I can’t seem to muster up the motivation to write much today.
I have a bunch of things in my drafts folder, but nothing feels right and I don’t have the patience or creativity to finish any of those posts right now.
We have a work event this weekend & my house is a total wreck (for no good reason at all) & I’ve been sleeping terribly. And that’s what’s new in my world, lol. (I hate when people whine and complain 24/7 and I realize that’s kind of what I’m doing…)
I’m also incredibly pissed and frustrated and saddened and outraged every time I open Twitter or Facebook… so there’s that, too.
I’m in need of a little hibernation (which I won’t be getting this weekend or next), isolation, cold weather (LOL), and relaxation. I’m anticipating none of those things, but I’m trying to chill a little each night after work to pitifully charge my little battery.
(Like on the SIMS when their “fun” bar is running low but between sleep, work, and socializing you just can’t find the time to let Susan stand at the easel and paint for a few gosh dang minutes.) (No? Just me with that wacky comparison.)
I feel like I’m a little derailed today. Sorry.
All that to say I actually have nothing to say. So I’ll leave you with a few other blogs to visit that will most certainly have better content than me today:
- Emma visits the most beautiful places and Hever Castle might be one of my favorites. (Nothing at all to do with my Tudor obsession…)
- Last weekend was sh*tty and heavy and so avoidable in my opinion. Lindsay says it well in her post this week.
- Take a break. Cry it out. Anxiety sucks and Emelia‘s openness with her anxiety is such a brave testimony to the pressures we’ve all felt.
- I am truly feeling Chelsea‘s lessons from July. She always shares a few lessons each month & encourages her reader to, too!
- Julie‘s stroller reviews, Kristen‘s circuit tutorial, and Steph‘s wedding advice all win for “Most Helpful Posts Ever.”
- I am still laughing SO HARD at Amanda‘s horror story from her most recent vacation.
- And last but not least, Steph‘s take on her worn-in kind of love is so honest and beautiful. Definitely worth a read!
Tell me about your weekend plans!

I am feeling totally unmotivated lately as well. I’ve been meaning to write a summary post of how I did with plastic-free July but I can’t summon up the energy to even start it. My flat is also a total wreck and Jan informed me on Tuesday that someone from his choir needs a place to stay on Saturday night after their rehearsal so now I have to get the place in a fit state for visitors. The spare room is still full of stuff that was moved in there for the renovation so that will be fun! Umm, what were you saying about people whining and complaining all the time? Oops.
Hahaha- I understand. I hate traveling when the house is a wreck, especially when the dog sitter stays. I tried to quick-clean for last weekend’s trip but we have another coming up and I refuse to let her stay in a pig pen. I’ll probably do a deep(er) clean this week so there’s slightly less dog hair and dirt. (And don’t even get me started on the dogs needing baths. YIKES.)
Oh my goodness how much fun were the Sims! I forgot about them but when I was in my late teens/early 20’s it was such a cool pc game. Haha at the easel! I remember a chess board too!
I LOVED playing the Sims! I still do but don’t usually have access to a computer with a CD drive. The original was the very best 🙂

This is like a Seinfeld episode – its a blog post about not having a blog post 🙂 LOL Or is this like Inception – either way, just love your honest talking. no actual “blog form’ need apply 🙂
Ha, you’re right! I didn’t want to go radio silent that day so I waxed poetically about nothing and then tried to share some worthwhile stuff. LOL
Oh I hadn’t read worn in love. Loved t hat. Thanks for sharing!
I have found it hard to blog since 2016. I would like to spend all day every day fighting for what’s right and part of that for me (and for you I’m sure as well) is writing about it but there comes a point when it is such a drain to try to find a new way to say the same shit over and over and over. I can’t imagine when people with less privilege than me have to live that day in and day out. At the end of the day it’s all exhausting when added to regular life stuff. Facebook and twitter are minefields.
Be human. Act right. Stop being a hateful hypocrite. All that and more.
Yep. I feel bad being silent- even when it’s only to recover from being loud and outspoken- because there are so many that cannot remain silent or take a break like that. And while I love writing here, I feel torn to write about how we can fix the world and also what books I’m reading and what I purchased on Amazon. It’s just tough to strike the balance and not let myself get totally drained. It definitely adds a layer of guilt and second-guessing to the “fun” posts. But they’re still needed, right?
Why people can’t just act right is so beyond me.
I totally understand this feeling! Sometimes you have a lot to say, and sometimes it’s hard to even figure out how you feel. I’m still happy you posted!
Thank you SO much for sharing my post! It makes me feel so good knowing that all the effort we put into blogging can help someone or bring people together =D
Blogging is one of my favorite outlets but it can be tiring and daunting, too. Funny how that works. You’re welcome! I’m in awe of what you do with your cricut!!
I’ve been feeling some blogging slumps too lately. Summer is less inspiring for me and my writing I feel like. Come on, fall!
Thank you for the shout-out! ❤
I agree completely. I find spring to be the worst time for me. I definitely feel more motivated in the fall and winter!!
I hope you find time here and there to recharge. It sucks when you’re just feeling worn down – physically, mentally, emotionally. Anything on the news is pretty much garbage these days and it makes me sad/mad/confused/all sorts of things.
I hope this weekend goes well! Thanks for sharing these posts.
Thank you! I’ve been spending lots of time with my nose in a book. Our weekends have been busy but K and I have been together through them so it’s nice to have some me-time at night to just unplug & read 🙂 The news is COMPLETE garbage. It’s tough to surround yourself with other things but 100% necessary!
A good dose of hibernation is good every now and again. Im sure the weather will cool down soon and then you’ll have no choice hehe. Sending hugs.
I agree completely!
Ahhhh- I cannot wait for those cool temps 🙂 I am a polar bear at heart.
Thanks for sharing my post, friend. It’s been a long week!
It sure freaking has!
I hear you. I have lots to say too but lack the energy to write about it because it’s draining. And I’m tired. And I shouldn’t have to write about because for Christ’s sake – being kind and generous and compassionate human beings shouldn’t be that damn difficult, ya know? But here we are. And we need to take care of ourselves so we can continue to fight the battles that need to be fought. So your daughter can live in a better world.
Ugh. Yes yes yes. And sometimes, here in this space, I feel like I’m just preaching to the choir. I know my bloggy friends are good people who fight the good fight. But dang… there’s so much BAD to speak out against in this world. And my daughter is going to learn quickly that silence is not an option.
Ughh I can totally relate to feeling like that, and I hope you get some time “at that easel to paint some art” soon (LOL SIMS, YES YES). And that was so kind of you to link to my ramblingggg stroller post!! Haha 🙂
Sims is the BEST game ever. I still believe that. Lol!! Your stroller post was so helpful! I think a lot of moms (and moms-to-be) would find it helpful, too!
Thank you, thank you for the lovely shoutout!
Of course! ❤ 🙂
