I always knew it would happen… by the time mid October arrived I knew life would be mental, and I was right. Birthdays, christmas stuff, more birthdays, end of year stuff, friends coming to visit stuff, holiday stuff… just stuff, lots and lots of stuff all racing around in my head competing for time and attention.
For the past few weeks I feel like I have been writing rambly dribble on the blog… you know, stuff that is just mundane, boring day to day stuff, stuff with out any spark… See there it goes again.. stuff is taking over my life! I do have things to say, interesting, important, curious things, that I want to talk about, I just don’t have the time to figure out how exactly I want to say them. So instead I am marking time here… and it’s beginning to bug me.
So I think I’ll take the pressure off a bit for the next little while… I’m not going to stop blogging, it’s become too much part of my daily routine to dump it all together and I enjoy it too… but I am going to stop trying to come up with wonderful, insightful things to write about and instead just give little snippets of our life now and then. Various wonderful blogs I read seem to writes posts like these – Soule Mamma (is there anyone in the world who doesn’t ready this blog) writes a ‘ten things’ post every once in a while that I always enjoy and Towards Sustainability writes these lovely ‘doing, making, contemplating..’ posts which I also enjoy… so I am going to steal the idea and come up with my own version. So stay tuned!
Here’s hoping you’ll all stick with me while I try and simplify my blogging life a for a little while… until all the mental stuff goes away… or at least dies down some!
