Taking the easy way out

I'm having a hard time writing something here. Part of it is the overload of things to say, yet not wanting to talk about any of it. Part of it is wanting Maddie's picture on the first page as long as possible, because I know it should be there. Part of it is just writers block I guess.

I'm going to take the easy way out and post random thoughts about my life right now. 29 of them in fact, because tomorrow (Monday) is my birthday. My 29th birthday. Ha, inventive, no? Ok, maybe I stole it from Kari at I left my heart at preschool. Either way, here it goes.

1. For some reason, it hasn't really registered that it is my birthday. I don't really care either way.
2. I changed my site to purple for Maddie. What do you think? I'm loving it.
3. I am heartbroken for Heather and Mike.
4. Hawaii is awesome. But I didn't really enjoy it that much. It had nothing to do with the Hawaii part.
5. I managed to read the Insta-Book Club book while in Hawaii.
6. I also read two others, one of which was Dooce's book, which I really thought was great.
7. I watched more TV and was on the computer way more than was planned while on my trip.
8. I did see dolphins though.
9. Harrison is a full on crawler. Which means, my sitting around on the computer days are numbered.
10. My best friend is going to start keeping him in the mornings for me. I have some things I want to accomplish before the girls are out for the summer, so this was the best plan.
11. Last week, for a birthday surprise dinner for me, my MIL made strawberry shortcake, with real shortcake. It might have been the best thing I've eating in my life.
12. I am not over the time change yet. I tried to stay on Denver time...but no go.
13. I am having a really hard time right now. In life and with this list.
14. I just played all of my letters in a game of Scrabble on Facebook. Is the first time that has ever happened.
15. I am going to have carrot cake for my birthday cake.
16. I wish I could have my MIL's strawberry shortcake tomorrow.
17. My couch has gotten really uncomfortable. It's about five years old, which might not be bad, except for the amount of abuse it has gotten in those five years. My kids? Not exactly gentle on furniture. We spent half the day looking at new furniture.
18. Holy crap this is a long list. Can I claim being 20?
19. Food Network, Cake Challenge is one of my families favorite shows right now. Close up there is Ace of Cakes, Unwrapped and Chopped.
20. I truly want a cake right this second.
21. I got my first pedicure of the spring today. Spring is a word I am using lightly since it was snowing yesterday.
22. In the last week and a half, I have "met" some amazing bloggers.
23. I like pineapple.
24. My kids had a blast with their two sets of grandparents.
25. They did more in a week ad a half than I wold have thought possible.
26. I missed them every second of the time I was away. But I'm thrilled that they had fun.
27. I finally got through my Google Reader....but I didn't comment on 89% if it. I did read though, I swear.
28. 28 has been an interesting year. There was good, bad and the down right fugly. Harrison is the shining moment of my last year.
29. I am convinced this year is going to be great. Please let it be amazing. Please.

Love the purple. It looks great.

My family loves Cake Challenge! Food Netwok makes great family TV. It's something that we all really enjoy.

Happy, happy birthday. I hope it's a great year.

Kari said...

Congratulations on your list of 29, at least it wasn't 41...! ;-)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! This is going to be a good year - it has to be!

Kari said...

p.s. Love, love, love the purple. It's beautiful!

Noah told me that he likes Food Network better than cartoons, and that Chopped beats Mickey Mouse any day. I love my children.

29 is a fabulous year. Enjoy the last year of your 20s. Although so far, I'm not complaining about the 30s either. Well, except those lines that are appearing on my forehead. Those suck.

Happy birthday. Sending you cake thoughts.

Loved this! Also, you aren't 29, this is the fourth anniversary of your 25th birthday. That's all. ;-)

PS the blog design is adorable! Love the purple.

I absolutely love the cake challenge too! And chopped, but sometimes I feel like they are just giving crazy things just to be weird... Which makes me mad, cuz then none of it seems yummy! And Ace of Cakes- I love Duff!

Iron Chef, too... Can you tell I watch too much food network? ;)

Hope you have an amazing day, hon!

Maura said...

Happy birthday! How appropriate that like half your post was about cake, huh? :-)

Oh, but you HAD to go and mention pineapple, didn't you? You...!

Wishing you a wonderful year ahead. Oh and if you find a glorious couch will you share, I am in desperate need.

Newbie visiting from 'wheels on the bus.' A cake challenge is always worthwhile. Many happy returns.
