Me, The General, Edy's and 1 Corona....

*insert Garth Brooks refrain of 'Two Pina Colodas" here*

It's been a hard month of nothing, and I mean crickets chirping kind of nothing. No men, very little interaction with the girls *my fault not theirs*, which leads me to tonight. My Friday night-in ritual has officially gotten old and tired enough to become my Friday night rut, as in stuck in.

I'm in the mood to shake things up a bit, but I'm lacking that little thing called motivation. And it seems to be passing over into the other parts of my life. I've given up on dating, cooking *almost*, mixing it up with friends, taking care of myself and just about everything has hit the "meh" on the 'want to do' scale. So here's what I need. Some inspiration from the readers out there. I need to get off my butt and do something, see people and be somewhere that involves meeting those of the opposite sex....any ideas?

I too am spending the evening in. Although it's not become a ritual, I just need some down time in my week! :)

Why not try a blogger party? Those seem fun, and I would certainly go if they had them near me.

I'm in the same rut. So when you find an answer, let me know.

I was in the rut last year.. most likely due to some personal things happening in my life, so I accepted the rut for what it was, knowing that when it was time, I would come out of it. I did, approximately 8-10 months into it. I know that seems like a long time but it was beneficial to me. Now that I'm out of the rut, I was excited to get out again.. have fun, date.
I'm hearing it a lot though.. from everywhere (these ruts). What's happening to us?
I get in the occasional weekend rut.. or 3 day rut, but I won't allow it to go beyond that. Sometimes you literally have to force yourself out of it (not easy).. but once you do it you feel great. Increase your exercise.. whatevery you're doing (whether it's nothing at all or some minor routine), step it up! Easier said that done, but without a doubt, you'll feel better.

Kickboxing.

That's what everybody always says. I think I saw it on Discovery Health once. Kickboxing really solves everything. :]

Pick up a new hobby~~~ rock climbing, swing dancing, softball, anything to get you up and out of the house. Go play tennis, by yourself and pair up with the first unattached male at the tennis court.

Hate those days - unfotunatelly, I have too many of them lately. My job wores me down to the point I get to bed by ten pm on Fridays and black out completely...

But I managed to squeeze myself for some action this Saturday, and didn't get into bed before 3 am. YEY for me!

Then again, my upcoming opening will be filled with semi good pieces, as I was too tiered all Sunday through to actually care about what I was putting on the canvas...

My only advice? Put your sexiest shoes on, get out of the house and make some noise! And then, off course, tell us all about it... :D

It's my birthday next weekend. I am going out somewhere. I am not sure where, but it will be awesome. Cuz I'll be there. Everywhere I go is fabulous and awesome.

This past weekend I went on a long walk on a deserted island in the Bahamas. It was really Rehoboth beach and it was fairly packed, but in my head it was just me and the beach. Outlook may be handy, but an imagination is much more useful.

I know how you feel. I've been in a rut for about 9 months. It's been good..and it's been bad. What about trying something sensual yet sexy? Like a yoga class? Probably not the best place to talk...but you will meet people with similar interests!

Happy almost birthday, Chuckles.
