Getting over it

I really shouldn't start stuff.  You know when you're all fired up to join in and commit to submitting, say, a photo a day for a month, or a million acts of kindness for 8 weeks, or even blogging every Tuesday and Friday. That.

I just can't keep it up.  I'll have all the excuses in the world - work, kids, sickness - but then I look around at how much others are achieving with just as many and more obstacles and I am shamed.  Don't get me wrong, I have all the best intentions and would love to do good for mankind etc etc, but sometimes I just can't be arsed!

While I'm on a whingefest - I've had enough of illness.  It's probably only been a couple of months but after a cold that lasted until it developed into a flu, a tendon problem in my shoulder that stopped me using me right arm properly for weeks and now tonsillitis - I AM SICK OF BEING SICK!!!  It's spread to my kids who are still coughing.  Of course The Moneymaker had a cold for two days and got over it (except now he's complaining of having a sore throat whilst glaring in my general direction).

But then after reading other people's stories I am once again wanting to give myself a slap 'upside o the head'.  Build a bridge and get over it.  Buy a deck of cards and deal with it.  Put your medicine in the fridge and take a chill pill! [Those last two were courtesy of Arj Barker, seen at The Flight of the Conchords concert, without his permission but I'm sure he wouldn't mind.]

As for the Photo A Day July, I've almost finished them and will post them ... soon.

For now I've got to put into place the massive amount of info I gained at Nuffnang Blogopolis so I might be able to get sponsored to attend Digital. Parents Conference next March. Wish me luck and please pass on any tips to help me get a sponsor!

[This is my first try at using the Blogger app on my phone so hopefully it looks OK and here's a pic just so I can see if it works :$ ]


  1. There's a bird in your coffee!! That's a great achievement right there ...

    No idea how to get sponsors to send us places. When you find out .. let me know too.

  2. Becci, I think you should just do what you want to do, not what you feel obliged to do. It's gotta be fun!
