Sheer Blogger Genius . . .

Occurs for me in the middle of the night. I'm awakened by a painful kick to my bladder, as the little girl in-utero politely requests more room. I drag my sleepy body out of bed and head for the bathroom. As I lay back down to drift off to the bliss of dreamland, I am excessively thanked for the new room with acrobatic adventures by the afore mentioned, little girl in-utero. Now, I'm grateful that she has not yet reached the pinnacle of her strength, when she will surely awaken me from a dead sleep with her karate moves. But her active somersaults and jumping jacks have just enough power to prevent me from slipping into the desired bliss of dreamland.

So instead, as I encourage the madness in my belly by playfully pushing back, to which she responds with more kicking and pushing; my mind wanders to blogging and my next fabulous post. The problem is that generally speaking I conjure up the perfect words and most hilarious funny only to give in to the blissful dreamland. There my blogging posts become my dreams and fairyland, only to be forgotten in the fog of the alarm clock and the morning. It is bittersweet, as I remember that I had such a perfect idea that led to such a wonderful dream and now it is lost! Even if I can remember the meat of the post, gone are the fabulous side dishes of perfect words and the dessert of the most hilarious funny!

Well last night I said, "Enough is enough! Self, get out of bed and write this one down! It is perfection!" And so I did! Now I'm sure this is where you think I add in that perfect post, but alas all you shall get is a link. Because you see, Robert is back in the hospital fighting leukemia again, with Ashley at his side and Karalee and I are going to blog on their behalf. So the perfect post I conjured up at 1:00 a.m. last night wasn't even for my blog, but if you would like to read it you may go here.

And please visit their blog again, often, because we are beginning fundraising efforts very soon as Robert's first round with leukemia nearly wiped out his insurance policy. And of course we always request prayers! Besides, if you are lucky you just might score some more sheer blogging genius from the middle of the night!

I love your sense of humor - you always crack me up! I can definitely see where your kids get theirs from!
Thanks for sharing the information about Robert. I had a chance to talk to Linda at church on Sunday and she is hanging in there.

Our babies are so similar! I lay awake for at least an hour in the middle of the night because of summersaults adn kicks- I wouldn't trade any of it- I love it!
By the way the word verification is prego- how funny is that!?
