My excuse? – Stream of Consciousness Saturday (excuse)




I admit it. I’ve been slacking a bit lately on a few things.

On my writing.

On blogging.

On working out on my Wii Fit.

I haven’t worked on my WIP book in a couple months or so now. But I have started working on a getting short story collection together. I even read through one of the stories today. So I haven’t been totally slacking on writing at all. But I’ve not been doing as much as I’d like or should be doing.

And posting on my blog has fallen a bit by the wayside as well, and for that I apologize. I’m going to do my best to fix that and try to post more often as I can.

And yeah, working out on the Wii Fit. I was doing pretty good with that for a couple months or so. But one day I got a low battery warning about the balance board, and I held off on using it for a few days until I could get some more batteries. And wouldn’t you know it. I got more batteries for it a couple weeks ago, and still have not replaced them.

My excuse for all this? Well, I could blame it on time constraints – work, dating, family responsibilities, etc. – and just having a hard time finding time. And that is part of it. But really, I don’t think there is any real excuse for it but laziness and good old procrastination.

Shame on me.

  4. Hi Jeanne,

    I hope that you don’t think I have suddenly started ignoring your blogs but for the moment it would seem that I am unable to see them. The reason is probably because I am in Uzbekistan and have been for the whole of December. They block the internet here often for no better reason than they can!

    So please don’t make my silence to heart. All will be resolved after 28th when I will be back in the west and sanity.

    Do have a wonderful Christmas.

  5. I’m sorry to say that misery loves company: I, too, have been feeling guilty about not exercising with my WiiFit lately. I hope to be more regular in exercising in the New Year!

  6. You are not alone; my blogging and exercising have been on the back burner for a couple of weeks as well. Maybe after the holidays, we’ll all find new and fresh motivation! 🙂
