Bad Blogger Potential

IN THE NEWS: According to World Magazine, the price of zinc has risen--which means it costs the U.S Mint nearly 2 cents to make each penny. It adds up when you consider we make $80 million worth of coins and it costs us $160 million to do it. Obviously, it would make sense (no pun intended) to have maligned coins melted down, but through a U.S. Mint regulation from late 2006, it's illegal. So lawmakers are now lobbying to replace the "expensive" zinc in the penny with a cheaper metal, like steel.

I admit it. I've become one of... well, you know... one of those people.

The bad blogger.

Yeah, I usually post something here on my blog, but I've had limited time to read any other blogs this past week. So if I've neglected you. I'm sorry. Truly. But I'm going to keep on doing it until next week.

It's not entirely my fault, though. It's the end of the summer, friends of ours keep visiting, my hubby keeps taking half days off to go to the beach, we're going away for a few days soon, and my dog ate my manuscript. Okay, that last one was a lie, since I don't own a dog. But I'm sure if I did have a dog, that would have happened, too.

This morning is the only time I have to go shopping. I still have two birthday gifts to get before we go away and people are coming over for dinner on Wednesday, so I have to clean the house now. I'm actually getting stressed out over this. Stressed. I think that speaks volumes on the kind of personality I have.

Oh well. I shouldn't even be blogging about this. I need to go do "research" for our upcoming travel plans.

Hopefully, I'll have it together by tomorrow for a better blog post.

If only my husband would take half days off to go to the beach ...

Enjoy yourself, and don't stress.

Yes, have a great time and enjoy your friends and your hubby taking time off! Don't stress, from what i've read you're the queen at mult-tasking! ;o)

Quit stressing girl and enjoy! Weather will turn bad soon enough and you'll be missing the fun! Of course we miss your humorous rants but you can make it up to us.
