#HAWMC - Pinterest, I resist thee...

Okay, today's post is supposed to be some image collecting from 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!


  1. I didn't participate in this blogging marathon because of real life and living daily with Really the reason I didn't. I have hand problems and try to only spend 1 hr. per day on the computer. I totally get were you are coming from!

  2. Oh, man... I'm honored! If you only spend that much time on the computer and you still read (and comment!!) my stuff? Wow, thank you ^_^

  3. Oh I agree 100%. I too find the social networking stuff difficult to keep up with and besides, I don't really like it! I feel like I am in a minority group because it certainly seems to be all the thing. I even deleted my facebook account. I do feel like the odd man out but hey, think maybe I have always been that way. All of the 'how to blog' stuff out there suggests that we have to be on all of the social media stuff too, just don't see how that leaves much time for quality blogging!
    I am enjoying some of these posts Pamela and plan to do this Wegohealth thing next year. It is nice to take have an excuse to take new slant in our writing.
    For me, writing about depression all the time, is, well, depressing!

  4. It's funny you should mention leaving time for quality blogging. I feel like my writing has started to slip now that we're past day 14! lol I'm glad to hear that you don't think so :^D

    I think I'm going to take a mini-vacation from writing in May. I'm actually starting to get sick of the sound of my own "voice," so to speak! lol

    I do admit, this has been a great deal of fun, and I'm definitely going to do this again next year!
