BOTB & IWSG

It's the first of September and time for another BATTLE OF THE BANDS and tomorrow should be an IWSG Post. 

As you might have already guessed by the hour alone, that isn't gonna happen here. I'm overwhelmed, over-tired, and just plum out of ideas. I'm not so sure I'll make it for a BOTB on the fifteenth of September either, but I'll try to be back by October 1, or then again, maybe not. You know me...

In the meantime go play with all the other participants. Start your BOTB fun HERE Then follow the links for the other players. 

Short and sweet, but today it's all I got. Hey, this part of the post is even a day early.

  4. Sorry to hear of your situation. I was wondering.

    Many a time have my preconceptions and expectations been given a harsh reality check that I cannot control everything in my world.

    Wishing you well and saying some prayers.

  5. Sorry you're going through "a spell" as my grandma used to say. The thing about spells is - they will pass. So, take your time...rest...relax...get that picture out of your head. Now, I say this without knowing what is going on, but I can say with a great deal of baggage and experience that time is a great salve.

    Hugs to you, FAE.

  8. >>... out of ideas

    Oh, you could have asked me for a song idea. I have more than I know what to do with. I could have sent links to the versions you should have used and everything.

    Bad, FAE! Bad!

    No sympathy for the devilette.

  9. Sympathy for the devilette!

    What screws ME up most in life is the picture of how my head is supposed to be!

    You could also ask ME for an idea. Since I don't participate in these things I have a few ideas that will never be used!

    1. Well, exactly how s your HEAD supposed to be? Ha, ha, ha!

      I tell you what, I'll take you up on that. Send me your best effort and I'll use it on 9-15. Keep in mind, it's gotta be as good that that BATTLE with 'So Nice'. Deal?

    2. Ha ha! Ok... well, have our mutual friend give you my email or ask him to give me yours. I'll send you a couple of choices with ZERO obligation to use them! Just try not to tell everyone on your blog what a nincompoop I am because my "battle" stinks! If you think so, please just don't use it! In fact, just embrace any battle you use AS YOUR OWN, and label as such.

      You come up with some great ones, as you would have THIS time if life's pressures and travails had not gotten you down and over-tired!

  10. Best wishes and I look forward to seeing your battle next time!

  11. Love the quote! Says it all really, especially on a day like today! IWSG's anniversary!
    It's because of the IWSG that I became a blogger, they're wonderful!
    But damn those insecurities just don't disappear and that quote says why!
    I'll be back for the battle next time - it's why I stopped in this time!
    Nice to meet you!

      Nice to meet you too!
