I keep saying I have writer’s block, but can you really have writer’s block when you aren’t really a writer? Should if be called blogger’s block? Rambler’s block? I need a more accurate phrase. Anyway, I’ve found it hard to come post something this week. There are a variety of things I think could be the cause of this. Part of it is the stress and worry about my mom. Living every day expecting the phone call that she is gone. It makes it hard to really think too hard about other things. It’s much easier to just veg out in front of the TV than to read or write something. The increasing darkness doesn’t help. It is still completely dark when I get out of bed. It’s getting darker earlier so I have less daylight once I get home. I’m going in to hibernation stage where I just want to go home and sit on the couch under a blanket. I love the cool fall weather but I find it hard to adjust to the darkness. I’m also tired of the news. I take a lot of my blog posts from what I read in the news. The news is all Trump v Clinton all the time and I’m really getting tired of it all. I’m ready for this election to be over so we can get back to fun topics like creepy clowns in the woods. I’m tired, stressed and sad. That does not make for a fun blog post. Now I will move away from the whining above and close out by posting some good stuff that is happening:
I downloaded the new Bowling For Soup album last night so I get to listen to new music from my favorite band on my drive to work today.
The Nationals lost last night. This makes me happy. I don’t believe in the nonsense that you an suddenly cheer for your team’s rivals for any reason. I will always be happy when Louisville, the Steelers and the Nationals lose.
My son is doing well in college and seems to really like his major and career path.
My daughter is doing well in high school and will soon be inducted into the National Honor Society.
The Ravens fired Trestman.
Kentucky basketball season starts with Big Blue Madness tonight.
OK, that’s enough positive from me. I don’t want to confuse people too much.
