There's life out there, and it's exhausting

  • I have discovered that if you take up the piano, start night classes at music school, and move your computer up to your bedroom all in the same week, you end up going online roughly once every two weeks.  Also, you will lose "followers," because people don't like it when you don't pay attention to them. Which I get, because I, too, am an attention whore. (Love me, please!)
  • Marie, to Jack's friend: Look at this cup! It's full of my pee!
  • It turns out that commercial house concerts are rather good fun, as long as you have a few drinks beforehand.
  • I may need to move my computer back downstairs. I have been folding laundry and practising the piano during nap time, which cannot really be healthy. I can play a pretty little waltz now, though. And everyone has clean clothes.
  • With my new night class/social schedule, I am at home only on Saturday nights. I'm not sure I can keep this pace going. I must now go and collapse into my bed.

  1. There must be some kind of compromise/balance?

  2. If I moved my computer upstairs (hypothetically, obviously) I would lose so much weight just from running up and down them those stairs 50 million times a day!

    Welcome back!

  4. I have recently realised (to my dismay) that I can work and have a relationship, work and have leisure, or have a relationship and leisure, but not all three at once. There simply isn't enough time in the day or energy in this particular body. And sadly, not working is not an option. Sigh.

  5. Just a tab busy arn't you...I would be collapsing too. As long as you are happy and we hear from you now and then, all will be forgiven.

  6. Blimey - no wonder you're tired...

    Perhaps time to start using your fancy phone to get online? Or am I getting confused now

  7. I have the computer upstairs in the new house, having had it in the dining room before, and I have to say it has been healthy - I am not tempted to check emails when cooking supper or helping the boys with their homework. Well done for learning the piano - I gave up aged 18 and now that the kid are learning, am regretting it.

  8. I stopped blogging and facebooking for a couple of days and achieved so much.... started me thinking about all the other stuff I could have done if I hadn't been in love with my MacBook!!!

  9. you can't do it all! Stop trying, I suggest you give up all forms of housework and child care and concentrate on filling up that Saturday night ;0)

  10. You've got enough love, right? I'd move my own laptop into the bedroom for the sake of improved writing productivity but it would kind of kill off my own chances of that sort of thing for ever.

  11. My site was hacked in August/Sept and so I didn't blog much at all (or when I did I moaned about the hacking) for about a month. I achieved loads! I simply can't juggle more than two things no matter how many times I have tried. Although I lost about 5 followers I think I greatly benefited from the break.

    And just so you know, I wouldn't stop following someone unless they hadn't blogged for six months or so, and maybe not even then. I'm patient (and realistic) and I like your blogging. That's why I'm still here!

  13. We'll still be here MWA, it's good to get on with other things you enjoy and to have a break from online when the rest of life calls.

  16. Wow you sure sound busy... maybe you should take a couple days break to catch up on much needed sleep? :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Maybe sleep on the piano? Or the ironing board? Turn the iron off first, though.

  18. oh girl, I can relate. Not to the piano playing perhaps, but to the falling off the grid and the exhaustion... and the neverending laundry.

  20. We stick around, us faithful followers. Although some of us are also only onthe computer about once a week, so it takes a while to get to your posts.

    Enjoy the break (as if looking after 3 children is ever a break, probably better to say enjoy time away from teh internet.) x

  21. I haven't fallen off the side of the earth either. Just super busy. Can't imagine how you keep it all together!

  22. It doesn't look like you're losing followers to me! I get three comments on good days, these days :o

    Cup full o pee, eh? A timeless classic.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh wait! This is an old post! I already commented on it! Baha! How the hell did I miss the pee bit before?

  24. Last time I was here, it wouldn't allow me to leave a comment. Seems to be a bit happier now. It makes me feel a little better to know that you're a bit hard pressed too. I'm not around on blog front much these days either. x

  25. All I can say is that you are awesome!

  26. HAHAHA! Funny that I read this almost 6 months later! I've been "off" on the blogging and the reading myself. As evidenced by this comment being almost 6 months late! Enjoy life! We can type later. When we're old.

  27. Der beste Weg d3 gold um Quests zu tun ist, Gruppe mit anderen Spielern in der Nähe. Tun Sie es nicht auf eigene Faust, weil man mit anderen Spielern für einen zu töten, die in Auseinandersetzungen oder verloren Erfahrung führen wird konkurrieren können. So viele Spieler holen Berufe sammeln zu befreien Erfahrung, die in mehr Erz und Kräuter Sammler im Spiel Ergebnis erhalten. Questing ist ein guter Weg, diablo 3 powerleveling um Erfahrungen zu sammeln. Kombinieren Quests mit Schleifen ist der beste Weg, um über Nivellierung nach oben gehen. Pick-up so viele Quests wie du kannst, dann starten Quests. Als Quests, wirst du feststellen, dass viele Quests in der gleichen Gegend sind, so können Sie sie zu einem Zeitpunkt abgeschlossen, während Schleifen entlang. Denken Sie daran, Ihre Ruhestein zu einem nahe gelegenen Gasthof zwischen Schleifen Bereichen eingestellt und wiederum in Quests, mmoga diablo 3 gold so dass Sie Zeit sparen können.
