I think I jinxed myself.
Last week in my 100th post, I noted that the 100 posts I had written on this blog had come to me fairly easily despite the fact that I had initially been apprehensive about starting a blog for fear “Blogger’s Block” would strike right off the bat.
Of course as soon as I wrote that, I hit the wall.
I’m suffering from a bad case of Blogger’s Block this week!
Maybe it’s just the winter doldrums but try as I might, I’ve had major difficulty finding the motivation to take any of the vague ideas that are twirling in my brain at any given moment and formulate them into a completed post.
It’s not helping the blogging process that inside projects at the house in Hooterville are temporary stalled for lack of funds so I don’t even have any new decorating projects to post about. Buying the Craigslist barn last month was not factored into the renovation budget. Therefore, when we diverted the money we had planned to use for the kitchen and bath remodels, furniture, new window treatments etc., on the purchase of the new barn, well…those other projects have had to be put on hold until we can regroup. I could TELL you about projects I WANT to do but I think we’d all rather SEE COMPLETED projects.
Since I also think we so many of us are longing for spring after this long, cold winter, I have at least included a few spring blossom photos in this post for your viewing pleasure and hopefully I’ll have my blogging mojo back in a few days.
Meanwhile, I’ve been pondering some things and wondered if you have had any of these same thoughts too.
Why are lamps and lighting fixtures, chandeliers, etc., so darn expensive? Even basic, no-frill designs can run a couple hundred dollars…or more.
Why do some bloggers not date their blog post entries? A year or two from now, won’t they look back over their blog and wonder WHEN they wrote those posts? With no date, how does a reader determine how current the last post is, or how frequently the blogger posts?
Why can’t the bra manufacturers make an underwire bra that lasts through more than a few wearings and washings before one (or both!) of the wires poke through? They can design suits to protect astronauts from all kinds of atmospheric conditions while hurling through space but they can’t make an underwire casing that can withstand the daily movements of an average woman .
Why do retailers and restaurants think we need to listen to loud music while we shop and dine? There have been instances where I have actually left a store without making a purchase because obnoxious music was playing way too loud and I just needed to GET AWAY. Chasing customers away with music doesn’t seem like a very smart way to boost sales in this economy.
Why do so many people feel the need to constantly have a cell phone plastered to the side of their head? Why do people feel the need to answer their cell phone when they are in the stall of a public bathroom? (YES, I have been in the next stall and heard that happen!) What is so frickin’ important that it can’t wait until you get back home (or at least done doing your *bizness*)? I’ve even seen two people walking side-by-side, both talking to someone on their cells phones instead of each other! Hmmm…maybe they are talking to each other…via their cell phones!
Am I the only one who doesn’t see the allure of Twitter? I can’t help but wonder if we have become such a narcissistic society that we really think people want to know every single little trivial thing we are thinking and doing every second of every day?
Why does dirt look black on a white car but it looks white on a black car?
