The Great Divide

The pace at which I blog has slowed down and I don't like it. I really love blogging. I feel like I have a lot of random things to say and this is a good place to express those thing and use some creativity since I love writing.

Lately, I just don't feel like I have a lot to contribute. I'm failing at losing weight because I can't seem to get my calorie count down. I'm not really doing much of anything outside of work and exercise because of my husband's work schedule. We aren't doing any fertility treatments due to said work schedule so I can't even whine about blood draws and invasive procedures and fertility meds.

The majority of blogs that I read are written by mothers or women that are pregnant....some with their second child. (Stab me in the heart please.) They always have funny things to share or write those monthly letters to their child detailing every milestone that their kid reached. Or just sharing pictures of their kid reading a book upside down or walking in the driveway wearing cute shoes. I have none of that. I guess as a married but childless person, I'm finding that I'm running out of things to blog about. I know after my trip next month to DC and New York, I'll be flooding this blog with pictures and stories and reviews and you will be like "OMG shut up and go back to not blogging because this is horrid, if I wanted to hear about these places I would just go myself." So what, who cares? I'm going to do it anyways. :)

I could write about current worldly events in the news but that would turn into blogging about celebrities that look like lesbian baristas.  I was talking to my mom the other night and she said "are you following the story about that guy, Weiner? That's his name right? It just sounds so...." I stopped her and said "yeah its weird because his last name is WEINER and well, we know what he did." Going into politics anymore makes the room spin and the last thing I want to write or think about is that we are about to go through ANOTHER long Presidential election process. Lord, help us. And by "us" I mean Republicans. Can someone decent please step forward. Sheesh.

So I'm not a mom. I'm not pregnant with my first child and not even close to being pregnant with my second. I don't want to whine too much on the blog but I honestly don't have that much to whine about anyways because nothing is going on in my life. I guess that is a blessing. I'll try not to be depressing as a blogger because well, who wants to read depressing things? I don't. I have actually thought about cleaning up my Google Reader of blogs that make me furrow my brow and shake my head.

Please, don't clean me out of you life. I promise to be interesting again real soon. If there is anything you would like me to blog about, please suggest it in comments. Even if I know nothing about the subject, I'll do some research and make it up as I go along. I have a feeling that's what some bloggers do anyways.

I've been feeling the same way...hopefully it's just a blogging rut. I won't give up on you!

I've been feeling the same way, which is why I haven't had a blog post in forever!! I was better when I made time for it everyday, but lately things have been so busy I just haven't had ANY time! It's good to know I'm not the only one! :-)

So I'm thinking you and I should orchestrate some sort of adventure at some point while I'm in CA. If your hubs is working long hours and mine is far away and we both have no babies or pregnant bellies and nothing to blog about, we should find something exciting to do to fill those holes. Yes?

Really? I blog maybe if I am lucky once a week. I love your blogs. You always have great things to say and they are so funny. I feel you on the pregnancy thing.

I took a blogging break just because life is not all sunshine and roses over here and I got tired of pretending that it was. I blog for me and the kids and that's pretty much it. I hope my blog never makes you sad!
