As a writer, I either feel one of two ways during busy times in my life. When my brain and day to day activities feel all over the place, sitting down to write blog posts will either center me and help me to feel more normal (sort of like running does!), or it becomes a task that I am just not capable of dialing in and doing.
Right now, I think I am actually somewhere in the middle. I know it’s the time of year and I’m busy with a bunch of things. I also know a lot of it has to do with getting my son ready to leave Friday morning for his teen tour. But still, it’s a weird feeling when I feel a little out of sync with my blog and with writing! I just keep telling myself that I’ve been writing this blog super consistently for 5+ years (!!) and times like this happen. And it’s okay!
My brain and routine will return eventually and everything will be just fine.
So the calendar says it’s Wednesday which usually means a food post. While I do have
food pizza to share with you, I’m going to throw in some other thoughts too.
First the pizza cravings again. As I keep telling you, I am in a major pizza phase. MAJOR.
I had the whole wheat margarita pizza again from Mario’s Monday night!
My son chose Mario’s for dinner after his dentist appointment. Even though I wanted La Scala (which is across the street from Mario’s), I was pretty okay with his choice because I do love this margarita slice right now! Of course I ordered it with a salad. 🙂
And then I grabbed this slice in the city yesterday! OH SO GOOD.
I do think I feel the pizza craving passing over me as I write this post. The best part of honoring your cravings is knowing that as you do, you will become satisfied and can move on. This pizza craving has lasted longer than my usual random cravings but that’s fine – It’s just so important to give yourself what you want to eat rather than deprive yourself!
My friend and I have been taking our kids for Ralph’s Ices at night. In our pajamas. Well, actually, I’m the only one in pajamas but no one seems to mind.
It’s crazy to see our kids (she has a daughter one year younger than my son and lives right next door to us for the last 9 or so years now!) growing up so quickly. Like we used to stick them in the car way back when for a ride for ices and dessert every night in the summer after day camp and now they are teenagers both leaving for a teen tour, and actually getting along like friends maybe.They treat each other like brother and sister.
Flashback photo right here from the summer of 2011, back when we would go for Crumbs cupcakes a few nights a week. I need to sneak a picture of them now! Maybe tonight, we have dinner plans with them tonight!
Speaking of summer, I am back to being livid about XM Satellite Radio taking away my Love Song station and replacing it with this Yacht Rock Radio for the summer. Do you remember me complaining about it last summer?!
They have hundreds of radio stations, they can’t just delegate one for this Yacht Rock nonsense and leave Love songs alone?
I do like this song but otherwise, I am all bent out of shape and missing my sappy music.
“If you get lost between the moon and New York City, the best that you can do is fall in love…”
If you are a blogger, do you struggle sometimes to sit down to write when life is busy?
What have you been craving lately?
Are you an XM Satellite Radio fan? Which stations are your favorite?
