Homer's Travels: Short, Unenthusiastic, Sub-Par

Short, Unenthusiastic, Sub-Par

Last night, after reading my latest post about our Notre Dame vacation, the wife said she was a little disappointed. To loosely paraphrase: I used a lot of short sentences, there was a lack on enthusiasm, and the post was generally sub-par. I have to agree with her assessment - I have written better. Lately I have been in a rut. All my posts seems to be about hiking (which I am enjoying very much) or past vacations. I have been suffering from two things: -1- lack of activities outside the house. We haven't been doing much since the beginning of the year. We had a week or two of cool stuff and twelve weeks of nothing. Our life is a little dull right now and my writing reflects this. -2- Writer's block. I have had few good ideas about what to post.

I hope this will change soon. Currently my life is dominated by work. I will not talk about work in Homer's Travels. We do have a few things planned for the next couple months so I hope to have something to post soon.

Until then ... a Haiku:

We are Antsy for a Vacation


  1. Tell The Wife to get her own blog.

  2. PS I like the hiking stuff.

  3. PPS At least your wife reads her husband's blog.

  4. Thanks for the chuckle ... I really needed it.

  5. First of all, my life is not dull right now. Second, my complaints about the Notre Dame entry was strictly about the lack of enthusiasm for what was an absolutely perfect football weekend (I know The Husband does not like football, but it really was perfect). Third, I don't write blogs ... I inspire them ... I can't believe I just typed that. I'm fairly confident I'm going to burn in hell now, but before I do, let the record show that I really envy the work The Husband has done on his blog (why does that sound dirty?).

  6. You two crack me up. I love your blog and don't find it boring at all. Okay, the football thing was boring I have to admit. But I really like hearing about the antics of "the wife".

    I will try to start reading my "husbands" blog, I promise.
