"Best Laid Plans" Or The Diary Of A Crazed Cat Blogger
I experienced one of those weeks that I hate this week. Monday was Labor Day. Rosh Hashanah (The Jewish New Year) was yesterday, I am Jewish. I had two holidays this week. I hate it.
I thought being out of sync on a holiday week only pertained to those working "traditional" jobs such as I had for over 26 years. You know those Monday holiday weeks where the entire week you are confused as to what day it really is? Add to the mix a newly retired ex-teacher husband who isn't returning to school at the first sign of autumn in the air, but is instead there to chat it up with me in the morning of what would be my normal "blog time" (I do sooo love you honey!), add two days of mass producing food for the Jewish Holiday, stir this recipe and you get blogger combustion!
It really hit yesterday. A friend of mine on Twitter kindly pointed out to me...."Hey Caren, are you aware that you sent your Wednesday follow greetings on Thursday?" (This actually wasn't a direct quote but you get the idea). She had nothing but good intentions pointing out my faux paux. Duh. Fake blonde moment? Too much wine for the holiday? When I messaged her with my complete embarrassment we decided to blame it on the wine. Nice try but I barely drink and frankly had none of the traditional wine for this holiday.
Today is Friday (I think). I woke up this morning later than I would have liked to (7am instead of 5 or 6am) on a blogging day. (I have a self-imposed deadline of my blog HAVING to be posted by 10am on my blog days of Mon, Wed, Fri) See? I am already late...it is now 10:07am.
I had a product review scheduled for today's blog that frankly I wasn't comfortable writing about yet because I didn't have time to sufficiently use the product.
As luck would have it I discovered a piece submitted to me for a guest blog waiting in my inbox. Perfect!! I will move the product review to next week. (Turns out it will be 2 weeks because the person I am doing the review for is getting married this weekend, she won't be back til September 20th and I have a funny habit of wanting the people that I blog about to be able to read a blog about them when it is posted!) Pretty silly notion huh?
Ahhhh. "Best laid plans". I can't use the guest blog today because I need photos of the cat featured in the blog. The author of the guest blog is on a plane soaring back to Michigan as we speak. Hence no photos til late today (at the earliest). Helpful hint: if you are a guest blogger please include photos for the blogger to include when you submit your piece, it is a HUGE help! (smile).
End result? I have no blog scheduled for today. Just this ranting/raving disoriented blogger psychobabble.
I hate holiday weeks. Especially weeks with two holidays.
My husband just called. Train of thought interrupted AGAIN. (I love you honey!!) "Brakes are sounding like a garbage disposal. I need to take my car in"
I'm going back to bed. Happy Friday! Or is it Thursday?
