I am having a blog problem, y'all.
It's a problem of time.
Like right now, this very second, I am just back from town where I did several things including buying a duplex (long story) and finding a bathing suit. I did it! I found my second bathing suit! And I was so used to hitting my head with that brick that it hardly hurt at all.
Found this one at TJ Maxx and it is black and it is fine except that it's missing the optional strap thingee and since it won't be optional for me, I have to go out and find one but May says if I go to Victoria's Secret and tell them that I lost the strap to my strapless bra, they'll give me one.
Anyway, la-di-dah and so forth. It is now four o'clock in the afternoon, I have been running around since seven thirty this morning, Mr. Moon has left to go out of town, I need to muck out the chicken coops, plant some okra (no, I still haven't done that), finish tidying up a few more cabinets in the kitchen, do something about that mess on top of the refrigerator, and today is the day I jar up the fourteen day sweet pickles. I have the jars in the water bath right now for the sterilization process. I have been taking pictures as I've gone along with this whole pickle-making exercise and will be posting a how-to thing on it later. Maybe even tonight! Who knows?
But here's the deal- there are eighteen unread blog posts in my google reader, I have not responded to one of the comments I've been left today and you KNOW I always respond to every one of them and if I forget one, please forgive me, it was out of error, not intent.
I am behind! Very much behind!
But if I don't do the things I need to do around here because I'm always blogging and reading blogs, I'll be out of a job because what would I have to blog about if I didn't have a life? Well, that's assuming I do have a life, which I sort of do, but if I don't get out there and take care of things I won't. You know what I mean.
So that's my dilemma- how do you take care of your blog-life while maintaining your "real life" or RL as they say in the blog biz? Like- Aunt Becky, how do you do this? AND YOU HAVE THREE KIDS, ONE OF WHOM IS AN INFANT! You must read about five thousand blogs a day and you always leave such sweet comments. And you blog every day! Despite the name of your blog, I sincerely doubt you are drinking much of anything except for Red Bulls in order to get all of this done. Do you eat? Do you sleep?
So okay. I have to go now. I forgot to mention the trash needs taking to the trash place which means I have to put on a bra. Yes, I wear a bra to go to the DUMP because the last time I went and decided that no, that old man who hangs out as the dump caretaker doesn't care whether or not I wear a bra, I ran into a guy I know and he hugged me! and I wasn't wearing a bra and OMG!!!! (It was Brad, Kids. Remember Brad? "We cut your grass, we trim your bush?" He is now the daddy of a one-year old girl whom he is raising on his own with the help of his grandma, the preacher, and his twin brother! Brad has a twin brother!)
Well. Life in Lloyd.
But seriously- any answers on how to maintain a blog and a polite and mannerly response and comment life while still doing things like mucking chicken pens and planting okra?
Helpful hints appreciated.
Love you truly....Ms. Moon
P.S. Please don't stop leaving comments in order to free up my time. I live and die by the comments. Really.
