Priorities Schmiorities

This post is dedicated to my bloggy friends who have succumbed to this so-called "Unplugging" fad. You are seriously bumming me out.

I know, I know. You've got things that need to be done like cooking, cleaning, raising of the kids, yada yada yada. But really, what could be more important than my knowing what is going on in your life at all times? If I don't have your blogs to read, what will I do with all my free time?

I could resort to doing household chores of my own, but why get my family's hopes up when you and I both know as soon as you plug back in, I'm there.

I could spend time gathering Wes' weekly expense reports for last year from the THREE different jobs he had so I can do our tax return. Nah.

I could start on the many, numerous decorating projects I have started but failed to finish. But it's really much more fun and less work to just look at inspiring pictures on your blogs of projects you have completed.

I think I'll just go take some pictures of some of the plants and trees that are starting to bloom around here, you know, so I'll have something to share with you all when you decide to plug back in.

In other news, I was going to pick up Caitlin from school today and was so absorbed in my thoughts about what I might blog today that I forgot to turn and then found myself halfway across town wondering where I was going. Oh, and when I got to school I figured out that Caitlin had Benchmark this afternoon and I wasn't supposed to pick her up until 5:00.

I do not have a problem.

I laughed out loud! Yes, and ditto for me. We should start our own support group.

Seriously? You forgot where you were going? I do that ALL the time! Have I told you that I'm glad you are my friend?!?!?!? :)

I'm with you, girl! If everyone unplugged then what am I supposed to do with my time? Just don't tell Wayne this is what I do as a SAHM/W! You'll never find me unplugging. Just not blog a day because I have nothing interesting to say!

you are so funny, lisa. i turned left today instead of right and was halfway home before i realized WHY i needed to turn right instead. turned around and drove back and knocked errand #3 out of the way. i'm blaming it on the time change. it has seriously affected my sleep.
