I have been so preoccupied with waiting to find out the good news of yesterday that I have completely avoided doing the work I needed to get done this week.

Today I am suppose to clean the house, but since I put off grading my large projects for my online university class, I have been doing that all day instead! Oh well, the house will keep. Nothing looks dirty anyway! {cringe}

So instead of having a nice clean house today, I have a sore butt. The sore butt comes from sitting in the upright position all day at the kitchen table so I can assess multicultural scenarios and child development presentations. I couldn't very well sit on the couch. You know what happens when I sit on the couch and haven't had any caffeine! Naps!

Sigh, I know it's a rough life....! {evil grin}

Incidentally, my groin (not a pretty word) muscles and shins are also sore from the jog I decided to take on the treadmill the other day.

I don't tell you this to complain but rather to illustrate how low I have sunk. I would much rather spend hours dr. googling away or looking at adoption agencies....or ooh, the miracleswaiting website...donor egg groups...contracts for donor eggs...aaaah! Before I know it, the day has passed by without any of my items getting done. This is what I have done all week. Obsessed and preoccupied!

So today I have to resolve that next week I will not while away the hours with searching. Really, I won't! :)



  1. I can't say I blame you for being preoccupied! You've had a lot going on! Congrats on the DONATED RE - that is so amazing and I am so happy for you!! Pot of gold is right! And I loved the image of your leprechaun! :-) Good for you for getting your projects graded before the weekend - hope you can enjoy it without a vacuum in sight!(cleaning is so overrated!).

  2. I agree with you that Dr Google gobbles up whole chunks of the day without you realising. I made myself have a computer free day the other day and was flabergasted at how much I got done. Was a bit scary really that I can easily spend so much time 'wasting' in front of the computer. But then if its helping you get answers it's not really wasting time is it? Blah, housework can wait.

  3. Girlfriend, this is why I had to go back to school. I was out of school for a whole school year, hoping, wishing, cycling and trying to get pregnant AND Dr. Googling everything all day every day. Not good. I have to say it's much better with less time on my hands to do all of this. I could probably become an RE if I had to! ;) Not to mention that working in a public school in Chicago is the best form of birth control. Ever. Yeah, that's a lie.

    Hope you're having a great weekend! Hugs!
