At least I'm not the only one.

It seems that I am having problem posting with any sort of regularity of late. It's not because I don't have anything to share. I do. It's just that it seems like I'm extra busy with work and life and extra tired, and late at night, when I normally blog (like now), I'm just too wiped to do so.

But you know what? Most of the bloggers whose work I most often read are also having their own dry spells, going days--if not weeks--between posts.

What's wrong with us? How do we get our mojo back? Sigh...

I will let you in on one little piece of news: BH and I have been beginning to talk about our honeymoon destination. We decided to each write down 10 places we wanted to go and then share our lists and go from there. The only guideline was that the destinations would have to be somewhere that could be enjoyed in just a week's time (since that'll be about as much time as we can both spend away from our jobs and the Geej). And also, the list could include places you'd been before but wanted to return to. So last night we decided to share our lists, and we managed to narrow our potential destinations down from 20 to just 10. Here they are (in no particular order)--



  • Texarkana, TX/AR (It's twice as nice!)

  • The Poconos (so classy)

  • Atlantic City, NJ

  • Detroit, MI

  • Gary, IN

  • Orlando, FL (All Disney, all the time.)

  • Provo, UT

  • Texas City, TX (Refinery tour!)

  • Fargo, ND (but only if we can postpone our trip until January '09)

  • Juarez, Mexico

  • Branson, MO

Don't those places sound romantical?

Oh, and I have to share 3 of my favorite Geej-isms with you. Lip balm is called "lipchap," heart beats are "heartbeeps" and geckos are "eggos." She also told me tonight that she liked the buttons on my pajamas so much, she wanted "to just eat them up!" And I caught her sticking her toes in her mouth while she was in the bathtub tonight. She is just too weird for words.

Okay, off to bed. More soon. I promise.

So, are you calling me out or what? You betta bring it.

And please tell me you're kidding about Texas City. If not, I've got a gas mask you can borrow.

That's how Jesse and I started plans for our wedding -we each wrote down 10 adjectives and then compared notes - it worked very well!

I can't wait to hear where you decide to go...

Mike and I made a honeymoon list too... we're Hawaii-bound, although we're getting married a year after y'all.

My daughter used to call lobsters "crabsters." And when she first started speaking, she could make things plural, but if the word had an "s" in the middle, she couldn't pronounce it- e.g. "Mommy, whores, whores!" (horses). Enjoy all the Geej-isms and write them down so you can embarass her when she starts dating.
