Manic Monday

One of my monthly goals for January was to post on here every day.  Oops!  Yesterday was just too busy.  We went to visit a friend who just gave birth last week, and by the time we got home and ate dinner, I was dealing with one cranky baby!  I’ve been trying to instill a bedtime routine, but it’s not been going according to plan, i.e., the wee man screams his little head off!  So by the time he finally got settled, I crashed myself.  Thus, no time for blogging.

I feel like I’ve been spending too much time online, anyway.  Is there such a thing?  🙂  But when I have 5 or 10 minutes free, my first inclination is to pop online and check my email, rather than empty the diaper pail or sweep the floor or even just drink a glass of water.  There is always a chore waiting to be done, and I feel like they are put on the backburner so I can check the celebrity gossip updates on Jezebel!

Maybe I should make an effort to be online less, or at least to create some sort of schedule so that I just check email a couple of times a day rather than the five or 10 times I normally do!  I could use more time for reading or crocheting or cleaning out the cat litter.  Sad, but necessary.

With that said, to make up for yesterday’s missing post, I will try to post twice today.  Ooh la la!  Are you excited or what?!

This is what I had for breakfast today:

Blueberry bagel with almond butter and a bowl of grapes

Now it is time for that all-important task — drinking my morning cup of coffee!  Toodaloo.

    Why don’t you check your email as a reward for getting a specific task completed.

      I think my problem is coming on to check my email and then checking out a bunch of other sites! I get sucked in…

What happens when you love to eat healthy (and some unhealthy!) food, love to live frugally, and love to write? You start a food blog, of course. Of course!

Eating well and living frugally does not always come easy, but Lord help me, I am trying! This blog will detail my endeavor to live the best life possible. This will include pictures of my cats, odes to almond butter, and the general miscellany that makes up my life. Enjoy!
