I just want to waste a few minutes of your time.

This will be the last post for a few days. I plan to be back in business by Tuesday, because what else am I going to do while I am recovering from surgery? So, I am expecting all of you to write some brilliant and witty posts for my entertainment. Don't let me down internet friends!

I always think of great blog posts in the middle of the night or while I am grocery shopping or even while I am changing a poopy diaper. I will run to the computer and type a sentence or two, so I won't forget my idea. Except, I always forget my idea. As a result, I have about 15 posts that are in the "draft" stage. Most of them are strange little tidbits, and I have no idea where I was going with the post. Here are a few examples...

Post # 1 titled "Boys"
My baby boy likes to grab his penis and pull it REALLY hard. Honestly, I think he is trying to stretch it all the way to his mouth. This greatly disturbs my husband.

I guess that was the whole story? Maybe I decided that it just wasn't long enough to post.

Post # 2 titled "NO NO NO NO NO"
Porgie says the word "no" with such strength and gusto, that

I can only imagine where this was headed. I envision the words "I want to slap her" finishing that sentence.

Post # 3 titled "Motherhood"
Since having my babies, I have learned many things about being a mother. Some of the lessons have been wonderful, while others have been very unpleasant.

I actually remember this one. I was going to do a HILARIOUS post on the funny things I have learned from motherhood. But, I just couldn't think of anything funny to say. I am a dork.

Post # 4 titled "Denial"
Izzy is already 3 months old! Can you believe that? He is turning into one of those adorable bouncing babies. It is a beautiful thing, my friends. He laughs and smiles and makes my life complete. As I have watched his personality

I love how I just stopped writing this post mid-sentence and never went back to finish it. I guess I decided that Izzy wasn't that neat after all.

Peace out homies!

You rest up. I'll think of something BRILLIANT to amuse you and make you smile, but I don't want to make you laugh, because that might hurt.

I find it funny that you described post #1 as not "long enough" to post, considering the topic of it. :)

Amanda said...

Thinking of you on Monday ~ you'll be just fine.
Will do my best to bring a smile to your face. You might be too tender to LOL !

amanda said...

WHAT A BRILLIANT post! I might copy it one of these days!

Eva said...

I do that, too! And I have no idea where I was going with it sometimes. I usually just write a title. I have been trying to do little intro paragraph to remind myself nowadays. Sometimes even if I know where I was going with it, it doesn't seem that interesting later.

BEST WISHES WITH YOUR SURGERY. I WISH YOU WELL!

Rachel said...

Please take it easy while you are home. I hope you feel better and get your gall bladder happy again, HUGS

Lindz said...

That happens to me all of the time and it makes me so mad.

Good luck with your surgery, here's to a much more pain-free, healthier lifestyle! You will do great.

Mama Kalila said...

I probably should do that.. even if it got lost in the middle it'd be better than now. I'll get an idea in my head, work it out there, & then when I finally get to the computer... Ha - it's gone!

I've got a big post planned for Sunday or Monday (one I'm not likely to forget lol) so I'll have something for ya too lol.

Mommy Mechanics said...

Too funny, I have a bunch of tidbit drafts too. Hope you have a quick and easy recovery.

Dana said...

try to get some rest and relax after your surgery.. Don't do too much.. Take care of yourself..

Claudia said...

I think of my posts at night too. And in the middle of the night they are just brilliant, but come morning, not so much. Congrats on all the awards, love, you deserve it. And PS - if I had a penis, I'd give it a good yank now and again too. Just sayin'.

Hope everything goes well,

amanda said...

Dana said...

I hope all is well.. I've been thinking of you!

Awake said...

Rest well friend.

Mama Kalila said...

I just realized I didn't say it last time (silly me) - Hope the surgery went well. Get some rest (ha - sorry, I know how rough that one can be) & take care of yourself. Lookig forward to reading new blogs when you get back to it!

Not So Perfect said...

Thinking of you, hoping the surgery went well. Rest up.

Marni Tiani Self said...

I hope your recovery is going well and you are feeling amazing. :)

Anth said...

I laughed out loud at post #2.

I always think of brilliant posts in the middle of the night too. Then IF I remember them in the morning (big if), I can never word them as cleverly. Or they just don't seem as funny in the cold light of morning.
