It'll Never Happen Again Until Next Time

People are getting on to me to start blogging again. I feel a little remorseful about neglecting my blog these last couple of days. After reading several irate comments from kind people who thought I needed some rebuking encouragement, I feel like a kid who ditched school and has been dragged in front of the Principal for THE INTERROGATION. "What on earth have you been doing that's more important than BLOGGING young lady????"

So, here's the thing: I'm not sick or lazy or brain dead. Well not sick anyway...
But, I lost my computer unexpectedly and if you know anything about Sudden Death Syndrome, you know there's no getting over it quickly. Ask any cyber junkie about going cold turkey and they can tell you about the nightmares, chills, nausea, sweating and suicidal thoughts. Although I have since recovered, it's still a little painful to talk about...

I'm not getting you down at all, am I?

So anyway, in the interim between throwing my laptop on the train tracks
(it was AWESOME!) and getting a new laptop... my lifestyle changed. Something new was introduced to my daily schedule. Something big. Something tumultuous. Something heavy and foreboding... something called "SEMINARY."

Some of you will not be familiar with this so I will explain. It's when we take our kids to church for scripture study for an hour EARLY IN THE MORNING. BEFORE SCHOOL! AT 5.45!

I understand that it is good for the children and A has been loving it like she's never loved the scriptures before and I like that, I really do. I think it sets her up well for the day and helps her to focus on her schoolwork. Her grades are reflecting this improvement.

But here's the thing...
It means I have to actually. Get. Out. Of. Bed. At 5am. To drive her there.
I don't do this every week because I am in a carpool with four other parents but here's the other thing...

Now that I get up early.... I go to bed early. And there goes the 11pm - 3am blog time. GONE.

Even though I theoretically, should still have time
somewhere in the day for blogging, I haven't. You know how it is. If you don't do it at 11pm, you're never gonna do it!

Oh, I have to go. My pillow husband is calling me.

I'll be right back.
