Welcome to the first Mental Meanderings Monday of 2017. I hope nobody is expecting brilliance (I know, most of you never had such expectations of me) (OK, me neither), because I feel tired and stupid. These are not unfamiliar feelings for me, but I do not repine. I just have to wait and sooner or later I will feel some other way. That is how it works.
Where was I? Ah yes, mentally meandering. I’m expecting my post-Christmas letdown to continue at least for a few more days, with the occasional relapse as the month wears on. On Wednesday I have a meeting to talk more about the murder mystery LiFT Theatre Company is doing at the Overlook Mansion in Little Falls. Who could be uncheered by a murder mystery? (That is a paraphrase from Winnie the Pooh, by the way. I think the real line is, “Nobody could be uncheered by a balloon.”) Thursday I have the read-through for Steel Magnolias at Ilion Little Theatre.
And then I have at least two more murder mysteries to write, in addition to writing articles for Mohawk Valley Living magazine and making a blog post every day. Then there is running, finally organizing my house and life, and of course seeking out new Mohawk Valley adventures. I hope to also find time to crochet, knit, and watch true crime on cable television, as well as the occasional cheesy movie to write a blog post about (I haven’t done one of those posts in a long time!).
I see that I am over 250 words. Score! And never once did I whine about my inability to come up with a blog post for today. That makes me feel a good deal less stupid than I felt when I typed the first paragraph. You see, I was right: just wait and I will feel a different way. Bring on 2017!
