It's Not You, It's Me

Dear Blog,

I guess I haven't written in a week. Whoa. Sorry about that. Wish I could say I took an exotic vacation or organized my entire house or something, but...uh...what DID I do last week? Pretty much the same ol' stuff minus writing. Hung out with the kids. Did some housework. Did some yardwork.

I kept looking at you from time to time, hoping to have something funny or articulate to say. But nothing really was there... Usually there's a bunch of ideas competing for attention and I'll sit and write for hours if I can get away with it, but last week and right now it's just one big blank "DUHHHHH." Plus, I've been kind of moody lately and I really didn't want to take it out on you. It's not you, dear Blog, it's me. I just need some time to sort stuff out... OH! No, I didn't mean it like THAT. We're not breaking up! I still love you, Blog. We'll be together forever! I just feel like taking a break from writing for a bit. Even the best relationships benefit from some alone time now and then, right? If you love something and set it free, and it returns to you...blah, blah, blah....

No Blog, I wasn't trying to be trite or make fun of you. Sorry again. I really do love you. I just think you'll be better off without my attitude right now. So go play with the other blogs for awhile, and I'll see you in a few. I'm going to continue to leave long wordy comments on other people's blogs and wait until I feel like I have something worth saying...then...I'll be back.

Love,
Beth

P.S. I've heard chocolate does wonderful things to nurture the creative spirit.

You know, if you cut and pasted all your comments on everyone else's blogs, you'd have a neverending supply of blog posts...

just saying.

If you came over to the dark side and became a Twitter Ho like Katdish, you'd have plenty to write about.

Just sayin'.

I didn't realize we were supposed to wait until we had something articulate or witty to post. OOPS!

Rachael Phillips said...

Gee, I feel this way every morning when I sit down to write.

Chocolate definitely helps.

And strawberry pie with lots of Cool Whip.

No writer should be without.

Beth, you don't need to be articulate or witty for us. Getting it written might help. Then again, if what you need is a break, we get that. I am glad you are still commenting. I love to read what you say.

Beth,
All is forgiven. You put me in time out, went off and did some fun stuff. That gave me a lot of time to think about how I've dominated your life, sometimes to the detriment of your family. But I think I've had enough time-out time and you need to come back. Please? Pleeeeeeeease!

Fine. Whatever. I don't care.

Pleeeeeeeeeeeease!

Dear Blog,

Now where did you learn a fancy word like "detriment"? No more playing with dictionary.com for you!

And do not fret. I think I'll be back by the end of the week.

Katdish got the first blog comment... Maybe she has learned something from me.

Just sayin'

Hi! I'm Peter, this is my first visit here. I came courtesy of a tweet by some random lady named Helen, I believe.

I like the post, and the blog. I'll be back around to check in again soon!

What were you saying about staying out of the Nut Farm?
