Hi, I'm Grandma K, and I am a procrastinator.

There certainly should be, if there isn't, a Procrastinator Anonymous group, and I should  attend meetings daily.  There is certainly a joke hidden there!

I really haven't been putting things off.  I really have been busy.  There is so much that isn't getting done.  I think (rationalize) I am still trying to get over the trip to New England that bloomed with the follow up to the trip to Mason.  There was a mountain of laundry to do and many small details to catch up on.

The real truth here is that I don't know where the time has flown.  Days seem like they are just hours long, and it seels that someone is fooling with the calendar steeling days from it.

I still haven't gotten the book from the San Francisco book ready to be printed, and the photos from New England still need editing.  I bought a new Photoshop (because the discs from the previous program have suddenly disappeared), and it is so time consuming. 

All excuses - I know.  This blog has become the very last thing on the "to do list."   I am finding myself falling into the trap of so many other bloggers - the evil, time eating Facebook.  That application is as addicting as crack - I think.  Never having tried crack, I can only imagine.

There is some news  around these parts.  News that doesn't thrill me and threatened to disrupt family cohesiveness.  I am accepting it, but I still don't like it.  There will be more on this later.  It isn't something to be shared at this point because things may change.  Now that's pretty vague, isn't it?

This weekend I am here alone.  I have so many want-to-do items on my list that I will never get to them all.  Frankly, I am enjoying the peace and quiet with no pressures, etc.  I would say that, but almost as soon as  G got to the ranch, he called me with the news that the TV didn't work.  To cut to the chase he didn't turn on the power strip. But, of course, I was called to fix it from 250 miles away.  I am so glad SIL got there right after he had made an idiot of himself calling Customer Support!

This should become a "girls weekend" like we used to do.  That means all the things I was dreaming about accomplishing will disappear, but I am just so thankful my girls (daughter and two grands) want to include me in their adventures this weekend.

Don't let it bother you that you haven't got the time to blog! Because I know you will when you can. And, yes that darned FB is a time eater for sure. I keep saying to cut back, and do something else but there I sit reading things from people I don't even know as in friends of my friends who tag my friend. Did you get that? LOL

Have a good girls weekend; that's more important than laundry for sure. :)

Yes, that Facebook seems to take up more time than it deserves! I am making a effort to not go on too often anymore! Have to wean myself off slowly!


Facebook..yes, steals all my time..I'm thinking of limiting myself to 2 hours in the morning and a recap 2 hours in the evening..but it's's how I keep in touch with the grands and the ggs..sigh.

The weekend sounds just wonderful!
I do my FB two hours in the morning and 2 in the evening. I love the games.
But then I have e-mails to read through and of course my Soap from 1-2.
Plus I am working on my family genealogy for the kids christmas gift, so I do spend a lot of time on my computer.

I have been checking Facebook a little bit lately but will never be one of those who can't live without it. But I know a lot of bloggers who have quit blogging and just do Facebook now.

Hope your family situation rights itself. I hate to admit this, but I love weekends alone when Hubby has gone to the lease.
