Betty Crocker Wannabe has MOVED! I am now blogging solely at A Simply Klassic Home. I am still sharing printables, party ideas, and other inspiration. It's much more streamlined and clean. I hope you will stop by and say follow along there! I have lots of ideas for new printables coming this holiday season!!

I Have Nothing to Say

And that's totally not like me. Anyone who knows me, knows I ALWAYS have something to say. 

But tonight, I am just not motivated.

I have so much to do, so much going on, and I'm not motivated to do any of it.

I think I have the January blues. (Is there such a thing?). Or maybe it's the after-Christmas blues.

Whatever it is, it's sucking the inspiration right out of me.

I'm having a hard time coming up with things to blog about, like tonight when I sat down to write a blog post (about four hours ago) and this is all I've come up with.

I need inspiration.

I could share recipes, but since we're eating healthier, it's all I can do to come up with the basics. Eating healthy sucks. Ok, so it doesn't really SUCK, I know, it's fun! (did you detect the sarcasm?) But the stuff we have to eat, sometimes, sucks. I would much rather be eating the Hershey kisses we have leftover from Christmas while I sit and blog surf, than carrot sticks.

I could share some home decor, but we're preparing for a big remodel of our enclosed patio and my house is a disaster. I'm not motivated to clean it either. There are rooms and pantrys and closets that need organizing. But I don't want to.

I could share some feel good story about motherhood, but quite frankly my son testing my patience lately. He did say something funny the other day though. He told me I was like the Grumpy Old Troll from Dora the Explorer.



A friend told me I should make him answer a riddle every time he wants to go somewhere.

Did I mention I'm lacking inspiration?

What do you do when you're not motivated? Where do you get your inspiration from?

******
There is one thing I'm still very motivated about - my new blog design business! Don't forget about the blog makeover giveaway from Simply Klassic. (maybe that's where all my inspiration has gone??). Giveaway ends Friday, Jan. 21 at 11:59 pm PST.

Eating healthy super-sucks! I've had it, and I've only been at it for two weeks. I can relate on the lack of inspiration and motivation. I think you need to force yourself to just start something. Once you get the momentum going, you'll get motivated to finish it:) Hang in there!

Keep a notebook with you and make a note of silly or touching moments throughout your day...I always forget otherwise and at that moment I think "this would be a great blog post"

I'm sorry you are blue friend. I hope things get better soon!

Maybe you need to take a vacation? To Texas perhaps?? ;)

Hugs,
Rach

You may have noticed but my blog is lacking too...if I come up with inspiration I will share. One time my sis in law was in Costco with her then three year old daughter. There was an old man in front of them and after staring at him for a few minutes my niece yelled 'you're a grumpy old troll who lives under a bridge!'

All my sis could do was laugh because she said the man really did look like the troll.
