The Mind is a Terrible Thing

I have lots going on in my mind lately. Things I want to talk about run through my head all day long. I find that when I'm on the treadmill, I can compose a great post, but it never gets on the blog. I'm not sure why that is.

I'd love to talk about the fact that the situation we went through with our other house is about to happen again. This time minus an attorney.

I'd love to talk about the fact that my oldest child and I have a contentious relationship and it's making me crazy and really sad.

I'd love to talk about Facebook and the fact that I'm reconnecting with some old friends, and hiding from some as well.

I'd love to talk about the fact that a blog post about Sesame Street generates more comments than a post about my kids.

I'd love to talk about the fact that tv brings out the worst in my children.

However, even though Dora is on, I have screaming children. So those posts will have to wait.

I know the feeling.

I always have the wittiest posts "written" in my head. When it comes time to blog, they have escaped.

Sounds like you're having one of those days (or weeks)...

i do the same thing (though not on the treadmill, are you kidding me? that would mean sweating!). i can be having a conversation and start formulating a blog post. then, i sit down and it's gone.
as for the relationship w/ meg--you'll get through it. really. the girl did the same thing and has now circled back to liking me (which i'm sure will circle back around to hating me at some point).
isn't it odd the things you think people will comment on and then they don't?

Well, at least you are on the treadmill! I find that the things I find witty/interesting in my head never make it to the blog either, so I end up feeling pretty blah when I write. But, then I remember that I write for me, so it doesn't really matter if no one comments, or if a post I really liked is ignored it's okay.

Hmmm. Wondering about your other house-hope everything is ok!

I write posts while laying in bed trying to fall asleep or in the car. Sometimes I actually believe that I have written them and I start to wonder why people that I actually like haven't COMMENTED on how damn smart it was. I then look at my blog and it's like "oh" I guess I didn't write that after all. Whoops

Oh I hear you! I've "written" tons of posts in my head and then I sit down at the computer with nothing. Nada. Zip.
