I never thought I’d say this, I of the 10 times hourly email check; I of the “what, no one has commented on the post I shared on Facebook? It’s been at least fifteen minutes!” Yes folks, “I” did not ONCE check her WordPress stats yesterday. No, not once, and as of this writing, “I” STILL has not checked.
Weekends are getting tough. Blogwise, that is. I’m having trouble writing for some reason. Weekdays, no problem, but I will admit that I’m not putting my whole self into the daily effort either.
It must be because it’s summer. Well d’uh, of course it is, in this hemisphere at any rate. Not nearly as much to read on the blogs. People have posted “Gone Fishin’” and “See you in September” notices.
I understand completely. I’m feeling the pull to be anywhere other than behind a computer keyboard, which trust me, is a novel experience.
This weekend in particular is tougher than usual. In part it’s due to the full moon. It has kept me awake two nights running. If that was not bad enough, raucous neighbours a few blocks over partied to the wee hours. That’s nice. I’m glad that they can gather and enjoy each other’s company, but the braying laughter… the constant shrieks of delight… forget trying to sleep through that.
So, I’m sleep deprived. I’m also a wee bit Reiner deprived. I miss my hubby, his company. I sent him several emails yesterday. Nothing at all important. Just random thoughts that, at the time, felt like they needed sharing.
How are things with you Sweetie? I see you’ve been posting on Mindat – are you getting some time off this weekend? I had a poor sleep last night – noisy traffic and the full moon, I guess. Anyway, today I’m not too energetic. I took the empty booze/beer bottles to the Greens yards sale and mailed the packages at Sobeys. Then home – tried to nap but noisy neighbours. Ah well, nothing really going on, so that’s good. I did some social media* stuff. So far, so good. Other than that, not much to report. It’s a nice breezy day, but warm. Hope you are doing OK. Miss you a bunch.
Followed later in the day by:
Well, that was annoying and loud and long about a hundred motorcyclists, all on incredibly loud choppers just passed by the house. What a racket! When a full minute or more passed by and the sound still didn’t end, I got off my seat to check it out. Turns out all of the other neighbours on the street were rubbernecking, too!
And five minutes later, I sent this very important update
I forgot to tell you… when I was at Sobey’s I checked to see if they had any cat food on special. Guess how much they are asking for a standard tin of Friskies – the little tin. Go on, guess. OK, I’ll tell you. EIGHTY-FIVE cents. That’s correct. $0.85 per tin. The large tin is a buck forty-nine. Unbelievable!
So, now you too are up to date on the minutia of my life these past forty-eight hours. Scintillating, no?

*In other news, I do have something exciting to share. I have joined as a volunteer with the Federation of Women’s Institutes of Canada. I am, ahem, the new Social Media Coordinator. This means I must get up to speed on Twitter and Instagram! Stat! Pinterest and Facebook? I’m good. Click on any of these links to learn more about the FWIC.
And by all means, I welcome any ideas you might have about women’s institutes, social media, or the price of cat food!
