Somehow, for the most part, day in and day out, missing a few days here and there, I have managed to keep this blog going. And for the most part I have managed not to post the same thing twice. I think it's my gift of babble. Or maybe it's the fact that I like to see my own posts hit on the internets.

Or maybe the blog is still alive because it helps me procrastinate (even more than normal) from doing things that really mater.

Such as:
- I cannot remember the last time I made a homemade meal for C.  I'm pretty sure it's been weeks. Maybe even a month.

- Laundry is piling up like crazy, because there are a million other things I'd rather do than do laundry. And I'd rather have C ask, day in and day out, if he has a clean white shirt instead of running a load of whites two times a week (I think he has enough to get him through more than a week).

- The a-p-t needs cleaned like crazy, especially since C's dad will be staying with us this weekend. (I don't clean just for the two of us).

- There are a hundred little things that need organized in our a-p-t.  Closets to clean out, Halloween decorations to put away (they haven't been displayed since October, they were taken down, just thrown gently placed - they are glass - in the office), and magazines to sort through (I cannot bring myself to throw any food magazines away, despite the fact that I don't regularly cook).

- I also need to get back into my Y routine.  I was well on track (and even ready for am workouts) before my life was so rudely interrupted by the stone.

But now that I think about it, I don't think the blog is stopping me from doing anything more than before.  I always put this stuff off even before the birth of the blog.  In college I would wait till the last possible minute to write a 10 page paper.  It's how I work best.  I can't get something done unless I know it needs done right this very instant.

Thus I'm going to go with by gift of babble being the reason why this sucker is still alive and kicking slowly moving along.  After all, I've managed to post several posts, like this one, that the world would probably be a better place without.  Or at the very least a cleaner place.
