Writer’s Block

Broken PencilI have three posts actually started with a boatload of ideas in the hopper. BUT, since I’ve gone back to work, I’m finding it extremely difficult to turn on the flow and put what’s in my head down in black and white. It was easy (comparatively, anyway) to do it when I had hours and hours stretching out in front of me. Doing the same thing in a couple of hours is nigh onto impossible.

So…I am going to rethink my goal of three topics a week and do as many as I can in the time I have and let it go at that.

I’ve even separated myself from the forum for a few days. That could have been a mistake. Maybe it’s a source of inspiration. I know it makes me think and that’s essential when it comes to writing my blog posts. DID YOU KNOW THAT?? I’ve set out to take a week off and I won’t be due back there until Sunday. I miss it but it’s kind of like I miss home when I’m on vacation. I know it’s there and it’s a comfort.

This isn’t Friday but I’ll put a couple of personal notes here. I’m almost completely over the Crud I had for the past almost three weeks. I still cough once in awhile but that isn’t surprising. It’s the kind of cough I could have for a long time. For long enough to be scary, the only food I was taking in was citrus juice. I was drinking water, too. I didn’t have any appetite and felt like I really didn’t want to eat. Thoughts like, “Is this anorexia?” were running through my head and my weight dropped to 113 lubs. Hardly anorexic but still quite a bit less than what I’m used to weighing. I’m happy to report that my appetite is back and my weight is beginning to go up, too. I’m sure I’ll be back to my normal 118-120 soon. Which, according to Dr. D. is borderline obese for a 5’3″ female but he isn’t 64 years old, either.

So…that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it. Hopefully, I’ll have something ready for tomorrow night but if I don’t, I don’t. There’s no way I can do justice to three good posts a week (plus a personal) and work fulltime. It isn’t even reasonable to try. I value my health more than that.

Well, folks, I’m taking myself to bed and hope for a good night’s sleep. May you have the same. Good night!
