Well, I failed at the NaBloPoMo goal I set myself. Actually I didn't fail. I bailed. Same result but from a different direction.
The reasons why I failed and bailed at blog posting daily this month:
1 Two sick grandkids this weekend. When the twins are sick, all else revolves around them (or any other sick grandkid).
2 I have a deadline with the website. If I don't get the calendar finished this week, my sister doesn't have anything to teach next month. So I had to switch from writing to painting. Sounds like it shouldn't be a stretch, but when I am dreaming up ideas to paint, my mind goes where no man (or woman) has gone before.
3 This should probably be number one. I am a procrastinator. (I procrastinate at everything, so much so that Wretch was almost born in the car because I took my time getting to the hospital.) Midnight slipped up on me the first day I missed posting on the blog and I was doomed. I guess I should have been distraught, but after all, it was MY goal, and I chose to give it up for more important goals.
I guess that is life too. We often have to give up some goals in order to attain others. That sounds lofty, but can actually be as simple as giving up your place in the check out at Target because you have to go pee.
It is all about priorities. And any priority that is connected to my family in any way, always comes first with me. Which is my life as it should be. So failing to blog every day?
Blah, blah, blah....the blog will wait a bit til I take care of other things...
