I’m such a lemming

1/1 shoes at dawn

You know what NaBloPoMo means to me? It doesn’t mean I need to work harder to post every day. It means I get to blog more and entertain less. I can be long and rambly and just type whatever comes to the top of my mind because you all expect this sort of dribble. Dribble dribble dribble, kind of like the drool that hangs off Baby Bug’s chin. As long as I post every day, that’s all that matters.

November is a good month for this sort of thing. It’s the day after Halloween and everything seems so anti-climatic. There’s nothing like an endless supply of posts to read and pictures of shoes to look at! Yay! What a nice way to lull into winter slothfulness. It’s a good thing I don’t work in a cubicle anymore. I would never get any work done at all.

Kinda like now. If you don’t count my mom job (which I do all day long), I never get my housework or freelance work done. I’m always late and I’m always forgetting something. If you are one of the people who have emailed me in the last three months and you think I’m ignoring you. I’m not. Your email is still in my inbox. I stare at it every day. I’m not writing you back yet because I want to take time to write a quality email. I’ll get to it…one of these years.

I joke about this but actually it is quite stressful to me. I just wrote about four paragraphs about how I feel like a hamster in a wheel not getting anywhere but I deleted it because it’s nothing you haven’t heard from me already. And if I’m not going to hire a babysitter, I don’t deserve to complain about it.

I love being a mom. I just need to get over the fact that I can’t be a super mom AND a super graphic designer AND a super housekeeper. I tried drinking coffee all day long. It didn’t work. I’ve had the same cold for three weeks. I think coffee is not good for colds.

Next up: The trick or treat post! Wooo Hoooo!

    What does NaBloPoMo stand for? It makes me think of a town in Idaho or something…try it, you’ll see what I mean :o) “Where ya from? Nablopomo, Idaho.” See??? I know what you mean about hamster in the wheel…I want to be able to do everything WELL, and most times I just make it in the nick of time with a few hairs out of place. You’re the best, SAJ – I certainly think so :o)

    Michelle – National Blog Posting Month! :)

    I like it though. I mean, I usually post daily – USUALLY, but this is just that extra prick in the hind end.

    I’m cracking up at your category too, ya lemming!

    How fun that you are joining in the NaBloPoMo thing. I took it as a challenge for November. I needed something to get through the beginnings of winter. Last year I did the NaNoWriMo, but don’t have enough time this year for it. I just got the Baby into an evening schedule and this is the only time I have to catch up on everything else. I look forward to your extra posts :)

    I have been reading your blog for a while, and I think you ARE a Supermom! I am constantly amazed at what Baby Bug can do at her age – Say the whole alphabet, count, color pictures without occasionally chewing on the crayons.. My babe is a few months older than Baby Bug and although I know she is a smart girl and my pride and joy, you constantly amaze me with your posts about your life w/ Baby Bug. Don’t underestimate yourself. You are doing a great job, and you should be so proud!!

    I’ve had a cold for four weeks! It is horrible. Since this post is about 2 weeks old, I hope you’re feeling better by now!
