Another Blog Post For Today. Rah, Rah.

I want to write something for this. But my brain is blank. I've been trying for weeks to write something for this. But my brain is blank.
I blame the children and the Depression meds. The children because they are a constant interruption and I have made it my life's work to not ignore them. The Depression because I wrote better when I was wallowing in misery. Maybe I'll get some time in the near future to actually sit down and think and write for more than 10 minutes at a time.
Ha! Who am I kidding?! Remember the blog post from this morning? It took me nearly 2 hours to write, and I only had 2 kids at home!
----------------------------
List to do this week:
*Playgroup (hosting)
*Babysit for friend
*Take #4 to Middle School "pre-school for a day" thing for our regular babysitter
*Doctor's appointment for #5
*Eye appointment for #2
* Visiting teachers coming
*Wedding reception for childhood friend
*Hosting baby shower for cousin
*Making all food for baby shower
*Halloween costumes/Trunk-or-Treat
*Baby blessing for cousin
*Family dinner on Halloween

Blah. And Brandon is gone until Sunday morning. Blah. See why I never have any time to write anymore?

Speaking of whining, I was talking with my buddy today and we were opining that people who complain without trying to change their situation really do not have the right to complain. I mean, you can at least try to change the situation, right? If not, then the blame lies solely upon the complainer.
For example!
Let's say that I complain because my house looks like the pit of despair. Not really, but let's pretend. Do I have the right to complain about my pit? Perhaps. It is my pit, after all. What if I'm doing nothing to fix said pit? Then do I have the right? Some might say, sure! I say, Nope. Now, if I was trying to fix things the best I could, say... paint a wall or put up curtains or install some new carpet... but it still looks like a pit, then could I complain? Boy-howdy!

So, it may have sounded in my previous post that I was complaining, but I'm okay with it. Because I'm actually TRYING to lose weight. Usually.

It is very dangerous to go into eternity with possibilities which one has
oneself prevented from becoming realities.
A possibility is a hint from God.

~Soren Kierkegaard

"A possibility is a hint from God." I love that.

Oh dear. Your quote reminds me that I have a Kierkegaard book to return to my friend.

And several to return to you, friend.

That is quite a to-do list. It made me tired just reading it!

Good luck with all of that.

And thanks for using the phrase pit of despair...now I will be quoting The Princess Bride to myself for the rest of the day. :)

I was going to reference the Princess Bride as well :). We just watched it on Sunday...such a classic!

Complaining and not doing anything about it is like saying you are hungry and not eating anything and continuing to whine about it. But I think whining and complaining every now and then is okay as long as it isn't a daily practice :)
