“…don’t say anything at all”. It isn’t exactly that I haven’t had anything nice to say, it is simply that I haven’t had anything to say at all. I’ve had a major case of writer’s block..I’ve have been in the kitchen cooking but every time I think about posting to my blog, something comes up that pulls me away from the computer. Life has been a little crazy lately…the kids went back to school and adjusting from our nice lazy summer schedule to the rigorous schedule of school has not sat well with me. And lets not forget that football season is upon us and that automatically takes away from any blogging on Sunday because in this household, Sundays are for one thing and one thing only….pajamas and football (at least from September through February). And I find myself stretching that excuse to also include Thursdays and Mondays, even if those games are both evening games and technically I could have blogged all day. But since I am suffering from writer’s block, I’ll just go with this reasoning. And if you have clicked on the “About Me” tab on my webpage, you already know that I am very actively involved with Make-A-Wish. I have been busy with many wonderful projects and events within our Chapter. We are in the process of creating an exciting new group of volunteers called Young Professionals. I am very happy and honored to be a part of this group and right now, I have all my fingers and toes crossed that I am selected to be a part of this new group’s Leadership Council. In addition to school and kids, football and Make-A-Wish, my Grandma has had some health issues that I have been attending to while many of our other family members are out of the country on vacation. And family will always come first so when I sit down to blog and my mind is flooded with a hundred other things, I just can’t sit here and write about cooking and food. I’m a little torn as to what to do….should I just give up on the blog or give myself more time for things to slow down a bit? I was, for the past few months, really enjoying the experience of blogging about my trials and errors in the kitchen. But right now, it feels more like an obligation and I feel almost guilty about letting my blog go by the wayside. I’m not a quitter and I don’t like the feeling of knowing that my last blog post was nearly a month ago. But all these other events in my life (ok…maybe not football) are so much more important than what I’ve been cooking in the kitchen and even as I sit down right now to post this, I am distracted by so many other things on my mind and I am at a loss for words. For now, I will leave my blog up and give myself some time to “get back into the swing of things”. But I don’t know if this is the place where I need to be right now. I need to be devoting my time to my kids, their school work and activities, my grandma and her ailing health and my Wish Kids and Make-A-Wish, all of which need my time so much more than this blog does.
