{What is all the calamity about?}

{Farm Life} ....... {Art} ...... {Learning} ...... {Motherhood} ......{The Story of Us}

What? Huh? What blog?

OK! So, I take full responsibility for the lack of posting here. I know, I know, it sucks to not have any witty poop stories to read, but ya know, life is hard. And I was busy doing other things....what can I say?

I actually forgot that I have a blog.

Now, some of you may be falling back in your computer chairs, feigning shock. Folks, life has been busy crazy here. And when life knocks on Katie's door, Katie has to answer. Albeit in her slippers and bathrobe, wielding her coffee mug defensively and grouchy as all get out that she has been drug away from the 'best post ever', dagnabit, Katie will answer that door!

While standing on the threshold of the front door of life, in my bathrobe I realized something. I spend far too much time worrying about my blog. "GASP!" you say, "how could this be?". I know this revelation may be incredibly shocking to your blogging system but I really do get sucked in. I find it exciting to read about the lives of people from all walks of life. I love to read about the little things my friends and family post as long as it has nothing to do with poop. I love to write about the little things not including poop.

I love to read and write blog posts. + I hate to do housework. = Holy crap (ha!), this place is a mess.

If that isn't an easy math equation, I don't know what is.

So....when faced with my husbands esteemed High School Chemistry teacher becoming a tutor for my oldest man child, and heaps of crap left over from our little foray to Idaho, I turned off the computer without a backward glance.

Hey, don't get me wrong, I did have little moments, early in the morning, when I would yearn for some blog time. I would make a plan for sneaking off to the library so that the children could "check out books" which is code for: blogging with out interruption or guilt of messy house, but I never did.

Mostly I just forgot that I had a blog. And readership.

I apologize.


Here, in the reflection of my freshly dusted computer screen, I vow to write more sans poop, ignore less in my bathrobe.


  1. I'm right there with you, sista- although my lack of blogging was due to technical difficulties beyond my control. Now that I'm back, I've almost forgot how to blog....
    I'm just glad to hear from you again!

  2. Oh, Paula! You poor thing. I have been there and it sucked. :)

    So glad you are back among the blogging.

  3. i forgot I had a blog (or rather ignored it) for the better part of december... My life didn't get any more out of control, however, so I decided to forego the silent treatment and ONLY blog for January, in an effort to seek a zen like balance.

    and seriously! Tis the season to blog about poo, I tell ya.

  4. Misty,

    Tipping my glass to more Zen like blogging...

  5. hey! understandable! and that math equation... ummmmm well... i may not be able to find the = yet lol. It's hiding under my desk mess first lol

  6. At least you have a good excuse for the lack of blogging. Mine is simply:

    writer's block + guilt for having writer's block = too ashamed to log into my blog.
    And realizing that altho life is busy and funny, I find it hard to translate into words worth writing....

    Glad to see you back. Poop or no.

  7. Amydeanne and Mrs. B.,

    I relate so well to both your comments.

  8. I have a good excuse, and I'm milking it for all it's worth. I hope nobody sees me here, I said I would take a break. hehehe (Wait, I never said I'd stop READING did I??) Love you friend, talk to you soon.

  9. My blog excuse is that ... I have a full-time job -- I'm adapting to a new way of life ... but I think about blogging alot and read (when my people write) =P But I loves you and am happy you are not ignoring it (with or without bathrobe) um, yeah, I think you know what I mean. (see I'm outta practice)... stopping now.

  10. JJ and Lex~

    So glad you gals made the time to stop by!

    I keep you two in my prayers..Luv ya both! :)

  11. Oooh.. I came real close to that over the holidays myself. It actually felt good and made me all the more ready to get back to blogging once the new year started.

    Glad you're back!
