I love blogging. I love visiting other people’s blogs, reading their posts and commenting. But after my unexpected 26 day hiatus, trying to play catch up is leaving me wanting to do something other than deal with everything.
I had over 200+ e-mails waiting for me to go through them. This doesn’t count the ones I was reading and deleting on my phone. These would be only the ones I actually had to respond to, or posts I had saved to read and comment on from the blogs I follow. (I’m now down to about 30-ish! Yay me!)
I have 10 reviews that I’ve written, but need to actually put together and schedule. (I did 4 of them last night, but have to do the other 6 still!)
I have 3 books I’ve finished but haven’t written the reviews for. All three were either ARCs or books sent specifically for review. I’ll be working on those this weekend.
There’s all these wonderful discussion posts from Nicole’s challenge that I want to go read and comment on.
Besides all the bloggy stuff, there’s other things that I need to do now that I have the internet to do them with. Like say “yes I want that healthcare plan.” (well, not really, but it’s the cheapest one…) And a host of other things.
And when I look at my list of To Be Done? My brain kicks in with things I’d rather be doing. Like last night I suddenly had the thought that I wanted to play the Sims 3 again and start a new character and do something hard. (I didn’t.) I was like, Really brain? You could have done that during the time you had no internet! Why suddenly wish this now? Oh right. Because you don’t want to actually Do The Things.
I want to do all the things. But I also don’t want to do any of the things.
What do you do when you feel overwhelmed? Give me ideas all you smart and lovely people! I don’t want to procrastinate too long because I am too good at doing so on a normal basis. But I also don’t want to be in the blah zone too long either.
