Back to Bidness

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.
The second best time is today.

Oh my GAWRSH, I have badly neglected this blog. Here is what has been happening:

(1) Work (you know the story there)
(2) Kids (lovely but exhausting)
(3) Husband working part-time some evenings, which means at times I am single momming it at the worst time of day - see #4
(4) After working all day, coming home and doing dinner/homework/baths and bedtime/cleaning up the kitchen, etc. = nuffin left.

I am rusty with teh writing thang. Need to flex my muscles. What is funny is that when I was writing regularly, I would always have things to write about.When I don't write regularly, I draw a blank when I sit down to do so.

I will not lie to myself that I will get up 30 minutes earlier to write. I am not a morning person. However, I am also not a night owl. God, I love sleep. Isn't it great?

Anyhoo, I am just going to set reminders on my phone to write for 15 minutes every other day for my own sanity. And I am going to kick-start this blog and get it to what I want it to be.

YEARGH!! (Doing my best Howard Dean.)

Blah Blah over and out.

I think #4 has been commonly referred to as "The Second Shift" but I much prefer "One Long Ass Day".

Yea, and too easily that "One Long Ass Day" turns into a terrible rut if you aren't careful. I am doing my best to carve out time for the things that keep me sane. Like this! And not getting sucked in by TV or Internet surfing. Mmmm, blogrolls...what?
