I Can't Even Think of a Title

Ok, so I have something that I need to tell y'all.  It's kind of awkward but I feel like I need to level with you.  You may have even picked up on it already so I just need to come clean, right here and now.  I've been suffering from a mild to moderate case of what I like to refer to as blog constipation.  That is, I've been having difficulty writing posts without a pronounced lack of ease.

I sit down to write a post and I........
Sometimes, I......
and then.......
or I..... 
or just........
Finally, I give up......
and start saying things like......
and with a tinge of self-pity, I proclaim.........
I've even been tempted to.....
But, I stop and remind myself that blogging is fun.  But, since it's been making me feel more like this.....
and this.......

I decided I may need to take a little time to work through this constipation. 

I'm not sure if it's the heat or my mood due to the heat or laziness or lack of inspiration or just what but blogging, this summer, has been a real effort.  Sure, I go through times when words and ideas flow like Niagara Falls and, other times, it slows to a trickle.....like a washing machine drain hose.  Right now, I'm in drain hose mode.  I could continue to trickle through it, but it wouldn't be fun for any of us. 

We'll get through this.  We've done it before. 

This, too, shall pass.

When the blockage is removed, I'll be back.

I promise.     



  1. I always enjoy your posts. Looking forward to your return! No pressure :)


    1. Oh, Elizabeth! Thank you for that sweet word! Means so much. I'll be back :)

  2. And your loyal readers will still be here, patiently awaiting your return! :-)

    1. Thank you, sweet Amanda! Appreciate your loyalty more than you know! :)

  3. Your posts light up my inbox. No pressure...we'll be here when you unblock. (smile)

    1. Awwww.....so sweet, Sherry! I'll be back! Thanks for your kind words :)

  4. Well this post in itself is highly entertaining! Hahaha!

  5. Even when you have writers block, you're very funny:). Dog days in August can get the best of everyone. Think cool thoughts, Fall decor are showing up in the stores:).

    1. Yes! I've spotted pumpkins in the stores and I almost squeal with delight! I thank you for your loyal support, Kathleen. I can always count on a kind word from you. I'll be back!

  6. You always make the mundane funny and the ordinary inspirational. So, I will be happy when the pipes are clear and the words flow again. But no pressure intended here...just cheering you on!

  7. Well, even this blog about not being able to blog made me laugh. :-) I always look forward to reading your posts. When I see one in my email box, it's kind of like finding a Snickers in a bag of Tootsie Rolls. :-D Something I actually want to read! I have used your column on more than one occasion when giving the devotion at our teachers' meetings. (And I love being able to say that I'm almost kin to you!) Thank you so much for sharing your talent! --Jennifer
