Limerick time

Today’s Me You Health Daily Challenge was to write a limerick. So in light of my last post:

There once was a girl who did blog
Whose inspiration got lost in the fog
So she threw her hands in the air
And said, “I couldn’t create on a dare!”
So she fed all her notes to her dog

I hope it made you chuckle… it did to me!

Have a wonderful Friday, everyone!!

I miss writing

I feel so bad that I’ve just let this blog go in a lot of ways lately. I’ve gone from writing every day to writing a couple days a week. And mostly? I’m just too tired by the end of the day to do it. It’s not a lack of things to write about, its literally just a lack of energy to use the brain power to write.

Tax season is over in two weeks. Which means its time to buckle down and knock it out. Most my mental and emotional energy is going towards that these days. It doesn’t even feel like Easter is this weekend. I have to keep reminding myself that its days away, and that I need to figure out what I am going to make to take to my brother’s house and if I am going to put some eggs together for the Easter Egg Hunt.

Last weekend, I got to see my husband! I really want to write a post just about it here, but I suspect my post for Road Widows will have to be the one that stands. It was so wonderful to see him, and we got to explore a small town and instantly be charmed by it.

Aggie Muster is 17 days away, and I feel like I am bullying people to come to it. But I am passionate about it, and I really want Aggies to be there! But I fear attendance is going to let me down, and if that happens I end up wondering if I’m going to have it in me to organize it again next year. (Oh I know I’ll do it. I figure I’ll do it until either I just absolutely can’t or until someone else demands the chance to do it.)

Stressing about bad weather across the country wears on me as well. Tornadoes break my heart, so even when I’m not affected directly by them, I worry and feel defeated by those strong winds.

All these things have left me just drained, which doesn’t exactly let the writing juices flow. I miss writing regularly! I hope that come May, perhaps that’ll happen. Until then, please have patience with me! I’m still here. I still care. I’m just brain mushy!
