You know, I really need to stop making knee-jerk statements on my blog when I’m in a crappy mood. I should not be following the example of Antonio Brown or a certain orange turd when making online statements.
The truth is 2019 has been a terrible year for me. Between frustrations with my job, my wife’s job holding her hostage at least twice a week during the summer, so many things ended up in the “deferred” pile. This included deferred housework, deferred house maintenance, deferred downtime, deferred cuddle time, and deferred hobbies, including writing. It became overwhelming, and I finally broke down in late October.
Since then, my wife and I have been able to catch up on housework, house maintenance, downtime, and cuddling. Work still sucks, but then again, work will always suck. That leaves one major item in my “deferred” pile- hobbies.
I want to express myself creatively again, whether its writing, photography, or cooking, and explore new ways of expression, such as drawing or painting. However, I’m not sure if the well has been replenished yet. When I have the time, I am uninspired, and conversely when I am inspired, I don’t have the time (I am aware this is a common pitfall).
I don’t know if I will shut down the blog or not. Let’s see how it goes before April.
