Day 3--Chugging Right Along

Prompt for Monday, October 3:  Many people have lucky socks or shirts or stones or pens.  Is there an object you own that you consider lucky?  If so, why?


List.  Because it's early, Jeffrey's been up since 4 (WHAT??) and my brain hurts.


  1. Still haven't figured out the feed thing.  From various sites I've found, this is a fairly common thing on Blogger blog lists, but there doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to it, nor an easy fix.  Yay.  So just keep writing.  I know it must be frustrating to those of you who ARE writing not to see your post on the list, but I'll try to keep an eye on the guys at the bottom (anybody want to join me in that?) and visit and comment on your blogs.  Apparently, sometimes the "fix" is just to not to anything.  Technology.
  2. I know, I know, believe me I know that y'all are craving some updated buttons.  I, too, would enjoy getting rid of the old buttons and am in the process of designing three that I think are Teh Cool.  (Spooky, Steam-Punky, and Elegant) Unfortunately, I also have to do things like take care of my sick babies, repair the damage my dog keeps doing to my garden, go to work, eat, clean my house, and sleep.  Today I go to work and hopefully there won't be twenty babies waiting on me to be photographed so that I can get home and do the buttons, but if there ARE twenty babies, that puts me home late and then there's still taekwando lessons to be shuttling the Bug to and supper to cook and all of the other Mama-related stuff that has to get tackled.  So. Yes to the new buttons, but patience is required.  If anybody else designs buttons and would like to do so, feel free to do so and share them with us.  That would be Teh Cool, as well.
  3. I'm usually not so grumpy, but FOUR O'CLOCK.  WITH LOUDNESS.  AND CHANTING.  AND DEMANDS TO PLAY THE DS.  
  4. Ahem
  5. The deadline for late entries will be the 6th, which is Thursday.  (This is also my personal deadline for buttons, a prompt list, and a list of prizes and their dates.)  I am LOVING all of the late entries, loving the diversity, loving it all, but after that date, no new blogs will be added.  Unless chocolate is involved.  Then...I might be influenced.
  6. Am I too grumpy this morning?  
  7. I'm sorry.  Just call me Grumples McButthead.  I'll try to be more perky after I've had seven or eight mugs of chai.
  8. I really do love you.  Promise.

However cool the buttons, they matter a good bit less than dealing with sick kids and too much work. We'll all live :)

4am? - anyone does that to me, I turn into a Balrog.

Not Hannah said...

Yes, RR. With lashing tail and horns and flames. It isn't pretty.

Rev Rosey said...

Plus major roaring. I'm a drama tutor and I do breath control for maximum grumpy bellowing... No. It isn't pretty. Therapeutic, mind you.

Hey, I feel everything is going poifect! We need buttons? Not me.
I'm having a ball and it is easy to just hit the sidebar and go visiting.

Ease up on yourself. Life comes first. Blogging is a HOBBY remember?

Deborah Rohne said...

Loving this opportunity--with or without buttons ;)

Take care of your family first!!

Alisia said...

Don't stress... It's all good. =)

Judie said...

No worries. Sick kids come first.

I am enjoying the opportunity that this blog challenge has provided.

Laura said...

We love you too :) (Grumples McButthead - love it!!!)

If you want a button, I could use one of the pics from my blog. Just pick one and I'll use Picasa to get NaBlo on there with 2011.

We love you too!

There is a setting for blog roll--at least I think so-- so that they come in the way you choose, by date of last post, alphabetically, or random. You may want to try that. Otherwise it's all good. Those toward the bottom of the alphabet could just post late in the day for more exposure. But I'll look toward the bottom too. ;-)

Just for fun you should make the deadline two weeks ago. That would shut alot of us up real quick like

The Golden Eagle said...

And we love you, too. :)

Trisha said...

4am is not cool. Ever. In any way whatsoever.

Selma said...

I'm not even listed at all. It's probably a Wordpress thing (I blame them for everything.) But it's all good. I'm sure I'll turn up at some stage. Haha.
