Another 24 Hours

There never seems to be enough time in a day for me to accomplish everything I need to do. It’s getting to the point where I wish there were an added 24 hours to each day. Oh, the things I could accomplish then!

For instance:

  • I could run the three or four errands I’ve been meaning to run for the last three or four days.
  • I could finish at least one of the ongoing projects that I am working on for one of my three choruses.
  • I could practice my music for at least two of the three choruses.
  • I could catch up on all the sleep I’m losing trying to figure out how to get all my shit done.
  • I could do the pile of laundry that’s growing hair and mold inside my closet.
  • I could watch the last two weeks’ worth of “Grey’s Anatomy” and last week’s “Desperate Housewives” on my DVR.
  • I could find the time to clean my dining room/office, which has become a repository for all things junky.
  • I could make myself breakfast in the mornings and dinner in the evenings.
  • I could maybe start dating someone.
  • I could smile more, laugh more, and enjoy the company of friends more.
  • I could see my family more often.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. What would you do if you had another 24 hours in each day?

I miss summer.

Typical Chicagoan. I’m never happy with the seasons. A week ago it was still hot and humid. Today it was in the 40s and 50s. It’s amazing how quickly the seasons change around here.

So as a way of saying “farewell” to summer, here is a picture I took at Hollywood Beach of cutie-pie Nate, who we had met at the beach this summer, gazing across the lake at all the men and the beautiful blue sky.

And… SIGH.

Some people…

My post from last Thursday touched some nerves. Thank you to all who commented, and had such kind words to say. I appreciate you all so very much.

Unfortunately, some people took this as an opportunity to jab at me, which I expected. However, one comment in particular was quite nasty, and I deleted it. I’ve never been one to want to censor, and I don’t believe that censorship is wise, but this is my blog, and if you are insulting to me, I can, and will, delete your comment.

If you have something you want to say to me that is less than kind, please do me the favor of sending it via Email. I wouldn’t go to your blog and make such nasty comments. Do me the same courtesy. Thanks.

People are sick!

I just got my Sitemeter report. Holy friggin’ crap.

My site traffic has quadrupled. In the last week, I had 3,126 hits. I’ve NEVER had that many hits in one week.

And since Sitemeter breaks down hits by the hour, I was able to pinpoint the moment that my hits started to increase so drastically.

Yes, folks, one little story about a visit to the doctor (and more specifically, not being able to piss out of your ear) later, and my traffic has literally zoomed.

Those Google searches really do work!
