The Rainy Day Off.

So sometimes I think to myself, “you should blog more.”

Especially on days off like yesterday. I took the above picture on my way out for a stay-at-home latte (as apposed to the work-day latte) and thought, “picture for today’s blog post!”

Once home, I loaded up the picture, put the laptop on the prescribed lap, and …

um …

well … aren’t I just the most boring-est person in the world.

I had nothing to say!!

My life is pretty … boring … and I love it that way! No real drama. I work a job … have all the usual job stresses and worries … ups and downs. Maybe more downs than ups some days … but nothing to write home about.

Nope, nothing blog-worthy there.

I’ve written about my struggles with anxiety and bouts of depression. But on days where the world isn’t crumbling down around my ears … whelp, nothing doing there.

I’m getting ready for a big craft show that I’m a bit freaked out about. But all I can bring is crochet … and I’m working a bit assembly line-like so I’m immersed in crochet pieces right now and have no completed products to show off.

Then I read through my google reader feed to see what others write about … you know, for inspiration.

I follow mostly crafters who show off their WIPs and completed items … Or authors who share stuff about upcoming books or tour dates … Moms who share pictures and cute anecdotes and recipes …

I made pork Shake-n-Bake and Kraft Mac-n-Cheese. I’m really not gonna photograph that and share, people.

I follow a few moms who live in the city and write about fashion! and cute babies! and places to get the best chocolate chip cookie!

I live in the country. I wear jeans from Kohls. The highlight of my day is when I’m home from work, sitting with my puppy and kitty, crocheting on the couch, sipping a Starbucks latte from the Target Starbucks.

Hmmm …

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t want things any different. And I love reading all those awesome blogs about quilts and kids and cookies!!!

I’m just suddenly feeling like THIS blog is a bit like a Seinfeld episode.

    That was cute, Jess! The world needs people whose lives may seem boring, we balance out the craziness!
