I've been bit.  Or is it bitten?  It's four o'clock in the morning and to be quite honest, my brain is not functioning enough to care too desperately.  I'm sorry if I've just scarred you forever.

However it has bit, bitten, bited me,  Blogger's Block has attacked with full force.  Characteristics of Blogger's Block at first glance look very similar to just plain old busyness or laziness, or even lack of creativity.  It's much more than that though. 

I think about blogging every day.  Every time I sit at the computer I think about my poor neglected blog with much remorse.  But there is nothing there.  I lay in bed ready to fall asleep each night and try and think of something to write.  But there is nothing there.  I spend my days as usual.  Doing.  Thinking.  Being.  But there is nothing there.  A friend even tells me to my face to blog more which is the greatest incentive of all!  But still there is nothing there!!!

Tonight as I lay (or is it lie?  Oh pity my poor sleeping brain!) in bed after Esther's 3:00 feeding (why does she always wake up at 3:00?  If we go to bed at 9:00 or 12:00, there she is at 3:00 read to eat!) I was left thinking again.  Thinking of something to blog about.  Thinking.  Thinking.  Thinking.  I began to twitch.  Scary but true.  I decided to just do it.  So here I am, probably scaring you much more than if I had just stayed in bed!  BUT, when you wake up in the morning, there will be a fresh new post from me.  So there Blogger's Block!

I'm beginning to feel that I will regret this deranged post in the morning.  I'm hoping you wont hold this against me forever.  As always,  any thought on things to write on are most welcome.  Just knowing you are there is the first step to recovery.  Together we will beat this Blogger's Block and say farewell to this desperate middle of the night ramblings forever!

a picture of that sweet baby helps any rambling post!
How's the garden? Been making anything lately? Any new herb projects? I've always enjoyed your blog, even when you don't post for awhile :)

As Stacy said, ending a post with that sweet baby face will cover any blog block! Blessings to you, Grace!
