I is for Inertia


is for inertia.


I'm starting to remember why I decided to only post once a week when I started this blog.

  1. It's because you have to make Clay People!! Why don't you cook some of the ones you don't like?! Oh, that would have been "C" for cannibalism...hmm..."D" for dinner..."F" for food..."L" for Lunch...there you go!! ;-)

  5. I relate as well - it's why I have to write all my posts before the challenge starts or I'll end up quitting. It's okay to let go of some things....

  12. I is for lots of good words, like indolence, insanity, irritability, idiots (what I'm currently dealing with!), and hey, it's spring, so also impatiens!

    But mostly, i is for Incomparable and Irreplaceable - and that's what you are!

  16. And now I can mark "See a clay figure curled up in the fetal position" off my bucket list...

  18. A Clay figure created by Stephanie is worth a thousand words :) (Imagine a "older" clay figure smiling).

  19. no kidding! i don't even have to make people...

    but finding images to go with my topics can prove difficult...

    plus the inspiration for the posts...

  20. Gotta love inertia. And I agree...I find 4 times a week trying and I pretty much just write (and have a few photos).

    You're doing a great job (if that helps!)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Right on. And I am incapable of thinking ahead, it seems.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That is a comically ironic post. I love it.

  23. A picture tells a thousand words.
    Or does a picture "paint" a thousand words....? I don't remember.
    So your picture would "mold" a thousand words. Or one specific word in this case.
    Your picture molds one word. Perfect!

    1. Ha! I appreciate the mini stream-of-consciousness! (at first I wrote "train of consciousness", but it just didn't look right. Thank you, google.)

  24. We're all rooting for you Stephanie!

  25. I imagine this is the day for that insight! I am sad for clay stefanie, as she looks ill, but this is still a great post!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hang in there! You can do it.. although, I am nnot sure where you find the time! I can't even find the time to scan some old pictures for posts.. .. WOW..

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ha, the alphabet thing seems hard. Maybe think of what you want to write and them fit it into the letter you're up to? Anyway love the word inertia.

  28. You and your blog are such a gift. The laughter and joy wrapped about nuggets of truth that I get from your posts is awesome. I wish I could give you a great big thank you hug! My gut ached for you this morning seeing your clay figure on the floor...I can relate though.... Thank you for sharing your gift and your self with us.

    1. This is such a kind comment. Thanks for the warm and fuzzies. And don't worry your gut...I'm perfectly ok! Honestly, if a blog post is really enough to make me curl up on the floor and give up, I seriously need to work on my coping skills. Ha!

      Delete
  29. HA! That is exactly how I feel some days :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Aw...such a sweet little image. I honestly can't imagine how you manage to do this daily. You are truly my new hero! :)
