First Baby Steps, then I went into Nesting Mode. And now? I'm ready to Hibernate. I want to bake and plan Thanksgiving & Black Friday, drink hot cocoa and dream about stocking stuffers. I'm ready for winter. It's the tail end of BigDaddy's season and I'm gearing up for the final sigh in a few weeks or so. Then we totally crawl into fetal position, get sick and stay inside under blankets.
But I've also lost my writing MoJo. Seasonal food isn't so fun to talk about now, I'm not fired up about my Victory Garden (it's looking very sad and I need to winterize ASAP) and I canned a whole three jars worth of tomatoes. I still feel like I need to figure out my way in the day. And my on-line time is pretty limited when I'm falling asleep with BigBoy at 8:00, exhausted from being a volleyball widow/sick kid caregiver/ school volunteer. Seems like insomnia = lots of writing time. go figure.
I need to simplify. Scale back. Focus on the family and get back to basics. One thing I can cut back on is this little slice of blogosphere. Not that I'm writing much anyway- other than a handful of half-written posts that I've yet to publish. I'm left with yet another thing dangling on my To-Do list and then feeling behind that I haven't posted. So it's time to hibernate for the winter. Close up shop for the season and hang up my blogger hat.
Come Springtime, I promise to have lots of MoJo from the cocoa.
