come on, baby, finish what you started . . .

I don't know what is with me and blogging these days. I can't seem to finish a coherent thought. Probably due to pregnancy brain soup, combined with two small children, combined with time-sucking avoidance techniques for managing the stress of a long adoption (i.e. facebook and blog stalking). I think about writing all the time, and I even start posts with the best of intentions. In fact, I can't even tell you how many "drafts" I have saved right now that I need to finish. I had lots to say about the Arkansas ban on gay adoption, and then on the stimulus package, and some profound thoughts about sacrifice and service and the world at large. I've started posts on everything from The Bachelor to the FDLS cult, to how to adopt from Haiti. But I can't seem to finish and hit "publish post", because midway through my brain goes all ADD on me. So then I just post a you-tube video of my kids, or something I saw on The Onion. Or really old people singing hip-hop.

I have a little time to myself this afternoon, and my goal is to finish a few posts here, and then actually write something meaninful for Mama Manifesto and Conversant Life. But I'm already feeling distracted.

Hmm, maybe there is a funny Daily Show clip I can search for . . . .


  1. Mine is just plain old brain mush, minus the pregnancy.

    You've seen my blog lately? Obviously I can relate to how you're feeling. My blogger's block is most definitely not to be blamed on pregnancy, but it IS most probably blamed on stress avoidance related to our hoop-jumping, road-blocking adoption process. I feel your pain. ;)


talk to me.
