Controlled Substance

It has come to my attention that since I have been so immersed in writing this Journal the following situations have occurred:
1) Laundry: We have no underwear.  Even the emergency supply of older underwear is now dirty and lying beside the over flowing hamper.
2) Errands: We are out of kitty litter. 
3) Dusting: It is so dusty in here that it has been suggested that if anyone were to accidentally drop a seed it would take root and grow.
4) Dishes: We have no clean dishes or flatware.  The dishwasher is full.
5) Health: Nothing's getting firmer if there's dust on the Bowflex!  
6) Communication: I haven't opened the US Post office mail in a month. I haven't talked to my mother in over 6 weeks.
7) Beauty: My roots are 3 inches long.
8) Maintenance: There is a Christmas wreath hanging on our front door. All my houseplants have died.
Needless to say, I need to get my priorities in order, stop procrastinating, and get to work. So I am going to have to stop blogging on a regular basis, and just write one whenever I get the chance.  I need to stop writing, and turn off the computer.  PUT THE MOUSE DOWN AND STEP AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER.  LOL.  I could write an entry about that.  If I had the time that is.  But I don't, so I'll have to save that idea for another day.  As soon as I finish this cup of coffee I am so out of here.  That laundry is as good as done.  I'm not even going to sign on later to see if I have any mail.  I'm already doing so well.  You won't be seeing MY screen name lit up.  Nope.  I should write a new 'Away Message' though.  Something like, "I'm sorry.  I'm not at my computer right now, I am busy cleaning, shopping, doing laundry, opening mail, calling my mother, exercising and putting away all the Christmas decorations."  It would be rude and uncaring not to put up a message.  Just because I'm busy doesn't mean that I can't be friendly.  Uh-oh.  I think Ray is walking over to pull the plug!  He's yelling, "Go towards the light, honey!  I mean the DUST!"  Isn't he just too cute?  I should write an entry on all the cute things he does!  But not today.  Sigh.  OH ALL RIGHT!  Don't forget me, guys!!  I'll be back!

Well, if you mean it, we'll miss you of course but I sure understand. After all, you have a new career now. You'll be on "Saturday Night Live" soon making fun of us all in a routine. We know your kind. : ) Then, you can get a cleaning lady. : )
Seriously, take care and we'll be here when you get back.

I'm sorry to say that I'll miss seeing as much of you, but I perfectly understand the sentiment. I have my own time constraints which prevent me from keeping the excellent journal that i have found in reading yours. In fact, I prefer to read other journal entries when I have the time rather than keeping my own updated.

octoberkimberly said...

(Gosh, even my comments get too wordy) Cont. from previous comment.
But I just want you to know that ever since I have discovered your journal from the "Editor's Weekly" pick list, I have been compelled to come back over and over again to see what you have written next. Your sense of humor is such a total inspiration to me, so please don't stay away too long.

Don't buy kitty litter. Let kitty out at night to poo in the neighbor's tulips.

Could be worse. You could be a crack-headed gambler. Or something like that. Least that's what I tell my husband when he grumbles. "You know where I am, you know what I'm doing, and hey, BONUS, it aint costing additional money! Now scram."

(Hope I didn't offend anyone.)
