at least i'm not the only one

i am having a HARD time being motivated, or being inspired to write!!!  usually i have thoughts, inspirations, or just ideas fairly frequently throughout each day.  not so much the case lately! 
also, i'm having a REALLY HARD time adjusting to daylight savings time...  sunday wasn't hard, but sunday mornings are purposefully more laid back for our family.  i accidentally took a nap in the afternoon while we were "watching" a family movie.  that night i stayed up until 2am!!!  (and just so ya know... i'm a 9:30-10:30 go-to-sleep gal.)  anyway, needlesstosay i had to be dragged out of bed yesterday morning.  so last night i made sure and went to sleep in a timely manner.  however, this morning i still slept through one of my alarms.  (i have three.)  i have enough energy to get me through the day... i just need the gumption to get up. 
so, let that be a prayer request from me.  i need to get up on time and get the day ready for the family!
maybe the two of these subjects correlate, but i don't think so.  my blog dry-spell has been longer than these last few days i think. 
i'll dig into His word and see if that helps. 

on another 'nother note:  on saturday we had glorious beautiful weather.  a friend invited us to the park with them to play some ball.  it was just what we needed!!!  about halfway through, i noticed i was short a kid, so we spent the next 10 minutes searching for boo.  that was not a good heart therapy for me.  i cannot believe how busy that park was.  i mean it was the second weekend in march for cryin' in a bucket!  both parking lots were full and there were cars lined down the streets.  it was redunkulous!  also, it was scary to loose a child!!!  i kept telling them to stick close because they're so cute i was sure someone would 'nap them.  so then when we lost one (and one of the cutest) i was sick...  anyway, we did find her.  she was just playing on the slide with a gazillion-million other little ones...

we got a hooked on writing box of funness to work on with jones.  he's loving it and in fact he's bugging me that it's time to start school for him so i'd better go.

inspiration will come, don't fret.  i'll be back with many-a-posts.  soon my dear interested blog-friend.  soon.

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
