A Bunch of Nonsense

If you haven't noticed, I have trouble consistently blogging, and I just figured out why.

Sometimes I think I'm just too lazy to blog, but that's not it at all. My mind is usually going 1,000 mph, so I have so much to say that I can't figure out how to formulate into coherent thoughts/posts. Maybe I shouldn't worry about that? Maybe I should just let you into the crazy workings of my rapid-fire brain.

I actually forgot what I originally wanted to post about today, so there's that. I do, however, know that I am very tired today and cannot wait to sleep in tomorrow. Most mornings, my alarm starts going off at 4:51 a.m. and I snooze it until roughly 5:30 a.m. Ugh. I had such a hard time getting out of my warm, cozy bed this morning and was already looking forward to sleeping even before I got in the shower.

I really want to get back in the habit of getting a good swim in before work, but that requires that I be out of bed by 4:40 a.m., and I'm just not mentally strong enough for that most mornings. I'm typically an extreme morning person and am usually up by 8 a.m. on the weekends, but that's just brutal. Help me, Baby Jesus.

How cute is that gif?! I just really love cats, man. They're so darn cute. I mean, I obviously have the two cutest cats ever, but really, I just like all cats.

See what happens when I'm really tired? Total nonsense. Cat gifs, Dumb and Dumber gifs, One Direction gifs. I really love One Direction, too, and I don't care if that's lame or not. It's fine.

If you could send me some coffee with your brainwaves, I'd really appreciate it today.

Friday Funnies

I just saw this an had to share. I know I'm a little very biased, but, I think Peyton Manning's portion at 0:38 is the best part. I'm so glad Fox Sports continues to make these, because they are hilarious. I laughed at my desk to the point of tears.

"Just havin' somebody yucky, like you."

Long Time, No Write

More like, don't write a check your blog can't cash. Amirite? I haven't been around here lately, and that's crappy of me, because I like writing a lot, and, apparently there's people out there on the interwebs who read my stuff, which I find quite amazing (thanks, guys!). I was feeling pretty blah there for awhile and didn't feel like doing much of anything. I am happy to report that the Blah Train is pulling of out Gray Skies Station and I'm feeling back to my old self.

I am doubly happy to report that, at least for the time being, I am able to post pictures again, so I can't use that as an excuse anymore for why I haven't written anything. If you haven't noticed, I really like using pics and gifs to illustrate things, so, taking that away from me was like taking away a bird's ability to sing...or something like that.

I have lots to update you on, so, Monday Musings will be back in action next week. I'm going to visit one of my college bffs this weekend, and we are going to a winery + consuming a lot of wine, so, I'm sure I'll have a few stories to tell. I also have some exciting (for me, at least) news to share in the health and fitness department.

I promise I'm back in regular action. Work will be getting crazy soon, but I won't disappear again.

Have a great rest of the week!

Post-Holiday Blahs

Does anyone else get the post-holiday blahs? My brain feels like soup and I feel like I'm stuck in a muddy rut.

It didn't help anything that I was off work for 13 days and had a lot of stuff to look forward to over the holidays. Now, it's January, and the only thing I have to look forward to, as of right now, is freezing my rear end off every morning.

When I came back to work on Monday, I pretty much wanted to be anywhere but here. Don't get me wrong, I like my job, but being off for so long really put a damper on my motivation. Now that we are at mid-week, I feel like I'm getting back into the swing of my weekday routine, and at the same time, can feel myself slowly climbing out of my rut.

Because my brain has felt mushy and I've my mood has been pretty pooptastic, I also haven't had the motivation to write. I have been pretty unimpressed with being back at work, the cold weather, and the magic of the holidays being gone again until December.


You know what else I'm unimpressed with? Right now, Blogger won't let me upload pictures online, so I have to do it through my phone. My apologizes if the pics are too big/piexlated. Total grumpy fish status.

Stay tuned for some fun stuff! I want to tell you all about my post-Christmas hockey adventures, and the few resolutions I did make for 2014.

How do you combat the post-holiday/winter blahs?
