I am so far behind in my school work that it is frightening. If I start thinking about just how deep in this I am, I get butterflies in the stomach and diarrhea (TMI????). It is true. I don't exactly know how it happened and it is really not like me but I just let my course work slide this time and now it is down to the last several weeks of the quarter and I am going to have to work triple time to catch up- if that is even possible at this point.

So what am I doing?

Reading blogs. It's true. I should be reading an oh, so riveting book about power, privilege and differences but I am reading your blogs. I can't help it! Your lives are so interesting and your writing so talented that I just can't stop.

My husband threatened last night to schedule an intervention. He says besides having a new man in my life (our darling son) who steals all of my attention and affection, I have become an internet addict and have to check email about 1,000 times a day. I also try to turn every embarrassing family incident into a post for my blog. Sadly, it's true.

But, I don't get out much. I don't have a lot of adult conversation so reading my favorite blogs is a link to the outside world; an escape from the monotony and insanity of my days.

Oh, gotta go...my email just chimed. Then I probably should read. Or not.

I thank you heartily for your addiction. My blog thoroughly approves. Heheheh.

I am a total procrastinator too. (In addition to being a TOTAL cracker. LOL)

Ah, the balance between son, husband and Internet. I've been missing my Internet....

You've articulated so well Toni. Balancing and priorities, what's a Mom to do ...

I'm trying to wean myself more from the computer daily too!

Oh, I am in the same boat...If you figure out how to kick the computer addiction, could you please post it so I can read about it???;)

Hi my name is Michel and I am a Blod addict.

Acceptance is the first step. Right? Right?

It's hard to juggle and not let a ball fall a time or two, you just gotta pick it up and keep juggling.

And tell RxMan that we are laughing with, not at, it's good for the soul.

Now get to work woman! ( I say that while purposefully ignoring the dishes in the sink)

After you posted about your husbands lovely breasts...this was bound to happen :)

Step one is admitting you have a problem...

I don't know what step two is...cause I don't admit I have a problem yet :)

Oh how true - the best way to not get what is supposed to get done is to read blogs!!

changing your blog template is NOT a good sign. :)


Toni said...


Yeah, but my changes are gone this morning! I told you I was not technologically inclined! (:

Nothing wrong what doing what you enjoy, so long as it doesn't rule other aspects of your life. And yes, I say that as a parent!!
