The Grumpy Blogger








Hi everyone. I have hit a wall with my blogging. Like all things, I got going with a real bang. It was consuming all of my free time (what free time some ask and I answer not really free time...so what if the kids didn't get fed lunch until 3pm). I woke up one day two weeks ago and looked around me. Total squalor...kids running around in dirty diapers filling their malnourished tummies with condiments from the fridge, dirty laundry carpeting the floor and and an empty pantry. I was getting 4-5 hours of sleep because I was planning my next blog topic. That is a slight exaggeration, but blogging was taking over my life. I had to take a break.

Now today, I woke up thinking in what great shape I am. Laundry done (mostly except for yesterday's stuff), ironing done and hung up, house VERY clean and picked up, bills done and account balanced. I am feeling so GOOD! I even told Andre that I could actually sit down and watch "The Price is Right" (a guilty pleasure, but I normally work through it and just catch parts of it). I was sooooo excited and then I looked over at the computer. Calling softly to me was the monitor with it's colorful screen saver and the key board with it's satisfyingly springy keys and my blog site that I had forgotten the address to. So, here I am thinking I would just knock out a quick blog from 9:38 till 10 am when my show starts. And now here it is 11:01 and I am still on the computer. I wasted all of nap time and only had "The Price is Right" on at my back while I pounded away on the computer, not enjoying anything and feeling distracted by everything. I didn't even get to check all the sites and comment and I have a pretty bad headache and several kids crying. So, I am the grumpy blogger. I hope to hit a stride and find a peaceful balance some day.

Blogging can definately consume your life if you let it. I am trying to discipline myself. Once a get an errand completed, then I can treat myself.

All the important people of the past kept a daily journal. How did they find time to do that?

Glad you finally updated - you need to practice quick ideas and short blogs. There is a hump to get over and then it is all down hill.

Wow, monkey looks a lot like princess in that picture. I usually don't think they look alike. Welcome back to blogging. We missed you.

Okay, nevermind. It is princess. Monkey is still just a monkey.

Most of the important people of the past didn't also read and comment on twenty other journals at the same time. :)
