Let's try to revive this blog.....AGAIN

I wonder how many times you can revive a blog before it really just stays flatlined. I've discovered something about myself. I throw myself into things 110% I do them everyday. I consume myself with them. I've done it with:
  •  Scrapbooking - Ben has 3 scrapbooks for his first 2 years of life
  • Weight Watchers - I lost 50 pounds in 6 months
  • Blogging - I blogged almost every day for quite awhile 
  • My bill sheet in Excel - I have at least 8 months of a checkbook that is broken down into categories - its totalled up and I can tell you the exact percentage of our income that went to each category
  • The list goes on and on.
But once I burn out on something it's next to impossible for me to get back in gear.
  • Scrapbooking - The twins don't even have one book and Ben's stops at age 2.
  • Weight Watchers - I'm still paying every month for WW but not only have I not been tracking anything I've put back on about 35 - 40 lbs.
  • Blogging - This one is self explanitory. I my last post was 8/5/2010
  • My bill sheet is sporatic at best.
The worst part is I WANT to do all of these things but I can't. Its like there are invisible chains on me that won't let me. Don't get me wrong, its not depression. I'm actually not feeling bad (I did quit taking the medicine. The hot flashes were driving me NUTS) but I can't seem to bring myself to do the things that I want or need to. Even though I know I can do them. In fact I'm actually pretty good at most of them. I know from past experience I can be successful at all of them. If I can bring myself to actually do them. I'm not sure why I can't. But its something I plan to work on.
