So I’m only now realizing that it’s almost 20 days into the new year, and I haven’t posted a single thing. *laughs* I mean sure, I did take a week off for vacation and got caught up in some other things, but man – I could have sworn I’d posted something like already.
Here are 13 things that have me starting off the year so distracted:
- Skyrim. What an addictive game! This isn’t the first RPG I’ve played and enjoyed in this series or by Bethesda Game Studios, but it just may be the first one I actually complete. It’s that good. Bethesda is well known for making HUGE fantasy worlds players can openly explore for hundreds of hundreds, and where you can pretty much play it any way you want.
- My hormones. Not sure what’s been up with me lately, but sex has been on my mind an awful lot. Okay, by awful lot I mean WAY more than is usual. For me.
- My husband. Due directly to distraction #2. The poor man isn’t sure if he’s one lucky bastard or an unfortunate victim of marital sexual assault these days. I say the former (and its not like husbands get the right to say no anyway 😛 )
- The job. I just deployed a new time and resource management software system to a new part of the business this week, and have been working overtime to get prepare before we went live and afterwards to support the kinks.
- Dance Central 2. Finding the motivation to get my daily cardio in has never been easier. This game is for the Xbox Kinect, which means you there is no holding any controllers or cheating by only moving your arms when you play – you are really, truly, dancing. And burning mad calories and breaking a sweat. All the while working to improve your score and top your friends’ scores or challenge them to dance battle. It even has 2-player mode, which make my husband and I the life of the party with we bust out the game and show off our couple-coordinated grooves. Love this game!
- The bills. Let’s just say that somewhere between Halloween and New Year’s we spent way too much. Both the hubby and I have been working out a new budget plan for 2012 that will hopefully not have us in this same situation by the end of this year.
- My children. They’re at an age where they’re soaking up everything and craving interaction and attention, and there’s so much to show them, teach them and engage them in. I love how being a parent continuously challenges me to re-evaluate my outlook on and appreciation of almost everything on life, from the child’s perspective.
- The family. My family tree is more like a forest, and I swear that all of them were ready to party this holiday season. Every single weekend since like Thanksgiving there’s been a party, dinner or some other invite that I was
- YouTube. Seriously, who needs to subscribe to cable television these days? There’s some seriously funny stuff out there (both unintentionally and brilliantly done) that I wish wasn’t so easy to watch over and over. And to add insult to injury the site has the nerve to recommend similar videos.
- The fiction writing. These stories are begging to get finished, and are complaining that it’s taking too long!
- Glee. It takes a special kind of teen show to not only hold my attention, but have me laughing or yelling at the screen and constantly craving more. This show is one of them. Not sure why I avoided it for so long, but I am now several episodes into the first season and I’m absolutely loving it!
- The news. Between grown men opening fire on teenagers, mothers sexually abusing their daughters and debates about the SOPA bill, 2012 has started off with some seriously hot topics. I try not to pay them too much attention, but it’s hard not to get sucked in.
- … I’m way too distracted to come up with a 13th one.
