Blogger's Annonymous

"Hello. My name is Sherry. I'm a blog-aholic."

"Hello, Sherry"

Are there self-help groups for bloggers? If so, I think I need one. I dream about blogging now, I wake up in the middle of the night and come up with blogging ideas that keep me awake for hours. Too bad I forget about my great ideas come morning.

I think some of my friends are addicted as well. They've emailed me asking about my next post. (You know who you are!)

I'm sitting here typing this, when instead I should be:

1. Making out a list for my kids' school day.

2. Making sure all the zoo animals are fed.

3. Making sure my kiddos are fed.
(Wait a minute, I guess 3 should come before 2).

4. Laundry. It is sky high now. (Too much time blogging and looking at blogs.) It doesn't' look like this anymore- this was before blogging took over my life.

5. How about some clean toilets there? We have some friends coming over this afternoon. I"m sure they would appreciate clean bathrooms. When was the last time I did that?

6. How about some emails? Wait...who cares about that - we're into blogging now!

7. Groceries? Hey, if I don't buy groceries, I can't cook, and then I don't have to worry about 3.

8. Getting my son some pain medicine. He's begging right now. Poor kid. "I'll be done in a minute, little prince."

9. Grandma? Are you back there Grandma? When was the last time I checked on Grandma to see if she needed anything?

Speaking of Grandma, she really should go to the Dr. today. Mean Diamond took a swipe at her because Grandma had the nerve to answer the phone and disrupt her petting session. Her hand is a little red today. (That, and she has a deep cough).

OK. I'm surrounded. They are all staring at me. It's about the list, you know. All about the list.

OH. That reminds me. I almost forgot....I AM a homeschool mom. Guess we should do some school, huh?

Tomorrow, it's all about Muncie........

I'm right there with you, I really should be cleaning house, starting the laundry, etc, etc. But I had a few minutes, and thought I'd just take a peek........

Muncie? You're going to Muncie tomorrow?
hope you guys have a good school day! Get going. You can do it!

Unfortunately I think Sherry inherited my 'I don't like to cook' genes, Fortunately her Prince Charming doesn't seem to mind that chore, or we would all starve. Hopefully the little princess (Sophie) will take after her father (PC). She is already learning how to do the laundry, plus many other chores. (Her brothers are a little slower in learning these things. Smart boys)

Sherry, sherry, sherry... you will establish balance again, you will get faster at blogging and learn to use your time well. Use blogging as a reward for getting other work done. "If I finish my kids' to do lists, I can blog for ten minutes." Then set a timer and only give yourself ten minutes!

Aha! Now I finally know Carol's secret! Balance and blogging as a reward. And getting faster at blogging with practice.

Well, Sherry - it might happen, but I haven't reached that balanced point.... good luck with the list!
