Alright, I think I’ve used up all my morning cheerfulness and energy on that greeting so I’ll go back to my groggy, sniffling state — aren’t you glad we’re having coffee via the internet today? I appear to be suffering from a cold (think I’ve been fighting it all week), and Midnight Monster did his best to ensure that I was out of bed after the minimal amount of sleeping in (judging by his current location it was entirely so that he could monopolize the bed for himself).
I’ve been out of blogging for a few weeks now, and am still trying to figure out what I want it to look like as I move forward. My current goal is to keep up with my “regular” posts (Insecure Writers Support Group, Passionate Geeks, Coffee Share, the occasional Three Things Thursday), but I do have some ideas for other posts I’d like to share, and there are certainly some other things I want to talk about here – a few upcoming blog-hops that I’m planning on participating in, and the like. It’s all just a matter of getting myself to really stick with a schedule – not just a blog schedule but a life schedule. I work a full time job, with a decent-length commute on either end, and lately I just haven’t had the energy to do all the things that I want to do with the rest of my time! I have to figure out how to make myself do the things I want to do in the time I do have. More often than not I end up zoning out at reruns on the computer and don’t make progress in anything at all — and I’m really not okay with that.
Anyone have good tactics they use to help them get past that “ugh, I’m tired from a long day” feeling to accomplish things?
Not a whole lot else going on right now – just a huge to-do-list of things I want to get done this weekend, plus the intention to spend some time sleeping, reading, and relaxing. I had a great time over the past month with some of my favorite kiddo’s, enjoyed a great camping trip up at Waldo Lake, and continued to try wrangling the Midnight Monster (he’s got his own hashtag on Instagram – #MidnightMonsterCat – it’s been kind of fun to create posts around him and his craziness).
My brain is pretty well blanking so I think it might be time for some reading or napping — I’ve been up for an hour and a half, that’s long enough to justify “nap-time”…. right?
How are you doing today? What is your September starting out like?
