block. somehow, there are those of you who manage to keep up several sites while also managing to scrapbook, can, teach your kids sign language, and run a mile in less than 4 minutes. okay, maybe not the last one so much, but my point is that i'm severely lacking in material right now and, therfore, apparently can't even manage one blog entry. not that i don't have anything to work with because there was my trip to see my family and the gray girls, easter, my half marathon "training," my camapaign to convince my husband that we need to relocate (not cities, just place of residence...although a real change of scenery would be nice--anybody have a couple of rooms that need tenants...) wow, i guess i'm really not hurting for things to discuss, i was just fresh out of witty banter to deliver it with. good news for you, by writing this blog, the banter is obviously back and with a vengence! well, its back anyway for a temporary stint. so, on with my point amongst the rambling. apparently i've been "tagged." i have to admit that i had no idea there was such a thing past the age of 10 in my backyard (okay, so i played in college too, who didn't?) but i guess in the "you're not a true blogger until you get tagged world," the game is alive and well among kids and adults alike...well, at least larissa and her devastatingly creative self. so here goes, enjoy or just skip to the bottom and leave a comment making me think you read and thouroghly enjoyed it. i totally mispelled that word. don't tell my high school english teacher.
A- Attached or single: attached in the loosest sense of the word, i mean...very attached
B- Best Friend: i know i'm probably supposed to enter andy's name here, so i guess i will or did as the case may be...as for someone outside my nuclear family-i must admit that i'm not really sure. my mom is probably the only one that has really been the constant bff...is that sad or cool? i think she's pretty cool. good ol mombo
C-Cake or Pie: ooh, usually pie, but i've been having wierd cake cravings every once in awhile lately. i think they have something to do with richelle and siobhan's cake cookie concoctions...wow, how totally clever was that phrase? they are really good though
D- Day of Choice: i'd probably have to go with sundays because andy is home, well scratch that, he's not really home for most of the day depending on meetings and home teaching, but we do manage to get a good cheesy mormon flick and a nap in. plus, there is usually meat to be had for dinner :)
E- Essential Items: lets see, scrapbook stuff, quilting materials, dance outfits, oh wait, that is definitly someone else's list. i'd have to say-rebecca's toffee, sewing machine (this is recent, but oh so enjoyable), and a nice run outside. can't beat it
F- Favorite Color: red and the infamous pink-give me any shade, i love it and i'm not ashamed to say it
G- Gummi Bears or Worms: definitly bears...is there even a comparison?
H- Hometown: i guess it would have to be camas, wa, but i like to think it was someplace a lot cooler, like korea or germany (where i lived a total of 3 years or so during years that i can't even really remember)
I- Indulgence(s): baby gap and children's place...it really is a sickness i think
J- January or July: summer is for the birds. ha ha--whoo! i'm awesome. january is okay but it means that christmas is over. i'll take september
K-Kids: uno-you all know him as luke because, well, that's his name, duh
L-Life is incomplete without: i could go serious and say the gospel and my family, but to go with my gut, i have to say project runway :)
M- Marriage Date: if you're really my friends, you should know this. i'll give you three choices:
a. may 15, 2003
b. october 21, 2005
c. yesterday
N- Number of Siblings: 2 older brothers, one younger sister
O- Oranges or Apples: you can't make me choose! just kidding, i'll have one of each please
P- Phobias or Fears: i'm not a big fan of risky things because of my proness to accidents
Q- Quote(s): "what e'er thou art, act well thy part"
R- Reason To Smile: the prospect of moving! the family, andy's business being a success, and having everything i need is a bonus too :)
S- Season: spring and fall=sweater weather, gotta layer, the less skin the better
T- Tag Six: if you're on my list, consider yourself tagged
U- Unknown Fact About Me: i'm a closet scrapbooker...yeah, not really--
V- Veggies or Fruit: i'm running out of witty comments, i know you didn't think it could happen did you. fruit, i guess
W- Worst Habit: tv-it does too good of a job of sucking me in
X- X-Rays or Ultrasounds: really? what kind of a question is this?
Y- Your Favorite Food: didn't i already answer this, wow its all blurring together
Z: Zodiac: virgo

so that was really long. hope you're all still concious. thanks for playiing. i'll try to keep you posted more often...total pun intended

okay so i read most of it and got distracted...but its me. we know the limitations of my brain. but i did spy your comment about blondes and i have a question. why is it, or rather how is it that blondes have more fun? i'm always perplexed by that statement. as if there is more fun out there in the universe.

Do you like how I made my kid take care of the tagging for me? Well, it's his blog anyway. Love your blog, as always! Good luck training for that half-marathon! I wish I was there so I could run it with you!
