5 Minutes In a Blogger's Head

I recently read an online article that I can't stop thinking about. It was entitled 5 Minutes In a Mom's Head and IMHO it was brilliant. The "Mom", Bumni Laditan, shared what goes through her mind when she is trying to fall asleep. Since I can easily identify, I thought I'd share my own version of Ms. Laditan's anxious musings...

5 Minutes In a Blogger's Head

I really need to get caught up on my blog today. I haven't posted in a week! And there are still three comments from my last post that I haven't responded to. I have to visit Pam's blog..and Linda's...and OMG, I haven't commented on Sherry's in ages. This desk is a mess. I'm going to clean it up after I write those comments. Do other bloggers start to resent you if you never respond to their posts? I'll get to that right after I think of a topic for today's post. Maybe I could write about how I organized the desk. I need more highlighters. But I haven't had time to organize the desk yet. I still have to reframe that pile of pictures to hang over it. Do I have any 5" x 7" black frames? Maybe there are some in the tote under the bed. I could run to Home Goods. I really need to clean out that mess under the bed. I'll do that this afternoon. After I decide on a topic for today's post.
I think I'll write  an update on the "150 Project". After all, I did go to the gym today. But...if I write an update on the "150 Project", I'll have to talk about about the 5 pounds I gained eating Key Lime Pie in Charlotte last week. Maybe I'll update it after I lose the 5 pounds. My sister looks great...she's been so good on Jenny Craig...how come I can't do better on my diet  lifestyle change? Maybe it's because I quit smoking...she doesn't smoke...that's probably it. Will I be the fattest sister now? I don't think I ate too much this week. How many WW points are in four Margaritas? God, I hate to exercise. Those inchworms this morning almost killed me. Does that mean I'll always be fat? Will I always feel fat? I can't write that...no one would understand. I need to think of another topic for today's post.
How about decorating? I get lots of comments when I write about DIY projects. Heck, they loved it when Joanne and I reupholstered Mom's old chair.  But I haven't done anything blog-worthy this week. I haven't upholstered a chair, repurposed a dog house into a sofa table, made a guest cottage out of doilies, painted a mural on the side of the garage, sewed wrap-around curtains for my deck. How come the stuff I do is never as good as the stuff I read about on other blogs? I did change out the placemats on the dining room table. No...they won't care about that. I know...I'll take a ride to the Habitat Store...they might have some old wood or something to inspire a quick project I can blog about. I'll have to stop for groceries on the way back...there's nothing for supper. Then I'll do the project...and take pictures of it. OMG...by the time I do all that, I won't have time to blog about it. I still need to think of something to write about...and quick!
Maybe I'll write about organizing...I love to organize. Don't my friends always kid me about my spices being in alphabetical order? Hmm...what did I organize this week? Maybe I'll write about how I cleaned out DH's drawer in the bathroom vanity. Would people be interested in how to hold a butter knife to scrape up hardened toothpaste? How to organize sea glass by color?  How to store lobster crackers so they don't catch on the junk drawer when you try to open it again? Probably not. I really need to re-organize the linen closet in the bathroom. What a mess. Maybe I can do that later today...after I finish working on my blog.
It's gorgeous outside...why am I sitting in here at the computer? I should go out and enjoy the good weather while we have it. Summer is short. I never did move those overgrown perennials on the far side of the house. They look terrible. Will our old hose even reach over there? Would one of those new "scrunchy" hoses work better? I'll hose off the plastic chairs on the deck at the same time...they look gross. I think I'll bring the laptop down to the deck and blog out there while I run the hose on the new shrubs...blog...move hose...blog...move hose...blog...move hose. That could work! But...
I've still got nothing to blog about!
