You are coming to a sad realization. Cancel or allow?

I didn't clog for two weeks. Pablo asked "where do you go when you go away?" I didn't go anywhere, but I got a fuckload of stuff done:

  • I really focused on work, and finally got on top of things
  • exercise (swimming & walking)
  • buttsecks
  • established a healthy sleep pattern
  • uninstalled a hog of a computer security program (rhymes with "Florton") and replaced with a better program... thus preventing me from throwing my computer off the bacony in a fit of frustration
  • saw The Lives of Others. God, I miss Berlin.
  • kept up with household crap like cleaning, dishes, and laundry
  • applied for a new job
If I had done all of this stuff plus clogging... well, I couldn't. My sleep would have suffered. And I don't function when I'm sleep-deprived.

I have missed the clog camaraderie; sadly, in order to achieve some very pressing goals (new job, weight reduction), something must be extracted from the schedule.

I haven't quit the clog. Yet.

Wow, you really did get on top of things. Especially the list item where it sounds like you were really on top. Or not. Whatever - great list.

I know just what you need about needing to take a blogging break in order to attend to real life clutter.

I find that keeping up with blogs doesn't take much time as long as you just leave comments without reading the posts.

Phronk is indeed correct. I find that I can blog quickly if I accept that I don't have to spell check, make mostly sense and just let people know when I am going to be MIA for a day or two.

Glad you have quit and I missed you!

I cleaned the fridge. You win.

Salem said...

oh.. and I'm having a hard time believing that you didn't have the buttsecks at other times, because you posted more often.

Pablo said...

LOL@Salem. Buttsecks never gets in the way of my blogging. Buttsecks never gets in the way of me doing anything.

Timmy said...

I feel you. I am taking a break starting next week, to focus on more important things.

Good for you, Madame!!

It's ALIVE!

Crucible said...

btw, I think that's good. I still like to read your clog. And Florton rhymes with Horton Hears A Who. Get the stupid elephant comparison? I kill me.

MitZZee said...

all those things are NOT as important as clogging. (MLOYD YOU ROCK FOR PRIORITIZING) good luck with the job, hugs. xo

Butchieboy said...

If you people stop entertaining me, I will be angry.

Normlr said...

I bet you look sexy in clogs.

Now that didn't take so long did it? Buttsecks, cool.

tornwordo said...

Lol phronk!

Sounds like things are looking up!

Exercise, sex, pc-cleaning and Berlin... I only remember "Take My Breath Away." What else did they sing?

Nölff said...

I know how to clog. I can almost tap dance.

Jason said...

LOL @ Phronk.

car@ said...

So applying for new job? good luck i am sure it will go well! :-)

No matter how many things you do, the key is do whatever it makes you feel good and realised at the end of the day it has been a productive day. Allthough...we all have our ups and downs and lazyness and we have to sort of deal with that...

HUGS!!!!

It seems like a lot of people have been taking holidays from clogging which is good (you DID get a lot done!) but it's nice to be back too. When clogging who needs a real life?

Res Publica said...

So-called "real life" is for poor people. And what IS up with everyone bailing out of the blogging life? Myself included, I mean. Is this the sort of thing that you do for a while and then grow tired of? I hate change.
