en·nui

/änˈwē/
noun
1. a feeling of listlessness and dissatisfaction arising from a lack of occupation or excitement.
synonyms:boredom, tedium, listlessness, lethargy, lassitude, languor, weariness, enervation

I have it. Which is not uncommon. If I'm ever lying around and proclaim "I have... " my husband quickly replies "ennui?". I don't use it because its status as a 50 cent word carries a certain pretentiousness. Nah. It merely sums up perfectly a condition I find myself afflicted with on a regular basis. I get bored and restless easily, I've learned.

The point of all this? I have nary an idea what to write about today. I have several subjects in mind, but the ability to getting fingers to keyboard in an organized fashion eludes me. This morning I drove around for twenty minutes after dropping Kiddo off just to find a place to set up camp. To study. Here I sit at Starbucks, my chosen destination, with a few photos edited and 5 pages of my GRE prep manual read. I've got to get it together. I need to get organized. Thoughts, materials, time... all of it need some serious organization. This post could use some, too.

So today I'm going to stop talking. I'm going to order a second caffeinated beverage. I'm going to buckle down and get some work done. I'm going to bust my bum at CrossFit. Sore muscles be damned. I'm going to stop wandering around like a leaf in a breeze, wishing I had established a schedule. A balance of work, study, home, and personal life. I'm getting there, but re-dedication to the cause is necessary.

Here is a glimpse at our weekend. Although a weekly trip to the orchard is to be expected this time of year, I used the opportunity to play with previously undiscovered camera settings. Fact: I now want to miniaturize everything
