The reasons are many; some important, some not.
->I have this issue with responding to blog comments: I must do it before I publish a new post. A lot of the time, I have a few scheduled posts every week. But before I sit down to write a new one (like this one that I'm starting on Wednesday night), I feel the need to absolutely respond to comments from previous posts….especially really nice, thoughtful comments. If I have the time to write, I have the time to converse, right?
I love ice dancing.
After 2006 and 2010, I wanted to name my first-born Tanith.
Perhaps the fact that I'm staying up until 11pm watching ice dancing is not awesome for my motivation and mood.
--->And forget blog-reading. I've been skimming some things here and there, but I assure you, few comments were left. I would just kind of open up web pages and stare at them, without actually "seeing". I could've been doing the dishes with this wasted time…the giant pile of clean dishes and the stack of dirty pots really bugs Scott, as he sits 10 feet away slaving away with a book, a spreadsheet and what looks like an alien language (math or something). But by the time I cook dinner, eat, and entertain the idea of cleaning up, I don't feel like cleaning up. I spend all day cleaning up after kids that aren't mine; I don't feel like washing pots all evening. I mean, I love teaching and all, but when I have to wait until 4:30pm to breathe easy, dishes aren't my priority. Neither are the clothes on the closet floor. Life is short, right?
---->Speaking of life being too short…this happened in Missouri this week. The murderer works (worked) at a K-8 school. I do believe a public hanging would be too good for him.
-----> With our upcoming move to Colorado (which is posing its own challenges), I'm in slight denial about the fact that I have to resign from my job sooner, rather than later. This is very stressful to me. That, coupled with several parent meetings this week, has been trying on my nerves.
------>Onto something completely trivial: This is the best $25 I've ever spent.
