I Don't Wanna Wednesday

Much like my dishwasher being broken for the past week and not calling a repair person there are things I have not done on my blog cause I don't wanna. Or because.....

Why don't you have a .com?
"Well, I could have. We already have a host for our business web sites and doing it through blogger seems pretty easy. But I wasn't sure what I was going to do and for several years I have been avoiding learning how to do things on our sites because, well....  I don't really wanna. So it would take some explaining to my husband that I can get it for fun but not for earning a living." I'm still thinking about it and will probably continue to think about it somemore.
Why haven't you customized your page?
"Kind of the same reason as the last one and I haven't really had time to devote to that. I am interested in making a button but though I have some understanding of html and creating links, whenever I start looking into how to create  my own stuff I get the same feeling I do when I try to contemplate the universe. Like my brain is going to explode. I picked my template because I like green. So far it's working for me, I might manage to make it more original by the time I'm 80."

Why don't you use Adsense or do promotions?
" When I am here I am avoiding work. To me this constitutes work as it is something to keep track of. However I have not ruled it out indefinitely. It might be something I could use one day."
You like to read. Why don't you review books?
" Easy, I don't wanna read anything that I don't want to read". If I read something good I'll tell you about it.
Why don't you do recipes?
 "I always laugh when other Moms say their kids won't eat real food, they just want junk. The phrase "could we have some real food please?" is often heard coming from my childrens mouths. I am a terrible eater but made sure my kids were fed right. I do have a hand full of real meals that are very basic and nutritious but I am a whiz at frozen lasagna, box macaroni & cheese, and jar spaghetti. Once a week we have eat what you find night, that's my favorite. Kind of like a scavenger hunt where you see what everyone is having when they get to the table. And that's really it, we get to the table. We eat together at least 6 days a week most of the time. And we talk. A lot. We have awesome conversations, that is my gourmet.
Why don't you Facebook?
"It seems pointless as I will not be booking a face."
Why don't you Twitter?
"You really don't want me to get ahold of something like that."
Why don't you use  your/or a name?
"I don't use my name for privacy reasons. And as an example of how my mind works. I could use a pseudonym but for some reason I feel like I would be being untruthful. I could make something up but I don't want to pretend I'm Mary or Sue when I'm not. You know motpg is not a real name."
What do you want to do?
" Share". How great and how hard it can be to be a mom. So I wanna share my favorite song.  I tried to embed it but it didn't wanna, so here is a link. When you get there scroll it to On Up The Mountain. Though it's not what the song is about, with the exception of a couple lines the lyrics describe exactly how I feel about my life and my children."
If you wanna : )

  1. I'm with you on this stuff. I don't have a .com (I do think about it) or Facebook, or give too much personal info. I am getting a new blog look soon though and I do tweet sometimes. It's all about what you feel comfortable with. I think it's great you share with us.

  2. Sounds like people wanna get to know you better. I agree with Mommy is Green, what ever you're comfortable with sharing. You must be yourself to have an effective blog. I do use our real names cause I don't have time trying to keep up with the alias names.

  3. Excellent post. I don't tweet or do FB, either. I like blogger because it's user-friendly for me, and for now it works.

    Nicely put!


Just Humor Me....
