As it does every year, the travel season for my work, no matter how much or how little travel I have, tends to knock all energy and inspiration out of me. The hours are filled with constantly checking my calendar to see what’s coming next, in the next hour, the next day, the next week. When I’m out, I’m constantly checking Yelp reviews so I don’t end up in a fast food drive-thru, which inevitably happens at least once a trip just because I’d rather eat in my room with HGTV. The Property Brothers were my constant companions this trip. I now find my self looking at house listings and thinking about how the space would look with two walls torn down.
Those are the tough parts of travel. I try to make it less tough by venturing out and enjoying the area. Last week, I was in Las Vegas, so I saw Britney Spears. It was more than a little ridiculous, but really fun, and I’m glad I went. It was like I was a teenager again. The next few days, I was in Reno, which doesn’t have as much excitement, but does have Lake Tahoe to the direct west. So I drove up to see the lake, and on my whole drive, I went from sunshine to rain to snow and to a beautiful rainbow in less than two hours.
Now, travel season is over. And as usual, I’m feeling antsy to write and to keep my blog going. This month, I’ve joined a group of my blogging friends to post 3 times a week. I’m always hesitant to tell everyone that I’m blogging for a challenge. It tends to make me feel pressured to find something to write about. However, I think I’m evolving a bit with what I want to talk about, beyond the books I’ve read. We might be seeing a few more life (mostly puppy) updates and a little bit more about other entertainment I’m consuming. I’ve also embarked on a new project with my best girl friends, so I’m looking forward to letting you know about that in due time. I think having a goal of writing more will let me experiment with how those things work within my little space on the Internet.
