Hello, not much to say

What can I write about? I’m feeling very much like I have nothing to say, so here is my meager offering to my diary.

I did a load of dishes and a load of laundry, swept the kitchen and the mud room, and that’s all I can muster. It’s about 8:30 p.m. and I’m ready for bed. I’ll get up early. I talk myself into going to bed early with “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” I hope it works. It’s not usually my nature to get to bed early, but I am unusually tired.

I need to rise early to make a batch of sugar cookies for the kids at school. We’re celebrating Valentine’s Day tomorrow. I’m realizing at the moment that I have nothing with which to decorate the cookies, so they will be plain Jane. At least I have a heart-shaped cookie cutter. The cookies will be all the healthier, I’m telling myself. Will the kids buy it? Uh-oh, I also just realized I’m not supposed to take home-baked goodies to school. Store-bought only. Great, let’s deprive kids of healthier options, it’s the law. Bring on the artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, and plastic wrapping.

I’ve been having many days in a row of putting my foot in my mouth. I did it again today. What’s with me? Do you have weeks like this? Do you ever ask the good Lord WHY can’t I learn my lesson about [fill in the blank]? Why am I so dull-headed? Geez.

I digress, from nothing, so it’s okay.

I’m emptied of all my not-very-deep thoughts, so now I’ll head to bed. Tomorrow is a new day, which I’m grateful for. I have an evening coffee date with two amazing ladies, one a dear friend, and the other the friend of the dear friend. God bless my sweet husband for getting the kids to bed, all tucked in with a kiss and a prayer.

  1. I’ve gone weeks with that same feeling of “What on earth can I say?”

    I’m finally back to blogging. It took a road trip and time with friends and still more time to figure out that I really need to blog. That it is an important part of keeping myself balanced: writing.

    Even when I have nothing at all to write about! :)

    Blessings,
    Lacy

    Lacy, I’m glad to know you can relate. I recently heard a writer comment that it’s good to “clear your throat” in a writer’s sort of way to get rid of writer’s block — just start writing, even the most mundane or silly thing, and eventually something takes shape.

    I can so relate to this. Sometimes I just have nothing. And other days I’ll sit and write three or four posts. I guess it just depends on my mood and what’s going on in my life.
    Oh, and I stick my foot in my mouth on a regular basis. My family has become accustomed to it. Even if I haven’t.

    Jen,
    I’m thinking of you so much lately. Thanks for all your kind comments on my recent posts. They feel few and far between these days.

    Why did I think I could start a co-op and take a college class along with everything else? I only ask, because I think you can relate. ;)

    I’ll be praying for you feet to stay where they belong. The more we love people the more opportunities we have for growth. Isn’t that comforting? Heh.
