I got to wondering...

Do you have more kids than you do blogs and struggle with finding that oh-so-special quiet time to write (I mean think staight)? Or are you overwhelmed with 20 blog mouths to feed while your realworld kid eats oreos in front of the TV?

I'll go first. In comments.

No kids, but three blogs:

This one gets all the attention, while this one gets ignored, and this one gets treated like the proverbial stepchild.

Only one real blog, but a couple of neglected sites. Three kids, but only one at home. Three books I'm supposed to be writing — now they eat the Oreos.

Three blogs, Jeneane, but I'm not sure where they are anymore. It's the same with the three kids. As for the wives... (OUCH!) God, it's chaos. I don't know. How the hell did we ever get into this mess? Is there no end to it?

PS: Are the Oreos not Baltimore baseballers? Why eat them?

At one time communities would seek counsel from the elders on matters of import. More experience usually translated into lessons learned. Having survived my share of crises, I am still around to share a thought or two. The main lesson is to never stop learning. Reading is good as is seeking other points of view and new ideas like visiting your blog. Finding what is ultimately important leads one to appreciate actuality, efficiency and mindfulness. Helping others to see some of the forest through the trees is another. lifestyles

As many varieties as I thought. And golby, why aren't you on skype. here's the thing; if it's because you don't have a headset/mic, then the next time i get paid i'm ordering your ass one.

Two kids, necessarily skilled at entertaining themselves. One blog, whose purpose I am no longer sure of. It started as a sort of ongoing letter to my mom, but she died two months ago and here I am still writing, sporadically. Other people read it now, and I feel an obligation to give them something worth reading. But I can't often muster the time and attention to write well - mindfully, as AKMA was saying a few days (weeks?) ago. I'm probably not being a mindful parent either. I wonder where my mind goes, when I'm not using it?

The problem is the clearly the Oreos. Shop at Costco and buy the 16 pound bag of animal crackers. That way you can take in two additional homeless blogs in the time you save.
