I set my alarm to ring at 5:45 A.M. Is this early enough? Maybe I should set it to go off at 5:30 A.M.? No, 5:45 A.M. is fine. I went to bed jittery with anticipation. I tossed and turned. Maybe I should just stay up a while and just wait? I am not good with the waiting game. I hate to wait and I hate late!

I finally fell asleep for the next thing I knew it was 5:20 A.M. I woke up even before the alarm went off. I went straight to the kitchen and told the surprised Jean (for I usually get up at 6:45 am) what to cook for breakfast and what to pack for snacks. Having done the morning instructions I proceeded to my little nook and turned on the computer.

Now the actual wait begins.

I started to hear movements and voices indicating that the rest of the household is waking up too. I was so tempted to leave my fort and go see what is happening. No. I have to maintain my position ready to pounce anytime now. I stayed glued. Refreshing my view every now and then. Anytime now. I can do this. I know I can. My right hand was steady. My left hand fidgety. It does not matter. I only need one steady hand.

"Mom? We're leaving" chorused my four out of five kids. What am I to do? Do I leave my fort to bid my kids good bye or do I stay and continue my watch? I have to see them off. My son won't be back until Friday night.

I hurriedly left my stance and sprinted to the dining room to say bye-bye to my kids. Goodbye, bye-bye, see-you-friday-pleasechangeyourbeddings-tc! I was off my post for not more than 5 minutes. Hurriedly I went back in front of my computer, held the mouse and clicked on the refresh icon. Crap! Gray areas! I just missed five freaking opportunities again!

The wait begins... anew.

  1. LOL!! A blogger indeed....

    It's very frustrating no? Ay naku I gave on chasing those opps a long time ago. Kasi muntik muntikan akong atakihin sa puso.

    Musta?

  2. How's your earnings for your sponsored posts lately? :) Much as I've always wanted to create a blog and pursue writing sponsored posts, I just can't get things done, or going. Add up to that my tight schedule: either I'm writing some other things or I'm playing DoTA. hehe :)

  3. I only write for triple P and Payu2blog regularly now. I am a member of:

    Sponsored Reviews but I stopped bidding for now kasi I got busy with other things.

    Smorty kaso they're so slow at the moment so I already stopped checking regularly.

    Payu2blog - slow din but meron kahit pa isa isa here and there.

    Snapbomb - haven't written anything for them. My offers sa Dashboard ko but I have not grabbed any.

    Blog2Profit - slow din. They assign 5 at a time kaso once in a blue moon lang ako mabigyan.

    Social Spark - member ako but I have not even looked into it yet...haha. I have yet to install yung kanilang tracker/code.

    Yun lang ata. Yung ibang bloggers, they stay in front of the computer all the time siguro.

    Sige na at tutulog na ko...

    Goodluck! Chasing those elusive opps.

  4. Is that for PPP? I only had one opp with them. And I got tired of logging in and out for nothing.
    The best for me is PayU2Blog dahil hindi nauubusan. Smorty is so slow. It takes them days to approve posts!
