Would You Believe My Cat Ate My Homework??

Oh the shame…

It’s been two days since my declaration about posting a new header and re-committing to my blog.

And I’ve got zip to show for it. Sigh.

I was feeling so guilty over this that I almost didn’t want to show my face today and post anything at all. But then the guilt over not posting anything for the last two days won out over the guilt of not having posted the new header.

Welcome to my crazy little world of procrastination, self-doubt and guilt!

But in all sincerity, I’m blaming the delay on the fact that I’ve needed some technical assistance that hasn’t been available. But things are looking up as I have begged my sister (aka html guru) for help this weekend.

Thank goodness for free help! Er, I mean family.


  1. That cat is a rascal!!!!!

    I wish I had free help, er family who knew about headers, and computers and stuff!! I'm 4 days into a problem with my website hosting provider who've somehow stuffed up my email settings and none of my email's been getting through since Wednesday!!

    I'm about to run around the streets screaming blue murder whilst pulling my hair out.... or something equally insane!

    We can only do so much without the right people on board to help us out!

    The older I get, the more I learn to question myself whenever that dastardly feeling called 'guilt' pops up. It's never really any help, and doesn't support me in feeling good about myself. Doesn't mean I still don't feel it... but at least I know it doesn't really serve any good purpose, and not to beat myself up too much about things.

    Looking forward to the header whenever it happens!

  2. OK, you need to be way kinder to yourself. Nurture and support yourself instead of blaming and being hard on yourself. All of that negative stuff is wasted emotions and energy. Be lighter!
    It is a great feeling and will give you better energy to do the things that make you happy.


  3. Thank you both for the reassurance and encouragement to give myself a bit more love and support!

    I'm slowly learning to channel those feelings into productivity rather than letting it keep me in a place of negativity and procrastination.

    It's nice to hear how two wise women handle similar thank you :)
