Where Do You Blog?

Many moons ago, I asked people where they blogged but never answered for myself. I thought I would enlighten my friends with that fascinating fact. I know you are just dying to know.

What prompted me to do this post was that a friend at school today told me she was amazed at my organization skills. What? Me? You’ve got to be kidding.

But, according to her, my blog is updated regularly (ha!) and I am often the first commenter on our mutual friends posts on Facebook.

Ah, but that does not mean I am organized. I multi-task ignore my household.

Here is where I blog/facebook/email.



Yes, in my kitchen. My laptop is on my kitchen counter. When I look to the right, I see this



so I can monitor dinner cooking. When I choose to make dinner, that is.

When I look to the left, I see this



so I can see who is messing around. Right past that is the playroom which I can’t see (thank heavens) but can hear.

Therefore, I can park myself on a stool by my laptop and monitor my household. No, I don’t accomplish the laundry, cleaning, school work, child rearing, or much else.

What a mom, huh?

But if I didn’t do that, you would not receive tidbits like:

Abby: The book fairy came to school today and you bought us books!
Mom: Abby, that is the book fair, baby.

Dad to Anna Grace via Skype: Are you going to stay in your own bed tonight?
Anna Grace: No, never. Well, when you get home.

Alex: Did you know I walked to Wal-Mart the other day? (a mile or so away) Oh, actually, me and David walked to Ashley Park (a shopping mall) also.
Mom: What???? That is miles away.
Alex: Yep, it took us one and a half hours to walk there.
note: yes, my kid is a dope

Katie when driving Dave’s car to school: The gas tank says it’s on empty. Zero miles to empty.
Mom: You will be fine going home. It always reads low.
Katie: Fine. Then I will call you when I break down.

Ah the joys of parenthood. And how wonderful that I can share it with all of you. Especially tonight when Anna Grace is being a pill and refusing to go to bed.

Yes, the joys.

Breathe, breathe, ……

Well this was a fun little peek into your world. Fun. :)
I blog from the basement, basically in the same area with the playroom. I'm not sure if this is good or bad.

Man...I am behind on reading posts. Darn google dashboard isn't working right for me...

Anyway, I love the idea of posting about where you blog. I have a HP mini computer so I move all over the house...I have 4 different places where I blog from.
