Stuffed Brain

Writing helps me think.  Writing helps me solve problems.  Writing helps me wind down. Writing helps keep me sane.  (Or at least helps me fake sanity.)

My blogging recently has been shallow.  There are all sorts of topics I want to write about, but they would take time.  It doesn't take long to write, but it does take time to think things through before writing them.  And I don't have time to think these days.  (No time to think?  Gasp!)  And then ideas sit in my mind, piling up, befuddling me, being jumbled with other piles-of-ideas.  And it all leaves my blog in a boring state, t'boot.

Y'know how you feel so much better after you've cleared the kitchen counters, or cleaned the bedroom, or organized that closet?  Getting rid of clutter feels great!  Well, I could use a week with no responsibilities except for straightening out my brain. After all, clutter there needs to be thinned and put in order too.


  1. I don't think your blog is boring.

  2. I don't think it's boring, either. And I understand what you're going through. This job of mine is keeping busy day in and out, and does not allow my brain to think. (Which is ironic, as I'm trying to help facilitate thinking for these kids!) But I have summer vacation to look forward to (two weeks...) Is there any possibility of you taking a week off this summer? Or even just a long weekend? We all need to recharge, and a weekend isn't enough.

  3. Both of you, thanks.
    As for a week off, the only time off this summer will be a family reunion, and it will be busy in its own way -- full of visiting and activities and oodles of fun. But thinking time and sheer rest? Nah....
