Please Unblock Me!

I have had terrible, horrible, no good, very bad blogger’s block lately. I used to have so much to say and lately, nothing. Sometimes I think of things and then as I write them, I decide they suck and I give up. Or I feel too tired to bother. Or there are things I want to say, but can’t, since I am afraid of being too public. I’m dying here. Someone, anyone, please tell me what to write about. Give me a topic, make a request, ask me a question – I don’t care how silly, or deep, or personal it is. I need some inspiration!!


So – on to the boring, I can’t think of anything to write about stuff. We visited the boy at camp on Wednesday night. Remember his neat, organized tent on Sunday? Yeah:


But despite the craptacular tent, he was having a great time. He is definitely in his element at camp. When we first started him with the camping, we weren’t sure. Because this is a boy who loves TV and video games and laying around like a lazy ass. But it turns out he loves camping, too. Mr b and I used to camp a lot before we had kids and we keep saying that we want to start again, but something always seems to get in the way. We’re going to have to finally do it. Of course, I would never camp in those scout tents – oh hell no. I like the sealed-up zip tents with floors and netting. The kind that you zip open as little as possible, jump out and zip up again, in order to keep the spiders from getting in. Those open things with no floors? Forget it. Spiders. Of course, my dad bought a small camper, so that may be the way to go for us.

Anyway – the boy. He kayaked and loved it (yay, because I love to and we can go together), and hiked and worked on merit badges and fished a lot:



The camp is HUGE and quite nice.



We picked him up on Saturday and he was dirty and tired and happy and lugging a ton of dirty, muddy clothes which I now have to wash. But it was a beautiful day.







The rest of the weekend involved me working like a dog to get things organized in order to get some of the renovations finished. I moved furniture and moved the bed to the back bedroom (they are connected and we are using them both as our bedroom – one for sleeping and one for clothes and dressing. And moving the very heavy dressers and bed that have been in the same spots for many year? Was gross. But I found a lot of stuff that I thought I had lost, so there’s that.

I lose everything. That's right - I'm a loser. In fact, right now, I can’t find my camera battery charger. I used it before vacation and I thought I took it with me, but it’s now missing. I searched the hotel before we left and don’t think anything was left in the room, so it must be here somewhere. I go through this with every charger I have, extension cords, my extra contacts, medicine, sunglasses, the phone, books, clothes, shoes, and things I just bought the day before. But this charger thing is really pissing me off, because I need to take photos at all times.

So I’m going to look for the charger and in the meantime, help a girl out, will ya? Help me find something to write about.

The last photo of The Girl KILLS ME. She is America's Next Top Model. Just sign her up now, because she will beat the crap out of all of those other drama-loving chicks. She's cuter, too.

I can be of no help in unblocking a block. It is a small miracle each and every time I manage to finish a post and I'm not even lying. I write 30 in my head throughout a day, but nothing wants to come out when it's time to write. Good luck.

Oh my gosh...The Girl is so cute! Look at her posing! How sweet.

Looks like The Boy had a great time.

Hmmm unblockage...hmm. I've been having trouble, too. How about you tell us all about highschool. That's always a fun topic ;)

I don't have any ideas for what to write about...I was in the boat up until a couple of weeks ago and then BAM! Something happened and I've been able to blog again. Wish I could help though, cuz it sucks when you want to blog and just can't!

And that little girl is FREAKIN' ADORABLE.

The tent? Kinda scary. ;)

Oh, that Girl is going to be (going to be?) trouble! Good luck. She is cute & she looks like she knows how to work it.

Okay, is this too personal/public: children planned, unplanned, surprised, or just happened in the course of what happens?

Yeah, I'm nebby.

How about how you met Mr. B -- unless I've missed that one.

okay, go!

ciao,
red pen mama

Maybe it is the summer as I have absolutly NO idea what to write about either. I never wrote everyday, but lately I was thinking I was the most boring person on earth. Thanks for making me feel like I am not the only one who has writers block.

Your daughter is just too cute! I miss my girls being that young and cute, even my boy was cute when he was young.

Good Luck On The Writing Thing.

Days like These! said...

Gina, these are awesome photos, and the kids are great.

BTW, all you camera-toting Burgh Moms SUCK because you're making me and my lame photos look bad. Not that I needed much help on that front, but still.
