Aaaahhhh.....finally I have the computer all to myself! Hubby is finally asleep in front of the tv and Man-Child has finally succumbed to watching whatever crap is currently on....
I've only been waiting for two hours (at least!).
::sigh:: So what did I want to talk to you about??
Hmmm......can't quite remember (maybe I should start taking notes?).
Have seriously thought about getting Man-Child his own computer. But we've been there; done that. I had to institute a serious parental control on his internet access (ahhhh - the joys of a teenage boy!). This pretty much insured that he'd use the "family"computer (because he couldn't realistically do homework [seriously! I had it locked down that tight!] - but I could check out where he'd been.....); so it's not so realistic these days.... and at the time Hubby was clueless to what wonders the internet could unleash. But now? (Hello? Now, it's all "HEY! Guess what!!! You can do XYZ online!! or You can order XYZ online!!) ::sigh:: Ahhh - for the good ol' days when he was clueless....
Between Hubby and Man-Child.....seems like I never get the computer (major whine!).
I do seem to recall that I was going to write about comments.......
And my lack of them.
I'm bad. I know this. I have had many good intentions to resolve this.
I work for Big Brother (seriously). So I try to limit the amount of time that I'm on the internet at work. Because, yeah, my totally cool boss can only justify so much....which then leaves me to checking out you guys via my blackberry during the day - which is iffy (at best) on the whole comment thing. And then by the time I get home and wrangle some computer time.....you guys have come up with a whole batch of new posts!!!! Arrrrgggghhh!!! How's a girl to keep up??
So today, Big Brother be damned, I tried really hard to comment on every blog. I still fell short. ::sigh:: So for the interim (until I find some kind of solution); you have to know I am reading you and commenting (if only in my head!). Also, sometimes I worry...some of the more "popular" blogs I follow (read MILLIONS of followers!) do they even care what I have to say? Yes, the ones I "chat" with on a more regular basis do; but seriously? If they already have 50-1000 responses? Do they really care what I have to add to the conversation? Ummm, probably not (although I am so very wise and all-knowing.......I'm just sayin'. I should totally be in charge of the world!)
Several of you have asked questions in my comments; but since I have no clue whether or not you check back to see if I've answered (and I have no clue whether or not you receive any answers I send via email) I'm seriously thinking about a (weekly?) Respond Post. What do you think? Truly, I want to know what you think. Because sometimes I've responded via my comments and sometimes via an email. Without ever knowing whether or not you've received the response. This drives me crazy (if the truth be known-what??? You are shocked at my OCD-ness about this issue????? If you've read me for any length of time - you should know - so totally normal!) So what do you think? Would this be a plausible way to answer your questions and relieve my anxiety?
And just because it's on my mind.....
The shed is technically done. Except! We can't move all the crap out of the garage yet. Why, you ask? Because (according to Hubby) it's not drywalled yet. My response? WTF???? It's a SHED!!!
But apparently (according to Hubby), until the whole thing is drywalled, painted (outside and in!!!) there is no point in moving all the crap in the garage out (nevermind that I have to worry about frost, ice, snow, etc. on my car in the mornings....). Can you say - FRUSTRATED!!!!!! (yet another project that cannot be crossed off the list....)
