**So this is my second time writing this as my first post vaporized. Ugh. 🙂
Good intentions just sit there in the box with all the other good intentions awaiting their directive that all too often never comes.
I’ve had good intentions to write, to blog, to be more involved online again but that’s all it’s been – just intention. No action.
Truth is, I really haven’t had much to say lately. I open my blog to a clean new post page and stare at it. Nothing comes. Sure there are tons of things I could write about but I just haven’t felt like writing any of it. I haven’t felt compelled to put word to page and hit the publish button. Maybe it’s because I haven’t been feeling well.
I’m finally getting better after being sick for what seems like most of the summer. I went to the doctor last week and am just finishing up my bottle of antibiotics. I got one of my ever-so-lovely-yet-killer sinus infections. With me, they are never easy. They knock me down and keep me there until I get treatment. I should have known better. Normally I get them around April/May – never this late. I felt like my body was fighting something the last several weeks as I just couldn’t get enough sleep and my kettlebell workouts shrank away to nothing. I got in three workouts in three weeks. This is the first week I’ve practiced with them regularly and am getting back in to the “swing” of things. Pun intended. LOL. And it feels good. I’ll have a new kettlebell update in the next few weeks.
I also quit Facebook but then a few days later went back. I hate Facebook but there are friends on there with whom I really hate to lose contact. It’s just that it’s a good/evil sort of thing – Facebook. It’s great for reconnecting but it’s evil in that you learn things about people/friends/family you really wish you NEVER knew. There’s so much drama. People air it ALL out there – infighting, bashing, bad language and all even though they KNOW that children from their family can see it/read it because they too have Facebook accounts (which they should NOT). Anyway, I’m still up in the air regarding Facebook. I’ve spent less and less time on there and I don’t really miss it. What I do miss is email. I miss hearing from people and getting that personal letter and I know that I for one need to email more and write more. It’s a two-way-street.
On a positive note, September – that gateway month to all that is gloriously Autumn – is but a few days away! And you know what that means! It is time for my annual Welcome September blog post! I’m almost giddy with anticipation. Ah if only Autumn could last five or six months – where the days are crispy cool yet sunny, with a brilliantly blue sky overhead and dry so that the fallen leaves crackle with each step you take. Stay tuned. Oh and Brandee, Brandee, Brandee – fear not, I will have my poem to you soon! I have not forgotten! I have more than just good intentions to get that to you!
Happy Saturday everyone! 🙂
