Begging your forgiveness…

I’m longing for a 40-hour day!

This is both an explanation and a request for absolution, mainly to my favourite bloggers whose posts I have “liked” and commented upon in the past. You know who you are. 😉

You may have noticed an absence of such comments/likes from me over the past couple of months. The reasons for this are fourfold.

  1. A day is comprised of only 24 hours. I know it’s not news to you (or to me) but – sob! – it’s a problem.
  2. I’ve had a live-in boyfriend since September. John is a super helpmate and all-round fantastic person – but it means I do way more things as part of a duo than I did before, when my activities were mostly solo. My blog-post-reading time has thus diminished. (Yeah, it’s all your fault, John! 😅)
  3. My writing time has increased immensely. This includes time spent using a thesaurus or dictionary, so that I don’t say things like “My writing time has increased bigly.” I’ve also begun doing research for a novel.
  4. Moreover, I must keep my own blog updated with my Friday Follies and Laughter: The Universal Language series, and other occasional posts.

In sum, mea culpa for my absence in the “like” and commenting areas of your posts. I promise to read them when I have the chance. I trust you lovely people will understand.

Au revoir, mes amis!

  1. Maybe you should task John with commenting on all the blogs you follow!

    1 – Give him something to do when you’re writing
    2 – He could summarize the posts for you, allowing you to keep up while otherwise occupied
    3 – It would help support your writing/networking needs
    4 – Oh, um. He might actually enjoy some of the stuff you made him read.

    1. Nice suggestions! But I can’t ask him just now. He’s busy vacuuming. He’ll then be washing the bathroom and kitchen floors. After that he’ll relax in a one-hour bath and then will make supper. Did I mention we’re having chicken parmigiana? 😜

  2. I can’t speak for others, but surely most of us understand the constraints of time. I’m glad you are enjoying John. This is a marvelous time in your life, and I hope you get 40 hours a day to get everything done. My rule is that people in the room with me always get attention before people on the screen.

  3. Glad you have someone, sounds like he is a great help! I do things around here to help Michelle, except cook. For some reason, they don’t enjoy Spaghetti every other night.

    For the last week, Michelle and I have been suffering from food poisoning after eating out. Both of us, have been to the Dr. twice. I even got a CT scan of my stomach.

    Stay happy, relax, enjoy your extra time to breathe. I’m sure all of us will be here for you.
