All over the map

I'm looking at a blank page wondering why I can't think of anything to say. What is wrong with my thinking? Where did the inspiration go? I need to email someone I don't even know. I need to clean the house. I need to enjoy the quiet of two sleeping children. I need to bake 2 cakes. Instead I'm sitting here trying to write a blog post. I could say some really awesome things right now, I'm just sometimes not willing to be very revealing in a blog. I'm going to call a friend instead. Hold on...called the friend, had a good conversation, and the head space I'm in right now is this, peeps: Life isn't just a tidy little box. Open your eyes and be deliberate. You can put the award on your chest, walk tall, and wear it proudly for the world to see, and everyone will congratulate you, but I, for one am not inspired by that. I think you'll have a rude awakening when the lid doesn't fit and all of the contents come pouring out. Look beyond your peripheral vision. The whole entire world is even bigger than that.
-XOXO,

What's better than cake, really?

If I had a blog I would be stuck and wouldn't know what to write about after my second or third post, but I am glad that you always have something to say :)

I totally don't get the end of the post. Sorry, I just didn't understand it all... maybe it was meant for a specific person to translate?

Verlana, to quote a song (But i dont' remember what it's called or who it's by) "...if you don't know what I'm talking about, that's okay, because I'm working it out." :-)

I am amazed that you have 4 children and STILL have room in your brain for such deep profound well thought out thoughts, Geez. You and your blog are an inspiration to me! ;-)
