Not Living up to its Potential...


I've been a terrible blogger lately...  I've had lots of good ideas for blogs, but that's just the problem: they haven't made it past the idea stage.  It's a shame really.  I could have an INCREDIBLE blog--one of the best out there.  I'm just not dedicated enough.  I know a few people who are really dedicated.  SO dedicated, in fact, that they not only have one blog, or two blogs, but THREE!  Yeah, I could never be like that...  This one, scanty, sad, little blog that I have is hardly surviving.

So here I am, typing away, trying to redeem myself, even though I know that I'll never be as good as some.  Some who get what seems like millions of comments on each post.  But then again, other blogs are deserving, consistent, and thoroughly entertaining.

The other day I was at the gym and I came up with one of the most entertaining posts ever in my mind!  I thought about telling you guys about how my arm muscles are disintegrating, about an incredibly uncomfortable encounter {or rather lack thereof--it was mainly him staring and my doing everything in my power to avoid his gaze} with a decrepit, middle-aged man, and about how I could totally have the body of a supermodel if I loved exercising as much as i loved stretching.

I could tell you about the other night when I dreamt that I ran a 5K  with my shoe laces untied, carrying a 30 pound inner-tube around my middle, with Michael Scott as my running partner {and my miraculous finishing time of 11 minutes...} 

I went to the dentist today and got two fillings without getting a shot and getting my mouth numb.  I could tell you about that little experience.

I could tell you about the time my incredible brother Brad took bridal pictures of me up in Heber, AZ and we had about 25 people honk at us.

{A picture is worth a thousand words, eh?}

I could tell you about going on the family computer and taking copying some of Brad's pictures so I could have them on my computer, and how he called then "contraband pictures", and how that's probably the first thing he though when he saw the above picture!

I could tell you about all the incredibly funny conversations Tanner and I have on the phone.

We got our house sprayed this morning.  We have been having problems with ants.  Many of then have decided to take refuge on my window sill and are climbing up my wall to reach this safe-haven , much to my absolute disgust and horror. I could tell you about that.

I could tell you about how I am SO INCREDIBLY ADDICTED to So You Think You Can Dance it's ridiculous and I've watched this clip on youtube probably 50 times...

So many things happen in my life.  I have impeccable storytelling skills, wicked writing wit, and a sensational vocabulary.  My poor blog...  It could be so amazing...

yes. of course i clicked on "this clip" and watched mark blow my mind three more times!

i've decided this is what blogs for us less dedicated bloggers should be about. just little teasers that peak the interest and therefore allow you to tell them when you see said blogger in person. because i'm pretty sure i want to know about ALL of these happenings now!

You were right, the first thing I thought was "contraband Pictures!"

Gives me goosebumps every time.

And thanks for all the nice things you said, too.

ALSO, I can't WAIT to see the brad pictures. and hear about the wretched ants. And I laughed out loud when you wrote about Michael Scott and an inner tube.

And did I tell you we bought a Wii?

And some of us readers probably won't ever find ourselve asking you for more than those teasers, leaving us uneducated and lacking. However, alliteration is part of your wickedly witty writting, so that's a plus.
