41 reasons I haven't updated my blog

I figured since it has been 41 long days since I last updated, and the fact we are in a completely new year, I would give you 41 reasons for being such a slacker. I know you've all been sitting on the edge of your seats for an update anyway, right? Right?

  1. I'm a slacker
  2. I was working
  3. Christmas shopping took too long
  4. Christmas baking was intense
  5. I had to wrap gifts
  6. Then I was opening gifts
  7. I went shoe shopping
  8. My diet made me cranky and nobody wants a cranky blogger
  9. It was raining so I went outside to sing
  10. Blogger's block
  11. Writer's block. This is completely different than blogger's block. I'm just not sure how. But it is.
  12. I was watching the Wizard of Oz
  13. I got a new coloring book for Christmas and it NEEDED to be used. Yes, I said a coloring book. Yes, I'm 45.'s a Wizard of Oz coloring book that's 3 ft. x 2 ft. It took me a looooong time to color in it.
  14. I was celebrating New Years. In bed. Trying to sleep because I had to work at 5:30 the next morning. But how can you really get mad at people partying in the new year?
  15. I was making tutus for two very special little girls
  16. Some of my time was spent sleeping. Probably not enough.
  17. I was napping. This is not the same as sleeping. I'm not sure how. But it is.
  18. I was trying to sleep. This is not the same as actual sleeping or actual napping. I actually KNOW how this is different. It even has a different name....insomnia. It about killed me during the two weeks before Christmas.
  19. I bought an ice scraper. AN ICE SCRAPER. I live in California, people. This one event alone probably set me back 7 days as the shock and horror of having to scrape my windshields before I went to work (or as I was leaving work after night shift) gave me hives.
  20. I was using my ice scraper.
  21. I had hives.
  22. I packed up all the Christmas decorations.
  23. I packed up all the Christmas decorations. No, I am not cheating by listing this item twice. I did it twice. Once for my mom and once at my own house. So there.
  24. My message boards were looking for me. Okay, not really. But I didn't want to neglect my message boards.
  25. I was scrapbooking. Yes, I actually did a wee-bit of scrapbooking.
  26. In an effort to combat this gradual weight gain between the Mr. and I, I spent 2 hours meal planning.
  27. I spent 2 hours shopping for all those planned meals.
  28. Another 10 hours of cooking each meal.
  29. Another 10 minutes of eating each meal. I'm trying to lose weight. The portions are a little small.
  30. I was flossing my teeth. What? I just told you I had been eating.
  31. I applied for a new job.
  32. I threw up after I hit the "apply now" button.
  33. I was brushing my teeth. What? I just told you....never mind.
  34. I learned how to play the piano. Okay, this is just a lie. But I've always WANTED to play the piano. That counts.
  35. Approximately 5 minutes of my life was spent watching a birthday video that my brother made me. I will never get that 5 minutes back.
  36. My dogs needed to go for a walk. I have 4 of them.
  37. My dogs needed to go for a walk.
  38. My dogs needed to go for a walk.
  39. My dogs needed to go for a walk. What? I HAVE 4 OF THEM!
  40. We were buying new furniture.
  41. I really just wasn't doing anything all that interesting.
Wow. I really have a lot of reasons I haven't been here. Okay, I have excuses. One of my goals this year is to be a better blogger. 2010 was filled with some....ummmmm...."challenges" and sometimes blogging just fell to the bottom of the priorities. But strangely enough blogging/writing is calming and therapeutic for me so I need to get here more often. Besides....nobody likes a stale bog.

Wait. Did I just compare blogging and writing as practically the same thing? Craaaap.

    42.  I was thinking about blogging.

I promise not to be gone so long.


  1. : )

    Sounds like a full month or so of days. Hope they were all good and joy filled!

    I've not been blogging as much, either.

    But it is always a joy to come here to read what you share. Never a dull moment! I always enjoy reading what you right, even if the posts might be randomly disbursed.

    Happy New Year Cheri!

  2. Welcome back to the world of bogging. Missed your ramblings!!!!

  3. Welcome back! Did you figure out how to use the ice scraper?

  4. I love your excuses/reasons. I may have to fall back on some of these at some point. Welcome back!

  5. @Amy I did, actually. lol! There was a small amount of time that I actually had to put my gloves on. I know. You of all people don't want to hear it.

  6. ha ha Cheri had to buy an ice scrapper how did those mittens work? LOL
    I don't have an icescrapper. I have a remote start and when I get out of my car each night I turn the heat up full blast and put it on when I finally get in my car it is nice and toasty warm and I just turn on the wiperblades to remove the defrosted frost LOL It is great being a Canadian

  7. Glad you are back to blogging! And I have a topic for your next post - we need pictures of the tutus! You did take pics, right??

  8. We all need break most certainly! I'm glad you're back though. :) So.... I heard you have four dogs....

  9. What is this about applying for a new job? What's that about??? Do tell!
