I am a broken record these days. Nothing to say, ignoring what's on the horizon, trying to focus only on what's to do today, this hour, this minute. And what's to do this day, this hour, this minute is for me to finish proofreading a server installation SOP, send an email to the client, then pack for yet another mind-numbing five-hour drive to Los Angeles, where my grandmother waits in an exhausting limbo.

I have one anecdote to relate, and one anecdote only: Jeff asked me if I'd go with him "to China so we can get a baby." He does, in fact, know it's not as simple as finding a nice ripe girl-child in some Guangdong melon stall and simply walking off with her like a honeydew, but at least the idea has implanted itself quite firmly in his sweet, sweet mind, and not just my own.

If there's anyone still out there reading this boring, boring blog, I offer you another abject apology for my inability to write something interesting for, oh, a month or three. You are a trouper to put up with all of this boringness.

You know, I've found that in the blogworld after a while you just get accustommed to looking for certain people, hoping they've posted; it really doesn't matter at all what they actually do post just that they post. Call it inertia or unconditional connection, whatever. Anyway, I'm still reading.:)

Nah, you're not boring. I'll let you know if/when that happens, 'k?

Best of luck with the grandmother situation. Hoping it gets a bit easier, while knowing that it may not.

Glad to hear Jeff is ready to go on Chinese baby recon missions...the true test will be if he's willing to do the paperwork part!

I'm a new reader and a new blogger, and I check in with you every day to see how you're doing. Keep 'em coming, you're not at all boring, and I want to hear how things are going.

The slow times help us rejuvenate and prepare for continued fighting against the big, bad IF. Your blog is one of my favorites . . .

Darling, try as you might, you aren't boring. Even in your post CALLED "Booooooooooring", you still made me giggle at the thought of little Chinese girls growing on the vine.

It does sounds as though you are becoming weary though. I can't say I blame you. I just hope that good things come along to give you a wealth of energy and happiness.

Not boring, boring is when you can't think of anything to put in your own blog so you go in search of someone else's blog to write comments! :)

Honestly bugs, there's no need to apologize. Even the little post about Jeff's comment warmed my heart. Boring you are not.

You're not boring, but I know that feeling. I have it right now for my blog as well, stuck in a rut of boredom.

I'll make you a deal, Bugs: if you will keep reading my boring blog, I will keep reading your boring blog. Okay? I'm just hoping that this means there is something REALLY EXCITING just around the corner for us. :-)
