Inspire me

The time of year is approaching where it's easy to waste away hours in front of the computer. My posts have been severely lacking. I think I used to be interesting and/or amusing. Now I only post if I can manage to take a cute picture of my children. Yay. Thrilling. I've been enjoying Lani's posts but really don't think I could commit to answering some of those questions! Sooo, on a whim I'm leaving it up to my readers. Those of you who are left. What should I write about?

  • Bought myself a present today with my birthday gift cards. Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything. I'm psyched. I'll dig up some spare time somewhere in the next 10 years to read it.
  • Avrie is currently throwing a massive fit of rage because I won't buy her an Ariel beauty salon setup.
  • Nolan refused to participate in Wacky Wednesday at school today. Anyone else have kids who think such things are ridiculous? I had to practically pay him to wear his pajamas to school last year.
  • Cole will randomly throw out full sentences. Other than "owwie, ow and no" he has no language. Aside from those full sentences. Did I mention those? "I don't know. I'll be right back." But, he's pretty darned stinkin' cute. He manages to get his way 99% of the time because I'm a sucker. Sure, I'll spank his behind if he's being naughty...but it's followed by kisses. Hmmm...not sure it's so effective that way.
See how much I need inspiration? Zzzzz. I even put myself to sleep.

I personally feel that you should update with whatever you want. i do that and I'm surprised at how many comments i get on a post i don't think is all that exciting.
i enjoy reading/seeing your kids but i enjoy reading about you too. especially your super buying deals from that second hand store :)

Post a little bit of EVERYTHING!! :) It's the everyday, ordinary stuff that I like to hear about. People (me, included!) just want to hear about LIFE and what that is for you. :)

Oh Posts! I love your posts. Write more about your food! Why we should eat well. What is xanthum gum that is in everything I want to buy and just reading it makes me think it's bad but it might not be becuase I am not as well read/taught/self-learned as you are. And that hair, incredible.
