Mortified? I'm mortified that I even have this word in my vocabulary! Still, although it most definitely hints at my age, it is also an appropriate word, describing perfectly the frenzy of life I find myself in!
Spinning, swirling, reaching to catch up with my own life! What a mess!
I have just now finished the mounds of laundry from our Spring Break trip. Nothing has been put away, however, the stacks are neatly folded in my laundry room, waiting to be repacked for our Easter get-away to Dallas--we leave on Thursday.
I missed a deadline: I have mentioned that I am a non-traditional college student and am currently taking an online course: Family Systems, Structures and Relationships. My syllabus suggested an April 1st deadline for an optional paper. Note: I used the words "suggested" and "optional paper." To this mid-life momma, these words translate....get that extra credit paper done by April 1st...you fool!"
I did not. Today, I will submit this paper rather sheepishly, right after I finish this post. Blogging, after all, is my first priority! Did I hear the word, "Fool!"
A few weeks ago, I discovered a blog that will critique other blogs. Sound fun? I thought so! All I needed to do was send him my blog address, link his blog to my post and he promised to critique my blog. He did, I didn't. I feel ashamed! I believe completely in good blogging etiquette, so, while just a little late (there's that deadline phobia!)....here's the link kind sir! Thank you for your fabulous critique and your outstanding blog service to many!
I have yet to "pay it forward" from the really nice Blogging "Thinkers Award" I have received. I will. But in an effort to redeem my self-respect, I must first, get that optional paper submitted. Who am I kidding, I need to write it first and then I will submit it--a day late from the suggested deadline. Geesh! Anyone out there have any ideas for a paper on Family and Couple Maps?
May your Monday be mortify-free! I've got enough of that energy going on around here for all of us!
