Time mismanagement

I have so many things I want to write about. Not so much because YOU want to know as that I need to work through them, and it's very cathartic for me to "write through" things. But I don't have time. Or at least I can't seem to find the time to sit down and write for a couple hours... and that's what I need just to scratch the surface. I am not one who can write for a few minutes and then come back to it later to continue. Not on this kind of stuff.

I've debated doing some video blogging, like talking to the camera, because it would be quicker than typing it all out, but I can't get past looking at myself on video. That's a whole different issue. I've debated pulling an all-nighter to get some stuff fleshed out, but I can't imagine missing sleep right now. Again, another issue.

So for now, it will have to wait. I don't want to wait too long, though, because Kinlee's getting older, and I have so much I want to get documented about her birth and first few weeks here, the adjustments and the ponderings. I keep saying I need a blogging/digi-scrap weekend...just me, all alone, no housework allowed, just free-flowing thoughts, my laptop, all 1 million of my pictures from the last 30 months, and time to edit my writing thoroughly. (I'm big into editing.) Don't worry, I'm not holding my breath. I'm not *totally* delusional.

As a reminder to myself....topics I need to hit...
~Kinlee's birth story.
~Why I'm thankful Braska came first.
~Asking for help
~The trouble with helping others
~Current parenting strategies
~Braska updates: feeding, development, personality, IEP prep.
~Kinlee updates: milestone documentation

Those are the ones ok for public consumption...there are many more lately that aren't. Don't know what I'll do with them, but for now, it all waits.


  1. Are we leading parallel lives?????????

  2. Maybe you could just record your voice...you could download free software for that. And that would get it off your chest without having to see yourself on video. (Which I would also passionately avoid.)
    Then, you can come back to it when you have time and it could be like dictating to yourself.
    Or, you could just burn the thing and the thinking it through process will make the writing go faster.

    Or you could eat Snickers. Eat Snickers until you can't even remember your own name.

  3. writing is theraputic for me too...I have discovered. I hope you find some time...I am going on a scrapbook weekend in 2 weeks...there might be space open...you could bring your computer!!:)

  4. I personally like the Snickers idea.....or cake...I could "build you a cake or something". Cake does make the world go 'round...


Thanks for your comments! I love the feedback!
