Drivel Alert!

Alright. I admit it. I've been AWOL. Go ahead and put your hands on your hips and shriek "And just WHERE have you been young lady!?!"

(Which totally reminds me of the time that I went to Destin with the youth group, and Mom told me to call her AS SOON as we arrived, and I had every intention of doing that...right after I saw put my toes in the ocean for a minute few hours. Everyone else called their moms at 3pm when we arrived...mine called me at 9pm. Not happy. Oops).

Anywho, I have a whole list of excuses worked up, which I'm just going to put right here, and you can pick your favorite:

1. I've had a horrible case of writer's block lately, and rather than antagonize you with lousy pointless drivel, I've just been hiding.
2. It was a holiday weekend, and Tony and I went down to Atlanta to catch a Braves game and go to Six Flags, and I don't have a laptop, so I couldn't write.
3. Every time I sit down at the home desktop computer, the kittens, under the guise of trying to scale me like Mount Everest, attack me with their needle-like claws.
4. I checked out 13 totally mindless summer must-read books from the library. Need I say more?

But the point is, I'm back. And I'll try to stay back. Even though everything is totally boring right now, so some of it might be drivel.

Like today for instance.

Part of the problem is that I just can't see how you would be interested in what the kittens are doing (learning to use the cat door), or how many times we rode the Ninja roller coaster at Six Flags (twice), or what I'm doing in the evenings now that school is over (Guitar Hero). I mean, I could tell you that I'm doing all of that stuff, but it wouldn't make for very good entertainment. But something is better than nothing, right? And if nothing else, you'll know I'm still alive. And driveling.

Exactly why I haven't blogged in a long time. I just don't have any interesting ways to say what I've been occupying my time with. Ah, well. Good to know you are alive and driveling.

Hey Quirky - I have a question for you since you are bored. I am going to been in TN in mid-September for a wedding in Cookville. It will be my husband and I, along with our 3 year old son (ring bearer). We are thinking of taking a few extra days and making a little vacation. Any ideas of what we can/should do? Thanks!
