No.... I don't think so. I just.....forget to blog sometimes.

Back in the day, when blogs seemed to be REALLY popular, I blogged every day.

Every. Single. Day.

Now? Well, sometimes I think to blog something....then decide that you, my reader, won't care.

Sometimes, I can't think of anything to blog.

Sometimes, I don't want to.

Sometimes, I just don't have time.

In almost all instances, more time goes by between each post. It is not intentional..... time..... just gets away from me.

I have, for the most part, been in a good place. I am OK doing laundry. (Meaning it doesn't bother me NEAR what it used to.) Yes, I still get behind in my laundry, but I don't mind schleppin' in 15 loads to fold, hang, and put away in a day.... or two..... which is where I am now. :-) I have spent the last day taking care of the clean clothes. Now, I need to hang a few more....AND..... start over....with about 10 loads that need to be washed. LOL! It never ends.

I have started going to the gym.... again. I don't mind lifting weights, but all else, I truly dislike. I am jealous of the folks who actually enjoy working out. But, I do it because it makes me feel like I've accomplished something positive.

I haven't been cooking/baking like I like. :-( One of my personal failures, I guess. It is a time thing, though. It is therapy for me..... I need to get back into it.

I haven't been reading like I used to, or want to. A few years ago, I read about 45 books, I think. Last year? Maybe 15? This year? I have read.... hmmmm.... 2, so far? Sad. Just sad.

I have been reading that blog that I probably shouldn't be reading. Why? Remember? I told you it was like a train wreck. It is hard to turn away. Yes, I will admit....it DOES make me think about some things. And, if you don't know me that well, you probably don't realize that I can go from zero to "scariest environment imaginable" in about 4 seconds - flat.

I have been feeling extremely disappointed in people. I like things "just so." I'm sure that is no fat surprise. But, I really get worked up when things don't happen the way they should.

Yes, I understand that that is a somewhat subjective statement. But, some things are understood, as a sense of courtesy. I guess that is what I'm missing. COMMON COURTESY! (That is why my hubby doesn't let me out of the house unsupervised. LOL!)

I need to learn to not be a perfectionist. Believe me.... I am NOT a perfectionist in all things, nor am I OCD. But, as stated above, there are some things I like "just so." And, it is in ridiculous stuff. Maddening things! For example....I love "The Little House on the Prairie." I record them. I have seen most of them. I MUST watch them in order. BUT, I won't watch the other stuff I record until I have watched a certain amount of LHOTP.


Are you tired of my belly-achin'?

I am.

Sorry.... just feelin' a bit melancholy.

I think.

Let me go look it up real quick.

OK.... so maybe not quite so severe, but it's close.

I feel like Eeyore.

LOL, Giiiiiirl, you sound JUST like me. :} I could've easily written this piece, too. What is it lately??

I'm pretty laid back about most things, but like you said, there are certain things I expect "just so." I totally get what you're talking about. Unfortunately, a lot of things are not happening "just so."

Did we lose control? I refuse to believe that. LOL.

Hope tomorrow is a better day for us, more like the days we expect. : )

I've been trying to discipline myself to do some fun things for exercise such wii and zumba. It dawned on me recently that I may have forgotten how to have fun, and I have even turned the care of myself into hard labor.
