A post about a post

So, when I was thinking last night, which my English teacher sister says is called pre-write (all writers pre-write, am I really considered a writer though?) I couldn't decide what to post about.

I was thinking about doing an opinion post about all the things I have opinions about, like American Idol and how they should just quit the show after Simon leaves because, let's face it, it's going to fail miserably anyway.

I thought about doing a hair-cut post. We all got hair-cuts yesterday, not Meg of course, and Adeline looks a bit like Scout from To Kill A Mocking Bird.

Or about how I'm pregnant. Just kidding. Some of you will be more amused by that than others.

The thought about doing a list about my favorite things crossed my mind. Creamy Poppyseed Dressing from Kraft. We've been having a lot of salad lately thanks to that little gem.

I thought about doing a give-away post. Wouldn't that be fun! I have a couple of quilts over here looking for a good home. Neither of them are COMPLETELY finished as it were, but they're almost done.

I could post about this book I just finished reading - Shiver. It was really good. There's four hours of my life well spent.

I thought about talking about ONE of my favorite books, The Count Of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. I'm pretty sure Alex is the exception to the Writers-Are-Never-Hunks rule. And by the way, one of the worst books-turned-into-movies E.V.E.R.

I was also thinking about posting a picture about the other plant in my house that is thriving, thank you very much.

I thought about doing a post about sisters, and how someday I would have to tell Meg, that in fact she DID have sisters, and that would lead into a whole discussion about gypsies.....

Or talking about this really neat bag/purse that I made from a pattern, and I didn't cry once and I only had to call my mom twice.

Or a shout-out post. Like a big shout-out to the officer who didn't give me a ticket even though my tags on my van were three months old. And a big shout-out to Meg who was crying at the time which I'm sure totally aided my crazy-lady-driving-a-dirty-mini-van-with-three-kids-in-the-back-and-the-baby-wearing-a-make-shift-burp-cloth-diaper cause.

I'll give it some more thought and come up with something fabulous for Monday.



  1. I just wanted to say that the sacred nature of procreation and bring life into this wonderful world should never, ever be joked about. Faking a pregnancy, whether in real life or on Glee, can lead to hurt feeling and misunderstanding and false expectations. I would stongly encourage the writer of this blog to be more prudent in discussing such matters and always be more mindful of her husband's feeling and concerns.

    While we are on the subject of the writers husband, I would also encourage her to provide her hard working husband more foot massages and back rubs. Tax season is such a busy and difficult time of year.

  2. Oh, Bryce, you are one lucky man! I don't think you'll be getting those foot massages and back rubs, I know Katie :)
    So I have a proposition for you. Why don't I give you my login for my blog and you can update it on a regular basis with some amazing humor and thought and then I can read it and be entertained! Seriously, you keep me entertained with this blog!

  3. I just picked myself off the floor from your pranking pregnant gag! Revenge my friend is going to be awesome. You didn't like the Count of Monte Cristo? I loved it. Haven't read the book. But I am getting a pin-up of Alex.

  4. Don't know what Alexandre Dumas looks like but I like the book too. The movie was good, it was just a different story. And by the way, thanks for this blog. I am surrounded by 7th graders and toddlers all day. Higher level thinking skills are so refreshing.


You're a valued reader, thanks for your comments, they help keep me sane....
