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!
