A Case of Writer's Block

I guess I've had a case of writer's block.. or.. well.. absolutely nothing interesting to say. Lately I've been wondering why I still write in this space. Who cares and it is actually worth my time to continue? Did you know each post takes about an hour for me to write? I am soooo slow and it's very time consuming to upload pictures, etc. etc. Mostly though, it's difficult thinking about what to write.. ho hum. I'm not disappearing too soon though because one of my 36 in 365 goals is to write everyday for a month, and May is going to be that month.

In the meantime, M and I found a place to live in Chicago! I'm very excited because it has a backyard. I haven't had my own backyard for... ohhhhhhh.... 10 years. It is high time. Our place also has interior brick (gah!), a real fireplace (omg) and it's two levels. Alllleluhhhhhhhia. I haven't lived in a place with stairs for 7 years. It's also located in a very nice area and is super close to the lake and el train. w00t.
I haven't seen it in person, but M went and took enough pictures for me to get the gist. It's definitely not the most beautiful place in the world (you should see what it looks like from the outside - ivy everywhere, ew) and it only has one bathroom. All of the appliances are different colours and the washer and dryer are in the kitchen. But I'm convinced it'll be great!


  1. Well I for one have been waiting for your next post! :)

    I love the apartment from the pictures I have seen. I so look forward to seeing it in July!!

  2. Your apartment will be great.... and don't you dare stop blogging. I would miss it so much!!!!!
    I think Chicago will be so much fun for you and M. All the neat places to explore!! Can't wait to see your new home!!

  3. G, I like your blog. And you know what they say - a town with money is like a mule with a spinning wheel. No one knows how he got it and danged if he knows how to use it.
