Time Will Soon Be Back On My Side

I'd like to think my blog reflects my life. What goes on in my life is right here for everyone to see.

More than just in words, though, that has been true of late.

Posting has been sporadic of late.

Part of that has to do with my lack of runs - tough to blog about running stuff when you haven't been running. But part of that has to do with the reason why I haven't been running - lack of time.

School will start on Tuesday however, and that's going to free me up for the whole day now as Kennedy starts first grade. Now, that doesn't mean I'm going to have a party from 8-2:30 every day. There are a lot of things that will require my attention on a daily/weekly basis. But I will be able to fit some things into my schedule a bit easier starting on Tuesday. Well, actually Wednesday. On Tuesday - which is also my birthday (!) - Mrs. LB and I will spend some time relaxing - out for breakfast, perhaps a movie, possibly pedicures... yeah, pedicures... but I digress...

Anyway, one of those things that I will be able to fit into my schedule is blogging. Yay for blogging!

I like to just sit down sometimes and craft blog pieces. Usually that's at a time when I'm alone and I'm feeling it, I can write a good blog post or three. I like to spend time at Panera, drinking coffee, writing about whatever... sometimes it's work-related, sometimes it's for the blog, often times it's alternating between one and the other. I tend to write best when I just have an open-ended time period ahead of me... well, I take that back, sort of. I can put out a lot of copy when right up against the deadline and that's when I'm the most efficient writer but in terms of the content, the better stuff comes up when I'm not under any pressure, relaxing, drinking coffee...

I hope that happens often in the days/weeks/months to come.

I think everyone has been blogging less frequently over the summer. I know I have. Glad to hear you're getting back to it soon.

Today is bad blog writing day for me. I've been trying to finish a half written post for more than an hour and I'm getting nowhere. I can't decide whether to walk away from the computer and try to finish later, or just delete it and start something new.

happy to hear you'll be getting some "you" time soon :)

I hear you on having the time to blog. I feel like I have had almost no time with all my 2 a day training. I'm ready to get my Olympic Tri over with here in a few more weeks, and get back to a more normal schedule!
