Transitioning into a Jedi Master

One of the things I have been wrestling with lately is my lack of blogger-focus. I kind of remind myself of Luke when he goes to get trained in the force by Yoda, but all I can focus on is moving the damn rock instead of moving the damn rock (do I know what I am talking about, or what?). It's total force-by-blogging... And evident that I am very much a nerd and my husband's nerdiness is rubbing off on me.

Or something.

Anyway, if the paragraph above is not evidence enough that I am a rambler, I'll repeat: I ramble, and the complete lack of focus on my blog is even starting to bug me. I think about the bloggers I read and the blogs they write, and they write about one or two aspects of their life, and leave the rest to the imagination... Jamie entertains with her craftiness and interwebz-finds, Kerry explains what it is like being an American in Australia, and TheBloggess writes about being TheBloggess...

And what do I write about?

I don't even know.

So, I am going to start focusing. Focus, focus, focus. I am going to make that plane rise out of the swamp, and then I am going to ruck-march a small green alien. From now on, I am going to try to keep it to the transitions in my life (you know, using that dumb title I came up with a few months ago in a coffee-induced haze): becoming and growing as an Army family, living diseased, and writing/publishing. And food. Cause I like food. If I'm good, I'll be able to link all of those things together. That will make for some interesting titles, eh?

We'll see how this goes...


  1. Thank you for your kind words of support. If it helps you at all, I always look at it as "People just want to know how I'm doing and really don't care what I write about. They just want to read something. Any thing." And that's definitely how I feel about your blog. I don't care about the ramblings. I'm just happy to hear from you.

    1. Hehe, thanks, Kerry! It makes me feel like a hot mess, but I appreciate that I have a friend thinking of me! I love reading about your life in Australia and how it compares! How are you liking the new job?
