WFMW: Blogging w/o guilt

Because...we all have enough to feel guilty about, right? Blogging is my guilty pleasure. I'm on the computer when my husband leaves for work in the a.m. and still on it when he comes home. He probably thinks this is what I do all day...NOT.



See, I don't do it all in one shot. I blog a little, do some chores, blog a little, do something else and on until I don't feel like it any more. Somehow, the house gets fairly clean (as opposed to company clean) and we manage to eat pretty good food every night. Besides, I have a part-time job so that eradicates some guilt.



But how do I make sure I stop to get other things done? Easy--I count. Today, for instance, I printed out the list of wonderful Works for Me Wednesday tips you will find over at Rocks in My Dryer http://rocksinmydryer.typepad.com/shannon/2008/03/works-for-me-so.html

Whilst having my morning coffee, I marked off the hints I want to read. At that point, it was only up to 95, but I think there are nearly 200 tips there now--time to print out the second half of the list. Obviously, I'm not intersted in all of them. It's been about 16 years since I needed baby advice, for example.

So I decided that today I would check out 10 posts, then go do something, then do 10 more, etc. So now I am off to bring groceries in from the car. Then I'm going to straighten up the pillows that were knocked off the couch. Then maybe I'll do something else...or maybe I'll come back and read 10 more posts. Either way, it gets me up and moving and the housework gets done!

Great idea - it is amazing how consumed you can become if you're not paying attention.

Hey, I love your blog. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on mine.

What you described was me...lol.. At times, I'm the same way too. It's great being able to stay home and make your own hours...=)

well, I've know people to put cinnamon in their chili so I guess it does make some sense, doesn't it.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

I spend way too much time here. But I justify it by saying, I don't watch t.v..

Thanks for the comment, Clare. The photo program is at www.picnik.com and is free. Check it out. I have been so behind in blogging that I am becoming overwhelmed with where to start....I am like you, I look throughout the day whenever the kids give me a chance that is:)

To be so easy the cakes are easy and make others happy. Hope your holidays are great.

Ooo, how great that I was part of your list instead of some random click. As for the reading blogs, I know my husband thinks that's all I do some days as well, because we all know there are fairies who do the dishes, laundry, and meal prep, right?

I do the same thing when I'm home, tend to get more done if I "putter" a bit - do some housework, some blogging, some reading, back to housework, etc. It works for me as I apparently have a short attention span. LOL
