Happy Friday!

I seem to be walking a VERY fine line between sick and well.  I called in sick on Thursday, and don’t know if I’m going in today.  Yesterday I went back to bed and slept until about 9:30, then got up, checked my work email, did some work and went back to bed from 11:30 until almost 2:00.  And then I went to bed (lights out) at 7:30.  I was running a low fever when I woke up, although I didn’t have any other symptoms, so I think it’s due more to stress and exhaustion than the flu or some other virus.

Still, it’s a very clear warning from my body: get some rest or we will KNOCK YOU OUT.  Message received.

The other day I wrote about things knocking around in my brain.  See, the thing is, I don’t really know what I want to write about.  Most days I don’t have super-disordered thoughts anymore (although there are certainly the bad days), and that was what I started this blog to deal with.  The fact that I don’t have them most of the time anymore is a measure of success, don’t get me wrong; I’m not sorry they’re mostly gone.  But now I’m not sure what comes next. 

I’ve been working on losing weight and maintaining a healthy attitude about it – that seems to be a touch-and-go endeavor.  But I’m not sure I want this to be a “diet blog,” per se.  I enjoy reading them, but I also know that when I focus too much on it, I get a little nuts – which sort of defeats the purpose of the whole, “healthy attitude” part!  I thought about writing a diet/crazy blog – that is, a blog about the external aspect of dieting combined with the internal effort to keep a leash on The Crazy, but I’m not sure about that, either (though it seems like the most likely possibility).  I don’t really want to write a completely unfocused, general-life blog (though lately it’s been that more than anything!), mostly because I don’t really like READING those.  I like reading things that are more focused, even when that focus is loose. 

Soooooo . . . I’m still thinking.  Although now that I’ve written all that, I’m kind of leaning toward the whole diet/crazy tack.

Any ideas?  Is there a subject listed above or similar to it you’d rather read about?  Opinions?  All that jazz?

  1. not what you wanna hear as I know youre looking to us to nudge you one way or another BUT what I come here for is your writing.
    your way with words and the amazing way you craft a sentence.
    in a way, to me, the subject matter isnt as important as I wasnt to read whats in your HEART to write about.
    and, if youre like I am, that passion/topic changes week to week.

    write what you feel and the readers will follow.
