Is There Some Sort Of 12-Step Program For My Blog Addiction?

I don't always have much willpower. Baked goods and potato chips have no chance in my house.
 You're doomed.  DOOMED!!

I joined a gym, and then failed to go exercise. 

Not me.

I claim I'm going to quit caffiene, and end up making a slow ascent to the top of mount coffee.

  Why do you even *twitch* WANT to stop drinking coffee?

Yet somehow I managed to unplug for one whole week.  No blogging.  No twitter.  No Google Reader. 

I did check Facebook once or twice, but only because I've been waiting for news as to whether a very pregnant cousin had her baby.

Oh, and I composed a quick Amazon gift list, seeing as my Toddler's second birthday is rapidly approaching.

Oh, AND I checked the news for a couple days. 


So what did I learn from my time away?   That my often timid Preschooler loves to swim.  That Toddler knows words like "boat," "see you," and "HALP ME!!"  That taking an extended leave from work to be with the kids may not disqualify me from every job in the universe.  That Husband wants to exercise with me in hopes that we both lose weight set a good example for our kids on the importance of a healthy lifestyle.  That I don't really care whether minnows nibble my toenails.

See?  Time well spent. But now I'm compelled to be on the internet for the next 930 hours or so.

I think I need some sort of 12-step program.

But there is STUFF on the interwebs, dammit.

@Betty - yeah, IMPORTANT stuff!!

Good on you Angela. One day, when I am all grown up I will be just like you.

When you find that 12 step program let me know, OK? But if it includes giving up coffee or baked goods then I'm out!

Jeanette said...

That's extremely impressive. You have no idea how much you missed, though. So, so much. Huh. Not sure what exactly, but lots of stuff.

Angela@BeggingTheAnswer said...

@Stasha - I'm grown up?

@Lizbeth - I refuse to give up coffee (unless I'm pregnant.) Some things are just sacred.

@Jeanette - It is actually kind of confusing to pick up where I left off. Too much stuff going on!

As Betty said, there is STUFF. And WORDS and PICTURES and MOVING PICTURES WITH SOUND and... and... STUFF!

If being addicted to blogs is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

Angela@BeggingTheAnswer said...

@WrathofDawn - The moving pictures with sounds and words and stuff are the most important stuff of all!
