Well, it is day four of the challenge and I am already behind the eight ball. A tad discombobulated if you catch my drift. It’s not that I have writers block, as that usually happens around the letter O.  

With this being my eleventh attempt at this marathon, the same thing happens every year. I think I am far more organized than I really am, then in preparation to jump on a jet plane for my birthday trip, work trumps A-Z every time.

That said, what a difference a year makes. Aside from sucking the hind tit on the challenge, my work life balance is amazing. I love my job and am looking forward to the adventures I have planned for 2024.

The honest truth is that some days I just have more drive than others. There have been several times in the last decade where I have been a tad overwhelmed and wondered if this was the end of the challenging writing road for me. 

If you’re stopping by for the first time, I am pleased to report that today isn’t that day!

As far as the word I selected for the letter D. Due to what I have on my plate, I may be emotionally confused or uncertain that I will stay on track for the challenge....

But say my word of the day three times fast. How fun was that ???


  1. Hi!
    Visiting fro another AtoZ challenge blog. I totally relate to this post though - it's difficult to keep up, and I've often fallen short of finishing up. But really, anything you write is good - it let's people get to know you more. I'm sure you can do it!

    My posts are listed at The AtoZ of me and my inspirations

  2. Discombobulated sounds like a disaster for Bob. It is a funny word. As my mom said, A big part of life is showing up. Enjoy what you can with A to Z. That's my plan and my excuse for not getting X done. That is a hard one. Visiting from A to Z,

  3. I always loved that word! Now reading backwards through your posts. LOL!

  4. Love this! Good for you for jumping in for the challenge even without knowing the outcome! I'm more apt to not sign up if I doubt I can finish. Even this year, I'm pushing hard at the start for fear of other commitments getting in the way. I need to take a page from your book! Visiting from

  5. A certain amount of confusion adds zest to the day!
