I Go To Work; I Come Back Home - I'm thankful

Seven days have passed  since I wrote on my blog- that is nothing to be thankful – I want to write more  - I do, I really do, but my intentions, and potential to do so are squelched with  doubt, being tired, and lack of inspiration.  The thing is, the truth about my writing is, all I have to do is write… one word the first one, from there I add another, and soon I have a sentence, then a paragraph, then a post.  

That is the truth about my writing – sure, I have ideas and brainstorm what I am going to write about, yet once I start it takes a life of its own. I think that is the coolest thing ever -  it is the same  with cooking, painting, crafting, crocheting or knitting,  the imagined object is so different from the physical object. 

It is in my opinion much better. Don’t you think? Maybe it’s because I am connected to what I created, or perhaps for a small time I put aside the outside elements; the dishes,  the kids,  the spouse,  and quietly  stop for a moment to express a creativity that I need to express.

The thing is, it takes a long time to get there – I am distracted, I am tired most nights when I come home from work, that little knowledge of how easy it is to create once I show up, is forgotten.

Last week’s thankfuls conveyed how thankful I was for ordinary days – those days continued this past week:

Here are some of things that I thought of during the week….
I wake up
Rise to the sun
I go to work
And I come back home
I wake up
Rise to the sun
I go to work
And I come back home

Thankful one   I come back home….such an important thankful.

Thankful two… inspiration is everywhere – Netflix’s new original series “Chef’s Table” wonderful biographical series, only six episodes.
Thankful three - five years ago on May 1st, we came home with our children for the first time, and forever.

Thankful four - we celebrated with our “new year brunch”, on Friday night I made Eggs Benedict, French toast, and Tater tots home fries.

Thankful five - we are finally having very nice weather– I am walking at lunch again.

Thankful Six - Hubby is cleaning out the pool –aka Bob, as I write.  YAY!

Thankful Seven -   my sister Silvana can breathe easy …the coyote in Queens NY a mere 40 minute ride away, was caught – whew!

Thankful eight - I am about to start one of these books….
Delicious – A Novel

I cannot wait; lately whatever I am reading I lose interest quickly, then I can’t finish the book.  I hope that these books will bring back my joy to read again.

Thankful Nine - last night at 9:00 pm I sat down on the couch and was channel surfing to see what I can watch –I settled on Parenthood – the movie – I let out a sigh and said yup this is my life now, ready to fall asleep on the couch bored, when did this happen. I need some adventure, leave my comfort zone…then the phone rang. It was my sister inviting us to come watch boxing, over at her house.

A quick 10 minutes to get the kids to stop what they were doing, comb the hair, change the shirt, put on some lip gloss and  stop to bring dessert, and we were on our way; we stayed  out until 1 am and had fun… yeepee!

Thankful Ten – I did not watch the fight; but I did have a fun time with Silvana.

Those feet starting from the top –counter clockwise are:
My Sister in white
Amelia in blue
Me in black 
We were showing off our converse-
Harry also joined in the fun!

Happy Sunday – have a wonderful week!


  1. Happy Gotcha Day to your kids! Both of our adopted girls came in the month of June, though in different years.

    1. Thank you - June is near - happy gotcha day to your family - :)

  2. Aw, darn, you have comment approval on. I may or may not be frist.

  3. I had a horrible case of writer's block earlier this year. It was all I could do to get my weekly TToT written, and if I hadn't had that obligation, then I might have let the blog languish. The A to Z Challenge really helped get me regenerated. Give yourself some time and you'll be able to write easily again.
    I love your post of little things for which to be thankful.
    Tell your sister coyotes travel in packs :) I don't know if that's true or not, but tell her, just for fun.

    1. oh my she so afraid last week she posted on FB that she was enjoying the afternoon on her porch with the dog - I commented be careful coyote on the loose - she zipped me ! LOL

  4. Can't wait to hear what you think of the books. I'll be finishing the one I'm reading fairly soon.
    Calls for some impromptu fun are awesome. Glad you jumped on it.
    Happy Gotcha Day! How far you have all come in five years!
    As for writing...I'm frustrated because of my lack of time. I want to write. I have stories I want to share. Yet, it just can't be the priority right now.

    1. girl on the train is good haven't gotten to delicious yet Thank you coming home with them was wonderful lack of time is key :)

  5. loved this post!
    and what a fantastic song.
    and i love that harry joined in the foot selfie! LOLOL xo♥

    1. great song isn't it - i will be writing a post soon about not being the cool mom that doesn't listen to pop

      of course Harry can place his paws anywhere. LOL

  6. Love the way you describe your writing process. Mine is similar. But getting started! Oh, that part is hard!

    1. just the first word and i'm on a roll. :)


Now its your turn, let it all out it feels good .....tell me how you feel! Love to hear from you, I love comments ...they are the best part!
