Where Did Monday Go?

Time is what we want most, but... what we use worst. ~Willaim Penn

I've always contended that God has a wicked sense of humor. I do my best to never say never, because sure as shooting, the moment I do, "never" arrives. I've seen proof of that lately... you see: I've always said if you want to write, you'll make time. You make time for what's important to you.

Lately, I've had no time to write. I hate saying that, because it sounds like a cop-out, but.... ugh. If I get up any earlier, I won't be going to bed. I have to to the work on the LASR website, because I'm the only one who can (though I'm working on fixing that one). I have to homeschool my DD because, yanno, I'd prefer that the police didn't show up at my door -- and I would like DD to know how to do fractions (the current bane of her existence). The dog needs walking, the food needs cooking...next thing I know, it's bedtime!

In any case, that's my way of saying I STILL didn't get those last thousand words done.

So, I'm shutting up now, and going to write. I have 30 minutes before I have to go wake up DH. That should be good for a few words.

From Tori:



What Your Taste in Chocolate Says About You



You are intense, powerful, and dramatic.
People respect the things you do...
And they're not sure if they could do them!

You are emotionally expressive and sensitive.
You're effected by everything around you.
Your friends appreciate your open heart, but they are afraid of hurting your feelings.

You love being around people. Friendships are important to you.
You feel lost when you're by yourself... so you tend to avoid being alone.





I avoid being alone? Please... I live for my alone time. I am the epitomy of anti-social...LOL.

Um...okay, so where's the chocolate? I heard there was going to be chocolate around here somewhere.

All right, who hid the chocolate? I want mine square, with an almond and it's gotta be milk chocolate, all right? Helloooo?

Blast. And I thought I was having chocolate for breakfast!

LOL... I'm with Sarita :-) I think we SHOULD have chocolate for breakfast. At our writer's retreat!

You are sweet, mellow, and easily satisfied.
You don't like anything too intense and dramatic.
Deep down, you're a kid at heart... and you're nostalgic for the past.

You are lively, goofy, and a total blast.
You're incredibly happy, and you always are lifting spirits.

You love to be in love. You crave romance, whether you're single or not.
You feel lost when you don't feel passion... you need someone to adore.

Hi Marianne, I hope you are able to sneak in more time later for writing. I am amazed at all you do with your websites and life. I love the LASR site and everytime I'm online I visit because there's so much information and fun things to do. I can see why this would take up a lot of time because of the daily changes. I hope you find someone to help you out on the site.

You feel lost when you're forced to be social. Being with other people can be lonely for you.

My chocolate was totally wrong. Like to be alone? Not me. I love people around me. Sophisticated? Wrong again. We're talking farmer at heart. Oh well, they are right about one thing. I do love chocolate. The darker the better.

Sometimes life just explodes on you. I'm in the same boat this month. I used to complain about having to write in the bleachers at the gym while the kids worked out....and now, I don't have enforced alone time, much less is getting done.

I will get control of my schedule, I will get control of my schedule, I will get control of my schedule....

"You are sophisticated, modern, and high class.
Your taste is refined, but you are not picky.
You are often the first to try something new.

You are energetic and quick to act.
You are open minded, and you easily adopt new social causes.
While your heart is in the right place, you often can't follow through with your dreams.

You love to be the center of attention. You enjoy entertaining your friends.
You feel lost when no one is interested in you... You're too interesting to be ignored."

Um, sooooo not me. *G*
I hope you find time to write today. And that you have a nice day!

Melissa said...

Hope today is better for you writing wise. I'm right with you on never saying never. Big mistake to do that!

groovyoldlady said...

"You're effected by everything around you" Ack! That should be Affected, not effected. Drives. me. nuts!

Wait, I'm already nuts. Crum.

How come "Chocolate" isn't one of the fillings the quiz offers for my truffle selection? I picked mocha as a close second.

You are sophisticated, modern, and high class. *SNORT*
Your taste is refined, but you are not picky. Not excessively picky...

You are often the first to try something new. You are energetic and quick to act. You are open minded, pretty much true.

and you easily adopt new social causes. Not so true...

While your heart is in the right place, you often can't follow through with your dreams. Can't? or Don't?

You love being by yourself and thinking. Developing your own theories and ideas is fun. Absolutely.

You feel lost when you're forced to be social. Being with other people can be lonely for you. Not really. But I sometimes get stressed ANTICIPATING being with others...
