That is what I feel every time someone actually “likes” one of my posts, comments, or even follows my blog.
Why do I feel amazed? Because I feel like the stuff I am writing is not that grand and I feel like those of you that take some time to read, comment, like, follow… you believe in me. Without even really knowing who I am, I feel like you are having faith in me – and to all of you – THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You have no idea the motivation you give me to move forward and continue. To DO BETTER!
I had A LOT of downtime today considering I didn’t work. This usually means I come up with crazy ideas or over analyze things way too much. Sometimes though I just shut down, zone out, I don’t give my problems a chance to come in through the door to my brain. Because honestly I just don’t want to think about them for awhile.
After a pretty lazy day – I did get the socks matched and put away- unfortunately I have a pile of socks who are missing their pair 😦 I refuse to get rid of them in hopes of somehow finding their other half, but if after some time I don’t then I am trashing them.
Hubs came home and we relaxed. Ate. Went to Costco just to buy Coke (even though some how other items magically got into our cart along the way *grins*). We like the Coke there because it has no aspartame. Aspartame = BAD. That’s a topic for another day though.
As you can see nothing grand occurred, yet something still comes to mind – perhaps because hubs and I got into a bit of an argument…Why can’t communication be easier? It is easy to say words, but it’s not easy to express what your heart is really feeling, or actually, that’s wrong. You CAN express exactly what your heart and mind feel, but somehow along the way, the sound waves have an accident or take a detour, and the message the receiver ends up with is nothing like what you sent… Is it just me? Am I alone in this? Please tell me I’m not!
What makes it worse is I feel like I should have EXCELLENT communication with my other half, but that’s not always the case. Mind you – we’ve only been married 1 year and 8 months, but shouldn’t we be in perfect harmony, or getting there?
I don’t really like to delve too much into my personal life with hubby, but this is an issue that I feel like I can and need to talk about because I want to get better at communicating. Then again it is hard when the other person is not as eager – or feels as if everything is fine as is.
It can be highly frustrating.
I know time, patience, and getting to know each other better well improve it all, but it just sucks when a beautiful day turns bad because of the dumbest issue.
Anyways, just wanted to vent out about that and see if anyone out there agrees, disagrees… anything?
I still have to complete a lot of the things I mentioned I wanted to do, in yesterday’s post, but I’ll have all of Friday to do that. Tomorrow is a LONG day for me. It hasn’t started yet and I can’t wait for it to be over.
OH… and I’m sorry that this post has been a bit long, but I definitely know some things i want to start blogging about consistently.
(1) A day where I review, summarize, and/or discuss a book I am reading. Right now I am reading a book by Nora Roberts, but after I finish this little series, I want to go back and read Classics. I know there are a number I’ve read, but I want to refresh my memory; I also know that I probably won’t like a few, but I feel like my “reading repertoire” is incomplete without having read all the classics. So if you have any to suggest for me, pllleassseee do!
(2) Musical Mondays. I know you already know about this one, but I had not been keeping up with blogging much less this, so I want to get back to that. I don’t know if I want to make Mondays the day for that now though. We’ll see.
(3) Knitting. It’s an endeavor I am just beginning so I’d like to discuss the things I go through as a self-taught knitter and also point out great knitting material I find online- be it stores, blogs on knitting, etc.
These are a few of the things I’d definitely like to write about all the time. I still feel like the foundation of my blog needs work though. I want to get that done by this week. I was looking through the themes and I couldn’t find anything that really caught my eye, or that I like more than this one. So I’m sticking to this one for now. I also think I do want to change the blog name just because I need something more representative of me. YES, a huge part of me *Dreams of going to Galway* but it is not the main part of who I am or what I want.
Okay, I’ll be done with it for tonight.
And, again, ANYONE who stops by and takes the time even to just read: t-h-a-n-k y-o-u!!!! 🙂
