My mother-in-law is here to help out for the next few days. That either means that:
- I’ll be so busy getting things done that I won’t have time for blog posting;
- I’ll be such a productivity machine that I will get enough done that I can take some time for blog posting; or
- I will look at the list of things I hoped to get done while she was here, know somewhere in the back of my mind that I could not accomplish everything on this list if I made ten clones of myself and we all drank a gallon of coffee, but I will refuse to consciously acknowledge this fact and end up in a state of overwhelmed paralysis in which I end up posting to my blog all the time as an attempt to avoid reality*.
Because there is some chance that option A will actually happen, I’ll steal an idea from Toddler Dredge and do an open post where readers can ask me anything, because answering questions is a lot easier than coming up with blog post ideas on my own. (The one question I ask you to avoid is why my blog is invisible to Technorati, because every time I ask myself that question I end up banging my fist on my keyboard and using inappropriate language.)
I can’t guarantee that I’ll answer all questions, but I’ll try. So, go ahead. Ask me anything.
* Some of you may be thinking, “Weren’t you the one who wrote this post?” I know. And I’ve been great about incorporating that into my daily life. But for some reason I have yet to make the mental connection that that is not just true for every day but also for when I have help. My brain is still stuck in this mode where I convince myself that I would be capable of superhuman levels of productivity if only I had help with the kids, so when I do have help I bite off more than I can chew. Every time. Hopefully some pattern recognition will kick in here.
