I’m typing this blog post because I simply MUST blog. I haven’t blogged since September and I haven’t written anything since then either. How can this be? How can time go so quickly? I don’t have any special pictures for this post. Or any special message or goal here. I just want to write for about five minutes and push “publish.” To emit some sort of life from my little corner of the world.
It’s raining. It’s been such a rainy fall. And beautiful.
As I write this, Bronwyn is in my lap and nursing. I just finished paying bills and I’m about to make Bryce’s lunch for school. After that, I will dig through the clean laundry that’s not yet put away to find clothes for the boys and get them dressed for the day.
I sound pitiful, but I’m not. Just in one of those moods in which I feel like I’m getting nothing accomplished from day to day. I think you know what I mean. I haven’t been reading, writing, or knitting. But I have been doing a lot of hand sewing, which is painstaking and probably not the best for a person who is results oriented. Even so, I look forward to picking up that project every day, even if I’m only able to make three stitches before I’m pulled away.
National Novel Writing Month started yesterday and I considered hopping aboard. But I know myself – I’m not in a place where I can commit to anything, much less 50,000 words in 30 days!
See? I said I had no plan, no special pictures, nothing. Just a quick check in as I sort my thoughts and try to set some goals (?) for the day. I miss my blogging friends and I miss putting my fingers on the keys. I hope I can find some sort of writing routine soon. xo
