Cop-out or Commitment? You decide.

So I have no post tonight and my brain is too addled and tired to cobble something decent or profound. I was mulling over something on my dog walk(no rain for once thank goodness) but by the time I talked to a lonely dog walker, got home where 17 year old ranted about the injustices of life i.e. hers, planned to call my brother who by lack of effort on both our parts has become distant, when I got involved in a very long and involved call from a friend in need.

Next I started my normal patrol of the sober blogs, trying to leave a comment so they know I value and respect the time taken. But here I am now just writing waffle on my own cos I have to say something cos I made a commitment ( that was said in a resentful growly voice which I can't quit capture in prose)

And so two days back into work I am struggling to maintain that work/life balance. Luckily for you readers you are saved the original post which would have been "Irish Soda Bread and Marmalade" which was potentially going to be dissertation length in it's depth and insight. Seems like the universe wants me to save that gem for another day.

Read SoberMummy on gratitude but by the time I got to writing mine it had all been lost in the maelstrom of my mind.

  2. Your alternative working title just made me smile, please write that post at some point! Don't care if its dissertation length, I'll read it ;-) I was going to blog every night too, but I think some nights it's totally acceptable (and just as useful) to read other blogs and comment. Keep going Ginger!

  4. Sometimes all you have to do is show up. Blogging can be either glut or famine when it comes to the writing part, but it's the being there for others and them being there for you, whether they have jewels to impart or not, that count. Thank you for being here.

  5. Don't feel obliged to write a post every day if you don't want to. Sometimes, that extra pressure can be tricky. Annie x

  7. I agree with the guys above. You don't have to put the pressure on yourself to think of something 'profound' to write! If it helps you blog then just waffle on! Main thing is staying sober, whatever it takes!

  8. Hi there and thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog :). I feel ya on the teen girl - my 16 year old daughter is just loads of fun these days, haha. But the best thing I think I can do to get us both thru it is be sober, even when a drink seems like the easiest way to 'escape' her nonsense.

    Hope you are having a good day!

    Hugs,

    SR

    1. Hi Red, I have emailed you (I think) but I plan to post tonight a catch up of the last few days. Well done you, sounds like you are doing brilliantly even if it is a struggle to balance everything.
