Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?

One Paragraph

I want to follow the advice that those of you who commented on my entry of yesterday seemed to agree upon, namely that I should lower my standards and content myself with one-paragraph entries, if that's all I have time for. But today even that proved almost impossible. Trying to help two sets of parents, mine and my quasi-inlaws, is never easy. Today, though, it was completely overwhelming. I'm too tired to go into the depressing details right now. Suffice to say, I've been engaged in near-constant caregiving for the past fourteen hours. And I'm so tired. I even took short naps in parking lots on three occasions.

You haven't lowered your standards.

I do worry about that. But worrying takes too much time!

It IS a different way of approaching blogging but I think it has value. I was looking back over photos from exactly 10 years ago and most of them are junk, but still full of reminders of what I did that day and who we were.

That's what I've been realizing. LJ is so good for looking back at what one was up to in the past. Facebook is terrible for that. And so is Twitter. Having an archive that one can pore over from time to time is a real boon to self-examination.
