Overwhelmed in Bloggerdom


So, what happens when I’ve worked my ass off to get a ton of great content to write about? Well – this, of course. For the first time ever, I’ve found myself so overwhelmed that I can barely complete a thought.

I. Can’t. Believe. It.

I LOVE blogging and all the many hours of research that goes into it gives me some sort of super nerdy pleasure. So the fact that I feel like throwing a few things into a bag and running wherever the sunset takes me for a few days, instead of doing what I love to do on the daily (Blog, gardening, social media, learning, and ‘lunching’) baffles me.

I don’t have writers block. Quite the contrary, actually. But for some reason, the perfectionist in me has not currently been allowing me to sit down and write the way I want things written. So, instead, I have been focusing on some of my favourite light-hearted series’ and then multi-tasking. Multi-tasking meaning that I can’t focus on 1 thing, but am instead in the middle of 100 things and completing none of them. This is new.

What do you think? Is this being overwhelmed, or do I just have a major case of wanderlust with a side of ‘attention span of a fruitfly’?

No worries, I’m not flaking out on you guys. I just wanted to let you know what was going on in my world since I usually post every other day.

Happy Summer!



Recycled Book Reading Challenge: The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts


Hi there 🙂 Happy May Day!

This was a good one. I got a bit sucked into reading this book. It took awhile to get into it, but once I did, it was a pretty easy read.

I have no idea how this book came to be in my possession. For some reason, I think it might have been a ‘pass it along’ find.

I liked the storyline of the book. Basically, an old home is being renovated into a glam historical hotel and all of the characters this involves. There’s also a parallel storyline, one which involves a ghost – Lizzie. This was by far what intrigued me the most. She’s waiting for ‘Billy’ and although the people who have been used to having her around for awhile value her and aren’t so afraid, they find themselves on a mission to find out her story and who Billy is.

The only thing I don’t like about this situation is that this is the 2nd book of a 3 book series. I can fill in the gaps from the 1st book, so that’s not any kind of problem. However, I really want to know what happens in book 3! I’m not a big romance person, so I could kind of care less what happens with fictional personal relationships. However, there is a ghost mystery intertwined in this story and THAT is what I want to get to the heart of! Has anyone here read the 3rd book? If so, please let me know what happened with Eliza!
