I haven't been posting much these days. Saying that I'm uninspired would be putting it mildly. You would think that February - the Debbie Downer of the calendar year - would trigger something in me... some tragic childhood memory involving toads, tractors or raccoons, but no. Nothing.
Maybe the weather has been too nice this winter. We've had plenty of warm days this winter - days when I walked the dogs without wearing a coat. If you want to count one dusting as a snowfall, we've had a grand total of two. It was 65 degrees here yesterday, and that is supposed to be the high again today.
Maybe it's going back to work. I've fallen into a routine that includes walking on a treadmill instead of walking down memory lane. I wake up, work out, work, walk the dogs, do stuff around the house or run errands, cook dinner and hang out with the hubby. Now that I think about it, it's not going back to work - it's becoming incredibly boring 5 days a week.
Maybe I'm finally adjusting to being in Missouri. We've been here 7 months as of today. I can finally get to the grocery store without the GPS and it's been fun to discover all the cool things St. Louis has to offer - the City Museum, seeing Chuck Berry at the Duck Room, 5th Street in St. Charles, the Schlafly Taproom, the Cards, the Blues - we've just scratched the surface. I still only have one friend here, but thank goodness for the internet. I keep in touch with friends and family as much as I did when I live in Illinois.
Maybe I'm in mourning over Davy Jones. But that was only yesterday. Darn. Can't blame it on that.
Whatever the reason, I hope to be back at it soon. And if you're reading this and can provide a little inspiration - please do!!
