Hop Around

As I type, I feel like I am sneaking in a post, not because I 'm racing the clock to beat the time when my sleeping children awake, I wish. But to beat the time they decide they want to use the computer. They stand next to me, yelling and demanding, sit on my lap, try to share the chair, against my will of course, and do everything they can to make me give in to their persistent request.

We recently got a new computer, which I'm not happy about, but that's another post for another day, and we decided to put the older computer down in the basement. At the time, only 6 months ago, the kids weren't really interested in using the computer and their request to use it was rare. A lot changes in 6 months, my kids have become little computer geeks and at 5 and 3 are probably better navigating most websites then my mom, sorry mom. So now, most my thoughts are lost, to screams they want to use the computer. Most my time, is spent breaking up fights to use the computer and most my posts have been resulted to making rough drafts on paper and then translating them to the computer when every one is asleep. And sleep is something my 11 month old hasn't been doing lately, so I'm sleep deprived and my mind is toast.

So, what's a better thing to do when you have to get your mind going again, need inspiration, and can barely function? Hop around and meet some new bloggers, of course with my coffee in hand.
 Here are some great Friday Blog Hops. Thank goodness it's Friday!

  5. lol My son just started full day school so he is not around all day, but he definitely bugs me if i'm on the computer and he wants to go on. Or if I am recording an exercise move while he is around he will start dancing right in front of the computer cause he likes to see himself on the screen !

  7. Hi,

    I total understand. The kids have their own computer that they have to share. Each of them gets a set time they know they have to get off. It help calm down some of the arguements. Thank goodness I have a mini laptop. Although I always have to make sure its out of reach from the twins. They like to grab and type (bang) away. lol

    My hubby is the same way about cooking. I say to him, "Why dont you cook?". He tells me, "Oh your a better cook than me." (whatever) or my favorite line is, "I dont like cooing in those pots". lol

    I hope you find some much needed sleep during the weekend. Thanks for coming by.

  33. Wow, Danielle! That's quite a list of comments. I guess blog hops are the way to go if you want to boost your # of followers!
    Thanks for stopping by. I think my Hubs holds out a little when it comes to cooking-he's always talking about a chef he worked for at a restaurant in a hotel when he was younger-but he really doesn't cook well. I guess that's what happens when you have a mom who cooks very well and then you marry someone who cooks (period. Like I said, I'm no Emeril. I just won by default!) Count your blessings that your hubs even attempts to cook!
