So…since I’ve been so slack on posting lately, I decided it was time to do a little something about it.  I have posts that I’ve written and not published.  I have posts swirling in my head.  I have posts that I’ve written in a notebook when I’m not near a computer.  I really love to blog(and read other blogs), so to encourage myself to actually post I’ve joined a little thing called NaBloPoMo Network(which stands for National Blog Posting Month).  Each month a theme is chosen, and bloggers commit to post daily about that topic.  This month, however, there is no topic.  It’s NaBloPoMo‘s 3rd anniversary, and they just want people to write…every day for 30 days.  So I’ve joined the ranks of the thousands of crazy bloggers trying to do just that…blog every day for the entire month of Nov. 

But see, the thing is not so long ago I decided I was on the computer too much.  So when we moved, I stratigically put the computer UPstairs.  Meaning that I have to actually make an extra effort to get to the computer.  I’ve contemplated getting a laptop(I lurve Marshall’s), but I keep putting it off because I’m afraid I’ll end up on it all the time, everywhere.  Now seriously, do you really want me to blog whilst sitting on the potty?  I think it’s best for all of us if I keep away from the laptop for right now!  🙂

BUT…lately I’ve been having a little teeny problem with my blood pressure.  I expected it, really, because I had high blood pressure with my other pregnancies.  But never this early.  I’m now sentenced…um…obligated…er…happily going to visting my friendly neighborhood OB twice a week, and I’m supposed to pee in a bucket for 24 straight hours on Sunday.  Doesn’t that sound like fun??  So…when if I get put on bedrest, I may finally breakdown and beg for a laptop…because there’ll be very little that I’ll actually be able to do anyway, so why not waste time online.  Right?

Ok, so I’m rambling.  That’s a good start.  I apparently have lots to say.  Let’s hope it lasts for 30 days!  🙂  So wish me luck, pray that I can make it up the stairs for 30 straight days, come visit me everyday, and please(for pete’s sake!) leave me a comment or two!

No Responses to NaBloPo…what???

    Do you want me to come and read bedside stories to you when… er.. if you go on bedrest? Oh wait, just because your on bedrest doesn’t mean your brain doesn’t function? Well then, I’ll come and hold stimulating conversation with you. Better yet – I’ll put up your uppercase living which has come in! 🙂

    At least your bed is awesome…and you have me! Do we need to revisit the “great baby-name-book-debate” of 05?

    If you have to sit on a bucket for 24 hours, I think you at least need a laptop. I am sure that’s not how the peeing in a bucket thing works, but it doesn’t sound convenient. I had fun visiting you and family the other night! I hope your blood pressure goes down…think relaxing thoughts…and don’t watch any football games! Oh wait, I guess that is Marshall’s blood pressure. 🙂 ha ha! love ya!

    How are we going to keep up if you post every day? My schedule is busy enough that it will be a challange but I love reading your posts whenever I get the chance.
