I think it's time that I "Out" Mommy. She likes to "Bend It Like Beckham" - what does she like to bend you might be asking - the space-time continuum.
She has completely gone to the darkside with the TV. Once she had the DVR she refused to watch live TV without bending it. She stops time, she rewinds time when Daddy misses something, and she fast forwards - she's out of control.
On the blog it started innocently enough, she pre-scheduled a post for a Thankful Thursday and hit publish while it was still Wednesday. She realized the error and went back to try to make it Thursday's post again, but it turned out with Thursday's date and still on Wednesday night.
She noticed the next morning many of my friends from other countries had been by to visit during the night, and so it began. First she justified that if she did it at 9pm our time, it was the next day in parts of the US. She cut it back to 8pm. Now she has bent it as early as 7pm!
Sure she has her excuses, she often visits with me during those hours, so if someone comes by based on my visit she thinks it's nice if they have something fresh to read. Of course if she just let time be - they would have something new to read too - it would be older, but fresh for them.
She recently noticed that the "Subscribe in an email" feature can get confused and deliver two posts at once (we only have two subscribers and one of them is Mommy). So I ask you friends - do I allow Mommy to continue to "Bend It" or make her play by the rules of the Universe? You know how I feel about rules...
