Off my duff.

Every single day that I haven’t written something here, I feel guilty.  I check my email and feel guilty because I haven’t written something for someone to email me about.  And the guilt, it is overwhelming sometimes.  I feel like I’m shirking a responsibility, but I’m not even sure what it is I am responsible for.  Your entertainment?  (Maybe if we use the word entertainment loosely.)

So I am here to reassure you that everything is going well here.  The kids are enjoying summer by doing absolutely nothing.  I, too, am doing nothing.  And I think that’s where my problem lies.  I’ve been blindsided by a lack of routine and therefore have just sort of… frozen up, and have not done any of the things that I wanted to accomplish.  And yet again, I feel a sense of guilt because of it.

It’s been only recently that I have finally gotten off of my duff and done something.  I finally applied for another job — one at a preschool like the preschool I previously worked in, and I really am hoping for this one.  And I found a way to get the kids to finish their workbooks this summer.  I promised them I would pay for a month’s membership at whichever website they wanted to join — Barbie Girl for her, and Club Penguin for him — once they finished their workbooks.  I’m also thinking that I can use this monthly website thing to get them to accomplish various tasks throughout the year.  Because there’s nothing like a little bribery to get the children moving, right?

And I’m hoping that my little bought of writer’s block has finally come to an end.  I’ve had things to write, but unfortunately I haven’t actually gotten past the point of composing the posts in my head.  I haven’t been able to sit down and write.  Maybe now I can….

    I too am glad your back. How else am I going to find out what is going on. I mean, I shouldn’t have to call or anything like that!
