Several weeks ago, I wrote about the fact that I was suffering from blogger’s block. I was really interested in writing. I started between 15 and 20 different posts, had several posts that I wanted to comment on, but was just not able to put together any coherent thoughts. I deleted all of the drafts that I started. Since then, I’ve been steadily losing interest. I’m hoping this is normal – that blogging is something that should really have its ups and downs – much like other things in life.
Now, having said that, I have to add that right now I put the blame on this lack of desire squarely on the shoulders of baseball – and in particular the Boston Red Sox. Although I hope today’s Rolling Rally in Boston was wonderful (and it is an absolutely beautiful day for such an event), the trip to the playoffs has decimated my mental state. Since the Red Sox entered the playoffs, sleep has been fairly non-existent. The World Series in particular was gruesome. I’m quite thankful for my sanity that it only lasted 4 games. Saturday night’s game – at 4hrs and 19 mns – ended just before 1AM. Yikes! I turn into a pumpkin at about 10PM. Fortunately, I didn’t have to work on Sunday. However, I was a mess on Monday – and would seriously have done almost anything to be able to stay in bed. As a fan, I’m in a state of euphoria that the Sox managed to win their second series in 4 years – it is a too bad that I’m too tired to actually enjoy it.
