A Bone To Pick

Ok, something happened to me today and I have to get this off my chest. Sometimes, I feel like I just can't win in my struggle to get a few things done each day besides answer e-mail, read blogs and occasionally post an entry to my own blog. Alright, I do a few other things besides those above - I do babysit my 3-year-old granddaughter and her brother - now almost 8 months old - and yes, I do cook most of the meals here too. A little time maybe to read, knit or sew beyond those things and the tv - well, that is pretty much it!

But this morning, while reading through the blogs I ALWAYS try to check on, someone there had the nerve, the unmitigated audacity and GALL to send me to look at someone else's website before answering a question on her site. Brother!

As if I don't have enough reading of blogs to do in the first place ya know? Here she is telling me to go read this site and tell her my thoughts about an article posted there after I did that.

Well, being the dutiful little blogger (I use the term "little" very, very lightly there), off I went to the directed website. And I read the article, which was indeed very interesting. And then, I read an other entry, and another and yet another and well, by now, you see the plight I am in, I am sure.

And to add insult to injury, this happened to me with not just one of my favorite bloggers but with two of them who sent me off to read and I darned near never returned then!

Now, I have extra work to do in a couple of ways. First, I have to go find my bookmarks for the two new sites they shipped me off to check and then, add them to my list of favorite blogs, but every day, this will now extend how much time I will have to expend before I am able to get around to posting some really wonderful words in a semi-literate fashion here, for you, my faithful readers to peruse!

So, if I run later and later each day in getting to writing at least one posting here, don't blame me because it is all their fault. I won't tell you which bloggers of which sites are the guilty parties either. You'll have to check each of them - same as I did - to find that out!

Aren't you glad you aren't waiting for me to cook supper for you now too - everyday!???

Love it. My live except the grankids exactly. I can spend so much time doing all the blogging things that I realize that I have yet to write mine.

I am definately addicted.

Nice. It's nice to be busy. I try to answer all my emails as well as check everyone's blogs. I even posted one this morning.

Ah Jeni girl, I feel your pain!! And I can certainly relate. I think I do more blog hopping and blog writing than I do the real thing. Oh well, one of these days I'll get to finish the ten plus books I have going!

heeeThe old blog and run syndrome. I know it well. Now, I get to do this AND work 8 to 5+ and keep the house going AND shovel the beautiful snow that we've been getting. So, sometimes, at night, my brain is fried, with nothing left to blog about, and only energy to visit blogs (which I am most thankful that I have that to do, otherwise how would I know about the REAL events of the day,...such as Skittles Place winning the Best Blog of the Day award!!!!).

Hope you have a wonderful's always nice to see you stop by....:-)

Ah, now what you need is an RSS reader - you can subscribe to the blog feeds & not have to worry about your ever expanding bookmarks. I now read nearly 50 blogs a day, and couldn't do it without my reader.

Google will tell you all, but I'm happy to advise if you want.

BTW, I'm now subscribing to you ;-)

Thanks Chris!
Considering how much I don't know how to do here, you can bet your bottom dollar, I'll be tapping you for some assistance!
