it goes something like this


Me to SAM: "I'll be right there, honey!"

I just want to check my blog real quick.. See if I've gotten any new comments today. And then I'll be off. Real fast, like.

Ooh, look at this. Several comments to be moderated. Goodie! Now, who is that? Somebody new. I need to click over and check her blog real quick. Leave a comment of appreciation.

Oh and while I'm here, let me just check on a couple of my favorite blogs. The regulars. Just a couple (look over my shoulder, see SAM reading his newspaper). Ah good. He hasn't noticed. Maybe three or four, real quick ones.

But wait, this is a long post. Hmm, let's see. Looks interesting. Haha. She sure has a way with words.

Read a few (dozen) witty comments.
And who is that? What a clever profile name. I bet she's got a worthwhile blog. Let me check out that one before I close out the window....

SAM (20 minutes later, sounding extra irritated): "Coffee, what are you DOING? Are you coming or not?!?"

Me: "Oops. Sorrrrrrrr-eeeeeeeee. I'll be there in just a sec."

Just need to finish this one post...........



In the words of Linda Ellerbee, "and so it goes."

I think we can all relate. I don't know what to do with all this blogging guilt.

(Hey! There's a new field in mental health...)

Merelyme said...

lol...i can totally relate to this. there is always one more thing to check. i think maybe i blog in my sleep.

Madge said...

just one more, just one more...

phd in yogurtry said...

lisa -- I'm on it. I can advertise my newfound calling.

merelyme -- Hey there! long time no read. I've had bloggy dreams, yes I have.

madge -- yes, and I said that 15 blogs ago : (

JCK said...

Yes, it is EXACTLY like this.

That picture is amazing. I'm checking out that site.

Melissa said...

Nope. Never done that. Especially the profile thing. Wouldn't dream of it.

Cortney said...

Blogging and blog reading is SO addictive. I used to read like 3 blogs, now the list gets longer everyday and then once I check them in the morning, I have to keep checking periodically to see if someone said something that will change my life. :)

Nora Bee said...

I can certainly relate. Except it is usually my sleep that suffers.

Blue Mountains Mary said...

I'm with Nora - my sleep suffers.

And dinner may not get cooked in a very timely fashion.

onebrick said...

Definitely can relate and the guilt? It leads me to "give up blogging" every once in a while. I might make it a couple of months, but I always come back. It's a cycle I've been in for at least 6 years.

Mental P Mama said...

The story of my life;)

Real Live Lesbian said...

LMAO! That is so me!

Just one more...

Magpie said...

Yup.

Or, "no honey, I'm paying bills..."

Andrea Frazer - Pass the Zoloft said...

Stop talking about my life.

Helena said...

Five minutes turn into a couple of hours easily.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

The lies we tell ourselves . . . I'll just check really quickly.

katydidnot said...

sounds just like my kids. grrr.

Sunny said...

lol, that's what we all do.

Liked your blog at the first sight :)

Casey said...

Yep, that's all of us here at Rancho Barton. We call the internet "the rabbit hole," and we fall down it all the time.

Dr. Deb said...

I totally have the same conversations with my hubby!!!

phd in yogurtry said...

jck -- I was drawn to the picture, also.

melissa -- your "hand" pic goes well with your comment : )

cortney -- yes, always looking for those epiphanies here too!

nora -- oh yes, the sleep suffers too. sometimes the "I'll be right there, honey" is a call to the bedroom!

mary -- yep, I've done a few stove top burns and boil overs as a result of this hazardous habit.

onebrick -- yep, yep. I definately get a case of the guilts on a routine basis, esp where the kids are concerned.

mental p -- I knew I wasn't alone in this.

real live -- yes, I need to ban those thoughts from my computing vocabulary

magpie -- unfortunately I don't do bills online, so that's one excuse I can't hide behind

andrea -- um, ok. but will it help? any of us?

helena -- I am always surprised at how fast time goes by. Sometimes when I am waiting for a pot to boil or the timer to go off for the oven, I decide to blog, "that'll make time go by in a zip"

jenn -- I prefer to call them teeny delusions

katy -- good point. and ouch!

sunny -- thanks! and thanks for stopping by.

casey -- rabbit hole, that's excellent way to describe it

dr. deb -- I'll tell my Dh its a psychologist thang. I'm sure that'll make the pill go down easier. Yeah, right.

AnnD said...

Yeah, I am pretty obsessed with my blog and checking up on those that I love. I always intend to just pop on and pop off and then the same thing happens to me!

Hip Mom's Guide said...

OH! So true! Well said.

Jennifer H said...

Exactly like that. That picture is fantastic! Love it.

Trannyhead said...

I've gotten AWFUL about visiting people who have checked out my blog. You see - I'm the worst kind of blogger. The one who wants comments but who doesn't want to work to get them!
