I made a commitment to myself when I first started blogging to post every day, excluding weekends. I felt that consistent writing—if you can even call what I do "writing"—would be important for several reasons, the least of which I thought was to build a readership. But, of course, Kind Readers, you now have become my main reason for jumping out of bed at oh dark thirty, putting on the coffee, and getting to the computer before the rest of the household stirs. I imagine a vast army of blogoholics stretching from Maine to SoCal moving sleepily to their computers, impatient for their daily fix of The Mommy Machine. I know, I know, I'm severely lame when it comes to the visualization department, but it's kept me posting regularly, hasn't it? "HASN'T IT?!" she screamed in delirium at the empty screen.
My time for accomplishing anything is limited to before the twins wake up, during their nap, and after they've gone to bed at night. If you're thinking, Good heavens! That's an enormous amount of time, Kim, why haven't you finished your novel and repainted the house yet?, please remember that I also have a husband and two other children whose needs chip away at the chunk of opportunity available to me while the twins are sleeping. And let's not forget my normal To Do list that is a mile long, several home projects that I really must tackle, and a holiday season that is bearing down on me like a plane full of drunk hunters on a pack of Alaskan wolves (some post-election humor for all the PETA members out there). In other words, I'm just like every other mom on the planet!
Anyway, I'm going to slow my blogging down for awhile. Until Christmas, at least. Starting next week, I'm dropping Tuesdays and Thursdays. I need to free up some time, and I know my army of one or two faithful readers will understand. Catch ya back here on Mondays, Wednesdays, and TGIFridays.
Dinner last night: pizza
