I think I've lost my mind

Yeah. It's official. I have. Lost my mind that is.

Or was it all a dream? Or too much wine? Or too much diet coke with a fresh lemon wedge that has finally affected my memory?

Because I think I parked my tootie tot in my big ole leather chair all day a couple of hours Saturday to set up and launch a new blog. A little something something called "Blog Around the World."




What. was. I. thinking? I wasn't. I didn't. Well I did. But, now I'm thinking I wish I was getting paid for this hobby of mine. Gotta work on that.


But I've still lost my mind.


However, you know what? It's fun. I love writing. I love making new friends all over the world. And I love connecting people together. And I love that my husband is my biggest fan, supporter, cheerleader and financier of it all. If he wasn't behind me in all this, I'd still be blogging to myself.


Doesn't matter. Mind. Gone. Kaput. Bye Bye


Because not only did I launch the site, ignore my family, ignore this blog, and ignore your blogs, I agreed to guest blog for Sarah over at Like A Warm Cup of Coffee."


Yup, I've lost my mind.


But I am honored that she thinks enough of me to write for her while she is basically bed ridden in the early stages of her second pregnancy. So friends, since I spent all my creativity on her post, I am sending you over to Like A Warm Cup of Coffee to give Sarah some comment lovin' in the way I know all us blogging Mama's do when one of us is feeling a little blue or under the weather.

Meanwhile, I've gotta go find my mind.

Now where could it be.....

Got any ideas?

It's okay, honey - we are all right there with ya! I'm like you, sometimes I wish I was paid for all the blogging I do.

But I can't wait to see the new site!

Tracy P. said...

Well if you left it on the new blog, it is in great shape, because everything is all organized over there. And CUTE! Did I mention CUTE?

I've got my coffee, so I'll meet you at Sarah's place.

You have not lost your mind, you are just as normal or abnormal as the rest of us. Life would be boring if we weren't overwhelmed at times :D

If we were all paid for the fun stuff we do...wouldn't we all be filthy rich!!

We'll be with you while you wait for your mind to return...we will be loyal.

Melissa Lester said...

Love the new site! I think you should put ads on it so you can make a little money to balance out the time it will take to be the ultimate blog party hostess.

So as the blog administrator, will you be going by Miss America or Miss Universe?

Your normal -- I'm the same way -- I try to blog in the morning or at night -- We have school during the day so I think my two oldest would kill me if I blogged during the day -- I love the blogging around the world -- its going to be fun and what a great idea -- I do Munching Mama Monday so come and check it out.

Jaci said...

I can believe you were stuck at your computer all day! Just copying and pasting all those links must have been mind numbing. Have you worn out your right mouse key yet?

I will have to come over and check out your guest spot! I got your e-mail, and Thank You! I would love to! Give me a few days to think up something...

lynn said...

Sorry, can't help. I lost mine a long time ago! The Blog around the world looks cool though. Good luck with it!

Lula! said...

This is why I love you and why you are my Fairy Blogmother. You are that good, I tell you.

I'm curtsying, but you just can't see it here. But I am.

Rene said...

Well...I think your mind and mine are somewhere tropical having a good ole time while us suckers are still here trying to keep it all together!! ;-) hehehe

Kat said...

Hmmm...I am wondering if you lost your mind. But I am glad you did. The new site looks wonderful - and I am glad you got Darcy in on it because she is sooo wonderful!

Gina said...

Ask your kids. If I can't find something it is usually because they have moved it to some totally random location.

Ronnica said...

Loving the concept of BATW though. Thanks for setting it up/losing your brain power for it!

Z's Mom said...

Shoot...I lost my mind a long time ago....once I find it though..I'll definitely help you look for yours...

Kathi said...

Two blogs! I don't know....it could be a great thing for you though. Can't wait to see what happens...so I can say, "I knew her way back when."

I've had no cable or internet for the past 5 days! Can you imagine???

Karen said...

Can't help you on the mind thing. However, if you do come across yours, would you mind checking to see if mine is there as well?

Thanks ever so much!

Now I'm off to grab a cup of coffee and toddle off to visit Sarah. That stuck in bed thing, while pregnant, can be a pain in the proverbial.

Love you Blogging Around The World!!

Karen said...

I mean ... 'Love your Blogging Arond The World' !!!

I think some of my computer keys may have gone off to joing our minds ... wherever they may be...

Britt said...

Well, when I lose my mind I generally find it in the bottom of the sink under all the dirty dishes....

I've decided I really don't need it that bad. I'll let it hibernate for a while.

p.s: loving Blogging Around The World! Thanks for doing it .. I appreciate you losing your mind so I can delay getting mine back for a little while longer. :o)

Lynda said...

What's a mind?? lol - I joined your Blog Around the World - great idea - love it!

HeathahLee said...

You haven't lost your mind, you just misplaced it for a few days...for all our sakes I hope you take a while to find it! : )

You are a great bloggy friend to sub for Sarah.

Emily said...

I don't think blogging would be nearly as fun if I got paid to do it! It's the thrill of my day, serious. ;)

Sidney said...

You are awesomely amazing!

Jennifer P. said...

Guest blogging is like having to care for someone else's infant! You did a great job though! Hey--I just saw your name pop up on my email thingie. Guess we must be crossing paths :)

Take a deep breath--whether or not we ever get paid for our blogging devotion, it's still an awesome feeling to know we can create and manage as well as any CEO!

Tracy P. said...

Ho. Ly. Buckets. Talk about taking on a life of its own! What have you gotten yourself into? (I hear you saying, "I KNOW!!!!") But at least this one won't take as much inspiration as administration, and you are gonna be more famous than you already are, and people will have so much fun and be encouraged by each other. (And you can go on hiatus for school breaks!) Have your kids started back yet?

Rhea said...

Your mind is obviously traveling around the world right now. lol

You're a busy, busy woman right now!

Heather said...

If you find yours, could you see if it knows where mine is by chance??

Mekhismom said...

I love the Blog Around the World concept and am happy to be a part of it. Thank you for all of your hard work. It is appreciated.

Michelle said...

My mind is back in 2003 before I was pregnant with Mister Man. Maybe yours is somewhere nearby?
