The Blogging Thing…

It’s coming up on three years. Sometimes I think of things I have to put down and other times, I have nothing. I always said I’d not blog if it ever became an obligation. I don’t. Sometimes I put nothing up.

But I think what is bugging me most right now is how little time I have to read. There are some really really funny people out there and I’ve not had time to see how they’re doing, what their thoughts are, or what’s going on. There are some deep people that I truly enjoy seeing their perspective and I have been unable. That bugs me. But life is so crazy here… I feel like I have not even an hour to spare.

So even if I don’t post… there is a good chance I will be lurking. I want to catch up… I want to know what is going on. I just need things to chill.

I have some posts I slowly add to in the hopper… they will just be slow in coming.

For now... a funny story from camping. I thought it was funny.

My girlfriend was camping alone with her sons too. She had bought an airplane kite for them. She was in their tent trying to put it together; they were camping beside ours. Two Moms... seven boys.

I heard from her tent, "Bou! I need your help! I need an engineer!"

I crawled out of my tent and entered hers to see her amongst kite 'stuff'. She looked at me and said, "Can you put this together?" I looked at the mess and the box and said, "Sure."

As she parted she said, "You work on airplanes..."

I did a big, *BLINK!* I told another family later... Yeah, I work on airplanes. REAL airplanes. Not those made of nylon and plastic...

It just struck me funny. And the plane flew great. It was a highlight of the trip.

Engineers can do anything!

I always get gardening questions because I grew up on a farm. Oh if they only knew how much I hate a garden.

Glad your plane was aerodynamic and all.

Cute. 7 boys. Whoa! Did you get medals, you two Moms?

People always assume I want to figure the bill/tip at group lunches because I was a math major. Umm. I actually don't like doing that! But yeah, I can. People are funny.

Take some time off & catch up with people. Stroll around the blogosphere. Leave some comments. Give some hugs.

I've been missing visiting as well. Maybe I should do that -- put off blogging for a week as I just catch up on reading everywhere else...

Nothing to write? No biggie. It hasn't stopped Eric.

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

You're right - the hardest thing is finding time to read other blogs - not to mention just read. It's been so crazy lately I keep trying to get around to read blogs and leave a comment - then poof - the time is gone.

Crazy busy here too - I hate that I don't have the time to read around the way I want too...

And too funny about the plane! What a cool thing to bring!

"De plane! De Plane!"

Blogging/reading: yeh. I hear you. My "regular" reads slide out of reach when things get hectic. My own blogging--just to mollify the voices in my head. Since they're in a constant uproar...
