Random Explanations

I would try to explain why the Katie#4 post is still not done, except that anything I said would be an out-and-out lie ("Giant tarantulas ate our house!") or a rationalization ("Well, um, I'm not sleeping very well because of the hot flashes, and so when I sit down to the computer I really NEED to play more Peggle because that rests my brain and anyway... You get the idea.)

But the truth of the matter is that I simply haven't disciplined myself to sit down and keep writing. I am a slacker in this area. Which is no surprise; I have always been a slacker in some area or other, and as I gain discipline in one place, it pops up somewhere else. But I am RESOLVED to conquer it here. [I think I've said that at least once already :-( ]

In place, therefore, of the next installment of Katie (on which I will work after I post this) I am going to list all the extra things I've been doing that I could but won't use as excuses.

1) cooking several meals for the judges and officials when my kids' band hosted the state festival
2) the very next day, singing in the
choir at two masses, because our parish splits first communion to make room for all the relatives
3) attending the out-of-town wedding of a dear family friend
4) goofing off playing Peggle.

These are obviously not good enough excuses. So I'll be back.

Hmm...what is this Peggle? Perhaps I should not check because I don't need anything else to distract me.

I find all of those to be acceptable excuses. And if you'd like, I'll pretend to believe in giant house eating tarantulas.

Giant tarantulas ate our house.

You know how somebody walking towards you waves and smiles, and you wave back enthusiastically, only to find out that that greeting was meant for the person behind you? This is just in case you've been to multiple weddings over the past two weeks. Otherwise, this dear family friend is especially privileged and honored you and your family came to the wedding, and that's a perfectly legitimate reason for not blogging :-)
