So I may not have been 100% truthful with you all.
Yes, every weekend since the move has been busy with family get togethers, home improvement projects, and catching up on work. But it hasn't been so busy that my blogging has had to fall so far behind.
This may seem like whining. Bear with me. Lately, I've been feeling like the blog isn't really anything worth looking at. Yes, my dogs are beyond the point of adorable, and sometimes I dress myself for $25, but I feel like what I have put out there is so... boring. I try to put together colorful outfits and find fun things to write about, but I just feel so tapped out. I feel like what I put out there is clogging up the blogosphere, taking up room on the Internet that should be reserved for someone brilliantly creative with fabulous photography skills and a kick ass home.
I am still on the hunt for some key pieces to the house, which is why I haven't quite managed to put together home photos. Colorful throw pillows, painted chairs and refinished headboards are filling my dreams and torturing my thrift hunts. The other day, I went to 7 furniture or clothing thrift stores, yes, 7, and came home with a single skirt. I'm ashamed. I have been beating myself up over the little details that haven't happened yet, and it's stalling my progress overall.
I'm deadlocked and can't really seem to move forward. I struggle to think of creative topics, great photo ops or funny stories, and I end up spending all weekend running around for other life issues and completely forget about blog responsibilities. I so badly want to return to my little place on the Internet, but can't seem to feel at home here anymore. Maybe I just need to give myself some grace, but right now I can't seem to give myself, or anyone else that matter, much thought.
I'm going to write this up as a trip to the blogging doldrums and move on, making an attempt to spruce things up a bit. Maybe this is what happens when I spend too much of my time looking at the creations and talents of others, instead of exploring what I have to offer. I have felt so inadequate lately, and hope that it turns around soon.
