Quiet. Or lack of it.
Not NOISE quiet. But activity quiet.
I’m not talking about the insane colic that went on tonight with Mr. Viking and his 2 hour cry-fest. I’m still twitching from that one, but shall recover. Must have been the round of ‘I-can’t-believe-my-own-mother-would-do-this-to-me’ shots he got at the doctor the day before.
I’m talking about posts on this here blog. Or the lack of ’em.
Sorry folks. Blog designing, purging and purdifying takes a lot of concentration. A few tears, too. I sit here waiting on Darcy to get online, watching for her name to appear on my GoogleTalk (rather like a stalker) – and then I accost her with all sorts of requests and questions so as to use up every ounce of her free time. It’s busy work, you-betcha.
There’s also a hefty amount of whining. And then there are the panic attacks. Three years with a blog template tends to marry you to it in an unhealthy way. And as much as I talk about simplification and decluttering, there’s a little of my mom’s pack rat in me somewhere. Because Darcy has been having to tell me to go take a Prosac or a deep breath in between her stern commands that I MUST NOT cave and put all this j-u-n-k back on my sidebars.
She’s nice like that. She needs to go in to drug and alcohol counseling.
Anyway, you peoples are going to probably drop a jaw when you come in here later on and see what she’s done. I feel like I’m having my mind erased in the process… but I know I’ll be glad when the site is pretty and fresh… and the sidebars are STARK NEKED. BLANK. EMPTY. Holy moly, they look funny!
I figured you wanted to make sure I was alive in here since it got so quiet. You were probably thinking… 1. she spilled sweet tea in her laptop and was in a major depression because she couldn’t afford to replace it… or … 2. she overloaded on iPhone applications and had some sort of seizure – and is spending the rest of her days in a straight jacket, drooling… or … 3. she secretly decided to quit blogging here because a twittering Target executive offered her $5,000 a month to blog for them on another site…
… or maybe you just thought I was busy with the baby?
Well, whatever you were thinking, I thought I would set the record straight. YES, Target. I will blog for you. But you have to ask first.
And about the redesign while I’m waiting on that offer… it will happen some time around… June. Because I don’t want to put any pressure on Darcy. Or she might make me give up another five categories.
Don’t worry. You’ll love the new look. It’s rather BRIGHT – and ORANGE, but you’ll love the new look. You better!
