I’m Fresh Out Of Material

Well, there’s been lots going on here the last few days, and as a result of all the activity, I seem to start posts and then get sidetracked because something needs my attention or Alex needs some more eyedrops (POLLEN, THOU ART EVIL) or I want to go back outside and stare at the pink dogwood that’s starting to bloom.

However, my lack of productivity is not in vain, because I am proud to announce that I now have about eight partially-written posts that are – and I say this in all humility, of course – really, extraordinarily adequate.

Oh, it’s true. Those incomplete posts reach entirely new plateaus of sufficiency.

And when I finish them? And actually post them?

Well, I have no doubt that you will receive them with great tolerance.

And then we will hold hands and sing.

Also: Anne is staying with us this weekend, and I need to go do some laundry now because I think she would probably appreciate some clean towels and maybe even some sheets.



I guess that’s all.

Except that if you’ve ever had a question you wanted to ask me, now is the time to fire away and ask in the comments.

Unless said question pertains to my real and/or imaginary weight, my thoughts on predestination, or anything that’s remotely related to math.

I think it goes without saying that anyone who tries to sneak in a word problem will be banned from the blog forever.

And seriously, I can’t promise that I’ll answer every single question, but at the very least I’ll try to answer a few of them every week.

As always, I’m setting some very ambitious and lofty goals.

Because as the famous saying goes: if you reach for the moon, the worst thing that can happen is that you land on a nice, comfy couch where you can snuggle up and take a nap.

Or something like that.

  1. Hi BooMama,
    I’m sorta new here! I’ve been reading some of your archived posts and I just LOVE you! I just wanted you to know that I love reading your posts everyday!

    Talk to you soon!

    Kristi Lynn

    P.S. I tried to make your mama’s pound cake…I emailed you about it :) ENJOY that laugh!

  2. What is the one thing about every day that makes you really joyful? What brings a smile to your face?

  3. Real/Imaginary weight…


    I think I shall embrace my imaginary weight.

  4. Honestly? I love you even when you write about nothingish.

  5. Can I just say how much I am loving your new design? It makes me really happy to log on here and see those pretty flowers. It’s very pretty, and also chic, but what else would I expect???

  6. Here’s to the imaginary weight! Love it.

    OK…Is there any adventure or project you’ve been dying to try, but money or time or whatever have prevented you?

    How did you and the BooDaddy meet?

    That’s all I’ve got. :)

  7. So.

    A van travels a maximum of 100 km/h. Its speed decreases in proportion with the number of passengers. The van can carry a maximum of seven people. Given that the van can travel 88 km/h with 3 people in the van, what will be the speed of the van when 6 people are on board?

  8. kelli is brave.

  9. ::: waving at BooMama :::



  10. Do you ever experience anxiety? I’ve been struggling with it lately and I come here and it is a peaceful haven.

    And just as importantly, what is your favorite snack cake?

  11. What has been your favorite age of your child? (including now if now is your most favorite) Must include pictures for us to ooh and ahh over. No math required–if remembering his age is considered math then we need to talk.

  12. I thought you might enjoy this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXb6bjCCtuY
    Denny is a long time entertainer that my college friends and I discovered by accident about 15 years ago. We still enjoy his stuff (lol);)

  13. I also would love to hear about how you BooDaddy met, fell in love, decided to spend eternity together, etc.

    I’m also curious what you did for a living before you became a mom.

    Could I be any more nosy?

  14. I know getting a book published isn’t as glamorous as it sounds, but is that something you’d like to do someday? (I will buy many, many copies!)

    And yes, more about your hubby!

    And did you get the book I sent you?

    And how old are you?

    And have you ever been to Ohio?

  15. Never fails, I come to your site for a uplifting moment! Okay, honestly it’s the uncontrolably laughter!
    But for real…
    Proverbs 17:22 “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”
    How do you keep your cheerful heart?

  16. So, do I understand that you’re NOT re-inventin’ the wheel here? To which I say, bravo!

    Raisin’ the bar so subtly, we nevah saw it comin’ ;).

    Chock full of cuteness, you just can’t help it :).

  17. do you plan on having more children? i am perfectly content with my one, but am bombarded constantly with people telling i am selfish if i don’t have at least one more. it wasn’t easy to get this one here, much less another. just wondering your thoughts?

    thanks boo, you. crack. me. up.

    and make me smile like cappaccino chucky chocolate frozen yogurt from braums….mmmmm. off to braums.

  18. I’ve been reading for a long time and think I’ve commented maybe once or twice ~ I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your blog so much … laughter is supposed to reduce cortisol levels, so you can consider yourself one of my 2 favorite antioxidants (the other one is dark chocolate:-).

