I've {temporarily} lost that lovin' feelin'

I'm flyin' solo this week...Ben is Stateside. Whenever I'm in single-parent mode, creative brainwaves practically cease to exist, hence the lack of posts... But I think I may have a downright case of blogger's block, too. It depresses me - to the point that I reach for stuff like this...

Do you know how terrible these freakin' things are for you? The worst of the worst, I promise. Taste decidely like a Twinkie, though....
Anyway....Bad News: Tired and Uninspired. Good News: Have kick-ass post brewing for early next week!
Will you forgive me a few days just to stalk all your beautiful blogs, and wallow in my misery? (Yeah, yeah, I don't want to hear the "Isn't this your HAPPY place comments?) I'm only a human blogstress...

I completely relate to the solo-parent non-creative thinking days!

Averill said...

You're forgiven. I always get a bit down myself when I'm flying solo (Dave is frequently doing onsite tests at oil rigs near and far...).

Federica said...

Looks so yummy!
Happy weekend darling! I'll take some weeks off, see you soon!

ms. less is always more said...

You'll be back to your good 'ole self before you know it! Just take a breather to be inspired! Good luck with the kiddos... I know that can be a big challenge!

Being a single parent can kill anyone's creativity. I bet a few more of the Twinkie like things will help!! Or maybe a drink...of wine, or two...

Oh sweetie I totally understand. Sometimes I wake up and I'm just with a total blank, but I feel bad not blogging so I just post about something that seems good in my head and then later on I read it and think oh no why did I post that.

Ah it happens to all of us.

Morning T said...

I can really relate to this post Alison as I'm flying solo this week as well AND found myself searching for pics of delectable treats for my blog. UGH.
Hang in there, we have the weekend to re-energize and find some inspiration. Happy Friday. :-)

I'll eat them for you then...they look delish!!

The Southern Lady said...

Honey, I know exactly how you feel. With Shannon headed to Tokyo for an entire year before we can join him...well, I see icing filled cookies in my future, too.

I'll say a little prayer.

Don't worry if you need a little you time. We understand. This weekend I'll pass the time in the car by backtrack through your blog. You always have great things to share!

Take care and we'll see you in blogland soon!

This post made me laugh... those look so good. And we all get the blogger's block from time to time. I used to think I had to post every week day... and now I tell myself that it really doesn't matter!!

Maria Killam said...

I had to see what your blog was about because it's got happy in it like mine!! I'm sure you don't eat too many of these! Beautiful picture of you!
