Not in a creepy stalker way, but in that I get an alert whenever you post (I felt the need to explain my title, just in case some newby stopped by).
I’ve been meaning to email all of you to explain and apologize. But since I’m kinda on the lazy side of things, a post seems easier. I just hope with all my comments on your blog, you one day come here and see this. That all being said, let’s get down to it.
I’m sorry. I have not been the best follower. Why? Same reason I don’t blog or do anything else I tell myself every morning I am going to do. I’m tired! I’ve been crazy busy at work (where I use to get quite a bit of blog reading done-only during lunch or break time of course) and while the kids sports schedules have slowed down, I still find myself with other things that require me to focus and pay attention (showering, grocery shopping, cleaning, driving…very hard to read while doing these things).
I am doing my very best to keep up with all of you. I thought about unfollowing, but I just can’t. All of you are just too good. Your insights, inspiring words, humor…I need all of you in my life. You guys are like my family (like an uncle the one that’s really funny and smart most of the time. Everyone once in awhile he’ll say something odd or that you just don’t get. But you don’t kick him out of the family for that. You let it slide and wait till the next time). I have been doing my best to stay away from Freshly Pressed and the Topics tag. Those places are dangerous to a girl like me. There is always someone new, funny, intriguing grabbing my attention and begging me to follow them. I keep telling myself I will not go there until I have caught up with all the blogs I currently follow. I think my biggest problem is I don’t like to skim over your writing. I like to read it, kick my shoes off and get all up in your words, your descriptions and your pictures. Love all of it. Then once I’m done “getting all up in your business” most time I feel the need to comment. I actually stop myself sometimes. I don’t want to seem stalkerish or crazy.
If you are seeing new comments from me or likes on posts you wrote 3 -4 days ago, please know I plan to get current. I want to get up to date. Right now I’m reading about how all of you spent your St. Patty’s Day. Great stuff! But by the time I get done, I’ll be reading about everyone’s Easter weekend. I should be reading now, that was my plan. But I’m having lunch with my girlfriends in a few and I’m ridiculously hungry…so focusing on your words is not a very easy thing for me to do. Finishing this post is getting increasingly complicated too.
I’m sorry and I promise to get better. I am officially braindead.
