Sorry to disappoint

I sure hope you woke up this morning and thought, “It’d be fabulous to go to Anissa’s site and just read a bunch of mad rambling and pointless babble.”

Cause, for one, it gives me warm fuzzies to think I’d be your first thought in the morning. Those grandeur delusions, I’m telling ya, they run rampant around here!

Secondly, that’s all I got for you.

After talking all glowy and rosy about the new writing, editing and ninja-ish jobs, I had to sit down and actually start DOING them.  Plus, there’s that whole secret-lab concoction brewing.  Did I mention that I’m organizing a Twitter party for a special company? I’m figuring out how to throw a blog baby shower for the world’s funniest blogger before…oh, say, the baby storms into my living room wondering where all her stuff is. Crossing my fingers for the chance to speak at BlogHer with these two awesome ladies (did you vote for us yet?).  Drowning in a flood of emails from companies who’ve all suddenly decided they want to work with me THIS freaking week.

As I am still pulling the single-mom routine on a daily basis, the added load is a bit staggering to take.

BUT, you’ll be glad to know that I’ve purchased a white board to help me stay on track by listing all the things I have yet to complete.


Seriously? I’m scared of that white board, ya’ll.

It would totally petrify me except my kids tried to make the white board a happier place by giving me this:


Henry, the Happy Blogging Hamster

Please be patient with me as I find my balance.

And I thought I’d let you know that my first post went up over at Deep South Moms today. Whee!

    apparently 7:30 in the morning is too early for Deep South Moms, b/c you weren’t there yet 🙁 That’s okay – I’ll check later. and maybe if i had a whiteboard I would have an easier time balancing Mommiehood, School and Work? AWW who the hell am I kidding – I just want to sniff the markers

    You are livin’ large, I guess, is all I can say!

    I have a notepad that looks like your whiteboard. Sans hamster. I think the whiteboard looks scarier because it’s bigger than a notepad, though. Hmm….

    I have similar heart-stopping lists posted in various places around my house. They’re helpful, but demoralizing.

    No one drew me a rodent though.

    @Niki a.k.a. Mommielicious,

    did you get to read the DSM post?

    MARKERS rule! It’s a struggle because I’m adding things to the board faster than I’m taking them off. FAIL?

    YOU get hugs and kisses and everlasting adoration, my friend.

    Is getting sidetracked onto Twitter for an hour considered working? It is, right? Yeah? PLEASE?

    @Holly at Tropic of Mom,

    Large: hmmm, when they start paying, then it’ll be large. LOL

    It IS scary, it just hovers behind me all day “Anissa, you’re not done yet….still more to do…eat more cookies…”

    Yo! It’s not a rodent! It’s a cute and fuzzy representation of my children’s love for me…with a tail…and whiskers…and a nose, ok, yes, it’s a rodent. But it’s a rodent of love.

    The lists? They are a’killing me!

    I have a white board in the kitchen, my bedroom, and my office! And my kids usually end up writing song lyrics, or drawing silly faces on them! LOL

    Congrats on all the new jobs!!
