Blogging Is Like Ice Cream

ice cream

There are not many things that I enjoy as much as ice cream.

This weekend I was a bit under the weather, so I had to take it easy. That meant that all those chores I had on my “To Do” list went undone. You don’t really think a teenage daughter is all that motivated to do them for me do you?

Alyssa did keep me company and chose great movies for us to watch. Getting lost in the movies only made me move my eyes, so that wasn’t physically strenuous.

I also ate a lot of ice cream in the form of chocolate milk shakes. Totally not on any kind of diet, but eating didn’t require me to break a sweat either. I can’t get enough ice cream no matter how much or how often I consume the glorious concoction.

That is the same way I feel about blogging. I have been immersed in designing my new website this weekend. Every new thing that I learn or create makes me want to shout it from the roof top. As the weekend ends, my new template has me totally pumped with adrenaline.

I don’t want to sleep.

I don’t want to do anything until it is finished.

I’m going to have another giveaway for the grand opening!

I can work on the blog every day, all day and it still doesn’t tire or bore me.

It is an obsession!

I just love all the nuances of HTML, writing, blogging and creating something new on the web.

Blogging is like ice cream because I have very little self-control to restrain myself from getting too much!!!

Over the next couple of weeks, I am going to spend more time getting my new blog completed. If I seem to spend less time chatting, forgive me. I will either be deep into web design or consuming more ice cream. Look at the bright side…I’ll be happy!

So sorry you weren't feeling well. Hope you're on the mend by now. Looking forward to the new blog design.

I love icecream too but it doesn't love me. Once in a while I'll visit SweetFrog yogurt shop and get me a mixture.

Best of luck on the new blog. The weather here in Ric has been horrid –snow?!?! I mean come'on! Where was that beautiufl weather we had last week?

I got the blogging bug in November and I have to say, I'm an addict, in a good way! I can't belive your teenager didn't do all the house work, that is so unusal for that age group!!! Lol!!! Hope you are feeling better!

Blogging comes in so many forms from just plopping words for all to read and then there are the ones that depend on the income that comes from it. I too love icecream but as long as it has NO sugar in it – I am good!! I am learning so much a little at a time from blogging every day. For me it's my income to cover my husband loss of winter work. So keep on reading blogs folks because #A you can learn so much and #B your helping someone out just by giving your time.

Looking forward to seeing the new blog! And I noticed something very dangerous in the freezer aisle of my grocery store the other day….single serving ice cream tubs. (course, I previously viewed the pint sized Ben & Jerry's ones as single serve!). I tried the ones by Skinny Cow to ease the guilt (and since I had the aforementioned cold Eggos for breakfast that day – ha)…gotta say they weren't too bad. Other brands have them too.

How sweet that Alyssa kept you company when you weren't feeling well. Can't think of a better way to spend the day: your beautiful daughter, fun movies, and ice-cream!

Can't wait to see your new site. You just amaze and inspire me with your passion for blogging, sharing, and putting laughter into the lives of your visitors.

I'm glad you didn't say it was addictive, bad for you in large quantities and will make you fat, LOL!

p.s. I can't wait for the day that me and Marlie can snuggle on the couch and watch movies…sounds fun!
