Green Room - Week 2 - Day 5

The poll went up last night: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1070123.html

So make sure to read, comment and vote for your favorites!

I only have a few minutes before my ride gets here, so I'll make this short. I'm not sure that I will have even a borrowed computer at work today! Hopefully something ends up working out. IT hasn't managed to get me one in *over a week* of back and forth! Yay for paperwork!

Hope your day goes better than I suspect mine might! :)

Send good thoughts, and a laptop with a docking station...

Traditionally, I've kept a running tally of who I've voted for, and how many times. Then I order the list by the number, reading from the highest numbers first, and on down the line. That way, I know if I run out of time, at least I will be reading entries I know I'm likely to enjoy and vote for, so it's less likely anyone loses out in my votes. Though, if I do run out of time, I keep reading after the poll is closed, and keep adding the numbers just as I would if I'd gotten the chance to vote, so no one misses out on having their rank impacted by my timing.

This year being the first I'm juggling Idol with a baby and being a single parent during weeknights, I don't know how much of that I'm going to be able to keep up with.

Or even writing, for that matter... This week's entry took me 5 days to write, not just because if finding time, but also because I had no idea when I selected this story for the topic I've been meaning to write up for 2 decades how emotionally challenging it would be having to relive those experiences as I brought them back to life in words. :-/

You've made me really want to read your entry! Our baby years are 20 years in the past, and I miss them. It must be so much harder doing it as a single parent weeknights. I don't see how you can find the time for the writing, let alone the reading. I know you've heard it before, but I hope you can make the time to enjoy your baby. It goes by in a flash.

Oh yes, for sure we are enjoying him - I might not always be able to make time for Idol, but my time with the baby won't suffer! He's right now at that really super fun age where he's parroting everything - makes educational cartoons (and learning in general) such a fun experience! :-)
