Fallen off the Blog Wagon

Oh my poor neglected and abandoned blog! I am in complete awe of those who blog on a regular basis ... you must be very organized indeed to accomplish all that you do. Between my family caretaking, my jobby, my other jobby, and minimal housekeeping, I have had little time for cardmaking and scrapbooking for myself, and none at all for my blog.
Sometimes it seems everything that needs doing is like a dominoes game ... My neice had a baby boy, so I need to make a card. Several hours later, after processing through piles of paper, stamps, inks, die-cuts, stickers, ribbons, buttons, stickles, brads and the assorted tools to create with I have a lovely card -- and a big pile of stuff that needs to be put away. Well, I want to post a photo of this card, but first I need to charge the camera battery. While it's charging, I'll clear off a counter to prop the card on. There's a bunch of stuff that doesn't belong in this room ... while I'm in the laundry room, I'll put on a load of towels. Hmmm, the sheets need changing ... back upstairs, oh yeah, I was going to fill up a box to go to Goodwill ... geez now I have no black shoes to wear, I'll have to go out and buy a pair. While I'm out let me stop at the grocery store to pick up something for dinner, cuz you know I forgot to take meat out of the freezer. Back at home, I remember the towels are still in the washer. And the stuff is in piles on the counter. But the groceries need to be put away. Oh my ... is it dinner time already? Then of course, the kitchen needs to be cleaned up after dinner. And the husband would like to talk to me about his day. Someone is bound to need help with their homework. And the dog would like to go outside. The dominoes have all fallen down. All I wanted to do is make a card and post a photo on my blog. How did the day get away from me???

Yes, I need to get organized. But first I need to find the time! you know, years ago, I actually bought a 'book on tape' titled "How To Get Organized When You Don't Have The Time". I didn't have the time to read listen to it. And I haven't been able to find it since.

OK, so today - I blogged. Tomorrow, maybe I'll post that photo!

to all of you who missed me -- I'm still here :) and I've been lurking on YOUR blogs!
