By now, some of you may have noticed that I write a new post only about once every three days. It’s not that I don’t have anything to say…ohh…no-no-no! I may be a lot of things, but short on words is never one of them! The thing I am “short on” is TIME. You see, I have approx. ONE HOUR a day to do my beloved blogging and whatever Mommy-ish business I wish to conduct on the World Wide Web.
So at the ghastly hour of 5 a.m, still blinking sleepily, I sit down at my ‘puter, and begin my quest to “do some visiting before I write a new post.” All within my alotted 59 minutes and 59 seconds (unless I need to pack a lunch, hunt down my daughter’s shoes, or take a dump…then it’s more like 58 minutes…).
So I start by checking with the SITs girls because, they are a bloggy version of a coffee shop. You know you will know at least one person if you stop there. Plus, it’s just a nice way to start the day. THEN I remember that I haven’t been by to visit Kate over at thebigpieceofcake. Kate’s wicked funny and I really do like cake.
THEN that makes me think about what I would drink with some cake and I think of Stesha over at hotchocolatecaramelmocha. And while I’m there I see a comment from Courtney over at Theartis6.. The more I read of Courtney’s stuff the more I think her and I are related. Plus, she’s an amazing writer. So I read, I comment, and look at my watch…and nearly fall out of my chair. My 59 minutes and 59 seconds are all but gone. NO! It can’t be! I haven’t even visited themumfiles or pam, or yaya or housewifesavant yet! No fair! Re-do! REDO!!! And I haven’t typed one frickin syllable for my “daily post.”
Crud. Well..all I can do is try again tomorrow. Unless of course the Blog Gods smile upon me and my kids either:
A: Go to bed early
B. Find something to occupy themselves for 15+ minutes (like crayoning on my walls, or emptying an entire dresser, etc).
..in either case I will be granted a few precious extra moments to do some writing. Worse case scenario, I just try again the next morning…and the next..and the next. One way or the tother, I will ‘git ‘er done.
p.s In case you were wondering, it took me three friggin days to write this post cuz…well… the whole link thing is almost more than my pea brain and slow ‘puter can handle. Plus it took me another fifteen minutes to locate some suitable clipart. And I still think the one I picked blows *sigh*
TTFN. See ya in 3 days!
