I have lost my mojo

Blogging mojo, that is. Not that it was previously all that great or prolific. But now, I just don't have that much to say. Well, that's not exactly true. I always have something to say, but not so much on the internet anymore. I don't know why - maybe because of my lack of internet at home. Really, you don't want to get me started on that particular sore subject, but in brief - we had to move to a new house in Oman and it's been 3 months and we just got a home phone installed, internet is probably another 3 months away. Imagine me. Imagine me dealing with this without my head exploding multiple times. Yeah. Next subject.

It could have something to do with how I have to edit and re-edit and re-re-edit my posts to make sure that they are vague enough. Our virtual world is growing smaller and smaller and I am an American who lives in the Middle East and it's just makes sense to be fairly cautious about what I put out here for the masses (all 3 or 4 of you...hi mom!)

But in all honesty, it's probably just a combination of laziness on my part and lack of awe about where we are living. Oman is fine and blah blah blah, but (as you might be able to tell from the "blah blah blah" part of this sentence) it's just doesn't set me on fire. Sure, maybe it was all fascinating and interesting and had that "oh wow" factor the first few months that we lived here. But I think a combination of the heat and the dust and the dust and the heat, not to mention the heat and the dust has just worn me down. Plus having to move to a new house, lack of phone, lack of internet, and various other things - I'm just done. Ready to move on. Of course, that won't happen for a while yet, so as my very funny husband loves to say "here's a straw...suck it up!"

So I'm sucking up and doing all I can to enjoy the rest of our time here - we've been on Dhow cruises, we're visiting museums, we're going dune bashing and turtle watching and travelling around the region. But in a way it seems a bit forced and so I don't feel much like writing about it. That's not to say I won't write more at a later time, or won't start up a new! improved! blog when we get to our next post (no, we don't know where we are going yet). But for the time being, posting will continue to be sporadic if at all.

But hey! You can always call me! I have a phone now!
