Folks, I am stumped. I am in a very serious blogging rut. I have NOTHING to talk/write about. I guess that's what happens when life is going smoothly, and you are blissfully happy...you don't want to blog, you want to live your life.
In the past this blog has been my outlet, my place to vent and talk about my frustrations, and my sorrows.
Well, can I just say that for the past month I have felt absolutely FANTASTIC! Lord bless radioactive iodine! And Synthroid.
I'm feeling so good, in fact, that I'm almost euphoric. All. The. Time. Since I last wrote, I have totally cleaned out my house--a bunch of times, sold two of my TV's, almost sold my entertainment center (anyone want it?), purchased and installed 2 new flat screen TV's, read 4 1/2 books, spent time with my family, exercised almost everyday, gained 5 pounds (that's a good thing), put on some muscle (a little bit), ran--albeit very slowly (I got up to 4 miles on Saturday...I did it in an hour, but I did it!)
So, sorry, if you all feel neglected, but I'm just so happy, I need to be out living and loving. I'll try to be better at blogging, but I doubt I'll get to it much more than once a week from now on.
I am definitely open to lunches and phone calls, though. Feel free to shower me with those!
As I've been thinking over the past week about what I could write about, a thought crossed my mind. There's an interesting phenomenon I've discovered. And it applies to a lot of things.
The more chocolate you eat, the more you want.
The more Coke you drink, the more you want.
The more Sex you have, the more you want it.
The more you exercise, the more you want to.
The more you blog, the more you want to.
And the more you write, the more stuff you have to write about.
I've been thinking about this phenomenon, trying to figure out why I've completely lost my desire to blog. And I've decided this has to be it. I weaned myself off, and I no longer have the craving. I've struggled the same with exercise. I went almost 6 months during which I didn't do much more that sit in bed and sulk, and I lost my drive to exercise. But, all it takes is a dose of those blessed, delicious endorphins, and I'm back. Even though it does hurt to start up again. Oh. So. Bad.
I think I just needed to log in, and start typing, and wait for the words to roll off my fingers.
It's totally working, already.
I have a tough conundrum, and I need your help with it.
I'm sure you know about the CBC. You know, the Casual Blogger Conference, being put on by MMB.
Are you SOOOOO excited?!!
Well, I was asked to be in charge of entertainment for the event. I feel so honored! And of course, you know the person who would be at the top of that list to entertain you--Me! What an awesome opportunity to share my music with all of you! Of course, there will be other entertainers there as well. Any requests? (within reason--reason being somebody I have access to in Utah)
Here's where my dilemma comes in.
The conference is scheduled for May 28, 29th. Memorial Day Weekend. Great!
My Anniversary is on May 26th. Not just any anniversary, but our 10 year Anniversary. And my husband's company sends him to Indianapolis every year to take customers to the Indy 500. He will be going.
So, do I skip the conference, and go to Indy with my hubby, and celebrate our 10th anniversary with a free trip? Or do I blow off the love of my life, to participate in the opportunity of a lifetime to play my music live for all of my favorite bloggers?
The thought has crossed my mind that I could come play at the Friday night social, and hop on a flight first thing Saturday morning.
What do you think?? Help me!!
I got a new Ipod for Christmas! An ipod touch! (My hubby got it for free from work, so it was a no brainer that's what he should get me for Christmas).
So, of course, I have downloaded a ton of new songs (and imported all of my CD's).....
...so here's my random 10 list.
1. God Bless The Child - Shania Twain
2. Por Que No? - Laura Pausini
3. We Might As Well Be Strangers - Keane
4. Tonight She Comes - The Cars
5. Enchantment - Corrine Bailey Rae
6. I'm Sensitive - Jewel
7. California Song - Brooke White
8. Stop! In the Name of the Love - Jonell Mosser
9. Daughters - Sherrie Shepherd (did you know my whole album is available on iTunes?)
10. Shower the People - James Taylor
Bonus: Con Te Partiro - Andrea Bocelli
p.s. I am still working on a giveaway, so those of you who offered to donate, I hope the offer is still good. It'll be coming, as soon as i get around to it.
