I'm So Behind!

Hello, gentle readers!
I am so behind. Here it is Monday evening and I’m just writing my blog now. This is unusual for me because I generally have it done and ready to go on Sunday. I was a Girl Scout—I believe in being prepared―but I wasn’t. And usually, the words are in my head long before Sunday afternoon. This time, they weren’t. Why?
Once again, I have no topic. Not really. My thoughts are scattered, like leaves scurrying down the street, pushed by the wind. I could blame this on the day job, which is currently whipping my butt. Or I could tell you that it’s my work in progress. The story is going really well at the moment and it’s in my head constantly, which I love, but it doesn’t leave a lot of room for anything else (there’s only so many brain cells).
Here’s an example of what I’m talking about. Just yesterday, I was telling my DH something about our son’s upcoming visit and suddenly, I lost the whole thread of what I was saying. Just like that, it was gone, replaced with dialogue for a scene I was working on earlier and I scurried off to write that down before it was gone, too. My DH (who knows me so well and loves me despite my foibles) just shook his head and walked away. I don’t think we ever picked up the conversation either because, as you know, one thing leads to another.  
Oh wait, maybe I could blame my reluctant brain on the fact that it’s spring and spring in Arizona is just too beautiful to ignore. The weather has been perfect and the sunsets gorgeous. Flowers are everywhere, bright blooms carpeting the landscape. My citrus trees are in bloom as well and the fragrance is intoxicating. Maybe that's messing with my brain!  
So there you are…all the excuses of why I didn’t have a topic for this week….and what do you know? I was still able to write this blog.

Until next time, remember to spread kindness wherever you go.
