In a Rut?

I was thinking for awhile that I've been in a rut, but then this morning I realized it isn't a rut....it's a big friggin' ditch! I know I haven't posted much, and I haven't commented on very many of your posts lately, but I am here, and I have been reading most of the blogs, but just haven't had much to add.
I read this post that Ann put up at the beginning of the year and decided to use this as a post for myself, cause I have nothing else to say. :) Thanks Ann for giving me some inspiration, even if I'm not being original.
