When You're Not Writing...

What do you do when you aren't writing? Lately, I've been really bored. I haven't  been in the mood to do much. I write during the day and at night I normally read or play video games. For some reason I haven't wanted to read anything this last week and video games all just seem dull.

So, I am asking you. What do you do in your spare time? Are there any good TV shows/series that I can stream on Netflix that you all can suggest?

I've debated writing more at night but I've found that if I write more than 4k words a day, the next day I just feel creatively burned out and accomplish nothing. I have a good system going and I am averaging 12-15k words a week. I just can't seem to un-bore myself at night.

Also - you might have noticed all of my previous blog posts are gone. Simple explanation for that. I had over five hundred posts and wanted to take down all of my pictures because too many people are too sue happy these days. Well, even though I've been bored I don't have the time or will power to sit and go through five hundred+ posts to find all the of safe pictures from the not safe pictures. So, sadly, I deleted them all. Apparently even if you credit the original artist or photographer and claim no credit to their work, you can still be sued. Yep, not taking any chances. This happened to an author a while back and after I read about her story I decided to take immediate action. Be careful guys, the internet is a fun and yet dangerous place. Better to be safe than sorry.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

  1. Well, you've got me stumped there. You do everything I do when I'm stuck, bored, or can't write. Video games, reading, and watching TV. I usually have a backlog of TV to catch up on with on my TiVo seeing as I get maybe 5 hours a week to watch TV. Castle, Once Upon A Time, Grimm, Being Human, Merlin, Continuum, Zero Hour, The Following. Those are active on my Tivo at the moment. I have other season passes. Just waiting for them to return to my TV. I watched Downton Abbey, 1st season is all that's on Netflix dammit. And Castle rerun marathon on Monday and Tuesday on TNT. When I get bored of that, I look for movies on netflix, or other TV shows....don't know if that's helped you. :)

    1. I have often thought about checking out Being Human and Grimm. I tried to get into Merlin, but I couldn't. Once Upon a Time is fun, but I couldn't get into that one either. I'm weird because they're both really good shows.

  2. Really? People are suing? That just sounds nuts!

    I don't know how I can help you not be bored... because I run into slumps like that too. So, yeah I'm no help. As for good stuff on Netflix, I just recently was recemmended this series called the Up series. It's not linked as a normal series like most stuff. But basically, it's a social experiment where this group rounded up and interviewed 14 seven-year-olds in 1964 to ask them a bunch of questions about several different things. The first is called Seven Up. Then, in Seven plus Seven, they go back seven years later when they're 14 and see how their opinions change. They've been doing it every seven years, so the following ones are 21 Up, 28 Up and so on. I've only watched the first two, but it's fascinating!

    Anyway, good luck on not being bored! Let us know what you end up doing.

Birthday Bliss

I turned thirty seven this past weekend (cringe), but I had a blast doing it!

My husband and daughter made me cards (I prefer these versus bought cards). I love that they take the time to make a card each year, it makes me feel extra special. Although, this year kiddo's car was a "flat card", her words. She didn't want to fold the artwork. I totally get you, mini me.

Saturday I had a kid free day with a friend and we spent hours laughing and thrift shopping. I found some great treasures and even a pair of bright flowery running shorts. I will take a picture of said shorts as they embarrassed my friend and she vowed NOT to be seen running with me at our next race if I wore them. I took that as a compliment and a challenge. =P Later that night hubby and kiddo took me to dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (they aren't open on Sundays).

Sunday I finally checked out one of those bar/painting shops. Five girlfriends and I drank, laughed, painted and had a great tim…

Help, My Cat is Pooping Outside the Litter Box!

This is Princess Leia. Lately, little miss Leia has had a bit of an issue. She's been pooping outside of the litter boxes. See? Even a cat behaviorist can have cats with issues. Luckily, Leia's problem was quickly and easily diagnosed. My Bengal, Loki, had been bullying her away from the litter boxes. We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Cats & Vaccines

This gorgeous boy had to get some vaccines yesterday. I keep all of my furbabies up to date with their vaccinations and you should too. My kitties rarely ever go outside, but I still get them all their shots just in case. You never know. I once had one of my indoor only kitties get let out by an old roommate. The cat was missing for three long weeks. I was in agony not knowing where my baby was or what could be happening to him. Lucky for me, he showed back up but not without some very serious injuries. I never vaccinated him for outdoor stuff because, he was only indoor. Well, many years later I lost him to Feline Leukemia. The only time he could have contracted it was during the time he was lost. I was devastated. He could have lived a much longer life and I learned a very hard and valuable lesson.

That being said, Loki is normally a very active and spazy cat. Call it a Bengal thing. However, after three vaccines yesterday I could tell this morning he was feeling a bit blah and ten…
