Until I Can Clone Myself

It's just impossible to do everything I want to do. This blog has been suffering because of things I have to spend time and attention doing and there aren't enough hours in the day to do it all. It's Spring. People are out and about again, there are causes to address and things that need me. Which, believe it or not, is not my preferred way to live. I'd really love more days like yesterday! And I intend to steal them here and there, when ever I can. For the foreseeable future, I'll blog as I can, but the 3-a-day deal is just too much to keep up with for now.

Here now, some news. The horrible and the funny, just like real life.

Okay. Back to the juggling.

totally off topic...but...apparently I'm Slytherin. What do you think of that?

No...not Earl Scruggs. I loved Lester and Earl.

Lawless- you must be more ambitious than we know! lol! Remember, Harry Potter was almost put in Slytherin...
Yeah, Flatt and Scruggs were originals. Very sad.

Hey Laura,
And with the renewal that is Spring, we can rejoice and savour those special moments in the better weather.
Blog when you are comfortable to do so. I know that the inspiration of getting out there and feeling the fresh breeze of Spring, helps rejuvenate my sporadic writing.
You take it easy and keep smiling.

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

Doing three posts a day is quite an undertaking, and I admire your ability to do so. I started with three a week, went down to two, and lately it has been one a week. Things have come up in my life recently that have made me slow down a bit, and I can only do what I can handle.

Do what is best for you and only what you makes you happy. Don't put too many burdens on yourself.

Posting three times a week is enough of a challenge for me ... sometimes, too MUCH of a challenge. I can't even imagine being able to do it three times a DAY. Give yourself a break, kiddo.

Austan said...

Gary- The Spring is inspiring. I really just need more time in my days. I'm in a meeting and I look up and hours have passed, nothing has been decided or accomplished and I'm tired. So yes, I'll take it easier and do what needs be done. You keep smiling too, my friend.

Arleen- that's just what I'm experiencing. Winter was very laid back. But it's a political year and there are things to stay in the game over. So yeah, pick my burdens and find a balance that makes me happy. Thanks girl.

Austan said...

Susan- You're right, it's unnecessary pressure. I'll try to keep posting once a day at least, but for now, there are just other things that need my brain. I wish I could blog about them! lol!
