Woe Is Me

Posted by ZenMom Saturday, December 5, 2009

OK, I'm really starting to have some unkind thoughts.  No, not about anyone in my family.  Not this time at least.

I'm getting a little peeved with this whole holiday thing.

Yeah, I know, just call me Mr. Scrooge for short.  But all this bonding with the kids, family togetherness and merry making is really cramping my style.

Do you realize in the last two weeks, I've written only three posts?  Not to mention the fact that I'm seriously missing out on a ton of great stuff on all my blogging buddies sites.

Its gotten so bad, I'm actually having withdrawals.  Sure I do my normal stuff -- bringing the kids to school, doing laundry, making dinner -- but all the while I'm obsessed with what I'll write next.  And when I'll be able to steal away for a few minutes of writing time.  And if I can't, that's when the shaking begins.  Then come the cold sweats.  OK, maybe not the cold sweats -- that's the whole menopause thing, I keep forgetting.

But anyway....

Bear with me, my friends.  I promise I'll be back in solid form as soon as these pesky holidays are behind us. In the meantime, if you see some middle-aged lady muttering Bah Humbug to herself in the grocery line, have no fear.  Its just me.

Chances are good I won't hurt anybody.  Just give me my space and a laptop and I'll be fine.

  1. This is me too!!! I'm going nuts with all this holiday pressure and trying to find a chance to get to the computer ahead of my daughter and hubby!

  3. I know how you feel! There is just SO much to do and so little time to do it.

  5. Our one computer is on the fritz and that's the one the kids use-so as soon as I sit down to write a post of comment, one of "them" comes over begging to get on the computer and they both bug me until they do. (Must fix that other computer!)
    Hang in there-the holidays will be over in a flash!

  7. I'm thinking about taking a break until after the holidays, too. There aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done.

  9. I know how you feel! There just isn't enough time to do it all with the holidays!

  11. This time of year does challenge us in the time department, doesn't it? So much for balance. It kinda goes out the window during the holidays.

  12. I'm in Christmas denial this year.

    I haven't even gotten any decorations out yet and am doing mostly online shopping...I suppose, I will panic in a few weeks, but for now this is working for me.

  13. Yes, the holidays DO kinda screw things up. By New Years I'm usually dying to take the tree down and get on with living a normal life (whatever that means - LOL).

  14. HAHAHAHA! I thought I was the only one that went into full-scale shaking on the floor, cold sweats withdrawal symptoms when I didn't get enough computer time. I mean seriously, does my family really need clean clothes? Wholesome food cooked at mealtimes? I think their just selfish. Why can't they understand that I might end up in a sanatorium if I don't get my daily injections of blog posts?

    Anyway, try not to worry about getting everything done over the holiday season. Your blog is so awesome, no one would forget about you even if you didn't post the whole month! Take care!
