How Much Water is Too Much?

I've been drinking a lot of water lately. I mean 4-5 bottles a day, or 80-100 ounces. Why is that important besides me going to the bathroom a lot, and I feel healthier? It's not. But isn't that a COOL picture???

Reminds me of when I had chemo and I had to be really hydrated before I went in for treatment, and I drank and drank lots and lots and lots of water so I could get in get it over with and get out as soon as possible. It's not that I didn't like the hospital, it's that I hated it.

So, I don't have much to talk about. Can you tell? Be honest. I just really want to blog and I figure if I just start writing I'm bound to write something interesting. Maybe THIS is why people have kids. Our lives are so boring without them. The last few weeks I've been out of school, going to work, Tracie's been allowed to work from home, and in our spare time we've been alternating exercise with vegging out playing video games. It's been awesome. But I can't really blog about it.

Everyone else: Today our child did something so cute/adorable/sweet/naughty/worth writing about! Being a parent is so rewarding!

Me: Today I got my mage up to level 35 and now he's an Artisan Enchanter!

Yeah, not the same. But, hopefully soon we'll have a little bundle of joy or at least a little bundle that we can take care of and write about. In the meantime, I'm gonna keep drinking my water!

I never thought about it that way, but you're right. If I wasn't expecting a baby, I'd have very little to write about, too. Pretty much the only thing that's going on other than that is my work (which is boring as all get out) and Joel studying for the bar (and you can imagine how exciting that is).

Hey, maybe a mid-step before having a baby would be to get a pet. I take TONS of pictures of our cat and blog about him quite a bit. He's kind of like a toddler.

Heather said...

That's pretty true. I wouldn't have even started a blog if I didn't have kids. I probably wouldn't even be scrapbooking much either.

Jeanette said...

Hey there! I'm blog hoping and thought I'd leave you a comment.

I think you always have something witty to say on Sugie's blog, and I think your blog is very fun to read. I've popped in before and spied on you and your bride. It's been fun peeking in. Thought it was time to say "Hi".

p.s. I don't get what the picture is of. I guess I'm lame. :(

Kris said...

Loved the pic...Sounds like you are ready to join the club of being parents. You are right...kids are what makes us do what we do.

Charity said...

ha ha, yes, we have children to make our blogs more interesting ;)

JanB said...

Well, even with 4 of my own chlidren, I still have nothing to blog about for long stretches of time. You don't want to hear about my crummy job or my adventures in weeding the flower beds, or the kids staying up way too late every night, do you?

Charlo said...

People write about their kids because they are afraid they aren't clever enough to stand on their own. Sometimes the kids lives are even more boring than the adults

Mandy said...

I got a build a bear in the hopes that it would fulfill my need to mother something and give me something to blog about. So far that hasn't worked so I may have to move on to plan B...a PET! Animals are cute right? Ar eyou guys trying to increase your family size too?

Austin said...

Jasmine- that's a good idea, but we don't want a dog and I'm allergic to cats. :(

Heather- I love your blog no matter what you talk about! (that goes for everyone, fyi ;))

Jeanette- How are you?! I don't think you're lame, it's some photoshopped picture of a person made up of water. I just thought it was cool. and "HI!" to you too.

Kris- Thanks for always replying to my blogs, I love yours, and want you to update it (again, that goes for everyone :))

Charity- What other reason IS there? ;)

Jan- I want to hear whatever you want to write about!

Charlotte- Ain't it the sad truth!

Mandy- I don't want a pet, but the build a bear thing sounds good! We have a stuffed monkey named charles and a stuffed bear named Claire. That's probably all the animals we can handle/fit on our dresser, but yeah, we'll try for a real bundle of joy soon here.
