There once was a blogger named Gale
Who posted each week without fail.*
But try as she might
she just couldn’t write;
last evening her efforts did pale.
So I come to you now with a limerick.
Please don’t think that I’m playing a trick.
For I earnestly thought,
“Make an effort, or not?”
And this is what I could pen real quick.**
But I still bring good wishes for Friday.
And I trust that big thoughts will come my way
over the weekend,
so come back here, my friend,
for something worthwhile on Monday.
Last night the creative juices just weren’t flowing. I joined all of the boys to walk the dogs. Then I went out for a run on my own. Then I came home, bathed and fed SSP, ate a sandwich, watched an episode of Modern Family that was saved in our DVR, made my lunch for today, showered, and went to bed. Blogging just didn’t figure into the mix. I hope you’ll forgive me.
Have a happy and safe Super Bowl weekend, and I’ll see you back here next week!
*I realize that this is a stretch – especially coming on the heels of my hit-and-miss posting during maternity leave – but sometimes we must sacrifice the truth to save the rhyme.
**And sometimes we must sacrifice the grammar to save the rhyme. For all you adverb mongers (Hi Granddaddy!), I’m fully aware that this should read “really quickly.”
