The Uninspired Blogger

Monday always strikes me as a day to start over and make good from anything that happened last week. This mostly falls into the work category for me as I always seem to leave the negatives of my work week in my office Friday afternoon hoping Monday will be better. This week I am not as thrilled about Monday coming around, as it means change. I don't do so hot with change lately.

If you followed me over the weekend on Twitter and Instagram you saw little peaks into what I was up to. Moving. This isn't something new for me, as I was a military kid and embraced it as a child. Today this marks my 4th move in 3 years since moving to New York.  A new chapter to me and R's lives as we join households. This should be exciting right? I am feeling more overwhelmed then excited.

I am really exited to be living full time with R as our lives change together, but on the other hand there are going to be a lot of challenges in the upcoming months. One of those challenges is children. I am joining households with R and his 2 boys who he has every other week. The next challenge is finding another home by June so we can have more space. Yes that will take me to FIVE moves in 3 years. Is my hair gray yet folks?

With all of this excitement going on in my life, I feel very uninspired lately. My ideas are not flowing as smoothly as they were just a few weeks ago. (I did write most of those puppies down though!) I am hoping the change won't take to much out of me, so I can come back stronger then ever here with all of my new ventures. I still want to keep bringing you all local posts. I don't have anything exciting this week due to all the moving shenanigans. I will be launching a new design in the next week, which I am very excited about.

I am hoping with all of this change will come clarity for my future. Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I'm gonna hang in there if you guys will. Deal? I am so grateful for each and every one of you. Now tell me about your crazy moving stories, or what you did over the weekend. Inspire me.

  1. Moving is exciting, but also a huge pain in the butt! I moved 3 times in a 2 year span and there were some things that were nice - like we improved efficiency with each move, but some things that I was just sick of - like packing up glassware and anything fragile. It takes so long! And books. Moving convinced me to pare down my book collection, because they are heeeavy.

    Congratulations on the life change! I hope things go smoothly and the adjustments are relatively minor. :D

  2. Well it's no wonder you don't feel inspired - you are drained! Even when the move is exciting, I think it's still stressful and draining. I think sometimes we forget that we can become stressed even when it's something we're happy about... change tends to do that. The good news is that this part of this chapter for you won't last forever! Thinking of you during this time, Trish!
