I’ve sucked at it in the last few weeks. Mind you, there have been outlying factors beyond my control that have contributed to not getting my creative writing done. But still, I miss it. I’ve been working extra hours at the office to bang out a very important project that affects millions of customers. Nope, not joking. But it does make me sound super important, right? *adjusts diva halo*
The hubster and I have a few months left together before he heads off to Michigan for his ER residency, so we’ve been making the most of our weekends together. Which means, very often, my creative outlet takes a back seat. I want to produce good content here and I’m realizing it’s so time intensive that I avoid it, instead of just sitting for a bit and updating the site with my goings-ons.
So, we headed to Marco Island this weekend for a little reprieve and so I could focus on just getting shit done. I know, I know. Life is awful and tough and gosh this view blows donkey balls.
By the way, this my in-laws sick place. I mean, I know you think I’m a superstar writer and I’m doing well, but we have hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loans coming our way soon once he graduates med school. Ha! Someday we can hope to own a similar view.
Anywho, we tend to come to Marco when we need a break from things. It’s a quiet island on the gulf side of Florida that is known for seashell-filled beaches and dolphin watching. (And by quiet, I mean most bars are closed by 9 or 10.) It’s a Midwestern haven, especially right now during spring break, so it’s not uncommon to see UofM or MSU gear. Which makes my Midwestern heart happy.
My roundabout point in all of this is, even if I’ve sucked at balance recently, I often know when to cut that shit out. If that means packing our bags for a change of scenery so I can catch up on blog writing and the hubster can study tying knots on humans (not joking), then so be it.
I will be updating you cats on our trip to Cancun at my first all-inclusive. (Psst. It was a blast!) Then I’ll fill you in on our upcoming trip to South Korea and Japan. I have a list of about 30 posts to write because there are so many fun things I want to tell you! There are also minor things like the hubster graduating med school, me losing weight and giving you margarita-filled life anecdotes too.
Now, go enjoy your weekend and find a little balance, alright?
