The well has run dry.

I'm too pooped to pop, I'm flat as a tack and my well has run dry.
I'm worn out, wrung out like an old dish rag and I'm petered out.

I've got nothing in me. I didn't have anything in me yesterday and I don't have anything in me again this morning.

My Mojo ain't a-working anymo.

Oh, I have thoughts and I have ideas. I think of something and I think "well, I'll blog about that!"
But when it comes to crunch time, I wonder what in the heck I was thinking. That idea was certainly a stupid idea.

I've read through all my favorite blogs looking for inspiration and then checked out their followers as well.
I even went cruising with the "next blog" button and ran across some very uninteresting blogs in foreign languages. I knew they were uninteresting even though I couldn't read them... because they had pictures of soccer players or sparkly shoes. Or groups of dark-haired girls smiling prettily for the camera.

And do you know what I found? What inspired me?

Nothing.
Nada.
Zip.
Zilch.

I even thought of taking the 100 step challenge. You know... where you take 100 steps and then take a photo of whatever is right there in front of you. The problem is, I don't have it in me to walk 100 steps. And besides, I would have to take the camera down of it's shelf and unpack it.
I mean, how hard is that?
Well, in the mood I'm in today, even that is too much of an effort.

Oh, there's nothing wrong with me at all and I feel just fine.
I just feel flat as a tack.

My get-up-and-go has just got-up-and-went.

When it comes back to me, I'll let you know, okay?

Sounds like a good day for you to curl up on the couch with a good book or a good movie. Gosh you work so hard - a blah and blob day is totally ok in my mind!

Enjoy your day - do nothing - rest - you need it!

Kathy said...

Well, you said it all on this subject. I hope you get some spark back and start to feel more like yourself again. Have a great weekend.

Oh my friend, that is awful for you and for us. I'm with Narelle on this one - get yourself a bit of Sam and a bit of chocolate and be a veg.
What is your favourite veg? I quite like a bit of Sam and a lot of chocolate.

Or are you working? I am - boo hoo. I'm also on here ignoring the children. Lol!

I have a million things to do, but I just don't want to do anything...
I have my young lad until Monday, but he's no trouble at all - other than constantly having to remind him to go to the toilet.

I might get him dressed for the weather and wear us both out by taking a long walk. Then he can play with his Teletubbies while I watch "Mask." A good dose of Sam can cure most ills!

Well we all have those days days and to be frank just hearing about your day and the things that go on around you is interesting to me. So just be your and the blogs will come.

I see by your next post you got inspiration so I'll go there. But I like you, inspired or not. To me we just have to all hang out together, just like regular friends, even though we can't be witty and cutting-edge every moments. Believe me, every time I write something funny I always think, "Well, that's probably the last thing of interest I'll ever say." Of course, I'm right but YOURS will come back!!

It's all in how you say it ... call it being uninspired. You say it with such ...???... aw heck, I don't know the word. I will say you are very entertaining. This is a good thing. NOTHING like the soccer pics or cardboard cutouts (which, I suppose could be interesting).

The W.O.W. factor said...

Heck Tater..you've got more Mojo than I! Send some warm temps and sunshine my way and my Mojo can sing and dance again! (good thing I live with no one within 2 miles of me...or I might get sent to a looney farm then)
I've got so many other things in my fire right now and I think I miss blogging more than I do these projects!

Neas Nuttiness said...

Believe me when I say - been there and felt that way!
Hope you get some "get up and go" real soon!
