Friends, I'm sorry I've been such a bad blogger recently.

I honestly have SO many posts going in my head - so many things I want to write down as I reflect on 2011 and move into 2012; BUT, I've had a really hard time getting back in the swing of things this week. 

I was talking to a girlfriend this weekend about how rather than being motivated when I have a lot going on; I get paralyzed.  I can't clean my house because there is too much to clean.  I can't blog because there is too much to write.  I can't lose weight because there is too much to lose.  Etc. etc. etc.

This pretty much sums up my last (oh, I don't know) TEN days:

I want/need a fresh start.  January 1st would have been a natural time for that; but, I just couldn't make it happen.  Instead, I'm thinking of celebrating on January 5th (or 10th) instead.  Maybe then I won't feel so buried... Like I can start at ground level instead of ten feet below.  Maybe.

In the meantime, bear* with me.  I'll have Midweek Confessions up tomorrow (promise), and I hope you'll come join in.   Until then, I'll be digging...


  1. I read a blog post recently about "not feeling it" and it really resonated with me. You're just not feelin' it right now - and that is ok!

  2. (Bear with me, I think, not bare with me, but I'm not totally sure - you are the English teacher, after all.)

    Anyway, I hear you. I've been "paralyzed," too, when it comes to figuring out how to do sub plans for two months of high school teaching and what I actually need to do in my house to be "baby ready." I've lived a little like an ostrich, with my head in the sand, ignoring because it's easier then tackling.

    One small thing at a time, right, leads us to movement and forward progress? Here's a post about being paralyzed, which is a step forward. :) No guilty feelings needed here - let's just keep going one small step at a time.

  3. hang in there!!! remember, every day is a NEW day, and you can start the change when you are ready!!!!

  4. I do the exact same thing. Procrastinate until it becomes completely unbearable. I just wish I could speak my posts when I think of them in the car. That way I'd have everything documented.

  5. I feel the same way! Breaking down the big things into bite sized tasks is a good strategy, but I'd be lying if I said it worked for me all the time!

  6. That proverb sums up my life perfectly most of the time!!

  7. I feel like I did the same thing with my new year....it took me a few days to get started and switch gears...don't sweat it!

  8. I am the same way. I get totally paralyzed then my husband can't figure out why I'm laying around when the house is a total mess!

  9. I just posted the same saying today! So funny. I know the buried feeling all too often, unfortunately. Hugs!
