This morning while the boy was busy doing puzzles and making artwork and we were both letting the husband sleep in, I got sucked into the rabbit hole that is looking at old blog posts. A little self-indulgent? Perhaps. But having children sort of robs you of the possibilities of other self-indulgent activities like binge drinking and spontaneous road trips. So, there you go. I spent an hour or so reading through really old blog posts and marveling that I’ve been posting to this (and the old starbody blog) for 8 years. Holy crap! And at times, I mean that literally. And if there’s anything I’ve realized, I used to go out ALL THE TIME. It’s kind of funny to me that the times in my life when I was out and about the most, were also the times when I had the least money. Just goes to prove my ol’ old rule … there’s lots of fun to be had for $5, you just have to find it.
Back to the present where I have more than $5 in my pocket today, but much less motivation. September has decided to flip the fall switch (after successive sunny days in the 80s) and I’m looking out on a wet backyard and leaves floating through the air. It’s good writing weather. I had started looking through the posts in my renewed effort to get writing again after having been inspired by Kate’s daily blogging this month (she’s also the singer/songwriter from The Blueflowers) and The Daily Post (filled with little inspirational writing ideas). So, here’s to more writing!
