I've said it, and it's true. I realized yesterday - or maybe it was today, or the day before yesterday (does it really matter?) - that I am addicted to this blogging thing. It's sort of liberating, in a way... I can go on and on, without worrying about the words stumbling out of my mouth (something that they tend to do in real life --- I think I have a bit of a speech impediment!) or if anyone really cares. In the world of blogging, I don't need to wonder if anyone is reading or not.
Sure, sure... it's GREAT to get an email notifying me of a new comment on one of my posts, or to see that I have a new follower. But, I can still imagine that there are people reading my daily musings - or that no one is (sometimes that is just as soothing). I'm certain there is a way to figure out how many 'hits' my site has had over time - but (a) I don't know how to do this, and (b) I don't really want to know. Ignorance really is bliss, as they say!
So, this one is gonna be short and sweet, but a few confessions for you (whether you're out there or not) ...
1. Blogging is taking over my life - I'm starting to daydream about it, put off schoolwork, housework, you name it, in favor of it. Is this bad (especially since my ramblings really aren't that good?)
2. Deep down, I'm a very lazy person. Given a chance, I will stay in bed until 10 a.m.; I'll walk right by a pile of toys on the floor (they're just going to get dragged out again anyway) and - as I type this - there is a laundry basket of clothes half-folded on the couch across from me. The only reason they are there, clean, to begin with is because the Warm One loves me and does way more than his share of things... I heart him for this.
3. I eat way too much crap. I know I need to eat better, and I want to (mostly), but it's just so much easier to just eat crap - you know? Ugh. Like, I have had Fazoli's drive-thru for the past two days because it was fast and (kind of) on the way home. And, again, see #3. Lazy ass.
I hope these things don't make me a bad person. I hope that these things are mostly related to life as we know it, right now, since it seems like there's a lot going on... I have memories from the not-too-distant past of actually cleaning my house, of making meals and even sitting down to eat them with my family. Fingers crossed that these things will come to pass again, some day...
(P.S. Confession #4 - I struggled a teensy bit with putting this posting up, only because I kind of liked having Gerard Butler headlining my blog... mmmm...)
