Confessions Of A Blahg Slacker

75:365 ^See? Wretchedness, I tell you!
You so can not be mad at this sad face, now can you??

Er, yeah, so when I said that I would try to blog every week, what I actually meant to say was every 4 months or so.
I did warn you that I was being lured to the dark side that is Flickr™LOVES YOU and frankly I've been doing a kind of
photo blogging over there.

I will shamelessly drag out the old "A picture is worth a thousand words" saw with very little compunction. Don't think I won't.

The fact is I've been as proverbially busy as the proverbial one legged man in a proverbial butt kicking contest at work. <(begin)whine>I'm doing the job of at least four people and the work load has left me...tired...uncreative...a teeny tiny bit apathetic. <(end)/whine> Luckily I have an awesome boss who is aware and I know some time after the first of the year the situation will be rectified. It is what it is, but obviously other things have suffered for it. On top of that, one of my many faults (oh stop, you've missed my little confessions) is if I put something off and feel guilty about it, then I avoid it and then I feel worse and avoid it even more and then it looms and I feel wretched and try not to think about it and become paralyzed in my wretchedness. Lovely, no?

I've been thinking about how I would like to get back into this and back to all y'all and then I picked up
this and felt the teensiest of tiniest stirrings of...could it be?...creativity. Maybe if I start slow, don't pressure myself too much but also, I don't know, be a disciplined grown-up for once, I can do this again.

I'll wrap it up for now. No need to belabor the point. Plus I need to comment back to all of you who have been so sweet as to check back every now and then. And I have so much catching up to do.

X's, O's and !!'s

Are you still there, my darlings?
