Much Ado About A Hub

Updated on March 6, 2012

A Hub Of Frustration!

It is currently 3:26 PM on a Monday and 6 days ago, I agreed with fellow Hubbers to do "The 30 Hubs in 30 days Challenge," along with wanting to be part of the current contest for March. I have come up with several ideas, so far I have wrote...wait for it, drum roll please, NOTHING! NADA! ZILCH! Yes, you are pretty much looking at it Bub.

Procrastinate Much?

So here I sit, basically writing a Hub about my frustration and woe of daily life. Don't get me wrong, I love my life, but my job as a Domestic Engineer, Military Wife, and Home Zoo Keeper keeps me hopping. HubPages is definitely a new passion of mine, I think about it when I am in the shower, during Jazzercise, I think about it in the morning when I rise, and the evening when I collapse, when I am driving, when I am cooking, cleaning, shopping, walking the dogs, and much to my brains dismay even while I am watching Walking Dead, I try not to during church, but sometimes before church, well...


To Hub Or Not To Hub

So as you can see, my problem is not a lack of ideas, but a lack of actually following through with these ideas, just as it seems I may have an opportunity to get a Hub in, there seems to be some kind of interruption. At this point, it's not as if I can claim my stake of utmost importance to my family...Please make your own dinner, Mom just made 60 cents this month on HP, or look Honey I know you worked from 6am until 7pm, but could you please take out the dogs?! I think we just may have a Pulitzer here on this Hub on how I can't write hubs! Homework, Shmomework! I am working here! (yes I am aware "shmomework" is not a word, just go with it!)


The Clock Is Ticking...

Are you one of those "Deadline" people? I have found that I am, give me 30 days till midnight and I will finish at 11:58 on the last day, be so proud that I finished two whole minutes early, and then wonder what I am going to do with those two remaining minutes! I have found upon reaching middle age this is not necessarily a good thing, and being prepared is better, so this is my first Hub in 30! I realize this is pretty much a Hub about nothing, so to honor that there is nothing new under the sun I offer you a classic "Seinfeld Video!"

Seinfeld ( A Show About Nothing)

When do you write your Hubs?

      Heather, I think I had what was termed as an "EPIC" fail in this challenge. You, however seem to crank quality pages out at a good rate and many others wrote 30 quality Hubs during this challenge so I will cheer you on! Stay at home Heather...too cute.

      Domestic engineer! Love it! We don't have kids yet, so instead of a stay at home mom, I call myself a stay at home Heather. I'm trying to build up my hub library, so I'm hoping I can complete a personal 30 hub challenge in a few days for May.

      CrisSp Thanks so much! Wow,a Flight Attendant as well as a busy Mom! You go girl! Now you have taken on Hubbing too, your travels must give you so many ideas between all the places you go, and meeting so many different people. Welcome to HP! Thanks again for the encouragement.

      Lol! I see myself in that Hub of yours. You see, I'm pretty much a newbie here and trying to challenge myself to Hub each day but I am an FA too, so it's kind a hard but like you, I do think of it when I'm on the ground, at the airport, airborne and wherever destinations I go. Then, I'd have so much ideas especially when I'm traveling but I journal too. So, I have to juggle in between. Then I have family responsibilities too and the never-ending household chores. Ironically, I was on that same pot of "Please make your own dinner, Mom just made 60 cents this month on HP". That's so funny! My Hubs to begin with are pretty much a "let's try and see" for me as I was contemplating on "To Hub or no to Hub". I enjoyed reading your Hub though! Cheers! P.S. And oh, that Seinfeld classic? Thumbs up!

      You're off to a great start - it is the starting that is the hardest. One down. Just a few more to go. I found this hub to be entertaining. I wish you well with the rest of your challenge.
