Something to Talk About

In the days since my marathon, I've found myself with more time on my hands than I know what to do with. Well, that's not entirely true. I could be more tidy and keep my house cleaner, but I figure if the slack schedule the first 3 months didn't hurt us, it surely isn't high priority now.

Jay and I have come to depend on our DVR since we moved into the cabin a couple of years ago. Before that watching most of our shows online allowed us the convenience of watching on our schedule, rather than when the networks chose to air the shows.

Current shows
  1. Gotham
  2. Modern Family
  3. Brooklyn 99
  4. Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Recently retired, and still missed shows
  1. Psych
  2. Monk
  3. White Collar

What do you do when you have little or no motivation to post a blog? I want to write. My soul craves it, however dramatic that might sound.

The well, however, is dry. 

I seriously sat down and thought OOh, I'll write about mine and Jay's TV habits. Snoozefest!

While I enjoy my stream of consciousness blog posts, I haven't participated in several weeks. No real reason other than the weekend sneaks up on me before I have time to schedule my posts. Spring time is always a busy season for me, so there is little time once the weekend arrives to blog.

If I wrote about what is truly on my mind, I'd whine about how I need to lose weight for my upcoming cruise, or else how tired I am thanks to seasonal allergies.

I'm going on a cruise in 47 days.
Flowers are blooming, the grass is green, and the sun is shining.

Don't you just feel sooooooooooooooooo sorry for me??
Yeah, didn't think so.

So instead, I'll use these next 3 minutes to pump you for ideas. I'm not currently in training for anything, so those posts would be boring, not to mention a lack of race reports in my future. I'm doing a lot of reading, but I'm not sure the titles I'm selecting would be of any interest.

While I have taught Bible study a couple of times this year, I'm no closer to starting my own class than the last time I mentioned it. I think my church offers new teacher orientation in May, so I should learn about scheduling and details then. I suppose deep down I'm waiting on them to tell me I'm not Baptist enough to lead a class.

Looking through my photos, I found no flower pictures. Maybe I should do a landscape post each week. Currently my azaleas are blooming beautifully. I only say "my" because they are on the land our house is on. We've certainly done nothing to facilitate their growth. I suppose God, via nature, has a way of making things happen naturally.

And of course, I could always return to blogging about my thankful list. I could certainly stand to focus on the positives more in life. While I feel as if I'm building my gratitude muscle, it certainly could stand a bit more growth.

What am I leaving out? Do you have favorite topics I'm omitting? Do you want to submit questions to have me answer? I'm an open book and you know I'd ask you something about poop if you opened yourself up to my questions.


  1. You poor thing. A cruise, grass, flowers and sun? I think good times are ahead!
    I feel like I've been in a blog funk lately too - I think I need more excitement in my life!

  2. I completely relate to the dry well thing! That's definitely part of my problem these days, so my blog has become a summary of things that happened during the week that I want to remember later on in life. Ya. Boring to anyone but me! Have you looked into any memes or anything that you can link up with?

  3. A cruise AND springtime? I can't feel sorry for you. ;)

    As for inspiration for blogging, I just did a post last week on SITS girls. Maybe it can help?

  4. Let me try again. I suck at coming with post ideas which is why I haven't been writing much lately. I'm no help. I'm just here to say I'm jealous of your cruise, jerk.
