The forecast says: Dry spell at 2nd Cup.
I'm coping with my zero-creativity by linking you to a couple of new sites I'm enjoying and to a site where I was interviewed, sort of. Warning: that interview is political in nature. ("oooh, she's gettin' Mavericky!")
But I also have a question for you: How in the world do you keep up with visiting other blogs? I cannot seem to do it. I do work outside the home, and I suppose that makes a difference, but still, it's getting harder and harder. If you have a routine, would you mind sharing it here? I'd be ever-so-grateful.
And then, go check out
Melissa at A Long Way From the Theta House, where she writes about herself:
Sometimes, we are given ministries we would not have asked for in a thousand years. This blog is all about mine. I am a stay at home mother of four and my husband runs an inner city ministry in Dallas. We live in the community, the ghetto, the hood, the place you most likely avoid when driving through our fair city. We love it. Seriously, love it.
Melissa is a great writer living a wonderful life. She won me over with this post about getting a bird out of a friend's fireplace in high heels. Pics included!
Secondly, I found "Happy Mama" at Pancakes/Diary of a New American recently, and I am completely captivated by her and her story. This girl MUST write a book. Here is what her profile says:
I am a Christian mom of two small kids, a loving wife of one almost perfect husband and a diligent full-time “non-traditional” student. I am Russian and English happens to be my fourth language. I love to read, write,dance,draw,sleep although it is not easy to find time for these lately. I love people and I love God. I adore my kids and my American hubby. Life of an immigrant can be hard and even though I've been in the United States for almost 5 years, I still get into some ridiculous and embarrassing situations. The way to deal with them, is to laugh at myself. You are welcome to laugh with me.:-)
That great poster at the left is one I lifted from her blog. She has all kinds of neat stuff going on there. Make sure you read several posts to get a good feel for how unique she is.
Finally, Debbie at Suburb Sanity gets me rolling with laughter. Dry wit, very dry wit. I don't dare lift anything from this one's blog because I think she might come after me. But I could claim that I was just a crazed fan who wanted something like a lock of hair but settled for a pic from her blog instead. Nah. I ain't stoopid.
Finally (no, really, "finally" this time), if you like, you can read my answers to some questions from Sarah at Kingdom Twindom about blogging and politics.
OK, so those are my recommendations. If you have any inspirations/questions for me to help me get the juices flowin' again, bring 'em on, my friends, bring 'em on.
