Why the silence?

DO you ever get tired of seeing your own non-updated blog posts? Enough already. I've slept some, and now it's time to post something new!
I've been very busy, and I totally brought it on myself! Last night, I went to dinner with some friends for Kiwi's birthday. (Have I mentioned that I have the BEST friends in the world? Really!) anyway, at dinner they were all talking about Facebook, so of course, being a follower, I had to go sign up...like I needed something else in my life. So now my sleep deprivation is of my own doing since I was up until 12:30 checking who "might be my friend". Crazy, and a total waste of time, since I know who my friends are, but still I was sucked in...and I have reconnected with some people, but how deep that will go I do not know. the reality is our lives have nothing in common anymore, I don't live in the same state as my High School, and so beyond the novelty of saying hello across the miles and years, I'm not sure why I am doing it. And yes, I'd probably jump off a bridge if all my friends were doing it :-).
The second thing is actually equally crazy, but very exciting. About 2 months ago, I was contacted by a homeschooling magazine with the opportunity to be part of a product review focus group. They had 300 applicants, and narrowed it to 100 to be in the group. And....I made the cut! I'm totally excited, but now I have a whole new group of 100 really cool ladies to get to know, and between those e-mails and facebook, I'm feeling very popular and overwhelmed today :-). Plus, I have about...oh...99 new blogs to look at (which is always totally fun but somehow I think it will be another "bed at 0'dark hundred" night :-).
SO much more to blog, but so little time to do it if I want my kids to go to bed. It's church night, so they are off to bed late, and Mimi has trouble winding down, so I need to encourage her to GO TO BED...still working on that "let your gentle spirit be known to all men" thing...I particularly stumble around 10 PM Thursdays when my husband is at the leadership meeting and my daughter is talking my ear off. Not so gentle then...
But I still know I am truly One Blessed Mamma.
Pin It!

Congrats on the focus group thing! You'll have to tell us more about it.

Cool... My Mom and sis are on facebook and I absolutely, positively refuse to blog there. First, I have a blog, and 2nd why do they make it so dorky and speak about you in the 3rd person?? Like "Leisa is sad today", or some other nonsense?? Okay enough of a facebook rant! Do yo want to be my friend?

I'm with you about joining Facebook, spending hours writing on other people's walls, leaving messages. It certainly seems fun in the moment and then you remember there's probably a reason I don't/didn't keep in touch with these people in the first place?! But yes, I am excited to contact these people and find out what everyone's been doing; maybe I'm just nosy!

You're not the only on who was getting tired of seeing your un-updated blog!

Leisa said...

oooh so get to posting, and this post doesn't count for a weeks worth of blogging, missy!

my facebook and myspace are badly neglected and will probably remain so. But I do like blogging...

Okay, now I'm confused. I am reading your blog posts backwards, right? I read earlier tonight(more recent post) about how you are a non-conformist and a rebel. So now I am reading about how you are a follower and you'd jump off a bridge if everybody else did. Need I say more? Please explain. : )
