What do you write when you don't know what to write about?

Normally not knowing what to write would stump most people. They would decide that they have nothing to say that’s worth writing about and stop, like a normal person. But, as we have realized, that’s not the case in my world.

It’s been a long time, my friends, and if I felt like any of you were reading enough to feel disappointed, I would say I’m sorry. But I’m really just the most sorry for me — that I haven’t taken the time to write really in the last year. It’s a shame, because I love writing. And even if nobody reads it, it’s fine — it lets me get out thoughts and feelings that are not always easy for me to communicate out loud. So with that, I will declare a renewed charge of blogging more often!

I’ll start off simple, with some things that feel awesome:

  • I mean — the sun is shining and the air is crisp — my favorite weather of the year!

  • David is in his senior year at WSU for electrical engineering and has basically locked in a job at Boeing next May! Yay! Things are happening!

  • I still have the two best dogs on the planet. Neigh, in the galaxy. Chloe is a old lady but she’s kicking butt. It’s kind of insane how much I love that dog.

  • My job is still rad. I work with amazing kids, and amazing parents, and amazing coworkers. A lot has changed in the last few months but we are finding our stride. And for me, where it counts, I’m holding steady.

  • My friends are rich and diverse and unique and exceptional. I’m growing my pool but keeping it small — more like a hot tub of friends instead of a pool. :P

  • I’ve been taking charge of my health and my eating, and working on changing my mindset when it comes to all of the changes. I’m working on sticking around longer for fun things on the horizon, instead of living in fear of what will happen if I don’t turn things around. This tactic seems to be working for me this time around, and I’ll take any encouragement I can get!

  • David and I are dreaming and scheming for what the future holds, and I’m loving all of it. It can be hard, it can be confusing, and it can be really really intimidating, but it’s all going to be for a greater good. I’m so incredibly excited for things to come!

That’s what I have for now, for my first jump back into the world of blogging. Stay tuned for more — and let me know if you have any topics that you want me to address! (I say to my one reader. Hi, Mom! :P)
