excuses excuses excuses

Okay so each day--okay MOST days--I look at my bloglist (not the cute little one on the right side of my blog screen, but this one):
and I become overwhelmed with dozens of new posts EVERY SINGLE DAY, cute design blogs, craft blogs, vender blogs, friends from way back when blogs, family members who are gems in my heart blogs.

I follow A LOT of blogs..... actually this screen shot was taken after "Hiding" at least a dozen of them... my new resolve is to taper down my reading list so that I can give more loving attention to you bloggers out there who show me the same, and well, a lot of them who don't because I'm a glutton for punishment!

Sometimes I try to just PLOW through them all to at least keep up with the reading, and stay informed, but doing this makes me neglect my responsiblity of commenting, so Hopefully, with a tapered down list, I will keep up better. I'm done with the excuses, time to get back to work, being a better blogger once again.

If I wanted to continue with the excuses, i could come up with a few dozen as to why I have not been blogging lately, but they would seem like not very good reasons to some--well maybe all--of you.

Still have no decent camera... have gotten a few comments about the crummy quality of pictures that comes from my pathetic little phone camera, so I have been just keeping them to myself...

The most exciting thing that happened this week was getting all my laundry done, thanks to my saint of a Sister in Law, Tina and her husband Corey who helped me gather and haul all my clothes to the local laundromat, which was extremely hard to find, since I live in a more "posh" area of town these days--lol. Corey turned out to be an all-star at the laundromat. He has long long arms, and could reach and throw clothes into washers and driers, faster and more efficiently than anyone I have ever seen! I told him, I never want to go to a laundromat without him EVER AGAIN! For some reason that didn't make him nearly as excited as I hoped :) Corey also shampooed and then came back the next day and vaccummed Scooby's carpet in her room, because she has been spilling far too much Sprite on it, and I was beginning to get very concerned! Now it looks like brand new again. I love those two angels of mine.

While we were at the Laundromat, Joe felt he urge to help me clean up the house, so now we have a super clean house, clean laundry, and a happy Molly. Strange how that works.... why somehow having a clean area changes your mood and outlook on life....is beyond me, but I'm enjoying it.

I think I'll go back to sleep now :)

I hear you on the house being clean affecting your mood!! I actually feel like there is more light in my house after it's spotless. Wierd huh? I'm also sooo glad you have your sister-in-law out there with you. I worry about you so far away (as you already know) but it makes me feel better to know you have her.

I know how you feel to be having so many blogs to read.. I just got rid of about 20 that I was following myself.

Yay for clean houses!

What? You don't have a washer and dryer? I have NO idea how you can do laundrymats. Thanks goodness you had "angel" helpers. Ok, my question is...why does all your writing not fit inside your page parameters. It's sometimes hard to read. Just wondering. Hope you start updating more, since you know, you're paring down your reading list, hahaha. Finally, thanks for your comment and compliments.

Allyson & Jere said...

Oh, one more thing. There is NOTHING better than a clean house. It really does affect how you feel about life!

Can you do my house next... maybe help me trim my bloglist too- I actually somehow read all of that, I might not sleep but I read them all LOL!

Ah man ,the laundromat.
I do not miss that place, well the smell of the laundry and the all night place chatting with the locals... I do miss some of that, but mostly no.

What a blessing!! I should hire them to help me. It really can be bothersome to live in dirty all the time. I know from experience. Even right now I think I would have a constant smile on my face if that ceiling fan above me were not caked with so much dust. How come that doesn't come off when you turn the fan on??

I've noticed it too! The cleaner my room is, the more I'm in it.

The cleaner my house is, the happier my parents are. The happier my parents are the happier I am!

Thank you Doctrine and Covenants!!
