Life in general

How is your life….do you find yourself ….well….I’m not quite sure how to say it…but basically having to force yourself to keep moving? Maybe the saying “mind over matter” would work well here.

We are now in the sixth week of ‘staying-at-home’ I think…and sometimes, it feels like it’s dragggggging by ever so slowly. (at other times, it feels like no time at all, but this week hasn’t been one of those times)

I feel like I should have all the time in the world to read right now. Our basic schedule remains – eating, sleeping, spending time together, making sure the girls get their schooling done….and of course the other basic daily needs…but sometimes, it all just runs together….and I feel like doing nothing.

I try to read a book and then set it down again because it’s not holding my interest.

Life seems decidedly uninteresting.


Have you ever had one of those days?

I’m glad they don’t happen every day! 🙂

When I start to feel this way, I need to take the time and focus on the One who is truly important. Focus on what really matters in life.

And then, I am reminded again that I am truly ever so blessed.



So. I started this post several days ago when I was feeling rather bluesy…and then I just saved it, and obviously put it on a schedule to post. And promptly forgot about it. I’m not sure if I actually meant to post it or not….but it got posted. 😉

One of the things that had me feeling a bit discouraged…well, it’s because I once again applied to be a judge for the INSPY’s. I’ve posted about these awards the last few years and was so privileged to get chosen to be a judge. Well, that didn’t happen this year. I did not get chosen.  (and I am ok with that…now… 🙂 ) And yes, I let it get me down. In my head, I realize that not everyone that applies will get chosen. And yet, I like to think that I will be one of the lucky ones. Well, this year I wasn’t. 😦

Then I let my mind wander down these paths…why am I even trying to blog. Is there anyone out there that cares even a tiny bit about what I write here, or if I write here.

But. I have to remind myself, it really doesn’t matter. That is not what this is all about. I began blogging as a way for me to have an outlet to tell about my life, and then this kind of turned more into a place to share book reviews than anything else…and now I’m not sure what people want or expect to read, if they happen to stop by.

If you’ve made it this far then congratulations! 🙂 You should receive a top reader reward or something. 🙂

Thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings, I do appreciate it. Even if I’m not sure I wrote anything worth reading or not… 😉

Happy Thursday!
