If you give a girl a blog.

My life is a little bit like "If you give a mouse a cookie" or "If you give a moose a muffin" which I think could actually be called ADD but I prefer to simply say I just have a lot of ideas. A lot of really fun ideas. And I want to do them now. right.this.minute. 

Here's a little bit what my day every day looks like for me: 

If you give a girl a blog, she'll decide she wants to write a post
and while she's writing a post, she'll remember she wants to edit some pictures.
When she's editing the pictures, she'll remember she needs to schedule some more photo sessions so she'll get on Facebook and write a post about how people should really get some pictures taken.
And then when no one responds, she'll take matters into her own hands ...
She'll start texting people asking if she can take pictures of them.
Talking to people about pictures will remind her she needs a photography website which will cause her to think about the fact that she has no money.
She'll decide she needs to make some which will make her want to email people about placing ads in her college newspaper, the one she's an ad manager for.
While she's emailing people, she'll remember she forgot to respond to the person who emailed her last week.
So, she'll email that person back and then decide she really needs to get a good organizational plan so this won't happen anymore.
So she'll get on Pinterest and search.
And while she's there, she'll see party planning ideas and think about how her friend's bachelorette party is coming up and she's in charge of planning it. 
Then, she'll think she really needs a nap before she starts planning so she'll take a nap.
And while she's taking a nap, she'll have a really great dream and wake up wanting to write another blog post about it ....

Whew! When I had the idea for this post, I wasn't sure I could make it come out the way I wanted it to but yep, that's about right .... anyone else have this problem?

I have this problem when I'm trying to go to bed! Then in the morning I don't want to do anything that was on my list! LOL

So, If you give a mouse a cookie was my favorite book as a kid, so the fact that you used this as an inspiration for a piece about blogging made me love it anymore. This was one of your best posts yet! Sharing it right now on twitter. Loved it!!

this is my life. i get sidetracked and then once i'm "sort of on track" WHOA. watch out.. blog posts galore. oh, also, when you give this girl a quiet space to write blog posts, she'll stay up until 3 am. and then have to get up at 5.
