A Moment Alone

I went to bed early last night after blogging and being up pretty much the entire night before helping out with the kids in the absence of some of the brothers/dads. My eyes popped open at 5:45 this morning after 7.75 hours of sleep, and I've spent the last hour blissfully snuggled in my 3rd floor bedroom above the lake, commenting on all my pals' blogs that I've neglected over the past weeks. The overnight rain has waned, but the trees are still dripping like crazy, so it sounds almost like it's still raining. The skies are heavy and more rain is predicted, so naturally that means this is the first day we have the ski boat reserved. Hopefully everyone will be game and realize that rain means the lake will be less crowded, right? We are not big into water sports-I used to be but Eric is not and I have put aside a lot of those interests for the sake of finding new family interests and traditions. It's not like I'm missing out for crying out loud. I'm so busy I can hardly think sometimes, so I do not regret a little re-prioritizing. It is fun to revisit every once in a while, though and Eric is good natured about stepping up to support fun things for us that he is not necessarily into. I really appreciate that about him. Hopefully I'll be able to remember how to ski and get up a few times. If not, then I'll have a blast on the tubes.

By the way, I'm a little slow on this, but it is especially funny for me who was reluctant to even do this blogging thing. I think my score was upped significantly by the fact that I now have 4 blogs that I am a contributor on.

81%How Addicted to Blogging Are You?

  1. Mmm, what a cozy morning. I must admit I didn't expect to see any posts on your blog during your week away, so I'm happy for the tidbits!

    That is funny about your blogging score of 81%, I was quite surprised you beat out Cami. I bet your right that it's the multiple blogs. :)

  2. I also have 4 blogs, hmmm . . . I think it's because I use bloglines. Do you visit each blog each day? But hey, this is no competition! I'm glad I'm not the most addicted!

  3. I do use bloglines and atom, but my knitting blog community consists of probably 50 people, so the time I spend commenting and reading other blogs has also mushroomed. I need to get that under control.

  4. It's too bad commenting on so many blogs is so time-consuming. I've gotten behind this past week, and it's a bit daunting to try and catch up. And I "only" comment on about 12 blogs! I do so appreciate your comments on my blog, though. :)
