Absent


I feel absent. I realize the world does not revolve around the workings of the blogosphere (right?), but I admit I have been censoring myself on here. It used to be a place where I would write what I was thinking, clear my air, post pics of the lovely and talented children, show you my wares. But lately, and maybe because I am finding out who is reading this or maybe because I am worried about who is not, I have totally lost my blogging mojo. Duh and double duh.

Maybe it is the lack of time. I have been working on we chirp, something I hope speaks to the hearts and souls of frackin' cool people everywhere. I have orders galore for my plaques (thank you). I have somehow fooled people into thinking that I can sew, make up patterns and teach teenagers how to sew. The sun is finally shining and my dirt is calling me. And oh yeah, those four brown-eyed lovelies I call my peeps. Their neglect is not an option. Well, optional yes, but I try to avoid it.

I'm not Wonder Woman. I don't use my time well, I'm horribly disorganized, my brain is working at about 47% of normal (which, let's face it, I am normally a very smart and witty gal) (and let's face it, I may never be that gal ever again). Wait a minute, I am acting as though I am a total failure. I am so far from a failure. Fail is not my middle name. But I am a bit of a realist.

I am quite verbal. I rarely hold back and on the days when my filter is completely shut off I try to stay in my house, away from phones and far away from any computers. But I also want to be able to attend to this blog and be proud of it. So I am going to try to do a little rediscovery. A little organization of home and brain. Play some catch up and get some air, re-evaluate. And frankly, at the end of the day, I like to sit on the couch with Dave and watch this show. It makes me laugh, we love it around here. Really. Watch it. It's good for you. And the Earth.

Amen and amen. I am going through the exact same thing. Then I heard a similar comment from another friend today. Is something in the air?

Thanks for giving some of my own thoughts a voice.

Come to Mama...

My house, figuratively and literally, isn't in order either and I'm a little lost as to where to start, too. Spring makes me want to clean out all my cobwebs and start all new and shiny. Let's do it together.

c'mon Whit...you have the blogging mojo. Your blog is always a good read. My brain is functioning even less than you, but I have learned to enjoy it. A fully functioning brain is over-rated.
