Today’s a ‘the other way round day’. For once real life has come before blogging several times in only half a day, it’s really strange because usually it’ s quite the opposite – first I blog and then if I have time I work or do chores or what ever it is that I’m supposed to do. Every day there’s something to do-how come it wasn’t like that when I was younger? Is it having children that triggers it off? Or do you sometime in your life enter a loop like one of those toy tracks where the small cars just go wroom wroom lap after lap until the batteries are exhausted? Or is it because I’m stupid? To get back where I started, today I have actually made several big things here at home before I could get down to what’s really important, i.e. blogging. I love that Blogito ergo sum t-shirt paraphrasing Cogito ergo sum (I think therefore I am. Descartes) because sometimes I really think I live like that nowadays, almost two years of more or less daily blogging gets into your blood and creates some sort of dependence. Or maybe I should say habit.
