2009 And I Still Suck

All of you readers (**knock knock - there are readers out there, right? I know Sasha still pops in and Anonymous is STILL commenting on the Crapabees post so here must be at least 2**) may have noticed that my usual lack of posts has become much longer lately. So, yeah, I suck.

I suck at commenting lately. I suck at posting lately. I just suck.

I've had stuff to say but it just hasn't seemed to want to travel to my fingers. I lay in bed at night and think back through the day and think, I should have posted about that. Then, when I wake up in the morning, its gone. Whatevs, I'm getting old.

I had this brilliant idea that I'd start off 2009 by posting something each day. Hell, this is more of way to document what a shitty parent I am and something that proves that happens at least once a day. But, here it is, already January 2nd and I've screwed that up.

I could have posted how I fell asleep Christmas Eve and almos forgot to have Santa visit. I could have posted how our front yard has become a deer graveyard. I could have posted about stealing a case of Coke from Wal-Mart. I haven't done any of those things. So, yeah, I suck.

I could have taken pictures of how the Demon Spawn decided to decorate herself with a pen and liquid eyeliner but I didn't. I could have posted pictures of how she has decided clothing is optional and is perpetually naked.

Instead, I've spent the last few weeks (months??) lounging in front of the TV. I've been comtemplating what makes a good blog as I've been reading my usuals and wondering what my voice is. What's my hook? What's my angle?

Apparently, its just to suck. And I'm succeeding!

I'm still here, just waiting for a reader update. :)

I was beginning to wonder if you had given up blogging for good. It's good to know that you're just a slacker like the rest of us. :)

Have a great New Year girly!

Hi, I'm out here, mostly lurking but I stop by often to see if you've added anything. Any of what you described would make for some interesting entertainment. But energy level has gone right down the toilet since giving birth to my youngest, now 4, at age 42.(He's killing me) So I totally know where you're coming from. Anyway....Happy New Year!

T - sorry for not mentioning you. Call it an old age oversite! :D

Kelly - thanks for coming out of lurkerville! Glad you keep coming back and we can commisserate about how having young ones at that lovely "advanced maternal age" blows the big one!
