Yep. I’ve Got Nothing.

I don’t know why it happens.  But it does.

I occasionally reach a point in my writing journey where I don’t have anything to say.

I’m there. Right now.

I can’t write another post about how busy my life is.  Because it doesn’t seem to be making it any less busy.

I can’t write another post about my teenager.  He’s getting sick of being the focus and runs when he sees the camera.

I can’t write another post about my tweenager either.  Because it might make her cry. Or laugh.  Or both – crazy hormones.

I can’t write another post about my RedDog because we’re going through a rough spot right now and he needs my actual attention, not my virtual attention.

I can’t write another post about my baby.  Because today he has the runs.  And the runs + a potty training child = fifteen pairs of underwear in a day.

I can’t write another post about my Hubby because we are ships passing in the night. Unless you like posts that read: “I passed a ship last night.”

I can’t write another post about me either. Because I’m getting a little sick of me.  Aren’t you?

So I’m going to take a break.  And I’m going to work on Halloween costumes.  And baking goodies for people. And cleaning out a few closets. And raking leaves. And roasting some marshmallows.  And working on being more kind and attentive to my children and husband.

I don’t know when I’ll be back.  I just know I have nothing to say right now and I feel perfectly happy about it.

Happy October.

I will never be sick of you.

I completely understand your post. There are many days where I think I should post something on FB and I can't think of a thing to say...and that's only one sentence.

Enjoy your time with those important five!

I will keep checking in on my favorite blogger patiently waiting for you to write again.

Until then, do what you need to do.

I think it is great that you recognize the need to spend your time and energy on other things especially your family and are willing to do so.

Enjoy the break while you fill your blog writing lamp with oil. I'll look forward to the time when your muse returns.

I have been missing your posts, too. I have never found your blog boring; quite the opposite in fact. I hope you enjoy your break. In the meantime, I will be checking back every day to see if you have begun blogging again!
