time wasting

I'm in one of those moods...I've got so much that needs done, and yet all I can seem to do is goof off...

Despite that fact that our e-mail is once again not working, and the fact that the internet is still out as much as it's working, and the fact that the computer is still turning itself off from time to time, I've managed to spend a lot of time wasting time on this little technological wonder/annoyance.

I've posted a homeschool happenings post for our first "sort of" week of the new school year.

I got this week's Using the Vocabulary Game post up a little bit early. Anyone interested in playing, just pop on over. There's still plenty of time to get in on the action and try to win the $10 Amazon gift card.

I joined two new reading challenges, the Japanese Literature 2 Challenge and the What an Animal Challenge.

And are you ready for this? I made another blog. Yes, I am sooooo pathetic! I actually started it a couple of weeks ago, but I've been working on updating it. And Jean...you got your revenge!!! In a big way!!! See, it was your mention of your 50 goals to reach by age 50 that got me started. Now I've got a whole blog devoted to it. I still don't have 50 goals stated yet; I just keep adding as I think of them. And they are certainly nothing earth-shatterin...frankly, they're pretty damn boring. But I love a challenge, and I love to make lists. And as I sit pulling my hair out wondering why I ever started such a thing, you can sit and laugh your butt off, Jean!

I'm tagging you with the six quirks meme. :) If you don't have time or are not interested, that's fine too.

I won't sit and laugh my butt off, but you did make it harder on yourself by working 50 into each item on the list. And now you've almost guilted me into posting my 50, those done and not done. Yeah, we'll see.

You are certainly one ambitious woman! I don't think I even have fifty goals and since it's only a little less than three years away I don't think it could anything too big.

Oh, and about your computer, my computer was shutting down a lot all on it's own and it ended up that I needed the power source repaced.

One, more thing...I wish I could sing Amazing Grace for you. It's one of my hidden talents LOL!!

take care,
Dawn

I love your new blog so much Debi!! I've been wanting to do something like that myself...make a list of things to do by a certain age. I just don't know what the hell to put on the list. I hate committing myself to things because I feel like I never accomplish them. I guess that's number 1..get over your sense of impending doom!!

Stephanie said...

Yeah, yeah, yeah....more challenges! Killing me, you know?? All the temptation!! Of course, I'll HAVE to join the Japenese reading challenge.

Stephanie, you better! ;)

Debi, your post cracks me up. You've been wasting time, I've been fretting about time, I say let's just try to enjoy our summers!

My friend Lesley at lesley'sbooknook.blogspot.com posted a cartoon yesterday about a little mouse having technoloy problems so that he couldn't post on his blog. His friend rushes to look out of the window and say, "And the world goes on anyway!"

Sometimes I get enmeshed in my own agenda.

I think that is so cool you have more than one blog AND you keep them updated. In 2008, I came to learn I can keep only one. That's it.

Sorry to hear about all those internet problems :/

Love your new blog, Debi! I can't wait to read it more thoroughly when I have a bit more time. Like Chris, I've always wanted to do something like that, and your example certainly is inspiring.
