I’ll Be Baaaack…

My lack of inspiration and motivation has become ridiculous. It’s that unfortunate time of year when most of us get to feeling a little down, people with Seasonal Affective Disorder (and what an appropriate acronym THAT is!) start wishing for the longer, sunnier days of summer, and I start to find myself having to fight harder against my depression than I do most of the year. I’m not going to get a doctor (and I should really find one here) to increase my effexor dose again- the SS Side Effects has sailed, my friends, and I’m not going to chase it down to re-board at another port*. That leaves me with a few options, but without immedeate results.

I need more fresh air and sunlight. I need WAY more exercise than I’m getting, and I need more and better sleep than I’ve had in the last… well, more than 3 years, anyway. If thinking about solutions could solve my problem, thngs would be great, but finding time to do any of this stuff is more than a bit of a challenge.

To say my posting around here has been irregular lately is a bit of an understatement- I find myself with little to write about and even less motivation to write about what there is. I’ve been better about AIHE, but even that’s inconsistent, and I’m going to be dropping back to 3 posts a week on there- and don’t I just hope I can find something other than my little daily accomplishments to write about there! I love my kids, wouldn’t trade ’em for anything, but they do take up a lot of a gal’s time and energy!

It’s not like masses of people will notice if things slow down around here for a while. Consider this semi-hibernation… I’ll be poking my nose out of the cave every now and then, but that’s it.

Wish me luck with the other stuff.



wow… could I have styretched THAT tired metaphor a little further? (farther?)


It’s been a while, I know. I don’t know what the problem is these days- I just have little to no desire to write- even my paper journal’s suffering, and I never used tt miss a day. Post-holidays mood dip? Possibly, though I’m just as glad we have all of that travelling and whatnot out of the way.  My mood’s been pretty stable lately, if not super-duper. I know I should be getting more exercise to help with that, but when, I ask you- when?

I’m not the only one having blog-related issues- my dear Anne Nahm claims she’s going through a slump right now. If my slumps were as funny as hers, I’d be happy. This may be why she has readers, though. 🙂

So, how was your Christmas? Our actual Christmas was great- it was getting there and back that sucked harder than a Dyson. My friends, I don’t think I have the energy to even go into details here, even if it might be entertaining for anyone who wasn’t there. Give me a few weeks (or months) to get a better perspctive on the funny side of everything- if there is one. As of right now, even though we had fun in Florida and it was great to see AJ’s family, it wasn’t worth all of that hassle. Also, I miss WestJet, and Air Canada can shove their unhelpful “customer service” folks up their corporate bum.

Like I said, I may need time to get past this…

I’ve got this 10-month old one-man demolition crew patting my lap here and trying to push all of the buttons on this keyboard- I guess he thinks it’s time for me to get off the damn computer and play with him already. He’s probably right.
