It seems like that everyday to me, although I don't succumb. I do put it on the back burner from time to time, but have stopped feeling guilty. At the end of the day it's all about prioritizing what's most important to get done each day and some days it's not going to be blogging and AR.

If that happens, it is called an excuse. When we discover something that must be done for the reasons at the time, then we do it! My morning routine consists of blogging, posting and commenting plus all the other wake-up stuff

Often.  I've come to the point where commenting on Q & A is a relaxing and fun thing to do at the end of the night.  I rarely blog anymore as my business is coming from other places.  It's just fun to come on here when I can.

Oh yes...that does happen. This has been one of those weeks with the state convention happening. I'm at the convention, and I've had a pretty tight schedule. There hasn't been any time to use the hotel pool or hot tub, either.

This may be like the farmer cursing the sun.

If my 'busy' is directly connected to those activities, putting them on the back burner is like the misguided farmer.

If however, business is not related to those activities, may your real business displace your need to spend time here.

Yes, a nice predicament.

Yes.  Blogging goes to the back burner in as far as the mandatory daily post may not happen until evening.  But the true back burner is reserved for reading and commenting.  There are more than a few days lately that I've had almost zero time to visit blog posts and comment, so I respond on my "home turf" and try to catch up later with everyone else.  The two job thing has been a bit hectic lately.
