Not Feeling it

Lately I just haven't had it in me to blog. I also realized that according to certain rules I have a sucky blog anyways. I haven't had a Thought for Thursday in ages and I couldn't even muster up a Photostory Friday something I have actually enjoyed doing. I understand that there are things people like reading more than other things. I love a good story and even a bit of sarcasm when I read people blogs. I also like reading about the tedious day to day stuff, because you all know we all go through it from time to time. I say this because I don't try to suck, I try to put out a good story, I try sarcasm, I even try good gramar, and don't catch most of my mistake in the first 4 read throughs. I also know sometimes it gets so busy you skim through and just don't have anything to add. I've been less of a commenter as of late. I don't know why this is all bothering me right now, maybe because J is gone for a week and as lame as I am, the computer is the one place I get a little interaction with adult people. I know I need to get out of this stinking place once and a while but when it can be hard. I am looking forward to dinner with some friends I got back in touch with through facebook.
It has also been a hard week here doing bedtime. I am not a patient persom and sitting in the girl's room listening to her breathe wondering if she is asleep so I can leave is driving me bonkers. I swear she has sonar and can hear the instant my feet hit the stairwell. I am glad I haven't dismantled the crib yet because I had to put her in it the last 2 nights after hours on end of crying and breathing. On the flip side she has been napping glorious naps in my lap in the recliner, it has been nice, getting her to nod into the nap is the hard part.
J left to go deer hunting for the week last night. I have taken time off of work since getting Peanut Butter to daycare in the early ams is not my cup of tea and I have no daycare on the weekend, though I forgot I had asked my mom last year to keep the weekend open. All this time with the girl I realize I don't have a a lot of activities to do. I will have to work on this. I am kicking around going to the Y tonight to play at the water park, but I don't know if I want to brave the cold.

I know how ya feel, sometimes it's really hard to keep up with a blog, lately, I've just putting up anything that comes to mind . . . no matter how mundane. I know it take practice to make something a habit.

Oh I hear ya! This NaBloPoMo thing is kicking my butt. I am starting to feel really drained every time I sit down at the computer. Just too much going on right now.


You asked me what BlogHer is in your comment. It is a big convention for bloggers to get together and learn more about blogging. But for me (since I really don't blog for money) it would be more about meeting all of the bloggy friends I've made over the past year. It would be a big old bloggy party fest. It is in Chicago in July so I was thinking I might be able to go since it is so close. What about you???

I SO know what you mean! Blogging has become a form of self-preservation for me - sometimes I need it, and sometimes I don't . . . some days my Reader can't fill up fast enough to keep me entertained, and other I just hit 'Mark All as Read' because I just don't have the energy.

I hope the week passes quickly - being a single parent is hard . . . especially when it's all you for bedtime! Frank took a week off at the beginning of November - which has meant he has been on-call everyday since . . . the time off was nice, but I got used to it, and now getting back into the swing of having the kids all day, everyday is taking its toll!

I miss the "social" part of blogging. There are people that I enjoyed catching up with (including yourself) everday. Now I haven't even had time to check my email. I hope all is well with you and that the bed time routine gets better!

My favorite posts are the photostory and your scrapbooking posts! Keep em coming (when you are back in the saddle).
