Fall is Almost Official – Where is Everyone?

Every year, about this time, my WordPress stops.  Very very little traffic in or out.  I, usually, stop writing because everyone else seems to.  But it has been over a month and I have had 7 comments to respond to from over 100 authors I follow.  It just seems, well,wrong, somehow.  I am keeping this one short because of the topic.  Fall will be official on the 21st (22nd?), about 2 weeks.  I know getting back into school, taking care of the children, getting ready for college, and so on just kind of make it a natural time to stop, but, hey, I almost have to leave the house just to know that the Zombie Apocalypse hasn’t occurred and I am the only person left in the world.  It has given me time to do things around here.  My Sis has needed care which I have provided the best I can.  My Fallout 4 world is doing wonderfully well and I am into the levels above 50 and running settlements and protecting the world just fine.  I have a buddy who I play online golf with and have gone through some drama there with my old guild and one of its members.  I am now in a new guild, a small one, with good friends and run by my buddy.

My sister is doing much better and I now visit daily to changer her dressing and wrap her surgical wound.  She has problems with her memory similar to mine from the stroke, so I have been able to console and help her with that.  This has taken some of the pressure from my mother and I am glad for that.

Personal life has settled into an almost farce of 3 sites where I try to meet someone and I find I don’t really care much, anymore.  I am perfectly fine living in this wonderful home with just my cat.  If someone comes along, great; if not,that is great, too.  Probably why I don’t see much there – I don’t care.

Have begun watching season 7 of Game of Thrones.  I always said I wouldn’t pay HBO for the series as I got mad at the way they just left us hanging after season 5 (4?), actually in the middle of a season.  However, Youtube, pays HBO and I pay Youtube, so – not the same!  It is a great series and I have enjoyed all of it.  Season 7 has been absolutely superb so far.

Well, that’s me for now.  Hope to hear back from some of you and look forward to reading some new posts!!!

    Every now and then I feel like the only person blogging too. Traffic is up, down, non-existent…that’s how it goes, I guess.

    Just found your blog and happy I did. I will he back 🙂

    Hello Scott! I have to keep meeting and adding people to follow since so many aren’t blogging anymore.
    It sounds like you’ve got your hands full with your sister’s health. So sorry to hear about that, but she’s lucky to have you!

    Glad to hear you’re still blogging!

    Just figured out that something got changed in WP (I swear I didn’t do it). The choice for emailing me new posts was unchecked. I have since done so and expect to see all of your posts in my email now.

    Hello there! For some reason your emails fell off my email inbox. Came here to see if you were okay.
    Happy fall!

    Hi Scott
    I am glad your sister is getting much better. It sounds like you are a great brother and son.
    Why do you write? Why do you keep a blog?
    I just found interesting that you said you stopped writing because everyone seemed to.
    Sending you blessings! 🙂

      I began writing just to have something to do which sounded interesting. At one point I decided I would write every day for 1 year. When that completed I simply kept writing. I like sharing my thoughts and what is going on. I enjoy feeling the other people out there and having a connection. You are each and all my friends, some closer than others (you, for one) and it is the only way in which to connect with you all. There is probably more buried deep within myself involving being connected and not judged. I do love you all.

        Thank you for answering me. I wondered about it, because you mentioned writing less or actually stopping because others also stopped. I didn’t get that, I don’t get that.
        I guess I was wondering if you wrote for yourself or for others.
        I kept stopping by to read what you have to say, and was wondering why the silence. I figured you were busy with your sister.
        Do what pleases you, write or go silent, just follow your bliss!
        Blessings! 🙂

    fall………..my absolute favorite time of year and a time when life gets a little busier and therefore I have less energy at the end of the day to do much else but lie in bed and watch Netflix……….may your day be blessed…….

    Well, good news xD you make me feel bad for not being active xD however I was thinking much the same. I am trying to be more active, it’s actually easier since school has started because I’m already writing things and working on the computer anyway ^,^ hopefully at the very least you will have something new to read each week ^~^
    ♡♡♡♡♡ I am very glad to hear your sister is ding well. Be good, and if you want to be bad, be good at that (;
