I’ve been staring at the screen on my computer, wondering what on earth I’m going to write about tonight. The urge to just blow it off is strong. After all, I haven’t written anything at all in quite some time, now suddenly I’m asking my brain to come up with something every single day? What was I thinking? I sternly tell myself to get it together and come up with something. I am going to fulfill this commitment.

So here I sit in my favorite red chair. My laptop is resting on one of the arms. I have to balance it just so and make sure my arm doesn’t hang too far off the bumpy-textured upholstery. If I don’t pay attention, soon my arm will go to sleep and I will have sharp pins and needles to painfully deal with.


I take a sip of my sweet chai tea, breathing in it’s spicy warmth as I look around the room for something…anything to write about. I lean my head back, resting it against the furry heat of my little dog Charlie. He is sleeping peacefully in his “safe spot” across the back of my neck. Maggie, who is curled on my lap sighs and nestles in closer. I reach over and pet my little grand puppy who is nestled at my side. He seems to have finally accepted the idea of staying with us while Mimi is on vacation.

The steady click clunk click of the jeans twirling themselves around and around in the dryer is slowly soothing me to sleep. My head starts to nod and I can barely keep my eyes open. It has been a long day.

Still, here I sit, wondering what on earth I’m going to write about tonight.

    I find that I have sessions like this too. It does get better.

    Now that takes talent… writing a blog post about nothing to write about on your blog post.

    Nice. I enjoyed reading about nothing, smelling the sweet Chai tea, listening to the clothes in the dryer, tumbling around and around. Sometimes nothing is a sweet something!

    It sounds like your red chair is the coziest spot ever…with all three pets cuddled up next to you! I really enjoyed this post. You reminded me to rely on my senses when I feel stuck. You definitely had something to write about!
