Glad I didn't NaBloPoMo this month

Why I’m not posting as much:

1. Our Internet service is on. Then it’s off. Then it’s back on again. Then it’s on but really, really slow.  What’s up with that, Wide Open West?

2. My free, uninterrupted time is on. Then it’s off. Then it’s back on again for a second. Then it’s off. By the time I have free time again, I’m really, really slow.

3. All my good post ideas come to me at the most inappropriate moments. One day, I wrote the idea in pen on my bare thigh. Another day, I scribbled it with my right hand while my left hand steered the car down the expressway. Another day I tried to write a post on toilet paper.  I  can’t figure out what “whe whit xhxik. shee. I hoo gon tably aa vaie” means.  I’m sure it’s something brilliant.

4. Lately, I’d rather be trying to reverse the signs of aging with restorative sleep and reverse the effects of eating with heavy-duty exercise. Also, I have a lot of stuff simmering on the back burners but lack the cojones to publish. Maybe soon.

  1. “whe whit xhxik. shee. I hoo gon tably aa vaie” Oh yes, that does sound brilliant indeed! HA! My ideas also come at the worst time possible. Usually when I am driving. By the time I get home any genius idea has been deleted from my brain. Oh, and exercise and sleeping well are absolutely essential. I hope you find the cojones to hit publish soon!

  2. Molly:I have them; they’re just “cold.”
    Meleah: Even Google Translate had trouble with that passage. The brilliance is lost forever, I suppose.
    TeacherMommy: I hate it when I can’t write what I really want to write. It’s worse than constipation. ( I sent you an e-mail.)

  3. Okay, you and I need to talk. First: regarding the comment you left on my Bittersweet book review about the memoir that you want to write some day. I’ve been writing one myself — just a few pages. It would be sooo interesting to compare notes/experiences.

    Secondly, regarding your post below — four years turned into ten (TEN!)and now I’m trying to go back to work. Ugh. It’s overwhelming. I feel exactly as you do below. If we weren’t so darn broke, I’d really enjoy this gig. Meanwhile, in an effort to procrastinate, I started another blog about going back to work. It’s silly, but I swear, going back to work is a tough one.
    Meanwhile, whatever posts you got cooking, please share soon. Be brave. Let ‘er rip.

  4. Small Town: Since we both reside inside the Mitten, some day we’ll have to meet, perhaps somewhere around the ring or middle finger? I’ll have to check out your other, other blog.
