Ugh. Where do I start?

I have been such a bad blogger lately. First I just gave up on the A-Z Challenge. That was a decision. Probably a good one for all involved. (Meaning me, my attention starved daughter, and my attention starved husband.) Then I just gave up on blogging entirely. No more writing, barely reading, and basically, not caring. But now where does that leave me..........

Well, it leaves me returning to the old, non-blogging me, and I don't like that me. She is way too serious and not great at finding the humor in most situations. She ruminates and has a hard time directing her thoughts. She is dancing a lot these days, but "thinking" too much in between. (And, basically every joint in her body is popping when she moves because she is too old to be doing so much dancing.) The old, non-blogging me is starting to annoy me so I'm saying good-bye to her. Now I just need to tap into the balanced blogging me. She is somewhere between the non-blogging me and the X-treme blogging me. I am obviously not channeling the balanced blogging me yet, because the balanced blogging me would not still be typing right now, making herself late for a friend's baby shower.........

......or would she....?


  1. Happy mediums! They are so difficult to find.

    However, I have a mildly amused small if you'd like to borrow it!

  2. I write each day and it can get hard to find time. I get round this by not thinking to much about what I write....... So it seldon makes sense, but keeps me happy

  3. It's harder than it looks, especially if you have another life. I had house guests, an itching attack, and am taking a class for which I neglected to do the reading, so I was not prepared. And then you worry about everything when you are trying to sleep. So, you are not alone. I loved the descriptions you wrote about ballet.

  4. Do not forget about us, your attention starved followers! We'll be here when you are ready.

    Oh, and thanks for the kind words you posted on my blog. The feeling is reciprocal. I enjoy reading what you have written and will continue to follow for sure.

    All the best!

  5. I totally understand where you are coming from on this. Life can be busy, but it can also be inspiring. May life inspire you to write and may you find your balance.

  6. Blogging seems really tough sometimes. I had to abandon mine for a while, while I did other important things, and I'm finding it very hard to get back into now.
    I think it's important to keep it light and do it when it's fun, when you can, and not see it as another chore or obligation. When it gets like that, I think it's time to take a break.

  7. Just stopping by following my post A to Z hiatus and to tell you I nominated you for a Liebster Award on my blog. Didn't know what it was until I got one myself, but decided to play along and send out my own nominations. Congratulations, (I think).


    1. "...Congratulations, (I think)..."

      You crack me UP!

      You also made my day. :o)


Go ahead, make my day.
