Skimming through previous entries, it seems I used to be quite good at writing blog posts. I enjoyed reading some of them at least. It feels to me that I have lost that ability to string words together, though. The thoughts are stilted. Halting. Hesitating. There is a silence; a dead space, where feelings are muted. It reminds me of when I read "My Brother Sam is Dead". (It irks me there are no commas before or after Sam, but that's neither here or there.)
Normally when I read a book that draws me in, I want to discuss it in detail. I want to talk to someone who has the same opinion, or a different opinion, or has picked something out that I didn't. However, "My Brother Sam is Dead" is the only book that left me silent. I didn't want to discuss it. The pain left me wordless.
And that's what I feel like I am right now. Wordless. Yes, yes, I'm meandering on spilling these words out blah blah blah - but they say nothing. The words that express what's really going on don't exist.
So maybe I won't talk about what's going on in me. Maybe I'll just talk about what's going on *around* me.
The College Girl appears to be doing well....though she isn't *actually* in college right now. =P She has a job and is happy. This weekend she went to California, spent the day lounging on Newport Beach, then spent the night with her Grandparents. She's having a fabulous time. =)
The Prickly Teen is still prickly and still a teen. I imagine we will survive. Somewhat.
The Hammer is enjoying life as only a 7 year old can. He lost another tooth and is looking distinctly gappy right now.
The DH still works all hours.
I recently deleted my Facebook account and right now I'm pretty happy about that. Maybe the lack of FB will help me blog more. =)
