I read too many blogs! I try to comment on too many blogs.

I am struggling. I want to be a good blogger. But it is getting harder and harder to find time to keep up.

Is this a problem? ... you bet! Cos I love all my blogger friends. I really do.

I am going to try harder to keep up.... and still live my life! LOL

I will be back later on this morning with something RIVETING to impart... and failing that.... just more of me 'normal' drivel!

ABOVE: a cute wee video of Coco yesterday.

Nothing riveting has happened.. darn. Just about to go out and pay some bills....what fun! Drivel... see?

STOP holding your breath! Nothing riveting is going to happen any time soon. Sadly. I did however, manage to do all my little jobs, paid the bills, bought some plants. ... had lunch and... I have also managed to read and comment of quite a few blogs.... so I'm not feeling so guilty now!

I had some lovely bacon and eggs for lunch.. feel full as a bull now. And sleepy. Getting only a couple of hours sleep at night right now... it's hard being MIDDLE AGED and MENOPAUSAL. Sucks big time.

The kids and I went and visited my Aunt this afternoon, she has been away in Aussy for the past month helping care for her granson while her daughter had her second baby boy. All good there. It was lovely to see photos of the new baby... he's adorable! Sometime, just SOMETIMES I wish I could have another two or three... but not very often! lol

Time to get the dinner finished off... lovely beef stew in the crock pot.... just need to add some veges now.

End of Day: I am hoping that tonight will be the last night I have to sweat/freeze/sweat/freeze all night long! I am going to the dr tomorrow to try and talk them into giving me sleeping pills so I can sleep through the hot flushes... cross your fingers for me. nite nite.


  1. It does get hard, I have culled a lot of blogs cause of the time factor especially now I am back at work. Have a great day and hope the weather is better today :-)

    I know how it is to get behind. When you go out of town, or are sick or there is a holiday - it's hard to catch up. OOOH! something Riviting sounds very exciting!! Is your furtiture coming early? ...debbie

  3. I love getting your comments, but it shouldn't be stressful. Lucky for you I only blog every 2or 3 times a month. Meanwhile, I love reading your blog, so no worries!!

  4. I do too! I try to trim my list but then I end up adding more. Try not to feel guilty about it.

  5. raining cats and dogs here again Chris
    I read your blog everyday and enjoy all of it so keep it up..hey cut down on your sleeping time and get reading those blogs...2.30am is a good time to catch up as there arent so many household interruptions

  6. What a cute little yapper Coco is, another great video. You are going to make us come back for something riveting, you tease.

  7. I'm happy to you can squeeze me onto your comments list! - thanks. I'm sure everyone else really appreciated it too. xxx

    give up on my blog chris as its not very interesting lol and i hear you about the menopause i sleep fine but its all the rest of the cr*p that goes with it lol

    donna from work

  9. I am so glad I am not the only one totally stressed out about blog reading! I use Google Reader, do you? If you aren't using it, don't start! It's an ASSHOLE! I hate when I log in and it tells me I have 371 posts unread. Like I need something keeping track of what a failure I am. Why not come out with the Laundry Lister or the Chore Tracker so we can see how far behind I am on housework too? Stresses me the FLIP out!! Who needs that kind of pressure?? NOT ME!! :)

  10. Heck don't stress about reading blogs :) AND you're telling me its hard being middle aged and menopausal. huh...

  11. It's lucky I only post once every couple of weeks eh?! I only have about 14 blogs I follow, and only 2 of them are regular, so I don't feel the stress at all. Perhaps I need to follow more.....?!!

  12. Now that I know how hard it can get, I'm appreciating your comments even more!

  13. Don't stress about the blogs,don't worry about the drivel, we love it. It is your life and much more interesting than our own. Know what you mean about menapause, but it won't last forever, then we too can be one of those older ladies who sit there and give knowing looks when others start striping of their cardigans due to hot flushes.
    Can not making any sense be blamed on menapause too?

  14. Sure know how the hot flushs feel, are they suppose to go away eventually? That would be nice!!

  15. Thank you for your kind comments on my blog...

    Hope the Dr's appointment goes well...

  16. Oh Coco is very cute!
    I have been a very, very bad blogger lately but I do still care about all my blogger friends.
    Thanks for your comments to me.
    I know what you mean about menopause. I have some nights when I am up at 3am and can't sleep until the next night. It is awful!

  17. Hey Chris! I'm on vacation in Florida and today is the first time I've checked in on blogs. Don't stress about it... it can be overwhelming and it shouldn't be! If you read one and you feel like commenting, do...otherwise, don't worry. I read a lot of blogs, too, but I don't comment on every single post. Sometimes I just don't have anything to say. (Believe it or not! LOL!!!) I think most people understand. But if you cut my blog from your list, I'll be mad as hell! LOL!!!!! Just kidding, of course! :o)

    Hope your Dr. can help you out with the menopause crap. I've been in menopause since I was 37 and trust me, I'm about ready to kill myself - or someone else - and I'm still on hormones because I can't stand to NOT be on them! Ugh!



  18. The time crunch is why I maintain a pretty short list of blogs I read regularly. However, be assured that we do understand if you don't comment each and every day! We will still love you!

  19. I know what you mean! It's okay though. You DON'T have to always comment on everyone's blog. I only visit everyone's one in awhile because I cannot keep up either. I don't expect people to comment on mine even though I like it. I get 50 readers today and I'm lucky to get 1 comment! I do love hearing from you but I don't expect to to visit me all the time and HAVE to comment. :) Don't make it a hard thing for you or it could take the fun of it for you.

  20. Don't feel bad. I use to comment all the time on people's blog, but I just don't have time anymore. Now I just comment when I have time. Four little kids will do that to you. Especially when one of them takes up all your time. The little guy is back to losing weight every week. He's down to the 6th percentile now.
