A BLOGGER ONCE REMOVED .....

I AM WONDERING WHEN MY LOVE OF FASHION TURNED ON ME ?
IT'S ALL A BLUR, BUT THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING  AS THEY SAY .......
I HAD MY THANKSGIVING POSTS ALL LINED UP, EDITED, AND READY TO GO EARLY THIS WEEKEND, SO I WOULD HAVE ALL MY TIME FREED UP TO DO STUFF. INTERACT WITH MY HUBBY. GET SOME MUCH-NEEDED PHONE-TIME IN WITH MY FAMILY AND DE-JUNK THIS RATS NEST I HAVE CREATED.


SO , AS I STOOD UP, NOODLE LEGS AND ALL FROM THE COMPUTER, I SUDDENLY FELT A STRANGE SENSE OF FREEDOM. Ahhhhhh, ACTUALLY EXISTING IN THE REAL WORLD ! FOR 4 FULL DAYS ! WHILE MY COMPUTER RESTED AND GOT A BREAK FROM THE HUMMING SOUND IT HAS BEGUN !
I WENT OUT AND BOUGHT REAL GROCERIES TO SURPRISE MY SELFLESS , NOT-FOR-PROFIT PHONE ANSWERING DO-GOODING HUBBY ;)  I COULDN'T WAIT TO SPEND THE WEEKEND EMOTING. ACTUAL CONVERSATIONS. ACTUAL INTERACTING. ACTUAL CLEANING AND CREATING, NOT PREPPING FOR MY VIRTUAL SHOP.


I PUT AWAY THE GROCERIES AND BEGAN TO WANDER AROUND THE HOUSE. KIND OF IN A STUPOR.  I FELT LOST. WITHOUT PURPOSE. 
"COME ON, THERE ARE A HUNDRED THINGS YOU NEED TO GET DONE. CHILL ! " BUT I COULDN'T.
THERE SHE SAT, LIFELESS. THE LITTLE WORLD I LIVE IN HAD BEEN CLOSED FOR THE WEEKEND. STREETS ROLLED UP. NOBODY HOME. SPOOKY ......
I WONDERED WHAT MY BLOG BUDDIES WERE UP TO ?


I WANDERED UP AND DOWN THE HALLWAY FOR A HALF HOUR OR SO.
HEY, I SO NEED A MANICURE ! AS I WAS DOING MY NAILS, I THOUGHT OF A GREAT POST OR TWO TO WORK ON .......  ( OK, I'LL JUST MAKE SOME QUICK NOTES....)
52 SHOTS OF MY FINGERTIPS LATER, I REALIZED I HAD A PROBLEM.
I WAS A BLOG JUNKIE . ALL MY THOUGHT WERE BEING DIRECTED AT "GETTING, USING, AND FINDING WAYS AND MEANS TO GET MORE" (exerpt from Narcotics Anonymous) BLOG TIME !
THE EXACT MOMENT IT HAPPENED, I DO NOT KNOW. WAS IT WHEN I FINALLY FIGURED OUT HOW TO USE MY 'GOOD' CAMERA? WHEN I REACHED THE COVETED 'BIG 100'? OR DID IT START WITH THE VERY FIRST POST ???  I MAY NEVER REALLY KNOW.... AND IS THERE A PATCH ?
attire:
claw-like nails: mine, soon to be gone ;)
Sweatshirt: DIY, me, pinned with butterfly brooch
Skirt: old, velour  ~ Shoes: thrifted

Ha, if you find a patch, I think i will use one for about ten days around Christmas. It's funny because I often have little conversations with blogger friends in my head...just as you describe.

Ah ha ha ha haha! So true huh? Yeah. Me too.

Well remember your real life interactions is what fuels the blog life. So get out there and disconnect from blogger a bit, and come back full of great stories and a battery charged full of love and laughter. xo.

I think I'm addicted too. What a fun post. I've had a couple of days off and was pining to read about what all my lovely friends have been up to. xxx

Do you think there is a 12 Step Program for Bloggers!! My daughter made fun of me this weekend, because I kept planning and making notes! The majority of the ones I read??...all seem to operate with the same addiction. Come on over to my blog, over50feeling40, and officially meet me. After 6 months, I decided to put my name on it!! Big step for me and just leads further into the addiciton!

Ha! Funny. I tried to stay away from my computer all day on Sunday, and almost made it, but I signed on in the evening, and after midnight there I was posting on my blog...
