KMA2579 All Apologies

Taking a break from the Pronto Toronto series this Sunday morning to offer apologies all around for being such a terrible Reader. You guys keep coming here and Reading our posts and we thank you so much for it. Was a time I would read every post, comment, Like, the works. Then things started to drift into other uses for my time, until now you must be wondering what the hell gives! He’s the one that’s always shouting Community! Why isn’t he even Reading? Well, somehow, life has stepped in and made sure that by the time I get to the computer it’s all I can do to slap up drivel of my own before I forget about that album I’d been listening to in the car, and then I’m heading to something else, or sleep. But I mean to get caught up, I really do!

Funny, the more I resolve to get caught up, the less time I seem to have these days. Summer has brought us a myriad of activities for the kids. For example, between practice, regular game and a tournament, my boy played soccer 5 times this week. I’ve even been asked to step in as interim coach for his soccer (football) (fitba) team as his coach’s 2-year-old grandson is in Toronto fighting cancer in his brain. Imagine putting a two-year-old through chemo. Fuck cancer. My girl has a few irons in the fire too (dance, horseback riding), plus there’s kung fu and the fit kids times at the Y, and they both swim… yeah. We just follow their interests and let them do things (swim was non-negotiable. They have to know how to swim), but it does start to add up after a while! Plus all the usual things like maintaining an entire household against young child hurricanes, work, etc. Plus building projects – shelves and furniture for our boy’s room, and more shelving in the Man Cave… Honestly, by the time I get time to myself at the end of a day it’s time to go lie down to rest up for the next day. I ignore that and post up crap here, but that’s about it. Sometimes I sit and watch silly videos on Youtube and think ‘I should be Reading blogs!’ but honestly the brain capacity ain’t there by then. It’d be a disservice to us all!

So. I will get to you all. I know it. I cannot schedule it, though, it’ll just happen. I may go one site at a time, read every missed post, so if you see a deluge of Likes and comments from me, that’s what’s happened. Or I could just go through the Reader and hit each one in the order given until I’m caught up. I dunno.

Just so you know I still care and I haven’t forgotten any of you. I want to Read your blogs, it’s a highlight of each day.

Thanks, A


For now, here’s a couple of funny pics I thought might tide us all over…


This one’s not music-related but I laughed.

  1. I wish a ton of positive vibes for that little 2 year old! Life is cruel! Lets Hope for the best!
    No worries dude i was their 10-15 years ago! Yikes myself and Only started this blog stuff way after the girls were into Teenager Hood!
    Your keeping busy man and thats the important thing …
    Community is here will always be!


    • Yeah man, that poor kid. It just turns the stomach. He’s got a tumour behind his eye and docs here say it’s inoperable, but if they can get it reduced to a certain size there’s a doc in Chna who has a procedure who can get it, he’d fly in to do it. It’s a whole thing. If they can’t get it down, the kid may lose the eye. Or worse. Just UGH.

      It’s funny, you know, When the kids were smaller I did a lot more here than I do now, even though they kept us busy as hell. But right now they seem to be right in that sweet spot age where we’re going in a zillion directions, especially with the weather warming up, and of course we want to encourage them and for some reason THIS busy keeps me hopping more than THAT busy ever did. I don’t wanna wait til they’re teenagers though!

  4. No apologies necessary, man. I think we all fall off the blogosphere at different stages… life happens and there’s important stuff to be taking care of. We blog when we can and we say hello when we can, too. That’s what I reckon, anyhoo.


  5. Like everyone else, no apologies needed. It is really hard to get to everyone’s post. Too many great ones to get to all of them. We are all guilty of it so it goes without saying. Plus, spending time with the kiddos is way more important.


  6. Blogs are forever, children are just a temporary diversion. Sort out your priorities!

    Thoughts with the little 2 year old fella, that’s terrible.


    • Thank you for reminding me of my momentary weakness. Now, back out on the streets to dance for money, you ungrateful whelps, or there’ll be no more supper this week! And don’t speak to Daddy – he’s blogging! Hahahahahahaha um no.

      Yeah we’re all hoping for the little guy. I can’t even imagine.

  7. I too have many blogs I have to catch up with. It happens to us all.


  8. No apologies needed, sounds like you’re going through a lot. I’m here if you want to talk.
