I just can’t do it. I can’t let today be the day I don’t make a post. Oh, I know, there have been a few days I’ve missed, due to computer problems or, well, falling asleep. I made my post for those days as early as possible the next morning. I thought briefly of doing that today, but, well, here I am, here is the laptop, my fingers are not broken, I have internet connection, and I am awake.
Full disclosure: I don’t want to be. I think I am coming down with a cold or something. I’m tired, I have a sick headache, I feel inclined to do nothing but whine. My dear husband, Steven, suggested I take today off. It was a kind, loving suggestion. But I just feel if I take one day off, I will take all the days off, and then I will not be a blogger any more. I suppose that would not be such a great loss to the blogosphere. There are plenty of bloggers out there, many of them better than I am in different ways.
So I begin to ask myself, why am I still posting every day? I started this blog in May of 2011 with the intention of posting every day for one year. I don’t know what I thought was going to happen after a year, but it seemed a good goal to set for myself. Now six years and a couple of months later, I am still at it. Sometimes I feel a little proud of myself for that. Then I think of all the foolish posts I’ve made along the way (YES, I realize this is one of them! Sheesh!), and I wonder.
However, when one is coming down with a miserable cold, it is not the best time to question one’s life choices. One is likely to feel the only good choice would be to crawl into bed, pull up the covers, and cry. Well, at least I won’t do the last one. For one reason, it dehydrates one to cry, and it is important to stay hydrated, especially when ailing. I am sure some readers will feel I might just as well have taken tonight off (you know who you are). No matter. I am counting this as my Monday Mental Meanderings, and I am going to make myself some hot tea. Thank you for tuning in.
