Time budgeting is definitely not my strong suit. There are people much busier than I am, with greater responsibilities and more hectic schedules, who do a far better job organizing their time. Sure, my days can get hectic and often involve a lot of running around, but I have no valid excuse for falling behind on errands, chores, emails, and blogging. That last one really hurts 😥
What’s all this about? Well, tomorrow is Earth Day, and I was hoping to compose a magnificent, impassioned blog post in honor of the event. I’m trying to participate in Bloggers Unite and bring more topical and pressing issues to Museworthy. You know, things more important than, say, my muscle pulls, my cats, and my romantic longings. Not the most riveting stuff.
So where is this poetic and elegant tribute to Mother Earth? I haven’t written it! Since freaking Saturday, I haven’t found the time. Can you believe it? I suck. And I can’t throw it together right now because I’m on my blog in a rushed fashion, wedged between just getting home from work and a pile of laundry a mile high, plus mail that has yet to be opened, calls that have to be returned, recycling that has to be sorted, yadda, yadda. I’m drowning! Help! And what about Earth Day?????
I’ve been such a scatterbrain lately. Can’t seem to get anything done. Even now, I’m typing this so fast while my eyes are darting back and forth between my laptop screen and some suspicious-looking pile of papers on my kitchen table. They appear vaguely important and they’re making me nervous. What the fuck are those?? 😯
Overwhelmed as I am with mundane things, I haven’t lost my ability to upload an image. In honor of Earth Day, this is Fairies of the Meadow by Swedish painter Nils Blommer, 1850:
Happy Earth Day everyone! Go green! 🙂
