So, it’s been a month

I can’t believe it’s been a month!!!  And I stuck with it!!!  What do you think? How am I doing?  Now, remember, this is for posterity, so do try to be honest. Points for you if you get the movie reference.

I’ve been having a lot of fun doing things like writing about how I’m not like a 1950’s housewife or about the books I am going to read this year.  Coming up with new ideas twice a week has been great for my creativity.  To be honest, until this week I was a month ahead with my writing.  I was doing pretty well if I do say so myself! I still am, even though I am now just a few weeks ahead of the game.

Some days I am able to crank out two or three ideas for blog posts, but they don’t all make it onto the blog. Some days I pick apart and refine a post until it looks nothing like the originally intended post and I either end up scrapping it altogether or I end up loving what it has turned into and posting it anyways.

Some days I sit down to write and the words don’t come at all.  Those are the days I am grateful for the aforementioned backlog of posts.  I have time to overcome the writer’s block!

I’ve been overcoming writer’s block since 2011 when I published my first blog.   I thought I would be a food blogger.  I enjoyed it.  Until I didn’t.

I tried to pick up blogging again last year but felt pressure to actually make good content.  Which is funny, cause I only made four posts over the course of a month.

This time around I figured I would just type about whatever came into my head.  So far it seems to be working for me.  I am enjoying it and you seem to be liking it.

I am hoping to go back to my food blogger roots every once in a while and post a random recipe.  I may even post a book review or two.  We shall see what the future holds.



Day to Day

I am a stay at home, professional, on call, housewife.  The hubs and I have no kids, unless you count the cat.  My mom does so we do.

When I am not being the all around quintessential  1950’s housewife…okay, okay.  No one in their right (or wrong) mind could ever confuse me for a 1950’s housewife.  For starters, I’m sitting here with my purple hair up in a greasy ponytail and no makeup on.  I’m also wearing flannel and Doc Marten’s.  I look like a modern day grunge girl.  That’s my aesthetic.

What?  It makes me happy.

Not the greasy hair part though.  I have to scrub the shower later and I’m not doing that with clean hair.

But I digress.

My day to day life is fairly simple.  Since we recently moved from Memphis, TN to Dallas, TX, I am in the market for a new place of employment.  I spend my morning drinking copious amounts of hot tea and searching for jobs.  After a few hours of that  I make some kind of meal and surf the interwebs for a little while.  And by surf the interwebs I mean I play around on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

This is usually when I decide whether or not its worth it to go outside and pick up food for dinner.  The answer varies on a day to day basis.  I guess kinda want grilled cheese for dinner tonight.  So that means I’m going to the store.

After errand running its chore time.  This is usually dishes.  Possibly laundry.  Maybe a quick run through with the vacuum.   Two people plus one house equals not a lot of chores.  Unless company is coming, then there are all the chores.

Somewhere in my day I eat lunch.  Possibly do a craft.  A craft can be anything from working on my embroidery skills to practicing my hand lettering to making felt Christmas ornaments.   I also make click clackity sounds on the keyboard by typing up a blog post or two…or four.

I like to get ahead.

Then, if we aren’t going out for our evening nourishment, I will cook.  Sometimes its grilled cheese.  Sometimes it’s handmade mac and cheese.  Maybe it’ll be Steak and fresh veg.  It all depends on what is at the store that day, between my local market and the farmers market I go to, I am not hurting for choices.

What do you know, maybe I am a 50’s housewife.



I’ve done this before

I’ve done this before.

Started blogs.

One even went for a few years.  It was about food and how I was loosing 50 pounds.  Spoiler alert, some of them came back.  The pounds, not the blogs.

I like blogging.  I just have this problem of never being able to quite figure out what I like blogging about.

So I will blog about everything…and nothing.  A little bit of this, and a little bit of that.  I’ll shake my creative tree and see what falls out.  Who know, maybe an apple will land on my head, I’ll shout Eureka, and the next theory of relativity will happen?

Yeah, probably not.

At least I will have some fun writing about all the random things that pop into my life.
