Burnout

In the life of every blogger, it must happen.  You just get a little sick of blogging.  You run out of stuff to say.  You just don't feel like it.  You just get blogger burnout.  Yep, that's me lately.  Hello, my name is Megan and I am experiencing blog burnout.  Grrr.  Must. Find. My. Mojo.  (so I can stop blogging in bullet points!)

*We are still all going through the allergy junk.  Noah's has progressed to this gross croupy cough.  Miles' congestion settled in his ears and he now has a double ear infection...again.  This is the 4th ear infection in the 6 months since he's been home.  I'm no genius, but I see tubes in that boy's future.  It could also explain why he has been the most whiny, annoying child on the planet for the last few days and why he flunked his hearing exam today.  Hello, round 645 of antibiotics.  Good thing we have Walgreen's stock.

*Noah started his first day of preschool yesterday.  Yee Haw!  He was so pumped to get to see his friends!   Isn't he cute?  I could just sop him up with a biscuit!


*I got "recognized" today in public for the first time from my blog.  I'll tell ya'- I felt like a total rock star.  A woman we'll call J. came down the hallway at the audiologist's office saying, "Wait! Wait! I read your blog!" (J- here's your shout out!) She introduced herself and met the kids and I left feeling like Kim Kardashian or Britney Spears or something. 

*My brave and lovely neighbors have offered to let the big kids come over and camp at their house tonight.  They are setting up a tent inside the house and eating lots of junk food.   Without the kids here on a Friday night, I am anticipating going to bed at 8:30.  Yeah- I know.  I'm a rebel!  

*One of my husband's clients gave him a zillion apples the other day which we turned into all kinds of pies.  Here is Kamron sitting at the table peeling all those apples.  Have you ever read the book, The Five Love Languages ? I am 100% "acts of service".  Forget giving me diamonds or flowers- if you run the vacuum for me or peel my apples, I would gladly welcome the troops home for Christmas in a heart beat.  That is why this picture just thrills my soul.                                      


* I need a weight loss intervention.  Even my sweatpants are getting a little tight and I am not yet desperate enough to put Spanx on under my sweats.  It's just not gonna happen.

* Sadie is starting Girl Scouts in the morning.  I am so excited for her.  She has HORRIBLE social anxiety that she has been working on in therapy.  So when she came home begging to do Girl Scouts, I did a little happy dance.

* I know that it is Friday and long ago I started a Friday "Adoption Corner" series.  The burnout has caused it to fall by the wayside.  Damn you, burnout.  One of these days I will resurrect the series.

* Last but not least, my friend Jamey (who I actually got to meet once in real life!) is hosting a raffle.  The proceeds from the raffle will go to a family who is having some trouble raising the funds to complete their Ethiopian adoption of two older children.  The grand prize is a MamaEnat handmade blanket.  The raffle says that it is for an Ethiopian flag blanket, but Jamey is soooo awesome that she said if any of my Congo mamas win it, she will make you a Congolese flag instead.  Or China,  or wherever else in the world you want your flag blankie to be from.  How cool is that?  I get so in awe of people who can make and create things.  So head on over to Jamey's blog and buy a raffle ticket.  They are only 5 bucks each and you will be helping to unite a family.  Go get ya' some.
