Greetings dear blogging buddies~ You read the title right. I"m learning about the dirty word .... moderation. This word and I have not gotten along for some time now. We continually butt heads. Every time I turn around I'm being encouraged to make friends with this word, but I don't wanna!
For some time now my eye doctor has told me to intake caffine in moderation . Ok, I can do that one. So I have cut way but on my coffee. :(
I've been trying to drink soda in moderation, a little easier than I once thought. I've been trying to contribute to charities in moderation ,both in time and money. The time thing was getting way out of hand. Trying to stitch in moderation,( because of the eye strain, sniff, sniff.) Even my feet have been trying to get me to make friends with the word moderation so I quit wearing heels. I have to eat Twinkies is moderation, oh no, not Twinkies! I think I even have red marks still on my hands from that dirty word moderation trying to rip the Kit-Kat out of my hands! But now my husband says that I need to blog in moderation. You mean I can't blog Monday thru Friday! He just said write it then leave it for the next day. Well, checking the blog 10-20 times a day IS a bit much!
Here's the thing. When I find something new to do , I do it all the time, all the time, all the time. At that point, moderatoin has to steer clear of me or else!! I've tried to get better, really I have! I really don't WANT to befriend this word, but , alas, I know I must. Wouldn't it be nice if there were some words we could just scribble out of the dictionary altogether? I can think of lots I'd scribble out, if possible. Where's my Calgon?
Anyone else having this struggle? Ahh... I see a few hands. It's nice to know I'm not alone.I'm in good company!
'til next time,
