Note to self

You get a lot more done around the house when you don’t even turn on the computer until 3:00.


About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.

  1. haha! I can definitely relate to that. 😉

  2. We did yard work yesterday when I got home from work, so my computer didn’t go on until 8:30pm.

    Of course, all of my work is done online, so if I want to do any work I have to have my computer on [smile].

    Ha ha! I’ve been sitting here since after lunch, it’s now time for dinner. There isn’t much else I can accomplish with a crabby baby 🙂

  4. yeah… i have that SAME issue! lolololol… i should post that on my fridge!!

  5. Isn’t that the truth! Besides that, if you’re computer is where you work you get a lot more done if you don’t check your email or your blog first… because one thing inevitably leads to another and before you know it you have a whole day shot to hell. On the other hand, on the days I manage to stay away from the computer, when I get back I have too much email to wade through and it becomes like the snail mail that piles up near the computer. Case in point, I just logged on real quick, as I’m on my way out the door, to check ONE thing and somehow found myself at a pretty cool blog I’ve never visited before. OK I really gotta go NOW!

    • Um, thanks for the “pretty cool blog” flattery… (I’ve had problems with athiest trolls, given my usually notably Christian content, so please forgive my hesitancy in approving your comment; I’m slightly concerned about to what/whom I’ve opened the comment-floodgates. I’ll assume, for now, that you’ve come to play nice.)

  6. I play nice, though I would prefer not being called an atheist troll :(. I happened upon your blog because I noticed link, on my blog, to this particular post and as I mentioned I was in a hurry so I didn’t even notice how old the post was or that your blog was a Christian blog. The post was great and totally relevant to my life (see we have stuff in common already) and the name of your blog, to me, is very cool.

    • No… I didn’t mean to call you a troll. I was, however, confessing concern. Due to a few posts, one particular guy posted relentlessly, ridiculing just about every part of my character and interests and beliefs. On top of that, he called my blog to attention of a number of other athiests, and they had a wee bit of a heyday, until I put the comments on moderation and placed several IP addresses on the blocklist. 😦

      I was trying (albeit, perhaps not too hard) to give you the benefit of the doubt; I didn’t know for certain that you were one of the previous troll’s cronies, but I was concerned that you might be.

      I apologize for my assumptions. It’s hard to find the balance of where wisdom lies in such matters. I hope you understand.

      So, welcome! 🙂 And, I’m glad you like my ungainly blog title, and that that little post caught you just right!

  7. I don’t know who caused your problems, I had a similar situation on my blog. The only cronies I have are respectful and post what they like on their own blogs but they nor I are of the ilk that just go and attack other bloggers…we’re way too busy being distracted and not getting things done than to engage in such nonsense.
