I don't know how to avoid the blogging rut. It happens. And the problem is that I've been too absorbed in reading everyone else's blogs to come up with my own creative things to write about. Sorry. Over the weekend I discovered a new sewing blog (MADE) and I wonder how I've lived so long without knowing about it. Why didn't anyone tell me????? And I see that today she's posted a tutorial on making a men's shirt into a little kid's shirt! So all of you who asked how to do it - there you go. Awesome. And I want a serger now.
And since I don't have anything fascinating to say, I'm going to copy someone else's idea from another blog that I recently discovered (thanks Mary - why haven't you told me about them yet???? why is everyone keeping their stalk-er-ific blogs a secret????). It's supposed to be a Christmas thing, but I think it's appropriate year round. Here's what I believe:
I believe that my husband works harder at being a good person than anyone I know.
I believe that I have many areas in my life where I could use some serious improvement.
I believe that I'm getting better.
I believe that God is kind.
I believe that if I don't eat after the boys go to bed, my body will get hungry and eat the fat I have hanging around my middle. And thighs. And everywhere else.
I believe that there are a few of my husband's male students lurking on this blog which makes the previous comment a little awkward.
I believe that if I read my scriptures and pray everyday I will be able to better control my temper.
I believe in doing my part to reduce, reuse and recycle.
I believe that a little dirt/dust never hurt anyone.
I believe in forever families.
I believe that the ability and desire to create is an attribute of and gift from our Eternal Father.
I believe that Jack Bauer makes my heart race as though I'm running a marathon.
I believe in natural childbirth.
I believe that when you comment on my blog, it totally makes my day.
I believe that this song is one of the happiest songs ever written.
I believe that Zach and I could spend all night watching music videos from the 90's on youtube.
I believe that is it time I go spend some time with that good, handsome man of mine.
Later ladies (and teenage boys....)
