I’m a bad blogger

If you Google “Bad Blogger,” here is what comes up. LOL. What should really be shown is a picture of me.  Thanks to all of my readers who emailed me checking to see if I was ok.  The summer has been a bit crazy so far but I am back now to posting regular updates.  Thank you so much for continuing to read my blog.  That means so much to me!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous summer!

Blogging–What’s that?

If I still have any blog readers, thank you.  The neglect is not intentional. I am a college instructor and have been in the middle of giving final exams, grading final papers, and all the paperwork that comes with the end of the semester.  Blogging to resume asap.  I wanted you to know I was still alive; just covered under a mountain of paperwork.  I don’t mind because I love my job.  Thanks for reading my blog!


Be back soon,

My Internet is finally back online

My Internet has been down a few days so I have not been able to post on my blog.  Thank goodness it is finally working again!!  Yay!!  I was seriously going  into withdrawals.  There is only so much I can do from the Blackberry and unfortunately that does not include posting on WordPress.  More posts coming soon. Thanks for hanging around! 😀

I’m a bad blogger











Today when I Googled “very bad blogger” this is the picture that I found.  What should really be there is MY picture. I haven’t posted on my blog in almost a month.  If I have any readers left, thank you.  I am not going to go into a long explanation about my absence because I personally don’t enjoy reading those kinds of posts.  But I will say that The Write Gal is back and I am excited about posting on my blog again!

I hope I have some readers left….

The good news is I survived teaching my first semester of college. The bad news is I got sick shortly thereafter. I am not talking about just a little sick but the I am in the bed with a wretched stomach virus unable to move sick.  Then with doing ALL of my Christmas shopping at the last minute combined with the holidays, unfortunately my blog has been the one to suffer. So I hope I still have some readers left.  Maybe at least one?  Does my Mom count?  From here on I pledge to post at least twice per week.  I have got to get on over to MomDot.  I bet they have surely fired me as a contributing writer by now.

Here’s to me being a better blogger in 2009!  If you are still one of my few readers, THANK YOU!  🙂

My Stress – Part Two

Have you ever felt like this poor cat?  Or like you are burning the candle at both ends and there isn’t much candle left?  Well welcome to my world.  I thought this week was going to be so much better since I was off until Thursday for Fall Break.  Who was I kidding?  The good news is that the draft for the Fashion Show script is ready.  I am going to spend all day today with the clothes to make sure my descriptions actually fit what the models will be wearing.  The stores provide their descriptions of the clothes so I at least have some place to start. But it is totally obvious to me that not all people are good writers because I got some real gems this year:  “This jacket is perfect for Fall.”  Say what?  Is it a leather jacket, microfiber lightweight, heavy, reversible, dressy, or casual?  And who knows what color the thing is.  So needless to say that I have my work cut out for me today, and tomorrow will be spent at the Rehearsal.

The bad news you ask?  For starters, my house is a wreck and I don’t remember the last time I cleaned a toilet.  I need to unload and reload the dishwasher.  Ashes needs a bath and I hope he can’t smell himself.  If someone came to the door right now I would pretend I am not home.  This may be hard to do considering my big ‘ol SUV is in the driveway along with my husband’s truck and work car.  The laundry I have done is thrown on the bed and I am dangerously close to not being able to find and/or sleep in the bed.   My laundry?  What a laugh!  Mine is the last to get done.  I think today I will be wearing a G-string for lack of other choices.  If I don’t wash my clothes soon, the SPANX will be next and then I just don’t want to imagine the alternative after that.  And the real kicker is…my husband announced this a.m. that his parents who live four hours away are travelling today and might “stop by.”  AAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Let me stop here before I write something that I will regret later. 

SOS: Mom and Ash don’t you want to come over Monday when Holly’s in school and help me clean this pit? I thought my Mom and my Sister still read my blog,  but maybe not since I haven’t updated it recently.  Geez I need a housekeeper, and some sleep!!!  I have had less than 8 hours in the last two days because I have been up all hours working.

If you are local you should come to the hospital Fashion Show which is being held on Monday and Tuesday night next week.  All of my hard work is definitely worth it when I see it all come together.  Plus ticket sales this year are raising money for the Hospital’s Breast Health campaign.

Happy Weekend!

Blog Neglect and My Stress

I apologize to all of my regular readers for neglecting The Write Gal lately.  I just wanted everyone to know that it is totally unintentional.  It is no exaggeration when I say that teaching is KICKING MY TAIL this semester.  This is my first year teaching so I am having to make up all lectures, assignments, tests, papers, etc. as I go along.  It is so hard and not to mention stressful!  Let’s add to it my other duties of Mom, cook, chauffeur, Bible Study leader, and there are so many others I temporarily blocked them out of my head.  And let’s not forget I am working on writing the script for the hospital fashion show again this year.  I totally feel like the cat in this picture.

Back to teaching…To all of the teachers out there I commend you!  I know enough about the subject matter that I could probably just wing it but I can’t do that because I would be doing a disservice to my students.  I am probably putting way too much stress on myself but I think I should give them the best education possible.  So that means I spend hours, and hours, and more hours preparing my lesson plans and lectures.  But honestly I don’t mind doing it because I really love my students and I absolutely love teaching!  I feel like that is what God has led me to do.  I actually was an Education major in college for a while but I switched my major to Journalism.  A big part of me has always wanted to teach and I am thrilled to have the chance. 

We are on Fall Break now and I am off until Thursday.  I definitely plan to get caught up on writing for my blog and reading the other blogs I enjoy.  So check back next week for some great posts.  Maybe I will get some much needed housework and laundry done too (now that sounds just mind-numbing exciting, don’t you think? ).

Happy Weekend Everybody!
