Oops, I did it again…

It has been over a month, once again, since I've been here. I have been plagued with what seemed at first to be allergies, but became a never ending cold, and eventually culminated in a sinus infection. I finally left work early to take myself to the doctor last Monday and got a ten day… Continue reading Oops, I did it again…

Things Change

Things sure change don't they. I don't know what's changed, I just know that it has. I have fallen into a rut from which I'm not sure how to emerge. It's gotten into all the little crannies of my life too - my mental space, my physical energy, my ambitions, my relationships - the whole… Continue reading Things Change

My Latest Hangup

I've been gone a long time, and I've missed being here. But I think it was only in a moment when I was letting my mind wander, unrelated to blogging, that I realized why my desire to write hasn't translated into a real post as often as it used to. I was sitting and thinking… Continue reading My Latest Hangup

The Adventure Continues

She sat herself down on the couch with a sense of determination and a vacuous look in her eyes. She wanted to say something but she wasn't quite sure what. Fairly par for the course. At least all the circumstances had lined up to finally write something - no work left to do at home,… Continue reading The Adventure Continues

November 1st

Will this once again be the beginning of NaBloPoMo for me? I've been posting so little lately, I have extreme doubts about my ability to come up with something worthwhile for 30 consecutive days. While I sit here and mull it over let me just throw a couple of facts out there. The worst day… Continue reading November 1st

Silence

It makes sense that after talking to eight year olds all day that I wouldn't want to continue vocalizing, come end of day. But what is quite inexplicable is that I cannot find the words that have been squashed back for another time - the words whose time and place is not an elementary classroom… Continue reading Silence

Delete

I can't even recall the number of posts which I've started to write recently that I've gotten half way through and then gone over to that little "Move to Trash" button and deleted. Do you ever find yourself just writing crap? I do it all the time. But what's worse is when you find yourself… Continue reading Delete

Conflict – Hiatus?

I am finding myself in conflict when it comes to posting on my blog. I struggled my way through NaBloPoMo, and at the end of the day, had a lot of fun with most of those posts. It was sometimes hard to remember to write daily, but once I was writing, I was usually glad… Continue reading Conflict – Hiatus?

Confession…

Okay I have a confession to make. As I've been tackling this NaBloPoMo challenge, I've been cheating. Well, I mean not technically. I feel that the only way to really cheat would be to either steal other people's posts, or to post date a post if you missed a day. I've done neither of those… Continue reading Confession…
