Overcoming Bloglessness

Sudoku Sucks!

Leave a comment

My husband’s mom is arriving today for a  visit. Usually, when I’m expecting guests, I’m cleaning like mad before their arrival, but Mom’s eyesight is not so good. She doesn’t see dust and fingerprints as well as I do, so I’m under no pressure to go all Martha Stewart on this place.

She’s been a wonderful mother-in-law, never critical or bossy, never interfering or condescending.    I love and respect her.  She’s the kind of mom I wish I’d had.

My only complaint is the Sudoku. Please don’t make me do Sudoku!

Last time she visited she brought a whole book of the stuff. She sat me down at the table and schooled me, step by tedious step through one puzzle. When we finished, I was so relieved! But then she turned the page and suggested I work the next puzzle by myself. I felt like a pouty schoolgirl, burdened with some incomprehensible homework assignment. Luckily, my husband entered the room, distracting her so I could escape.

I’m a word person.  I like crossword puzzles.  I’ve always hated math.  I hate numbers in boxes.  I hate Sudoku.

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.
