Can I Become “Un-Lost”? *Pretty Please*

I maneuver the car swiftly through the intersection as the water sloshes near my tires.  It hasn’t let up since I awoke this morning.  The thirty minute drive extends to forty on the river highway of 495.

“Where should I meet you?” I ask as she picks up after the third dial.

“Just pull into the garage,” she responds.

I find a spot quickly and put the car in park.  A quick glance in the rear-view mirror reveals disheveled hair and smudged eye makeup.  A sarcastic *perfect* mumbles out of my lips.  I grab for my purse as my phone buzzes loudly in the middle console.

I select the answer button, impatiently, assuming it’s her, but as another her’s voice grazes my ear, I realize my haste assumption.  “Hey mom,” I reply softly; my laundry list of to-do items scurry around disconnectedly in my brain.

“Hi sweetie,” she says.  “I read your latest blog post and you seem a little… disheveled.”

“Oh no, mom; I’m fine.” I respond.  “I just wanted to write about being in a blogging funk, since it happens to a lot of people.  That’s all.”

Since, you know, just because I write about being in a blogging funk doesn’t mean I’m actually in a funk…

Right?

This past week, The Nester challenged us to come up with an “un-word” for 2014.  An un-word is a word that you are rejecting for the year.  It is a word that you are not.  In fact, you would like to un-do it.

At first, I didn’t know what to write about, or if I would write at all.  Because me, with my disheveled hair, haste phone call pick-ups and blog posts about being in blogging funks – I mean obviously I am perfect.  Plus, I already wrote about my real word for 2014 – so why come up with an un-word?

But, as I tried to write this week and failed at that too, I realized that lately I’ve been feeling a little… lost.

I’m currently in limbo at work.

I’m intermittently attending the gym this month.

And, my blog is being… funky.

Suddenly, I discovered that probably the best possible thing that I could be doing is coming up with my un-word for 2014.  So, ladies and gentlemen, here it is…  For 2014, my un-word is lost.  As in, I would like to become un-lost.  Some of my life events (like work) are a little out of my control, but hopefully with a little more focus and concentration, I can improve my gym attendance, blogging lifestyle and, overall, get myself out of this little lost funk I’m in.  And, this will hopefully include letting you in on a little secret about this here blog too… Ooh foreshadowing!

Now, I’m off to go find my makeup remover….

*Have you been feeling funky lately?  What is your un-word for 2014?

  1. My un-word for 2014 is “rudderless”. I was supposed to start a new job on 1/6. It was not funded so is delayed to April, but I think it is time to figure out what to be when I grow up. The polar vortex here in Chiberia is NOT helping me.

    I hope you will be unlost soon. Happens sometimes. I have faith this too will pass!

    • Erica – I am feeling similarly. I hope you work through your rudderless too! The name ‘Chiberia’ is funny… I was wondering where that came from.. power through, dear! Sending you warmish thoughts from DC!

  3. I am curious to find out what blog system you have been
    working with? I’m experiencing some minor
    security issues with my latest site and I would like to find something more risk-free.
    Do you have any solutions?
