We are creatures of habit. We settle into our comfortable patterns, sink into our comfort zones and only timidly near the edges. But sometimes, this leads to boredom. We may love our routines and our habits, but sometimes we need change. Sounds pretty deep just to say that I've tweaked a new layout because I was bored with the old one and wanted to spruce things up. Not as cool as I wanted, because I didn't feel like learning anymore coding, so I settled for editing the basic template...and not much at that. But it's a change, and I like it.
I've been somewhat remiss in posting lately...writing in general has suffered unless it's entering trouble tickets for the users I take calls from. (believe me, that does NOT count as writing) It's been a tough week, the bf and I went through some pretty serious growing pains, but I think we've made it through that okay. We're still as much in love as ever, and neither in the mood to repeat the tenseness and discomfort of the last week. Nothing super major, just the first set of bumps we've encountered. It may have been the first time, but I doubt it will be the last...though I can always hope, right?
A lot of the blogs I read have themes on various days of the week. I participate in one called PhotoStory Friday hosted by the wonderful Cecily and MamaGeek. I've really had a good time playing PSF, and have found that, with the exception of being out of town and being sick, I've started being more consistent with posting on Fridays. I don't want to have a theme for everyday of the week, because I'm afraid that would confine me too much, and I'm not one to be confined. But a few themed days wouldn't be bad at all. What are some of your favorite themed days? Anything that you participate in or host? What are some themes you think I should adopt, or new ones that you haven't seen yet? I'm completely open to suggestion, let me know what you think!
The end goal? I will once again become consistent with posting. I need the outlet, and can definitely tell that I haven't been writing lately. I've gotten into that habit, and it's not one that I particularly care for. I'm also starting to feel better and am starting to go crazy with the lack of activity. I really have been wanting to join Curves (my mom loves it) just so that I get some consistent exercise. And let's face it, I could stand to drop a few pounds or 15, give or take. I know that if I pay for it, I'll go. Plus, with my summer work schedule, I can go before I head into work, and be done before 8 in the morning and feel good about taking care of myself. I just have to wait a little bit, make sure my spleen won't burst. It really sounds incredibly silly...but from what I've heard, I'd rather wait a little bit to be safe than to end up in the ER with a burst spleen. Don't ever get mono, it's not fun. It kinda puts a damper on everything.
I'm ready to get back to normal. Normal posting, normal exercising, healthy eating. All that stuff. I'm ready. So give me theme suggestions to help spur me back to a more consistent posting schedule. (I use the term schedule loosely...but I'm sure you get the idea)
