If you build it, they will come ...


Well, aren't I a big FAT liar? Sure, I lull you into believing I will post more, but then what happened? It's just not fair ...

My legos are just plain stuck. Stuck, stuck, stuck... I've tried pulling them apart, prying them apart (and frankly, I really shouldn't be holding sharp implements of pending doom). I've tried stomping on them (the legos, not the sharp implements), throwing them against hard objects (husband and son excluded), and they just WON'T BUDGE (um, the legos, not my husband or son) I tell you, THEY WON'T DO IT ...

So what do you do when you have legos that are stuck together?

You have 3 options.

1) You throw them away and start over. I know it's hard to let go of these things some times, but you just have to do it, I say ... LET IT GO!

2) You can redesign ... sure, it would have been nice to go with your original plan ... but some times you have to throw caution to the wind and just think "OUT OF THE LEGO BOX" ... try something new.

3) You can do nothing ... just keep stomping on those legos ... stomp, stomp, stomp ... wave your arms wildly in the air and get out those frustrations ... then try options 1 or 2 ... choosing option 3 will only make things worse in the long run (and believe me, I KNOW long runs ... I'm preparing for another half marathon in 8 weeks ... then maybe possibly another "we'll see how it goes - sure I'll consider it" marathon in 2010 ... whoo hoo!!!)

Life is really like a box of Legos ... and sometimes they do get stuck together, but you do have options ... if you build it, they will come!

Lovely lego house! Our girl likes legos, lincoln logs, blocks, and every other manner of building material she can find now. It's such a wonderful thing.

That is a cool Lego house! I always wanted a Lego set, Lincoln logs and Tinker Toys. I think my mom knew they would be scattered all over the house.

This is so cool! I can't wait to buy one for my son too but I was hesitating, since it will be all over the house...

Okay, I am going to get a pry bar and a bottle of wine and meet you at six. Together we can do it, right?
