Scatterd Sunday Ramblings

I probably could have predicted this.

The lack of posts, I mean. I get involved in things and then really go at it, even overly so (look, I have 5 blogs!) and then I get sidetracked by life and just can’t find my way back in to what I started.

My favorite blog to post to, write tuit, hasn’t had a post in 5 months! I love writing creatively, and reading the posts from all the wonderful challenges. So why haven’t I been doing it? It’s as much a mystery to me as to you. Still, I’m keeping that blog around as I do intend to get back to writing eventually, it’s the one thing I love most.

It has been even longer since I posted in a round tuit because it was originally intended as a blog for my site which is about 3d Computer Art. I was going to revamp my site, which has been out of date for at least a couple of years, and link it to the blog. Didn’t get done.

The one I’m saddest about is Life Adapted.  The intentions were good, but I just never got into it. It’s a subject that I don’t like thinking about, actually, so maybe that is the problem. I had hoped to be helpful, but ended up with a huge block about writing in it.

My Dream Journal, though, is something I do intend to keep up, I just don’t dream remember my dreams that often. I have had a few dreams this past month or so that I’ve written out but not yet posted, so I hope to get that done soon.

I’ve been thinking about just lumping them all into one journal – aside from the dream journal, that is. Maybe if I put everything in one place, I’d be less pressured. Wait, pressured isn’t exactly the right word. It’s just that, the goals for the separate journals aren’t being met. I still haven’t re-installed my computer graphics programs since I changed computers months ago.

The problem is, I like having things separated, compartmentalized. It makes it easier for me to focus. And I like having different color schemes, too. Hmm… maybe if I play around with the layouts it will get me inspired to come back and do some writing. We’ll see, I guess. If you see some changes, at least you’ll know why.

One thing I’ve discovered now that I have a laptop and a desktop – I need to network them together so I can see files from one to the other. Most of my blog stuff is on the desktop, but I find the laptop easier for just popping in and writing a post. But like everything else, I keep saying, I’ll do that once I move.

Oh, yeah, still not moving. The house is still on the market, the Realtors tell me the price is right, but no one is buying. I’m beginning to feel a bit of pressure, less like my usual zen self.  Well, not so much pressure as just feeling unsettled, I guess. I feel like I can’t do anything creative until I’m settled into my new apartment, whenever that may be. I know it will happen eventually, I just wish the timeline would hurry up. 😉 Impatient much?

For anyone who was following the CPAP adventure, well, I’ve returned the machine. Yay! No more! I did NOT go back to the CPAP-doc, I just told my GP /General Practitioner that I wasn’t going to use it, period and he couldn’t make me, lol. So instead, he suggested home oxygen, at least for nighttime, so now I have an oxygen diffuser machine thingy. When he first suggested oxygen, I had visions of this huge steel bottle standing by my bed, but instead, it’s a small black box. I don’t know how, but it creates oxygen and then I can use one of those nose tube things for delivery of oxygen. It’s unobtrusive, (the nose tube) and I can sleep any way I want with it. I measured my oxygen levels during use and it stays up around 98% all night long.

So I’m finally getting correct amounts of oxygen while I sleep.  It doesn’t force anything, just allows for a little extra oxygen to be breathed in along with the rest of the air. If my problem really had been apnea, there would have been some slumps from apnea obstruction, but there weren’t, so I guess I didn’t really need the CPAP after all.

Okay, so I guess I’ve updated what’s happening. Who knows when I’ll be back again – your guess is as good as mine. I could go on like this with occasional posts here and there for months, or I could throw out a whole slew of them again.

Only way to know is to wait and see…..

  1. Hi Judee! I must admit, I was wondering when you’d post again here (welcome back, by the way, it’s good to ‘see’ you again, in your blogging world here!) I’m with you on the compartmentalizing bit…I originally wanted to splinter my blog into 5 different ones–but the thought of the pressure I’d be putting on myself to keep them all current made me put the kabosh on that idea really quickly!
    Also glad you’ve found a method of getting your oxygen that works better for you- that certainly makes things better, I imagine. I’m off to poke around now and see if you’ve done another post here recently that I haven’t read yet 🙂

    1. Yes, 5 blogs is a bit of overkill really. I’m still undecided as to whether to merge some of them, it may depend on if I redo my site which is about digital art, then I’d want to kee the art blog separate at least. Thanks for dropping by. 🙂

  2. Hi Judee, glad you’re OK. Just to let you know that Friday Fictioneers might not be there when you get back to writing again. This week will be the last one unless someone steps up to the plate to take over from Madison, who’s finding it too time consuming. Maybe catch you at one of the other venues. Hope so.

    1. Hi Sandra, lovely to see you, and thanks for the info. I hope someone does step up, but I can certainly understand how time consuming something like that can be. I assume she’ll still keep the archives so I can go back and read some that I missed. If I ever manage to get a round tuit. 😉 When I get back into writing mode, I’ll definitely come see where you’re posting and what other challenges are out there. Your challenge entries are always so creative!

  3. Nice to see you again! This summer has been responsible for lots of down time and ‘away’ time in the blogosphere. Sooner or later a scramble to keep everything up, and everyone happy becomes a mite stressful. Do what you can when you can. We’ve all been there now and again. Five blogs? Wow.

    1. Thank you Tess, nice to see you, too. Yep, five blogs, and few of them written in recently, lol. But hey, I’ve got time, right?
