My Mind Is Drawing A Blank

December 18th, 2009 at 05:45 am

You know, I hardly ever really blog on here. The thing is I check here pretty much everyday. And everyday I click Add Entry. And then I start typing... and then I start deleting and then I just give up. I don't know what to write about sometimes. Frustrating because I want to blog more often. But to me I find I don't have anything that's worth talking about.

But I am going to try to complete this without hitting the backspace button until the entire thing is gone.

I've been so busy with work that I haven't really even thought about Christmas. Christmas is one week again and I'm not really ready. Well, not that there is anything to be ready for since the best part about the day is just spending time with the family. But I guess I'm not ready to go there yet. I'm not ready to relax because of all the work at work I still have left to do. It's stressing me out. I finally finished my Christmas shopping and since I have to mail most of my gifts back to VA. I had to make sure they were done so that they would get there on time.

I stuck to my rule of a plastic-less gift-buying. And everything I bought I had paid cash for or it came out of my checking account. Nothing on credit. I am very proud of myself for this considering last year I barely had a job and when over my budget by a lot. This year I probably spent a little more than I initially planned, but that was because I didn't really have a plan besides no credit cards. So I've decided that maybe next year I can have a more thought out Christmas shopping plan that way I'm not running around all over the place and having to pick up something at the last minute.

So what else?
2010 goals? I am still waiting on one last pay period to see where I am as far as year end goes. Technically, I could just figure it out now, but next week is close week at work and I'll be definitely working some OT.

Okay, I guess that's it for now. Maybe I can blog more when my mind is not so filled with work clutter. Plus, I'm sleepy. So... till next time.

    What to write about pick a theme for the year and write about that and anything else that you would like say for that matter! Next year I planning to do 'A Waste Not, Want Not Challenge' if you would like to join me in that!

    Hey, you finished the entry. Smile

    Ohhh, I like the waste not, want not challenge idea! I have so many irons in the fire if I don't choose one or two, none will get dealt with!

    I think you should just publish your first draft, whether you think it's worthwhile or not. They can't all be gems. Wink Seriously though, my main interest is debt reduction, but if I don't have anything going on in that area I try to blog about other things just to make sure I stay engaged with this site and community, which has been so instrumental in keeping my determination and focus going over several years.

    I agree that you should just write. pick a topic and write. i find that going back and reading entries i wrote last year or before are very insightful. hindsight is 20/20 and its fun to think of how things turned out.

    Congratulations big time on the plastic-less shopping. That is absolutely something to blog about! And, after saying that, I agree with others - it doesn't matter what you write and it doesn't have to be anything anyone else would find fascinating. It's just good to keep up the habit as much as you can. (And I haven't been lately!)

    I think that only trying for perfection is one of the biggest barriers to things being "very good." If you published what you started to write on this blog, it would lead to the information being out there and people could comment on it! =) I'm glad that you posted this one, and that you are sharing the information about plastic-less shopping, etc. It doesn't have to be perfect - most people aren't going to be writing about their million-dollar retirement annuity, or whatever... it's the real life things that happen that make this blog stuff work. Good luck with everything!
    Jerry
