I have ZERO ideas to write about! And that frankly makes me snarky. But I’ll deal with it. You will notice that there was no blog post up for yesterday…I had a blank brain yesterday too…that makes me double snarky.
So here I sit, staring at my computer screen, with this stupid, scrunched up look on my face (Todd even asked me if I was okay–that’s how bad the look is), & I’m just typing random letters like this “ksdfahskdnfud.” Do you think this would make a good post? Just a bunch of crazy letters thrown together? No? Yeah, I didn’t think so either. So now I’m triple make that quadruple snarky about not having anything to write about.
I’ve been wanting to write a post about one of my favorite quotes:
But it also reminds me of my past dreams & all the dreams that have come true–all because I was brave enough to sail away from the safe harbor. So here’s another quote about the adventure I’m on right now:
Marriage & Motherhood are my two greatest adventures–I wouldn’t trade either of my boys to climb the Egyptian pyramids or hike through Mayan ruins (I just plan on dragging them both along with me!)
These two quotes have helped me go from snarky to happy & then to grateful for all that I have–I honestly have nothing to be snarky about–except that now Todd is making me go run–I don’t wanna! ::cue the whiny voice::
Week #5 Word: Snarky
**Update** A couple of nights ago I told you about the Mama Bird in her nest with her cute little blue eggs–yeah we had a TERRIBLE storm the other night & it blew her nest & eggs out of the tree! I went out there to go “visit” her today (from a distance) & that’s where I discovered the tragedy. ::sobbing:: I’m so sad….
Fantastic quotes (I particularly like the one about marriage because that's how I feel too). I'm so upset about the mama bird. Nature is cruel!

It's awesome when you go from snarky to happy. Well done!! Love the quotes and really try to live my life by the "do-what-makes-you-happy-so-you-won't-have-any-regrets" idea.
The birdy tragedy breaks my heart. Nature can be cruel. Sometimes it makes you wonder "why"?
I love your quote about marriage! I remember you quoting that to me around the time I got married. That is exactly how I felt then and how I feel now. The greatest adventure of my life is being a wife and mother.
I am terribly sorry about the birds. I hate it when things like that happen!
Uh oh…a quadruple snarky AND said whinily! Yikes!!
That is some powerful quotes you got there, lady! Thanks for sharing them, I totally love it. Oh and great snarky post too 😉
Such great quotes – thank you for them today. I needed it…
I love those quotes. They remind me of a third one that does something like "you can't reach new horizons if you're unwilling to leave sight of the shore." That and "a kick in the butt is a step forward."

I love the quote and outlook on life/marriage/baby!
Everyone is aloud to be snarky every now and then!
I love the quotes! They are both so true!
I'm a huge quote fan, and both of these quotes rock! Good snarky usage, too 😉
Sorry to hear about the mama bird and her nest…that sucks…
I love the word snarky 🙂

Isn't it great that we can draw inspiration from a great mans quote. I'd never heard of snarky before reading this post, thanks for the new word.

That's very sad about the bird eggs. Nature is rough.
I agree, the marriage/motherhood adventure eclipses all those other potential things that could have been.

Snarky? I get it. I'm snarky about 85% of the time. And I'm cool with that.
That photo… jumping off the cliff into the unknown? That's how I feel every morning when I hop (ok, crawl) out of bed….
