Where do I blog?

Kate, the incomparable Centsational Girl, is having a party today--a party for all of us to give one another a glimpse into our lives and to share where we blog.



So here's what I wanted to do. I wanted to tell you that I blog mostly sitting at the kitchen counter. And I wanted to link to a post I wrote about how I painted and re-upholstered the barstool I'm sitting on. And I wanted to link to a post that featured photos of my kitchen. And I even thought about telling you some of the other magical, heart-warming things that happen in my kitchen. And then you would want to read more about me and perhaps even follow my blog so that you wouldn't miss a single idea or a word of wisdom.

But you know what? I've had a day from you-know-where. Although I am sitting at my kitchen counter, I'm certainly not experiencing anything heart-warming or magical. Mostly I'm sitting here looking at this:



That's all the stuff that's supposed to be under my kitchen sink. But it can't be under my kitchen sink right now because I'm waiting on the plumber who was supposed to come earlier to fix the leak under my kitchen sink but who got the times that I was available mixed up and who had to go to another job and so I'm left with all this clutter on my counter and without hot water in my kitchen or a dishwasher. And, obviously, I'm so discombobulated that I can't think in anything other than hopeless run-on sentences.

Now, aren't you impressed? Don't you want to follow my blog so that you won't miss a single word of wisdom? Aren't you inspired?

Heaven help me.

I realize that you don't in any way see the humor in this, but the side of me that likes dark, snarkiness thought you were very funny. Waiting on service guys is the pits--and plumbers are the worst, in my experience anyways. :( I am so sorry, and I hope you get your kitchen to rights soon. If it makes you feel any better, my blogging "spot" is also in my kitchen and my sink is filled with dirty dishes. But I don't have the "no hot water" excuse. Nope. Just good, old fashioned laziness. :s

I hope the plumber gets there on the double to fix your problem. It's the pits to sit around and wait on a repair person. On a positive note, it looks like you may have dinner going in your crock-pot.

This made me laugh. We've all had days like that! I also think it's interesting to learn how many bloggers work from their kitchen counters. Who knew? :-)
