Oh, great. One more thing to obsess about.

So, if you know me very well, you probably know that I grab hold of a new project like a dog with a bone and I don't let it go until I've completely forced it into submission.  Well, that's what's happening with this blog.

Every single thought that goes through my head is closely examined for blog potential.  Then, if potential exists, I beginning the worrying process that I will forget what I was thinking before I have a chance to write it down.  Because of this fear, I was carrying a legal pad of paper with me everywhere I went.  It was not a pretty fashion statement.  So, I've moved on to typing "notes" into my phone.  I have to put them somewhere, though.  All I need is more useless, trivial thoughts cramming my already overflowing brain and competing for valuable memory space.  It's just too much pressure.

And, these are just the things I want to remember for the blog.  Then there are the un-useful things that bombard me in everyday existence that are not blog worthy.  Like the homemade doggie treats for sale at the hairdressers.  I mean, really!  There has to be something to blog about that.  But.  I got nothin'.

I'm also terrified to look at anyone else's blog anymore.  If I like something they say, there is a 50% chance that I will unwittingly allow my subconscious to plagerize them - believe me, it's happened before.  As my friend, Robin quotes,
"She had a pretty gift for quotation, which is a serviceable substitute for wit." -W. Somerset Maugham
I believe Mr. Maugham was probably talking about me.

So, for the most part I keep falling back to the actions of those around me.  Namely, my husband, children and friends.  I don't know what this will be like for them.  But, I can't imagine it's going to be pleasant living as fodder for my blog posts.
