The Road to Blogging


… is paved with good intentions.

It seems no matter how good my intentions this year, nothing seems to work out.

Case in point: today I spent a good two hours solid looking for a song they’ve been playing often on the radio to use for Bee’s Love Is In Da Blog prompt. I had the lyrics in my head, but stupidly, I decided to look for the name of the song–on Youtube, no less–rather than just Google the lyrics I had. By the end of the two hours, I couldn’t even remember the lyrics because I’d listened to so many songs that weren’t the one I was searching for.

So I put the radio on.

All day.

They didn’t play it.

Unless of course they did when I was visiting my mother in the hospital. Yes, she’s still there. I hoped to track down her doctor to find out the results of the CT scan she had done on her lungs on Sunday, to perhaps see why she’s getting worse instead of better.

No luck finding the doctor.

They told me to come back tomorrow morning.

Which isn’t likely going to happen.

Because we’re expecting freezing rain for 17 hours straight. Which means Alex won’t be going to school again. But hey, maybe instead of talking to the doctor and doing the work I was supposed to do, I can take down the Christmas tree.

That’s probably responsible for all the awesome luck I’m having this year.

Because superstition.

And if that doesn’t work and I don’t show up with the One-Liner Wednesday prompt, you’ll know the ice took down my power lines.

The road to blogging IS paved with good intentions, after all.

  1. I’m so sorry your mom is still poorly! That has to be worrisome, especially when you can’t corral the doctor. I hope the freezing rain passes you by. So pretty, but SO BAD. Kind of like Charlie’s kitten.


  2. I think everybody in the US and Canada are ready for spring…and winter is just getting going good.


  3. Your road is paved with good intentions, it’s Mother Nature causing the problem. I can’t speak to why you spent so much time looking a for a song……I’ve done the same. Have a great day.


  4. It’s so time consuming trying to find a certain song. There’s one I’ve been trying to find for a really long time…no luck. Hope you find yours soon.
    Wishing your mom the best, and that she can come home soon.
    Take care and be careful with the icy weather!
    Oh, if you still have your tree set up, just decorate it for a Valentine’s tree! 🙂


  5. Think of you, I just don’t know what else to say…what do you know about the song incase I know it?
    Hope you find the Dr soon! Maybe the freezing rain will miss you and Alex will get to school. 💜💜💜


  6. That’s a fair amount on your shoulders. Hope your mom improves soon. Our tree has been down 2 weeks but it was just taken to the landfill for mulching yesterday. Glad you made it here!


  7. hahaha . So is the road to hell! Why don’t you enlist your followers to help you find your song. I would help. Freezing rain assaulting my windows.


  8. good luck to you on all of this, and if it makes you feel any better, the ice storm is here too, and i’ll be going through piles of stuff i’ve left undone as i’ll be a captive audience

  10. Good Intentions is my middle name. ADD is the cause. Google and YouTube know that and all progress gets lost in those black holes.
    Hope you’re ice is nice to you and Mom can go ‘home’ with good health.


  11. Oh Linda… I know that feeling.
    Hope you get the results for mum soon, and hope the freezing rain doesn’t cause too much bother ☔💜


  12. Lol you made me laugh with the Christmas tree not being taken down yet. Now that’s just kinda cool and so funny. Yes I have a weird sense of humour what can I say. Xox
