Breaking Toes and Wasting Time





It’s day three of the Ultimate Blog Challenge and I’ve got nothin’. Nothin', I’m telling ya. So I’ll just tell you why I can’t write today.

My brain hurts. I had to read a long legal document to see if it says what the client wanted it to. I’ll have to remember to add translating legaleze to English to my resume.

Then I had to figure out how to change notification settings on Facebook. I mean, there are GOBS of people participating in the challenge, and every time any one of them posted their daily blog link or commented to the group, I got an email. Like every three seconds. Then I found myself distracted by reading numerous blogs while writing none.

There was a lockdown at the Capitol. I had to watch TV.

Then came sudden realization that I hadn’t Pinned, Tweeted, or Linked for a while. Still didn’t, but wasted hours on the webz.



And I broke my toe. Again. It’s ugly. I know you're dying to hear the hilarious story of how I broke my toe, and I tried to write it, really I did, but it just isn't as funny as the time I broke it by crashing into a framed photo of my ex.

  2. Love this, lol. "I've got nothing" is so something, even though it doesn't seem like much! I totally just jumped in late too, blogged about it as well. Sorry about your toe! At least your toenails are looking fabulous! (which reminds me I need to go remove the fading and chipping blue polish off of mine).

    1. Teri, in full disclosure, the pic is from the last time I broke my toe. But the polish looks exactly the same, but spotty, so maybe I haven't had a pedicure in, um, three years.? Thanks for stopping by and I'll check out your blog.

    1. Thanks so much for your kind words, Loralee! And you've given me a new blog idea - I just remembered that last break happened the day after I got fired. Surely I can make something of THAT.