    PS ~ I was reading your post on my laptop in my dark kitchen (storms outside) and on first reading I thought you said no questions related to “meth” … I wish I had your gift so I could come up with something funny to say about that! :-)

  19. What is your favorite Bible Study and why? (And don’t let the fact that Amanda, FryDaddy, and maybe even Bibby herself read your blog sway you in any way.)
    ahem. Mine is A Woman’s Heart, God’s Dwelling Place.
    I’m just sayin’.

  20. What does your sister do in Nashville that she gets to meet and go to all those fabulous events??

  21. I KNOW it to be a veritable impossibility for BooMama to run out of blogging material.

    Good one. You’re a few days late to call it April Fool’s!

    My question: WHAT or WHO has shaped your sense of humor?

  22. Are you a morning person or a night owl?

  23. How does one gain admittance to your totally rockin’ blogroll? I’ve told my husband, the General, that my aspiration as an amateur blogger is to someday be included on your totally rockin’ blogroll, and he, with his normal supportive nature said, “And just how are you going to do that?” And I said, “I don’t know”. So I’m asking. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Seriously…love you. Thanks for making me laugh.

  24. Do you wear flip flops?

    I want you to say yes, because then I can wear mine with pride, knowing I have your blessings…


  25. i’d like to hear more about your mom…i remember in that story about her sleeping in the car on road trips you talked something about her keeping an immaculate home, cooking 3 meals a day, and raising children and all that. i’d love to hear how she did it all! i have two girls ages 2 1/2 and 4 mos., i work my hiney off all day, but i still can’t keep it all together. :-) and my family’s lucky if i cook ONE meal a day!

    and a side note to amy and all the other moms of one child who keep getting static about it: i’m an only child, and i LOVED it! i wouldn’t have changed a thing.

  26. When you were 12 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up? What did you want to be by the time you were 18?

  27. Can’t always hit a home run, and your batting average is pretty high. Or…in terms you might understand better…can’t always sink the big threes, but you’re usually a triple-double kinda girl. ;)

  28. Nate's Mom says:

    Your top 10 favorite books of all time, please. Also favorite TV shows of all time.

    Nate’s Mom

  29. Well some of the questions that I may have asked have been done so already. So…why have we never seen a picture of your beautiful family on your blog? Boodaddy seems like a very mysterious character!

  30. In addition to BooDaddy, how and when did you and Jesus meet and fall in love & decide to spend eternity together?

    Seriously, I love conversion stories. I even thought about doing a Conversion Carnival. Wondering about your testimony as a sistah.

  31. First, to Kelli–the answer is Philadelphia. The answer is always Philadelphia.

    Now to Boo Boo Mama (as my 6 year-old calls your blog). Have you ever blogged about something that you wished later you HADN”T shared with the universe? If so, when did you realize it was a mistake?

  32. Every time you have posted any pictures of your home it looks like you’ve got some realllllly cool art work. Is it a specific artist or just random pieces?

  33. Do you floss?
    If your life were made into a movie, who would play YOU?
    Hardest thing God has asked of you?

  34. Hey BooMama! Just wondering if you are a stay at home mom. And, if so, how do you do that? I want to–I just feel like I can’t this day and time. . . any ideas for me???

  35. If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be? They asked me that in college and I’m still wondering, so I hope you know.

    Would you like fries with that?

  36. Are you planning on homeschooling? Because we need more people who drink cokes from Sonic to homeschool. Seriously.

  37. No questions today. . .just that you are precious and make me smile. . .and I hope you enjoy your comp’ny this weekend.

  38. Hey Boomama…. I read almost every day, but have only commented once or twice. I am not nearly as witty as your other commenters. :)

    I wonder how you have the time to ‘run’ such a successful blog. You know: all of the 5 million comments, questions, finding time to blog, moderating, updating the blog list, etc.

    I am starting an info website and having oh so much trouble trying to fit it in.

    I’d love to hear your seasoned thoughts!


  39. I’m rather new at the blogging thing, including reading yours, so if you haven’t answered it already, I would love to ask if you have any tips for new bloggers, any enlightenment for us newbies…

  40. Your last paragraph in the post says, “Because as the famous saying goes: if you reach for the moon, the worst thing that can happen is that you land on a nice, comfy couch where you can snuggle up and take a nap.”

    That describes my afternoon today to a “T”. I’m glad I’m not the only one.

  41. How did David propose? What was your wedding like (and pictures please!)
    Is there a good story behind when you found out you were pregnant with Alex? How did you tell David and your parents????

  42. Where do you come UP with such funny material?!?!? Cause, seriously, I LAUGH almost every day… like, ugly, snorting laughter… not cute little giggles.

  43. Have you been baptized? And your thoughts on that?
