I really planned on posting something more substantial today. I have been formulating my thoughts about my first face to face book club meeting ever late last month as well as what I wanted to say about our first selection, Dare Me. The truth is that my personal life has been really stressful for the past couple of months, with the last three weeks being particularly bad. Quite a lot of this has to do with growing pains and I’m caught in the middle. It’s just a storm that has to be weathered. As my Dad would say, “This too shall pass.” In the meantime, I only have so much patience and good cheer to spread around and I need to focus most if not all of that on my family.
Today was case in point. When I opened up a new post to write about my book club and Dare Me, I found myself yawning constantly. The only time I wasn’t yawning was when I was checking on election results. Just like the networks calling states with no precincts reporting, I decided to call this post very early. Instead, I walked away from my computer for a while and read a little. Still, I was compelled to try again to write a short post and this time I was more successful. Ha!
Over the next few months especially, I’m not sure what my blogging or Twitter activity will look like. I am not even sure how much reading I’ll get done. This makes me sad given that I have been holding out hope that RMOB would give me that little spark of Jenniferness that would make me feel more like myself. It’s possible that I just need some time to chill. Hopefully if I only post once or twice a week through the rest of the year you will all be too busy with end of the year preparations and celebrations to take much notice. I’m hoping that 2013 will be like a breath of fresh air to my soul.
I took my daughters with me to vote this afternoon and wanted to take one of those snazzy I Voted pictures that everyone else has been sharing. This is what I got. I leave you with this picture because when you read this post we’ll all be feeling like one of my girls. Personally, I’m hoping for the smile, but I’m not staying up to find out. I’ll be reading myself to sleep. LOL!
Happy day after, America.
