Bloggers-Block & ADD

So I've seen a few posts here and there from other bloggers talking about essentially writer's block. And I find myself falling into that recently. I have been a bad blogger lately! I think that I need to find a way to organize an "idea board" of sorts on topics to write about. The problem isn't that I don't feel like talking, we all know I could talk and talk for hours but I find myself like a crazy ADD kid hopped up on Mountain Dew and my thoughts flit around like a schizophrenic and I can't keep centered on one idea. This is also the time of year that business picks up, a lot, so I'm trying to balance the increased work load and the more active, busy, and LOUD child with my blogging and all the other life tasks... so I apologize if the blog is lacking lately, but hey at least I've got some great giveaways going on!

So I need some help, I need ideas on topics to write about, any type of thing that would spark my brain and give me enough interest to stay focused for more than 5.2 seconds. Any ideas? Anything in particular you'd like to hear from me or about me?? Want to meet my family? Want to see my favorite recipe? Want to hear about my favorite movies and how I can literally quote the entirety of these movies word for word? Want to see the plants and veggies that I've planted? Want to know what my hubby and I are up to? I could talk about marriage, I could talk about pregnancy, I could talk about friendships, weddings, sex, grocery shopping.... I have a whole slew of things to write about but I start a post and then half way through I think it's stupid so I stop and then usually end up deleting it. Like right about now, I'm close to deleting this post because I feel like I'm rambling about nothing and no one would want to read about my ramblings that end with no real point... is it really glaringly obvious that I have this ADD thing going on? I feel like I wander in and out and jumble things all together. Maybe not??

This is why I'm always biting off more than I can chew. Like I've said many times before, I constantly have my hand in oh about a million things at any given time. Yet I still keep piling on more and more and more. Like this past week I decided to add a completely new business venture to my list of life tasks to figure out, I got 2 chickens, yes like real live chickens in my backyard, I decided we are going to sell our house and have begun looking for new ones, and I've been researching a cruise to the Bahamas, oh yea and I'm also looking into organizing a Mom Meetup/Vacay weekend to meet all of you! All this just in the past week or two and guess what, next week I'll probably do the same thing and I'll have another handful of hair-brained ideas to focus my attention on. Is that crazy? Maybe I really do have ADD and need medication?

So back to the point... I derailed for a minute there... Will you help me... give me some writing inspiration so I can get some posts fired off here??

Ohhhh I know what you mean. My problem is I always have these great ideas about things as I'm drifting off to sleep at night and then I wake up in the morning and- nothing.
btw: a mommy meet up sounds really fun! I'd love to meet mommy bloggers in person.
