The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Blogger

At work, today is one of my two days off per week. Despite being off, I somehow managed to spend MORE hours at work than I would on a normal scheduled day. I did this after getting up at a ridiculously early hour (especially after working til 11 p.m. last night) to drive Daughter-Only and First Niece to catch a bus to NYC to see Second Niece. We were late for the bus in the town twelve minutes away, but only by a couple minutes, so rather than making the girls wait around for three hours for the next bus, I tried to chase the bus down at its next stop thirty minutes away. We arrived at the stop there just in time to see the bus pulling away so...in for a penny and all that crap...we chased it, er, followed it to the town forty-five minutes away and the girls were unceremoniously packed on to the bus and made it to NYC at their originally scheduled time.

What I am trying to say is that tonight, I am continuing my almost unbroken string of disappointing blog posts. Here's hoping I get to spend some quality time with my drafts folder soon--otherwise, I might end up in Blogger Time-Out.

  3. Ahhh, I so relate. I am thinking of changing my banner to a giant word: "FAIL." Life is so distracting. It's funny, though. From my end, I'm just happy to "hear your voice." :)

  5. Please don't put yourself in blogger time out. I would miss crying with laughter as I imagine you chasing buses down like some kind of high speed movie chase, lol!

    Like Tara I love hearing / seeing you around here too much so post, even if you think it is utter drivel, we will love it because it is our little slice of you ;-)

  6. Thanks guys! I'm trying to do better--and I really am wanting to zip around and say to everyone at their own places. Things have beeen wackadoodle crazy around these parts, but I'm hoping to get caught up soooooooooon. (I feel like I've been saying that for months--I mean it, every time, for what that's worth.)
