Blog stuff

Life sometimes goes awry here and I take completely unintentional hiatuses from this blog. Day after day I think about post after post (or my hubby will say laughing "this is going to end up on your blog!") and they just don't get written.

Part of the reason is that life just happens and we go with it. Another part could be that we made 5 batches of homemade pasta on Friday - borrowing my super duper bestest friend's pasta roller thingy (technical term) thanks AM!!! The biggest part of me becoming a lurker on my bloglines and not commenting on all of my favorite blogs (yours!!!!)as much as I like is that I've been working. Thankfully from home, but for 5 hours a week or so I'm doing stuff on the computer that's not blogging and by the time I'm done with that I'm ready to get off the computer for awhile and do my other wife/motherly duties and or play! That's pretty much that until I get used to my new routine.

There's also a ton going on this week in bloggityville that I don't want to miss out on but despite making an insane amount of pasta on Friday I neglected to get a post about it in for Stephanie at Stop the Ride! She's doing a make it from scratch carnival now!!!! I'm really excited about it since the first week every month it's something you've never made before and the other weeks can be anything from scratch. On my list of stuff I've never made before:puff pastry, fruit leathers, re-cushion and upholster our dining room chairs, make roman shades. I'm hoping that this keeps me motivated to do one new thing each month. If your interested in participating the guidelines are here. The cut off for emailing her your posts are Sundays and she'll post the carnival on Tuesdays! Should be lots of fun!

Another event of the week is going on at Owlhaven. Mary's having "a day in my life" in pictures we can all share bits a pieces of our days. It can be any day between now and March 2nd. Then on the 2nd we'll all go link up w/ Mr.Linky. Anything that requires me taking insane amounts of pictures of my kiddo sounds like fun to me and you can check out the details here.

Then remember that this week starts the fun of 5 Minutes for Mom'sUltimate BlogParty which starts on March 2nd through the 9th. I'll be there especially since my birthday falls between those dates - great that they are having this big bash huh???!!!

TIME I need time! I wish I could do all the exciting things in bloggityville but I am comotose by the time I get to the computer. I will live vicariously through my blogging friends, if you don't mind!

I would love to participate in all of those things too. However, I have a hard enough time posting to my blog at least once a week.

I often think of things to blog, but lack the energy or time. Oh well, we do what we can, right? I know there's so much going on in the blogosphere, I can't keep up. :-)
