#HAWMC - Pinterest, I resist thee...
Pinterest, and I. Just. Don't. Wanna. I mean, I know I'm supposed to be doing all these wonderful social media *things* to get word out there and spread the advocacy and all that... but... No! I am tired of keeping track of one more log in, to one more site, spending countless of hours oooing and ahing over interesting Internet stuff. I mean really. I do that and I can spend all day on the computer and not a single day doing what needs to be done. Cool stuff on the Internet? There's always cool stuff on the Internet. I'm tired, and there's this annoying thing call real life that keeps getting in the way. Sadly, the garbage does not take itself out.
I just got back from a trip from Seattle... I just got over a massive kidney stone... I'm running as fast as my little legs can carry me... I've got a doctors appointments nearly every day this week... Monday (today) is botox to see if we can't really get these migraines under control and use less medications (like Advil, which can harm the kidneys). Tuesday is seeing my new pain specialist AND physical therapy. Wednesday is recovering from physical therapy. Thursday I see my GP to fill him in on everything that's been going on... Plus my brother made an emergency trip out here so he's been in the house. All my routines have been thrown to crap, and I'm trying to keep my head above water. I do not need another distraction. I only just got on Twitter... And all this while managing symptoms and keeping my body in balance, so that I can still pull off this "Adult" routine.
I have done this post today so that I fulfill my commitment to the blog event, but I am not going to participate in today's prompt. Nope. This is where I draw the line. My body, right now, is screaming, "It's NAP time, woman! The bed... it calls to us. How can we disobey?!?" And I've got to tell it, "No. We have things to do. Get those done first. Be the adult. R-e-s-p-o-n-s-i-b-i-l-i-t-y. Play time after." Pinterest is not conducive to these plans. Bless their hearts for wanting to spread the word this way, but I cannot be part of that party.
See you tomorrow!
