Writer's Jam

Have you ever been driving along the interstate, minding your own business, clipping along at 5 (or so) mph over the speed limit? Then all of a sudden traffic slams to a screeching halt and you are sitting perfectly still in the sweltering heat.  You look around for constructions signs but there are none, that is when you realize that traffic is so backed up you haven't even gotten to the warning signs yet and that three lanes of traffic are now (and for the next three hours) attempting to funnel into one. And you also realize that you desperately need to pee.

This is the inner workings of my brain. My lack of blogging has not been due to lack of content,  it is quite the contrary. I have too much to write about. All these ideas are trying  to  squeeze themselves into my tiny brain. I am also an ostrich, when I get overwhelmed, I run outside and duck my head into the sandbox. Literally, sometimes five or six times a day. This blogging traffic jam in my head, only makes me think about how desperately I need to stop and pee.

So much has happened lately, I don't know what to write about first. I mean, I promised back in June to write about my garden, but I haven't been motivated to upload the pictures. Mostly because I have to do it upstairs in Everette's office, and it is 10, 000 degrees up there. But since I promised it, I don't feel like I can write about anything else until I do.
Our whole family (greene side) went on vacation.
I had my ten year high school reunion (Well, I didn't go-but the fact that it has been ten years since I graduated high school, has left a rather traumatic injury to my psyche).
We are dogsitting for Everette's parents again.

I have crazy crazy cute video of Jonathan singing in the tub, but that also requires me to go up into the fiery inferno.
And most of all I have to waste an entire post whining about not knowing what to post. And since we all know that people don't like to read really long blogs, I have to end this post having said nothing at all. On the bright side I might be going swimming today.
But I promise I will come back and write about something.

A short Quiz

Question:  What do you do when you have 30 mins to get ready fora funeral after working in the yard all morning and you realize that it's summer and the chacos you were wearing to mow the yard and weed the garden are the only pair of  black sandals you own?

Leave your guesses here and come back later for the answer!

You flip on the shower, toss in your chacos, grab an old nail brush and a bar of soap and get busy.
Then you try not to gag when you see the rivers of dirt pouring out of your chacos and splattering on the walls as you scrub with the brush.
When you are finished you toss them onto the bathmat. Then once you are showered, and dried, you wrap them in your towel and stand on them as you scrunch your hair.
Then you toss them in the dryer for five mins while you throw on some makeup and let them air dry on your feet.

So yes, I promised a post about the garden, and I promise it's coming. But we are full swing into Birthday Season. And I can't be bothered  with gardening.  And today is my own darling Everette's Birthday.
The thing about Everette's birthday is it almost always lands on Fourth of July Weekend so the festivities spread out.

So it's a weekend of partying!

Happy Birthday Honey!!!!!
