Long time, no see

I can't believe I haven't posted in over a month and a half!  But I've noticed quite a few bloggers I follow have taken hiatuses (hiati? what is the plural of hiatus?), so I don't feel so bad. (No, I still feel bad.)

I have been working (working working working), and I still don't have internet at home (SIGH).  If I don't get internet for Christmas, I may hurt someone. 

Anyway, I have been spending my babysitter-time today trying to catch up on some blog reading (since I can't do that very well on my phone), and basically just playing around online.  I should be writing, but I've hit a blah.  I'm not blocked, per say, but I feel blah, and I just can't get into my writing.  I think it's a combination of too much going on (three jobs, three kids, NO INTERNET, etc.) and exhaustion and no real routine writing time.  I only have eight more school days before I have three weeks off, so I'm hoping to shake the blah off then.

So, I was wondering, what do you do when you hit a blah?  How do you get past it?

Also, I'm super excited to be going to the SCBWI FL Regional Conference in Miami again next month!  As usual, I will be giving away two or three of the conference faculty's books (signed!) here on the blog when I get back.  Since I'm hoping to get some bookstore gift cards for Christmas and use them to buy the books, now is your chance to tell me which books you'd like to have the opportunity to win!  Go here to see the faculty line up, and let me know in the comments which books you think I should give away.
