This blogging thing is harder than it looks…

When I started this whole endeavor I thought, “Great!  I’ll be able to talk about this and this and maybe I can do a weekly thing about blah, blah, blah…”  Now it’s kind of like, “Oh my god, has it really been a week since I was able to get something down?!”   

Time goes SO FAST.  Our schedules are getting crazy and there are so many things I try to squeeze into every day.  How do you manage it all?  I’m a Virgo, and an analyst, so I have a tendency to try to organize everything (yes, all of you who’ve known me for too long insert eye roll here).  I feel like if I plan allotments of time for everything thing I want to do I’ll at least manage to fit in a little bit of all of it.  That’s how I manage work, that’s how I manage data, but unfortunately I can’t seem to manage life that way.  It takes the joy and creativity out of everything.

One day soon I hope I can talk in detail about how great the last episode of Heroes was, or how much I enjoyed the round of pictures I was able to take in Cincinnati or about the myriad other things that pop into my head and then so quickly slip away.  We’ll see… 

(Sidebar:  My mind is like a sieve lately and it feels like the holes are getting bigger.  Random thoughts come and go so fast and I think, “I should really blog that” but then by the time I’m home it’s gone.  I’m trying to find a way to catch it all.  Then I thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool to track every random thought I have over the course of one day?”  That was followed by even more randomness and a final thought that maybe, just maybe, that may come off more crazy-guy-walking-down-the-street-talking-to-himself than I would like.)

(Sidebar 2:  See – sieve!  I had a second sidebar in my head as I was writing the first one.  Now…GONE!)

So, back to the numbers and measures and things that I can actually control and sort and manage.  Maybe I’ll fun stuff will come sooner next time around.

About Mama's a Mess

Who am I and what am I doing here? Well, at the end of the day I'm a mother and a wife, a lover of classic monster movies and comic books, of music, TV and movies. I'm a sucker for pop culture. I'm a fangirl. I'm an artist. As my husband always puts it, "Baby, you're a mess!" I have a penchant for creating and collecting. I feed my brain with a mix of anything from hot rods and pin-ups to handmade and natural. I like to dig in the dirt and grow things but sometimes picture myself doing it like Donna Reed. I will always, always choose to wear a dress first. I am head over heels in love with my husband and have a fantastically crazy life with him.
