Think About It Thursdays #23....Um, Erm, Gimme a Question.

Thanks for participating in last week's "Are you where you thought you'd be?" question.

Some comments to share from the group.

My life is isn't where I thought it would be at all - but it's actually better.

I wasn't planning on even thinking about getting married until I was 30 and never in a hundred years did I expect to be a SAHM.

I was going to be a hard core career girl all the way. I even had the hard core job for 5 years and got the masters degree.

My second is due a week before my 30th birthday and I've been married 5 years. Who knew?

Can I tell you how excited I was to read that post. That you were pregnant. Oh.My.God. So excited. I'm silly. I know :)

My goal was to be published by 25.

That never happened.

I'm working on getting published by 30.

I hope that happens.

Fingers crossed. Your an excellent writer.

In some ways, I'm beyond where I thought I'd be.

I do feel like a grown up who knows her own mind, something I expected by 28 but didn't really get to for another few years.

I do have more than one child, something I wasn't sure would happen and almost didn't (they're 15 years apart), but nowhere near the eight I "knew" I'd have when I was younger.

The man I'm married to is frequently the stuff dreams are made of, with not too much real life "guy" thrown in. Not sure how I score like I did, so don't tell anyone.

We own a home... a dream only recently hatched and very recently achieved.

But I'm not a nurse, which was my back up plan for the eight kids. I've looked into it, but my tolerance for school isn't what it once... oh, who am I kidding? I don't have the attention span for it.

This is off topic, but this foggy-brained morning a song came on the radio. Something by Kenny Chesney, where he sings "I was going fast as a Rambler goes... " The visual image that usually comes with that song has now been replaced by some sort of amalgam of you pushing a stroller and working in a restaurant at warp speed. As I said, foggy-brained morning.

Where have you been my whole life? I completely enjoyed your comments this week!!

"I'm stumped people. Gimme a question. I'll use these questions for the next couple of Think About It Thursdays post"

I haven't been really feeling the blog life lately. I can't understand it. I look at my laptop and sigh rather than burn it's lifetime in battery life down. Maybe like Mammatalk said, it's summer and maybe bloggers prefer this as a winter sport?

However, I did read a post yesterday from It's a Fine Life. It really resonated with me and I completely understood what she was writing about. About filling your emotional cup. Please go over there and check it out. Interesting read.

Until next week folks.


21 ramblings of your own:

Saskia said...

I'm in a bit of a blog-rut too... I think it's the hot weather making me lazy!

My question would be:

What book has made the biggest impression on you and why?

Not sure if you're an avid reader, but I am and I'd love to hear your readers, and your, thoughts!

Have a great day xx

MammaDucky said...

I've missed you my dear!
Ummm, my question is probably lame, but I often wonder how people come up with their blog titles or display names. Some are kinda obvious, but others, I wonder.

Stereos and Souffles said...

I've been blocked for good stuff myself, seems a lot of people are. I blame it on the heat in my case.

Shorty said...

Hang in there with the blogging block. I feel your pain. I look at the screen and wonder what to write about... over-analyze if I can sound deep and thought provoking... get tired of posting about crafty stuff all the time. Here's to finding lots more to write about and loving how we say it!

Tooj said...

Summer has a way of zapping all "other" things with its abundance of fun. Enjoy the summer, enjoy the family. Blog life will still be here if you take a day or three hiatus. Happy Thursday!

Martha said...

I know I am going on a blog diet.

Here's a quick question-

Ever dealt with a life or death situation for yourself, friend, or stranger??

Thanks, Ramberlina.

Hmm, that's another Question-

Any nicknames in your family, friends and the story behind it??

Martha said...

I meant to write Ramblerina, more coffee por favor!!

Kathy B! said...

I think you just have to blog as it suits you, and I think you are doing just fine. I go through times when I have so much to say and then times when I feel as though I have nothing...

A question? Hmmm. How about what's the one thing in your life (that you can control) that you want to change, and how will you do it.

Housewife Savant said...

I miss you, but if you're gonna slack off for a season - make it summer, and ENJOY.

OliveStreetStudio said...

I'm in a blog rut also - if my mom didn't finish the Memory Quits we were commissioned to make, I'd be at a total loss. I was tagged yesterday, so that will give me something!

:-)

OliveStreetStudio said...

So I tagged you on my blog if you feel like answering the Qs....happy thursday night!

BTW- Hubby just told me Michael Jackson died today!!! I have to check out TMZ...

WhisperingWriter said...

I'm in a blog rut but really only because I'm not at my home until July 9th so I just don't have a lot of time at the moment.

Thank you for your nice comment in response to my comment :) I liked other people's responses too.

Mammatalk said...

I love your posts any season. :+)

The Blonde Duck said...

I always feel bad b/c now that I'm always on assignment for my job, I can't comment as much.

Gamma Sharon said...

I like reading your blog... I was reading on another bloggers blog how she was spending to much time and if she didn't she felt guilty. She linked us to a blog about Guilt Free blogging, here is the link to her post: http://pamperspective.blogspot.com/2009/06/guilt-free-blogging.html if you are interested.

If you had a functioning tail, would you tuck it in your pants/skirt or use it openly... I wish I had an extra hand regularly so I would probably use it.

ClaireMontgomeryMD said...

there are some great questions in 'the question of the day' book which started as a blog. i'd share with you but i'm too lazy to get off my ass and go fetch the book at the moment.

Funny in my mind said...

Amble (Ramble) on over cause I gave you an award!

Shan said...

I've been racking my brain for a suitable question. Now that it's all stretched out and kinda dry, I've realized, I used a couple of good ones recently in a class I teach:

Can you tell us about a person who irritates you? (This came from a recent trip to Vegas... ahem... and was very cathartic for me and apparently for the people in class as well.)

Conversely, can you tell us about a person who enriches your life? (Not sure what this says about my students, but they didn't have as much to say on this one...)

And thanks for your comments on my blog. While you were snorting in the bathroom (uh... you know what I mean, right?), I was spinning around in my chair at work with my hands up, singing hoohoolala.

Kalei said...

A little what if:
If you awoke to find you were a kid again, what lesson would you take with you and apply differently....how do you think it would change your current life and family situation. and we all KNOW that we can't replace our kids, and we are all very happy to have our current hubbies, BF's and GF's and Jobs.....

For me, I think if I took one lesson back with me, I would apply the one of financial intelligence. I am smarter about money now then way back in college. It would change my completing college, change the debt I carried with me for a decade.....and probably my choices in traveling and being more experienced in all there is to see. I would be more confident with risk taking and probably have a nesty egg........My Kids, they would still arrive exactly as they are now, only we would have paid someone to renovate our home rather than do it ourselves....and it would be done already. =)

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.opuskali.ru]Viagra Super Active[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
