Lazy Blogger

I know, I know. I haven't been posting much lately. I pull out my computer, place my fingers gingerly over the keys, and wait for inspiration, but none comes. I try to think of something witty. I try to think of something serious. I try to think of something spiritual. But for all the somethings I try to come up with, all I get is nothing. A total blank.

"Why don't you just post pictures?" you ask. It's a valid question, for sure. (It's not like the grandparents mind a lack of words as long as there's an image of their grandbabies on the screen.) I find uploading pictures to be an annoying task. My camera takes good pictures, which equates to large files. I either have to take time to make compressed copies of each picture I wish to post, or I have to leave the computer open while they upload. Either option is very time consuming, and the latter leaves my laptop open to an attack from Ella, who has already brought about the demise of four keys. We're in the process of getting a new keyboard. All of this is in addition to the fact that I have to remember to take pictures when the very rare opportunities arise. Anything that depends on my memory is not very dependable at all.

Thus I have been reduced to semi-weekly posting. My own laziness is at fault, of course. It's not impossible, just challenging (and I mean that in its weakest form). So I hereby vow (yes, vow) to write at least two posts a week. It's a pitiful beginning, but a beginning none the less. I will also do my best to post pictures regularly. I'm fully aware that the beauty of my children is the most compelling aspect of this blog. (What can I say? They are pretty adorable!)

Until next time, enjoy more consistent bloggers.

That is not exactly true-I love reading your words also and everybody here in Tallassee talk more about your words than your pictures!!! Even though they don't leave comments, people are reading your blog-not just grandparents. But I don't think you are lazy-you are a wife, a mom of 2 preschoolers and the first lady of your church-that is not lazy! I love you very much!!!

Wow, mom. You take that way more seriously than was intended. It was intended to be a light-hearted post. Still, I sppreciate your comments. I love you!

Download Windows Live Writer, makes pictures up load FAST. I personally love pictures of two of the cutest kids on the planet.

I love your writings because you are all of these things...witty...inspiring...funny...and loving.

I am having the same problem with thinking about what to write and know that my mom only cares about seeing the girls but how many pictures can I take in the doorway of our home??? ha ha

You really DO have adorable girls...you know we love them both! I miss baby Ella coming to my door to visit and when I would open my door she would make a mad dash inside as if she was running from something...lol
