How Many Times....?

When you were a kid, did your mom or dad ever start a conversation (aka: lecture) with "How many times have I told you...." It's one of those things you SWEAR you will never say to your kids, but then, well...
I was thinking about that today, but in a different way. I was thinking about it because I realized "how many times" I've promised that I would write on a regular basis. That "this time" I was sure that I was on a roll. Clearly, I lied. Okay, that's harsh. Let's just say you all were me. See, the problem is that Life gets in the way. Try as I may to make time to write every day, the truth is, I have other things that take priority sometimes. Little things like "kids" and a husband, and bills I have to pay, my job (as an elf), and making sure we have food in the house. You know, those little pesky every day details we just can't ignore. This is not to say that my brain and my imagination are stagnant. I have plenty to write about. It's just that sitting down at the computer and taking the time to post tends to mess up my groove, so to speak. Now this is where I usually say "..but this time I mean it! I'm really going to write all the time now!!" You'd all be thinking to yourselves "we've heard that one before." I'm not going to say that this time. I will say this. When I'm not otherwise living my life, working (which of course involves writing anyway) taking care of my family, taking care of myself (i.e.: swimming) spending time with people I love, taking care of my little dog or my two turtles, or coping with my general insanity, I will write something here...and hopefully you won't have all tired of waiting for me, and will read it. :)
