Addict's New Rules

After spending two nights in a row staying up way too late blogging, I've come to the conclusion that I need to exert a little self control and not allow myself to stay up so late. I'm thinking tonight, just to eliminate my dragging thought processes and this horrible feeling of sluggishness, I'd better be in bed by 10:00. I can't produce any quick wit when I feel this way. And work suffers. Self-inflicted misery is the worst kind!

This morning when Mr. SML woke me up on his way out the door, he said, "You must be really tired since you went to bed a half hour ago."

"I did NOT go to bed a half hour ago!"

"You did too! It was really late. What time did you come to bed??"

"I don't know. I know it was late, but I don't remember looking at the clock."

"Riiiight. It was a half hour ago."

I wonder if he stayed up waiting for me. If so, why didn't he come get me then?

I must say I really enjoy blogging, though, way more than I thought I would. I feel like I'm making true friends as well as getting to know myself a little better. I enjoy writing a lot. I love trying out my creativity. I love reading all of the creative blogs I am addicted to.

It may be time for another intervention meeting over at Blogaholics Anonymous. Anyone want to join me?

Everything in moderation... including moderation.

Not a bad idea to get to bed earlier, SML. The last several nights, I found myself crawling into bed with little beady red eyes at close to 1:00am. Scott only needs 4-5 hours of sleep - I need all the help I can get!

For some reason, I thought yesterday was the 29th and that today would be the 30th and the last day for the NaBloPoMo thingy.

I like what you've said here. Like you, I feel like I've made some good friends and connections across the miles.

I normally don't need much sleep, but I have been dragging a little bit today. Sleep is a good thing when you can get it. Even better when shared.

Hi I'm Freckle Face Girl and I am a Blogaholilc. :) Yep - it is like crack.

Ha ha ha, I hadn't read the blogaholics post before! It's hilarious, with everyone filling in as if they were really there.

You're awsome, Lisa!!
:D

Genilimaa said...

Worth repeating, correctly spelled:
you're AWESOME, Lisa!

Cele said...

Well you can tell we're all in denial, it's been a month and a half since we had a Blogaholic's meeting.

I have to say Lisa, I don't know how you blogged daily. I'm in awe, I can't even blog weekly. But I read, visit, reread, repost, visit some more, read, post, post, read... what do you mean it's 2am?

Freckles is right, it's the intellectual's crack.

Cele said...

Oh Gosh I'm in total denial.

Dear Addict-this is your friendly Moroccan addict calling. It is 12:26 and I am still blogging. My eyes are closing but I can't stop blogging. I most definitely need that intervention. Soon please. SOON.

I'm not ready to get on the wagon. I need 60,000 unique monthly visitors to reach my first goal. Right now I'm only at about 4,000.
If any of you fall off the wagon, head on over.

Hi. My name is Janet and I'm still a blogaholic. It's been less than 24 hours since I was last sober. In the last 30 days, I've blogged at least once, some days twice. Yesterday, I reached a new low, though. I blogged three times in one day. THREE TIMES! I couldn't believe it. It's like I have to say something about everything all the time. Or something.

The problem is, I'm really enjoying it....

The other problem is, if I spent half as much time job searching as I do blogging, I'd probably have multiple job offers by now....

Perhaps I need a new addiction: job searching.

Oh, and by the way, I'm also terribly, terribly addicted to Pirate's Booty. I'm a Booty Head.

Okay. I'll sit down now. Wait... are those Krispy Kremes over there again?

Outta my way, sister!

P.S. Sorry for the deletion of my comment earlier. There was a major grammar error in my original comment and it was just way too embarrassing and glaring to leave it there.

Bishop Rick said...

I did something 3 times once.

Sister Mary Lisa said...

Sideon, I agree on the moderation comment!

BR, you are so lucky you don't require much sleep. I'm worthless today. And my head hurts pretty bad as always happens when I stay up too late! The suffering!

And I did something four times once.

Freckle Face Girl, Maryam, Cele, Janet, welcome to Blogaholics Anonymous. Pete, you are welcome to join our group at any time. Just don't try to tempt us from meetings.

Genilimaa, thanks for the ego boost!

Bishop Rick said...

Here I go again. Nearly 1am and I'm still blogging. Ok, maybe its time I seek professional help...next thing you know I'll be dreaming about eight legged freaks...and liking it.

Jazzy said...

Will there be more donuts and coffee??

Sideon said...

Can we do a group hug now?

I'm going to undo any progress made here and ask you what your secret is. I can't work up the drive to write anything.

Spill the beans, SML.

I'll help you get through your addiction, if you share with me the name of the Kama Sutra video...
