When a month slips away...

Juni Snuggle

Tonight I am tired. Tomorrow I will be up at the school for 13 hours. (Which is a typical Wednesday for this semester.) I am not complaining, simply stating the facts.

With those two facts in mind you may understand that I had no intention of writing a blog post tonight. The only real intentions I had were to check email, eat a fresh baked cookie my sister had for me, and then curl up in bed with my cat. But, then I saw something on Facebook. (After all, Facebook totally counts as checking email, right?) I saw that one of my favorite bloggers Bethany had posted after a long blog break.

At the end of the blog post, Bethany wrote something that inspired me, "...let's start by 'doing' rather than talking about 'doing'."

What Bethany was talking about was the fact that she tried to write a post about why she was away from the blog so long, but then decided instead to just jump right back in and write. It inspired me. Why as a blogger do I feel the need to explain every single time I am away? Sometimes it is good to keep your readers "in the loop", but other times life simply happens. All in all, I was inspired tonight by Bethany's words. 

So, here I am, I am going to start "doing" too. I am going to begin and not give all of the reasons why I haven't been writing as much. Instead I will give highlights from life lately.

-I am nearly done with my Math class and it looks like I may even make an A!

-I'm currently working on a crocheted mermaid doll and look forward to sharing pictures soon.
-I have so many interesting stories that I come home with from experiences with individuals at work.
-Creative Writing has been a really good class for me this semester.
-I will be a bridesmaid in my sweetest friend's wedding in mere weeks!
-My youngest brother is officially taller than me, which means I am officially the shortest in the family. 
-I will most likely use this list to write more in depth blog posts later on.

How are you, blog friends?

For those in the U.S.A., are you looking forward to Thanksgiving?




  1. So happy I could inspire you to "just do it", Sarah! :) Sometimes it's easy to feel like you owe an explanation for every little thing. Even something like canceling a doctor's appointment...I wind up apologizing for several minutes, and listing exactly why I cannot make it. So silly! Most people don't care at all. Life happens. They mostly just care that you're planning to show up again. :)

    It sounds like your life has been busy and fulfilling lately! So glad you sat down and wrote even if you didn't feel like it. :)

    Have a great night!

    PS: Your sleeping kitty is adorable! Mine is in the exact same position right now. :)

    1. Thank you for sharing, Bethany! And, thank you for your kind comment.

      Yes, life is very full and exciting lately.

      P.S. Aren't sleepy kitties splendid? =)

  2. I'm constantly forgetting that I have a blog, or I sit down to write a post and get distracted and never finish it. What a great reminder to just do :)

    1. I can very much identify, Kat. I am glad this post was a great reminder for you. =)

      I hope you had a good Thanksgiving!
