About Me

My Photo
My real life is a lot like THS (True Hollywood Story) except there's no fame, fortune, or drug addiction. Instead, I'm happily married, have two children, and a dog who's prone to barfing at 3 am. I love them all, but I also have to run away from them every day. I always run back, though.

Back...Kind Of

Unless ill or out of town, I have rarely gone a week between blog posts, but this past week seemed to just get away from me.  Several things coalesced, and I just didn't have the time/energy/motivation/right frame of mind to blog.  But, as is the case, things always seem to right themselves with a little time, and I'm starting this week by feeling more grounded and a little less crazy.

However, while the Jess-life has resumed its version of normality, I still find I'm struggling to find blog material.  I'm running, but nothing seems all that noteworthy about it.  I always think it's lame when bloggers blog about having nothing to say, but that's what I'm sayin', yo.

I'm not sure if I'm just experiencing a temporary blogger-block, or if this trend speaks to my larger lethargy with blogging in general.  Let's just say that I'm feeling ambivalent about the interweb as of late, and that my real life demands seem to outweigh my desire to invest in the blog demands.

My feelings about that could change overnight (this is not the first time I've felt such apathy toward blogging), so I'm not saying anything definitive about my spotty presence here.  I'm just saying: My blog is like a boyfriend I'm kind of cooling toward.  Maybe he'll surprise me, unexpectedly, with some sense of significance, but right now, I feel like creating a little distance.

Just like you listen to your body in running, you have to listen to your heart (mind?) in blogging. There's certainly no reason to force it.

I agree with Marlene! Although you always make me laugh and you have been missed!

It's cool, yo. Post when you want to post! I'm always impressed when moms with young kids are able to blog. I don't know if I could do it.

I'll be in your hood (well, Pompano Beach) this weekend. 90th birthday party. Fun times.

I started a post about my favourites on Fridays. You could do something like that. If you think about it there are a lot of things you need for running or motherhood that can be interesting.
You're an English prof. Write when you're inspired and we'll all be here, ready and waiting.

Just think, thanksgiving is around the corner with all of the turkey trots and cute baby pictures to post about. There is content out there. You didn't suddenly become less awesome did you?

I didn't think so.

I get it. Take a break. Don't feel obligated to post. Think of some funny stuff to tell us!

I think Wes hit the nail - you need to drink and blog more. ;o)

Hope your blogging slump ends soon. I'd miss the poop stories.
