To Keep or Not To Keep

I have been debating for a few months on if I want to keep this blog. I feel frustrated that I don't post more but I also feel like I don't have anything interesting to say. I am a housewife/stay at home Mom, whatever you want to call it. My life just seems to be the same, clean, cook, bills, grocery shop, etc. etc. etc.
I love reading all of your blogs. I may not comment much but I do love reading about everything that is happening in your lives. I don't know if I am just having a pity party right now or what. I can't seem to get back on the eating right & exercise plan. I went to the doctor today and I had to get on the scale. I am so mad at myself for gaining back some of the weight I lost. My doctor asked me if I had seen the surgeon for my hernia to be repaired and I told him I canceled. I told him that I was suppose to be down about 90 lbs. and that I am still paying for all the bills from my brain surgery in December.
I know I am rambling because I have been really stressed about the bills and almost losing our house. OK enough.
Let's see if I can talk about something more positive, like my garden. I am still pulling tons of cherry tomatoes, bell peppers and I will be getting the brussel sprouts off very soon. I finally cut the last of the cabbage because it looked like a garden worm was eating the rest of them. I got 2 batches of coleslaw out of it.
I am suppose to go to Woodsmoke Ranch tomorrow to visit with 2 of my sister in laws. My mother in law called and wants us all to go to see my nephews football game tomorrow. I am thinking about it because I need to get out of the house but always in the back of my mind is money. Are we going to have enough money for gas? I have been trying to get my hubby to take over the checking account so I can sleep at night. My neighbor told him that since her hubby took over their checking account it has been wonderful. I can only dream. LOL
Well, I was going to add some pictures but I want to get ready to watch my 2 programs tonight. Survivor and Grey's Anatomy.

I hope you keep your blog. I feel the same way about talking about the same things, but that's my life. I enjoy blogging so much too. It's nice to look back & see what was going on certain days. I'll understand whatever you decide, but I'm hoping you keep on blogging.

I know what you mean also about bills. Money is soooo tight! Praying for all of our finances! Take care!

Hi Dutch,

Oh I hope you keep your blog...please, please. I like reading about your life I do not think mine is that much more interesting. I am sorry to hear with all the struggles your going through right now. Do not get down on yourself buddy. Even if you post once a month. How come you have to pay the hospital bills, do you not have insurance? If not cant you qualify for some state plan because of your financial troubles? I will always keep you and the family in my prayers.
Big Huge hug!

I feel like you do quite often. Writing is good therapy though, and it is fun to look back at old entries. I enjoy your blog and hope you keep writing.

I do hope that you continue your blog. I think most of us feel that we lead mostly very boring lives with not a lot going on but to others it can read as very interesting. Also blogging can be in a way rather theraputic sometimes. As for the dieting don't worry to much you did it before and you CAN do it again, just in your own time.
Keep smiling
Love Syil xx

Hi Dutch,

I think we are all going through this at the same time. I feel the same way. In fact...my blog is "Under Construction" right now but it's not my blog. It's me.
Hang in there!! Maybe this is a good form of therapy for us. You can always just post the positive here. I wish you the best!!
