One More Blog, Dear!


I think I'm going to take a speed-reading class. Do they still offer them somewhere? Every time I log on, I first read posts from my favorite blog acquaintences, and then, without realizing, it is the wee hours of the morn. In one sense, this is good, because the later I can take Tootsie out to do her business, the later she is going to let me sleep in. In the other sense, I find myself dragging my sorry ass to bed before I can even get five words written!

I feel so fortunate that I have happened on so many intriguing blogs! The thoughts and honest (I think they are mostly honest) words that are being written out there are forcing me to regrow the brain cells that I thought were lost through years of breastfeeding.

Sometimes I really have to work hard to figure out what someone is saying, whether or not it makes sense, and how I want to respond, if at all! I can either respond like the biker in "Little Miss Sunshine" when Olive finished her delightful dance to "Super Freak", as he threw his arms in the air and yelled "Yeeaahhh!!!!", or I can simply say, "No, that's not how it is!"

I am loving that I get to read about women (and men) who share many of the same feelings and opinions that I do. I also love it when they don't, because it affords me an opportunity to express myself verbally before I cut off my nose with words that are not thought through very well. It's sort of like trying to make a left turn and when an oncoming car travelling -5 mph, puts its blinker on two feet before turning. I summon every ounce of air in my lungs, and simply scream, "Thanks for the advance notice, a$$h*le!"

Too many fun blogs...not enough time!

Blogging is a terrible addiction... and it can spread until you are HAVING to read over 140 a day... and that's just your 'favourites'! I am so in trouble! Not enough hours in the day! *sob*

Liz...I know I know.
I organised my Google Reader in to catagories...and I feel I have it all slightly more under control. Just slighlty.

When I am waiting on a download I scoot over there and read...

Just so you know, you are in the Friends list.

If you do find a class I'm coming with you because I have the same problem!
It's hard enough for me to read all of the blogs I have in my sidebar but then I start wondering what others I'm missing out there!
I need more time!

Oh and since you gave me the ok, I'm reposting my answer to your Dear Tracy question from yesterday. Please don't be offended!

I agree! There just aren't enough hours in the day.
