"P" is for Petered Out

I have changed the title of what I promised this post would be about. Ever since I started this blog, I have hinted at a huge injury I had as a teen, especially since I started telling my stuntman stories. When I made up my A to Z schedule for the month, I said that today 'P' would be for picnic table. I was finally going to tell the story. However, it is not going to happen.

It not that I am trying to hide the story. I'm not and I really want to tell it, but I want to do the story justice. If I write it tonight, it will just be cranked out to get it done.

Normally when I blog, I have time to craft my stories and some of them build for a couple of weeks before they actually get posted. In a blog hop requiring me to post every day, I get a little bogged down. I love the A to Z Challenge and will participate again next year, but tonight I am just worn out.

I just started a new job that I love this week, but it is physically demanding. The weekend before I started the job, I worked 16 hours (4 p.m. to 8 a.m.) on both Saturday and Sunday. When I got off work on Monday morning, I reported immediately to my new job and put in another 8 hours. By the time I got to bed, I was what my grandma called 'petered out.' I was done.

I know that was two days ago, but I just haven't totally recuperated yet and really want to tell the picnic table story properly. When the blog hop is over (the end of the month) I promise that I will get to it soon.

Thank you for your Patience and Happy 'P' Day!

  3. I'm hitting that petered out point too! I've struggled with the last few posts and I'm stressing about next week already because I haven't even picked some of the words that I'm using! Yikes!!

    I just started a new job too and I can empathize! It's hard to adjust to a new schedule and incorporate all the things that you want to be doing!

    1. I really understand wanting more hours in the day. Although, then I would be even more tired.

  4. I am positive that everyone doing this challenge understands! I love the topic of the post I did for today, but last night when I was writing it, I was exhausted, so my writing in the post is crap. I may fix it later today, but probably won't. Just don't have the energy to care all that much :) For me, it's not the doing of the posts that is so rough, but all the reading and commenting! It's fun, but just so much work.

    1. I have really fallen behind on the reading. I was taking in about 50 a day for two weeks. I don't think I have looked at any this week.

  5. I totally feel the same way. A to Z has been fun, but the marathon nature of it has caused me to put up some less than steller posts. I look forward to May, when I can really take the time to properly craft and edit each post before it goes out.

  10. Darn. I really wanted to hear that story! I completely understand though. Sometimes its better to wait for things to be done better than to try to rush something and do a bad job of it.
