Blog Burn Out


Sheesh, who knew Blogtoberfest was going to send me reeling? I am really feeling a little weary from all this blogging. Can I have a wee break? Or am I committed to forging onwards, regardless of blog burn out?

I did wind up sneaking out to the bin last night. At 10:30pm. Matt was on his way to bed. And I was watching my movie, though my mind was wandering to my bin. At least I am faithful to my bin, right?

Well, I should have followed my gut instinct. It's never really failed me. Last night's bin contents - a banana skin (really! these people don't even recycle, let alone compost), a used paper coffee cup (recycling) and a whole bunch of other garbage (recycling!) that I didn't feel the urge to document, let alone sift through.
I braved the elements. Surely this earns me a day off blogging? Please Big Cat?
And just before I pop off out into the long-awaited sunshine, Drewzel of Blog Portion played in a nameless meme, that originated from here, so I'm playing too. Otherwise this post would be forever known as the post with no photo (kind of like the street with no name).
Here are the rules.
Instructions:
Take a picture of yourself right now.
Don’t change your clothes, don’t fix your hair - just take a picture.
Post that picture with NO editing.
Post these instructions with the picture.
Here's me and Tiny. The world's tiredest baby. Clearly no photo-shopping has occurred.

That photo is lovely - a real slice of life. Take a rest, you deserve it - hey, I didnt even attempt Blogtoberfest because I knew it would be a disaster.

That's a beautiful photo. Now chill-out; take a snooze. And have nice weekend!

You've earned a break, Ms. Mama, with your funny posts that had us both (Mr Tacc 'n me) chuckling. Go and soak up some sunshine, we'll catch you when you're revitalised!

Drewzel said...

The photo is lovely!
Don't bust your chops Blogtoberfesting, I don't think that's what it's about :P

Take a day off, take the week if you need it. But come back soon with more tales for us.

Daily blogging is hard work! Take a leaf out of my book and take a day (or two) off!

A day off, a day off - you know us Mama's never get a day off! (please note I am just kiding).
I have been reading through the Mama archives and Tiny isn't nearly so tiny, still cute as a button though.
I wasn't brave enough to attempt this meme.

Go, have a lovely weekend and don't turn that computer on, not even once!
