Another thing to keep up with

Scrapbooks, photography, knitting, crocheting, reading, blogs, magazine subscriptions, newspaper articles, Tweets, Plurks, Facebook.  If you're looking at this list and thinking, "What about [fill in the blank]?" then you are probably just as overwhelmed and addicted to the technology and social networking that we've grown so accustomed to.  I have a love hate relationship with all things technology.  I love all the things it brings closer, but I hate that I feel like I have to check and be a part of almost every social networking site I can find.  However, I love being a part of every social networking site I can find.  If it peaks my interest I'm going to check it out.

As you can tell my blog doesn't have much to read.  I thought I would become a blogger and ended up never making the time to do it because it required me to sit at my desk.  Now I've got a new MacBook Air and an iPhone that I can blog from.  Therefore, no more excuses and should have plenty of time to blog.  Just another thing to keep up with.  Right.  That's what I said.

The thing is I have this obnoxious need to talk to folks, but most of the time I don't have anything interesting to say to people that aren't interested in what I'm interested in.  I have a lot of interests and find more connections online than I do in person.  So now I'm going to add one more thing to my list and do my best to keep up with all of it.  I will not beat myself up if I don't finish that knitting project before Christmas, finish the scrapbooks before her next birthday, watch the news or read that magazine.  I will do what I can in the time I have and enjoy life as much as I can.  I'm going to make an attempt to shut out the SHOULDS.  Wish me luck.
