Blogging Burnout

Lately, I just haven't felt like blogging. At all. Ever again.. . I'm not sure why, but I'm noticing lots of other people aren't blogging right now either. Maybe it's just summer. A few things definitely contributed to my ennui:
Blogger keeps failing, so I tried to start a Wordpress blog. But I just don't have the energy to learn a whole new system. Then I tried to turn the blog I have into a book using Blurb. It would be an $85 book... I can compress it and make it cost much less, and look better, but again, who feels like spending that much time on the computer in summer?...Fall is going to be utter chaos with appointments and classes. And, there has been a life changing something in our lives that is taking up all of my consciousness. We are ok, and maybe someday I'll be able to talk about it, but for now, wow. Blogging seems... oh, just too much.
I do so love having the blog to look back at though, so hopefully I'll get my act together in time to blog first grade.
We've definitely been busy. But I have no pictures to prove it... Sigh. What a slacker. We've tried lots of art projects. We've spent time with friends, and time outdoors. We've baked and baked and baked. (And gained and gained and gained weight!) Crumpet appears to have chicken pox. The fact that yeast is alive has clicked with him, and he's beginning to boycott bread products. Oh man, I should have known better. He had a pet cockroach for a day, and then it died. And he was devastated. We replanted the garden. We have the most adorable baby cardinals coming to our feeder. We have our sweet little dog friend staying for the summer, and we are all totally in love. The house is filthy. And we do a bit of school most days and it's going well.
So yes, we're still here, but we don't feel like talking about it! ;0
I'm still enjoying reading everyone's blogs though, even if I'm not commenting. Enjoy the rest of your summer!


  1. That's a lot going on all at once.

    Well, I look forward to when you're up to blogging once again.

  2. I am missing my non-blogging friends. I hope the funk will pass soon and whatever troubling you will pass too. (Hugs)
