Funk, now with links

It must be something in the air. A major air mass covering a vast portion of North America. Perhaps it's the season and thoughts naturally darken as we lose daylight. Whatever the cause, many of the bloggers I read have been in a funk lately. Heck, I certainly was last Friday.

I think it started with Sunshine Scribe debating the role of her blog, how it might evolve, whether she would continue to blog.

Almost immediately after, Amalah wrote that blogging had been onerous of late.

And then Her Bad Mother posted about the lingering cold in her household (and, oh, do they linger when there's a small one in the house) and how the desire to post just has not been very strong. (This link isn't exact, as Blogger has decided not to show me HBM's site right now.)

Bub and Pie did not threaten to quit blogging or post less, but wrote about the anger that has been welling up and accumulating.

While my funk has not entirely dissipated, especially when this cough continues to rattle my brain, it is hard not to smile at least a little when an enthusiastic voice joins in for "Engine Roll Call" (the Thomas song that begins "They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight") or fills in every other word of a storybook unerringly and with glee. And when I went in to ask him what he wanted a bit later, he replied, "Live happily ever after"--and things seem just a bit brighter.

You are SERIOUSLY not kidding. We really need to do some tox screens on the entire air mass hovering over North America, with particular attention to southern Ontario.

Mama Tulip announced last night that she's closing up shop - no more blog.

Beanie Baby just posted today about how blogging has turned into more of a pressure than a joy.

In addition to Sunshine Scribe and me, Beck (of Frog and Toad are Friends) and Oh, the Joys fall into the "had a really crappy weekend" category.

Kristen of Home on the Fringe has been posting about nothing but the awfulness for more than a week now.

And I'm sure I'm forgetting a few people. Ouch.

(On the bright side, I'm feeling great after six hours of sleep last night, due to a strategically placed piece of string tying Bub's doorknob to the banister. It's a temporary measure - don't tell CAS on me.)

The word that comes to mind is miasma, some sort of creeping vapor that is infecting the blogosphere--though I have noticed the concentration in Ontario.

My son and a sudden burst of productiveness have gone a long ways to making me feel better.

Now if I could just get rid of this cough!

I know this wasn't your intention, and I probably should feel worse now ... but it is helpful to see I am not alone. Maybe there is a mass hovering over North America as B&P suggested.
