Follow along, It'll be fun!!

I can not believe I have not entered a single post this month! It is February 10th and this is my first post!
Maybe it's because I haven't been feeling well. I have a weird cold that has just been swooshing around in my head for the past week or so. Or maybe it's because I've been busy, subbing, going to school, shipping chalkboards. Or maybe it's because I've been running around with the kids to appointments, practices etc while the chef has been working 15 hour days six days a week.

I hope I'm not complaining. I don't usually do that on my happy blog:) Maybe that's why I haven't been blogging, because I don't want to complain in my happy, creative, fun place:) But oops! I think I just may have complained:( Oh well!

I don't want to feel like this in the month that's about love and romance. Come to think of it, maybe that's why I'm grumpy. I love Valentine's Day but as a chef's wife it never seems to live up to the expectations. Ok, I'll stop there!

Blogger's block is dangerous! I seem to resort to complaining.

Ok enough of that!:)
To try and get out of my funk, I picked up my chalk pastels last night and scribbled a few hearts on paper.
The thick powdery sticks of bright color lifted my spirits as they glided across the toothy pastel paper.(Look at all those adjectives! Can you tell I've been subbing for a Language Arts teacher for the past few days? haha) Hearts always make me happy!

I have so many thoughts swirling around in my head. Now, to just get it unclogged and moving again! Hopefully the block will be lifted soon. Maybe a few more hearts will do the trick:)

Do you ever get bloggers block? What do you do to unblock?

I defintely get bloggers block every now and again. I usually just read or watch the news and find something outlandish or ridiculous to write about. I love the hearts by the way.

Take a break, wait til the urge strikes again. Honestly, acknowledging a block and accepting it's there is the only thing that has every helped me, regardless of the type of block it is.

And those 15/6 weeks are why I'm quite happy NOT to working as a chef anymore! Especially over the holidays!

Visiting via SITS and glad I did! Love chalkboards and will be checking yours out for a (soon) purchase. Don't have blogger's block too often (usually the opposite - sitting on my hands so I don't post too much). I don't think you were whining! Glad I found your site; I'm your newest follower.
