More about Nothing

So, I'm still giddy about this new tracking tool I'm using. It's truly revolutionary. It's amazing the technology we have available now.

It's also an albatross around my neck.

I had trouble getting sucked in before when I'd go online. I would log on to do school work, but "first" I would check my email and then venture over to facebook only for a minute, just to see what everyone is up to. Well, as you may have experienced, that minute turned into hours. Pretty soon my butt was the shape of the office chair and my hands fell asleep from being in the "home row" typing position for so long. One click led to another which led to another see where this is going...

Today I made a promise to myself that I would actually start living my life instead of just writing about it. Um, you see how well that's going so far? Doesn't appear I'm doing the laundry or cleaning right now, does it?

Actually, though, I did manage to get a few things done. I kicked an enormous pile of dirty clothes from the second floor to the basement. That's a start. It's a win-win because I plan on counting that as my exercise for the day. I also emptied the dishwasher. In the midst of all that, I've had to deal with a sick E. It's been a weird day.

Hey, speaking of weird...I watched Paranormal Activity last night. Well, I don't know if I can actually say I watched it since for almost the entire movie I held a pillow in front of my face. I relied on Joe's facial expressions and commentary to tell me what was going on. Why do I do that to myself??? I'm naturally riddled with anxiety on a regular basis anyway, so why do I add to it? For the same reason as everyone else...The intrigue. The thrill. I'm a glutten for punishment. I must enjoy not getting a wink of sleep because I'm waiting for the bedroom door to slam shut by itself.

It's so nice right now. It's quiet. The kids are in bed. I'm pretty sure 75% of them are sleeping. There's only the tick tick of my typing. Ahhhh. I should use this time to tackle the (no kidding) 15 loads of laundry in the basement or scoop up the dust bunnies in the living room or shampoo that grape juice stain out of the carpet in the office. Those are all great ideas.

Or....maybe I'll just take a nap.


  1. Seriously, you are sort of amazing and hilarious!

  2. I love this pic of you and your little princess. Miss you guys!
